Anyone do anything creative to strap the top and bottom parts of their stand together while carrying in woods?

The foam insulation that you use on water pipes works well. I used to just snap it on. I put a little Gorillia glue on the pieces now. They stay where I put em.

I had that noise problem with my API Grand Slam...it turned out to be mostly from the chain hitting the inside of the stand.


I fixed it by replacing teh chain, straps, and stand with a Summit Viper.

Haven't had the problem with the Viper but on my old metal climbers and ladders too, I drilled a hole just big enough for the end of a tube on the expandable foam and shot em full, everywhere there wasn't a bolt or something needed to slide. worked pretty darn good too.

Had the same problem with my API. Also, the black plastic coating had been peeling off, making more noise and creating more shiny surface for deer to see. I just bought some liquid plastic from Home Depot and dipped the chain in it. In the photo, the black is the original plastic and the red is the liquid plastic. Works great now.

Never met a Summit that I liked as much as my APIs. Climber considerations are so personal - everybody seems to have different needs.

By all means check out the lone wolf climbers! I've climbed trees within 50 yds of bedded deer and they never knew I was there! YES...they are that quite!

Any of the hollow tube climbers will make lots of noise that you won't even realize until you hunt with a Lone Wolf. My .02 worth.

I put both top and bottom together and drill a hole through both and put in a bolt with a wing nut to tighten them together.Works better than straps

For about $20 you can get something like neoprene tape made by hunter safety systems for the metal parts on tree stands. Havent got mine yet but my bruddy swears by it.

the green strap that comes with Summit stands is one of their most valuable assets. Cinch that sucker down correctly and it is together! You can get a similar strap at TSC. It is red with a black buckle.

Alot cheaper to pull the chain all the way out to the end before transporting. Then, strap the bent inward chain down along with the stand. This used to drive me crazy too till I figured this out. If you have an old API you want to get rid of with rattling chains, let me know. \:D

Now that season is over, I am going to identify any places my stand clanks together while climbing/ back packing/pulling apart and packing back up.

Clean with rubbing alcohol then spray a thin coat of rubber auto undercoating in those locations.

It worked great on the area where the cable attaches to the stand. Shouldn't add much weight either.

Update.

Rubber undercoating never fully cured. It was dry to the touch but kinda gummy and tar like. Wore most of it off on a 2 day hunt in LA. I think most of it ended up stuck to my hands.

Cant recommend the stuff.

Try the Rubber Spray, it is similar to the rubber you can dip tool handles into. I sprayed an stand with it and it lasted several years.

I think I bought the stuff @ Advanced Auto.

Plinker,
You have a brand name? I just used the cheap spray on rubber undercoating. It might cure up ok if applied in hot weather.
Can said apply above 70 degrees. It was 68 the day I sprayed it then took it into the garage for the next several days.

Might be user error.

Summit climbers are nice but when you get older like me, nothing compares to a hang on. I love my Millennium Hang On. You can buy several hanging blocks and then have several stand locations while only using one stand.

I've often wondered about that Rhino liner or something like it I've seen it for sale by the quart and gallon and seems to me it would stand the test once it's cured.

A side note a guy I know sprays great stuff in all the hollow tubing of his stands to deadin the sound that they make. It works pretty well.

Been doing the great stuff trick for years. Works great.

Just make sure you don't fill a tube where you insert a cable or have moveable parts! \:D

You could also strategically squirt dabs of silicone tub sealant at the contact points to dampen the sound...

My Summit clanks sometimes - it depends really on how well I do of positioning them correctly when nesting them to pack in/out.

Easy fix is to just find where they are rubbing/clanking and wrap that area with rubber electrical tape.

I use the little bungees with the small round ball like they attach tarps to carpot type hangings....these come in plastic container with other assorted bungees and also are sold separately. I use one on each side and they are quick to get on and off and keep the stand completely quiet!
