My old Summit Openshot, the kind where the seat is wider than the platform has got a creak I can't get out. I think it's in the seat part , I hear a creak when I take pressure off of it standing up. I've silenced the whole stand 8 ways from Sunday, I used the soft side velcro to line the tubes and locks where the cables go, wrapped the cables up past the the swages with camo mesh tape, put the velcro at every place I could find where I had metal to metal contact(I can put the stand on my back and jump up and down with zero sound) , the grippers on the seat part got a mesh tape wrap but I didn't want to do the platform part for safety. I didn't wrap the cables on the part that contact the tree, will that shrink wrap make noise?

Have y'all ever had one that creaked and how did you find it/fix it? Thanks, Iglow

Mine got to doing that where the straps of the seat went around the metal. I turned seat around and it stopped. Maybe that would work.
