****** Page 10 ****** SETUP AWARNING It is required that at least three people initially set up the ladder stand. Always use two helpers! AWARNING This ladder MUST be held in place while it is ratcheted tight and while the top ratchet is put into place. Do not use until all straps are securely attached. AWARNING Never use this ladder stand on dead, leaning, diseased or loose barked trees. Never use on a utility pole or on trees that have any obstructions that may limit treestand use. Never rely on a tree branch for support. 1. Using helpers, lean the stand up against the tree. It may be helpful to have one person pull on the free ladder straps as two others walk the ladder upright. Make sure that the platform is sitting level to the ground when it is against the tree. 2. LIGHTLY bounce on the first rung to seat the ladder column into the ground before use. Have your helpers hold the ladder to stabilize it. 3. With the ladder held in place, take each long strap and bring each back around the tree. Let them cross so they form an X on the back of the tree (figure 37) 4. Connect the left strap to the right ratchet buckle and connect the right strap to the left ratchet buckle. Pull the free end through the ratchet strap as shown in figure 38. Repeat for both ratchet straps. 5. Do not tighten until both straps are in place. Alternate between each ratchet until they are both tight. Do not overtighten. Figure 39 shows the completed main strap setup. Note that the two long straps run to the INSIDE of the Platform to Ladder Bars. AWARNING You MUST now put on your safety harness if you have not already done so. ALWAYS refer to your harness instructions included with this stand for proper use of your safety harness. AWARNING YOU WILL NOT be connected to a safety rope / strap while you climb into or out of this treestand. USE EXTREME CAUTION while ascending or descending the ladder. TAKE YOUR TIME and do not hurry. AWARNING Always maintain three points of contact when you climb the ladder section of this stand. 6. Have two of your helpers hold the ladder in place. Carefully climb the ladder. Once you are at the top, before stepping onto the platform, IMMEDIATELY attach your safety strap and harness to the tree. 7. Secure the Platform Ratchet Strap by running the free end around the tree and then through the ratchet strap. You may have to fold the seat down to reach the strap. PG 10 37 39 38 AWARNING Never jump or bounce on any other part of the treestand in an attempt to force the platform to seat into the tree. NOTICE Summit recommends the use of the SOP Climbing System Accessory with all ladder and hang-on treestands. For more information please visit our website summitstands.com or by calling 256- 353-0634. summitstands.com

****** Page 11 ****** USE AWARNING AWARNING ALWAYS check every ladder section connection every NEVER disconnect from your safety harness or safety time you use the stand. If any ladder sections are line while you are using this treestand. separating – DO NOT USE THE STAND! 1. Climb up and before stepping onto the platform IMMEDIATELY attach your safety strap around the tree above your seating position. ALWAYS refer to your harness instructions included with this stand for proper use of your Summit Safety harness and Safety Strap. 2. The length of the harness tether must be minimized at all times. It should be adjusted so that it is above the head with no slack (snug) in the sitting position and you should have the minimum amount of slack possible when climbing. 3. The Gun Rest can easily be adjusted by loosening the two knobs on each side, moving the rest, and retightening. CAUTION DO NOT use the Gun Rest Bar as a hand hold while climbing into our out of this stand. MAINTENAjvcE AND CARE The seat on this ladder stand is removable. We recommend it be removed and stored in a dry place when not in use. The powdercoat finish applied at the factory is very durable and should only need touch ups in areas of heavy wear or accidental impact. The powder coat is applied only to the exterior surfaces of the treestand so it is possible for some surface rust to form inside the stand tubing. This is normal and should not affect the durability or performance of the stand. This stand is made from Steel and as a result, rust may develop on any uncoated part of the stand – including any area that has been nicked or scratched to the bare metal Should you damage any part of your Summit Treestand, contact your nearest authorized Summit dealer or the factory to obtain the proper corrective action procedure and/or replacement parts for the treestand. CAUTION Look for nicks, gouges, cuts, cracks, bends, corrosion or similar damage that can be the result of improper use or accidental damage. For instance, this could occur if someone else used the treestand without knowledge of its proper use, or if the treestand were dropped, hit by a motor vehicle or subject to corrosive conditions, etc. Summit Treestands have the highest structural integrity by design, material selection and manufacturing techniques, but as its owner, only your continued care will assure trouble free performance. When the above-mentioned guidelines are followed, your Summit Treestand will provide years of successful hunting. HARNESS suspmvs10N It is necessary and very important that someone knows your hunting location and time of return. It is also very important that you carry (on your person) emergency communication devices such as a cell phone, two-way radio, whistle, signal flare or preferably a PLD (Personal Locator Device – FCC approved July, ’03). When triggered, a PLD will transmit an emergency signal to local rescue teams identifying your location via satellite GPS coordinates. PLD’s may be purchased at Wilderness outfitters or on the internet. Suspension trauma or blood pooling can occur when suspended motionless in a harness for periods of time. This can lead to unconsciousness and death. A suspension relief strap is furnished with your harness. Read your harness instructions to assure that you know how to use it. AWARNING If you have to hang in the tree before help arrives, you need to exercise your legs by pushing off from the tree or by using the enclosed suspension relief strap. See the treestand harness instructions and the enclosed instructions for more information. Self extraction may be necessary in the unfortunate situation that (A) no one knows your location, (B) your communication efforts are exhausted, (C) you are confident that you have the strength, dexterity and ability to perform self-extraction and (D) you decide this is your “absolute last resort”. It is recommended to carry a device to assist with this self-extraction. Simple devices such as screw-in steps or a rope “Tree Descender” (available from Summit) will allow you to remove the weight from your harness. This may enable you to return to the treestand/ladder/climbing steps or slowly descend the tree. Several optional products/systems are available that offer self-recovery or self extraction from a fall when suspended in a harness. Returning to the ground obviously also relieves suspension trauma and some systems automatically descend the user while others allow user control. If one of these products/systems is selected for use as an additional safety precaution against prolonged suspension, be sure to follow the manufacturers’ directions for safe use. PG11
