Default never let another one of your stands get stolen again!

its a simple lock, but i always see stroies of people getting there treestands stolen, you can push it through your 2 stands than around the tree... they seem pretty secure, and what are the odds someones carrying a lock cutter through the woods.


if you want one you can get it as the sportsman guide website, or cabelas its made for treestands and wont hurt them.

We lock all of our stands up, but it seems people come back and will cut them down from time to time. Not a common occurance, but it does happen.

Here in So. ARK. a lot of thieves carry bolt cutters for just such a lock. But I still lock mine up with a similiar lock to that one.

God Bless

Not that I am aware of. Mine are constructed of 3/4 inch steel braided cable, and they are not bolt cutter proof. But I wish I could find some that are.

God Bless

Cables are easy to cut, bought a bunch of these from Sportsmans guide. It shows they are out of stock right now but others may carry them. Eye bolt screws into tree and locks over eye bolt. virtually impossible to steel.Have them over my ladder stands.

Michael, wow! I think even if i did have bolt cutters and i was intending to steal your stand, once i saw 3/4 in cable. I wouldnt waste my time nibbling away at cable that big.
