Protect Yourself From Treestand Related Falls…

… & Harness Suspension Trauma


Treestand Emergency Descender System

Did You Know?

  • Over 50% of all hunter accidents nationally are treestand related.
  • Statistics tell us that one (1) out of every THREE (3) hunters will fall from their treestand in their lifetime.
  • The sudden stop created by a treestand safety harness when falling can put over 1,800 lbs of force on your body, causing potential injuries to your back, neck, ribs, and other internal injuries.
  • Suspension trauma, also known as harness hang syndrome, can occur in less than 10-minutes, with the symptoms of suspension trauma occuring within only 5-minutes!
  • When suspended from a treestand safety harness, blood begins to pool in your legs after a few minutes. Your heart rate starts to increase to draw that blood back to itself, but is pumping even more blood into your legs at the same time. Given enough time, two (2) things will occur:
    • The stress on your heart will lead to a heart attack
    • Lack of blood (oxygen) to your brain causes you to lose consciousness and lead to brain damage or death.

Federal Testing

We recently utilized a federal testing agency to test the force applied to the body during a treestand fall using our Treestand Wingman™ as compared to a harness only. Using the industry standard performance test, the results demonstrated that the Treestand Wingman™ SUBSTANTIALLY reduces the force applied to your body during a fall.

Industry Standard Performance Test Results

Harness Only

  • Mannequin: 220 lbs
  • Fall Distance: 52-in
  • Force to body: 1,133 lbs

Harness w/ Treestand Wingman™

  • Mannequin: 220 lbs
  • Fall Distance: 52-in
