A climbing treestand was recalled due to a falling hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced November 30, 2016.
The recall is on the 2016 Summit Explorer SD Closed Front Climbing Treestand shown below.
The treestand has a metal frame, a suspended foam-padded seat in a camouflage pattern material, and weighs about 20 pounds. The recalled stand can be distinguished from other models by the size of the platform and by a bar that encircles the user and folds down flat for packing. The model also includes folding stirrups.
As of now, there have been no reported injuries, and hopefully it stays that way.
The CPSC is telling anyone who has purchased this particular treestand to stop using it immediately (hopefully you aren’t reading this from the treestand) and contact Summit at 800-353-0634 or at www.summitstands.com for instructions on returning the recalled stand for a replacement.
