You guys are making this too hard!

Take a 6 ft length of 3/8 inch rope and tie a 6" loop in one end and put a clip or carbinger on the other. Tie a small loop of rope (sturdy enough to hold the 15 lbs of stand)onto your stand on the upright just behind the seat.

Using a lineman's belt as suggested, climb to the height you want, wrap the long rope around th etree, and put the end with the carbinger through the loop. (This is just like the sfety rope on Summit or Seat o' the pants safety harnesses.) Adjust the rope so that the carbinger is about where you want the seat of the stand. Now pull the stand up with your pull rope, clip the carbinger through the little loop on the stand, and it will stay there while you comfortable get the strap around the tree and complete the setup.

Then take the rope off, fold it, and stow it in your fannypack for the next stand.
It's not rocket surgery, for crying outside!

I do the same thing. Tie a length of rope to the loc-on, tie it to your belt, climb the tree using the tree steps and using my harness to steady myself, pull the stand up and cinch down. Used to do it trying to wrap one arm around the tree while I pulled the stand up. Now I'm smarter.

Another option is to screw in a bow hanger or one of the forked tool hangers that has the progressive threads. Once you have it in place where you want the stand it's a pretty easy chore to pull up the stand with a rope and hang it over the hanger. Then just set the straps and you're ready to hunt. The use of a climber is a good alternative, but I hate to lug two stands up the mountain just to get one in place.

you can still choose larger trees, in fact,...I like to get into big old oak trees...set up just above the first set of large limbs..this should give you plenty of stability to manage hooking your stand...and great cover.......
ketch'n any?

this is my hang on stand. It is the best system I have ever used...It uses recievers. this makes it mobile. it is very comfortable.
