I like the single folds. Not too long not to short. I use the Gorilla hangers.

I make my own. I just take a lag bolt, heat it up, give it a bend, and screw it into the tree.

The double fold ones are pretty cheap. I leave one at all of my stands. Yeah, i don't have that many stands.

Got a new one, it's a strap with multiple hooks. Don't know yet but it's worth a try. It is lighter and easier to pack, that's a plus.

I just use the $1.99 screw in tree steps. I wrap them in hockey tape to make the quiet and they work great. Cheap enough that I have 2 on every tree setup I have. Always having them there makes setting up in the dark much easier and in the evening it is just that much less I have to take down to get out quietly.

I have all sizes of the EZ Hangers by Realtree and have used screw in steps, the little screw in jiggies, and nails (on our property of course). I find that the best is the 14 inch two fold EZ hanger. The smaller one doesn't get you out from the tree enough at times and the triple is just too much without the added beef.

I like the EZ hangar (the 2 fold). The gorilla verison does not screw into the tree as easily. I take it in and out every hunt. I hang a lot of stands so instead of owning a bunch of them I have adapted to doing it this way.

I have one single fold but it doesn't get used much. Mostly use a screw in step or one of the small screw-in hooks that you can get at Wally World 3 for $2.
