Ever hauled a tree stand on your back up 20 feet of sketchy ladder? It's no backyard barbeque. That's why expert hunter, Russ Kommer designed the patented Hoist'N Lok™ Tree Stand Hoist to get your gear up the tree fast and easy. Simply secure the hoist in the tree, attach your tree stand and gear to the included carabiner and hoist it up the tree. To lock off the load, pull, then shift the rope to the side and feed. A lobed, knurled cam locks the load in place. To release the cam, pull the rope to the opposing side and the mechanism will disengage.
