The Tree Tread™ Tree Stand is a patent pending design based on a fixed position tree stand or (lock on), with two platforms in lieu of one. The second platform is used as either a step or a seat. Unlike other stands, the Tree Tread™ stand places the person's shoulder at the tree - other stands place the back of the hunter at the tree. It can be configured to bolt together either left handed or right handed. Using multiple Tree Tread™ Tree Stands, you can turn a tree into a spiral staircase. If you already own a fixed stand, you can easily add one, two, three or more Tree Treads™ to create different vantage points for one or multiple hunters.
