WARNING! If your hunting location is unknown by anyone and communication efforts
are unsuccessful, you must have a personal plan for self-recovery/escape should you
experience a fall. Prolonged suspension in a full-body fall arrest harness can be fatal.
It is important to exercise the legs by pushing against the tree or doing other forms
of continuous leg exercises to avoid blood pooling while being suspended. Varying
degrees of physical fitness may require different plans for self-recovery/escape the
effects of prolonged suspension. Have a personal plan and practice it in the presence
of a responsible adult before leaving the ground. No one escape/ rescue plan will work
for every hunter, on every tree, in every circumstance. Only you can determine the best
self-recovery/ escape plan for your hunting situation before leaving the ground. There is
time to make a correct decision on what action to take if a fall occurs while wearing a
full-body fall arrest harness. It is important to remember, DO NOT PANIC. Remain calm
and implement your practiced rescue, relief and recovery plan. Hunt from the ground
when a self-recovery/escape ability is absent. Failure to follow these instructions may
result in serious injury or death!

or renders you incapable of self-recovery and/or a suitable escape plan is not available,

FULL-BODY FALL ARREST HARNESS INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING! READ THESE X-Stand™ TREESTANDS FULL-BODY FALL ARREST HARNESS INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS! YOUR NEW FULL-BODY
FALL ARREST HARNESS IS DESIGNED FOR A MAXIMUM CAPACITY (USER & EQUIPMENT) OF 300 POUNDS (136 kg). ADDITIONALLY, YOUR NEW FULL-BODY FALL ARREST HARNESS
MUST BE REPLACED AFTER Three (3) YEARS OF SERVICE! REPLACE YOUR HARNESS IMMEDIATELY SHOULD YOU EXPERIENCE A FALL WHILE WEARING IT.

Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious injury or death!
STEP 1. Identify the main parts of the full-body fall arrest harness (see Fig. 1). Hold the
full-body fall arrest harness by the tether loop ensuring the harness is upright and leg
straps are hanging down. Straighten any parts that have become twisted. Insert arms
through each shoulder strap. (see Fig. 2)

loop. Repeat with the right leg strap, feeding between legs and through right waist loop.
(see Fig. 3)

This instruction manual complies with the Treestand Manufacturers Association’s Standard Test Method for Treestand Fall Arrest Systems.
ATTENTION!! WHEN YOU SEE A “ WARNING!” BE SURE TO HEED THE MESSAGE!
THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THESE MESSAGES CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE!!
STEP 3. Secure the two leg straps by threading the 3 bar buckle as shown in Figure 4.
Tighten the leg straps snuggly. DO NOT over tighten as this will cut off the circulation to
your legs. The X-Stand™ Treestands full-body fall arrest harness should look like the one
depicted in Figure 5 when done correctly. Note : If leg straps are too long, feed left leg
strap with buckle through bottom of the left waist loop, down the top of the right waist
loop and secure to right leg strap with 3 Bar Buckle as instructed.
WARNING! It is very important to complete this Step of the assembly. Improperly
secured buckle may cause full-body fall arrest harness failure resulting in serious injury
or death! If there is not enough strap available to complete this step, DO NOT USE THIS
FULL-BODY FALL ARREST HARNESS! You may need to purchase and use a larger specialty sized full-body fall arrest harness that complies with industry standards recognized
by the TMA.
STEP 4. Once you have reached your desired height, insert the tree belt through the loop
of the tether. (see Fig. 5) Then, carefully wrap the tree belt around the tree at a height
that allows just enough slack for you to sit comfortably in your stand. Keeping the tether
as short as possible limits the distance you will travel in the unlikely event you should
experience a fall. To secure the tree belt insert free end up through the slot in the buckle
closest to opposite end of the tree belt, then cross over the sliding mechanism and back
down through opposite slot. Pull on strap to secure and test to make sure sliding mechanism engages creating secure strap placement. (see Fig. 6, 7, 8)

FIG 11
FIG 12
Although no one plans to fall from their treestand, falls can and do occur without
warning. It is important to become familiar with the guidelines below and practice your
recovery plan att ground-level. Failure to read, understand, and follow these Steps may
result in serious injury or death!
WARNING! There is time to make a correct decision on what action to take if a fall
occurs while wearing a full-body fall arrest harness. It is important NOT TO PANIC!
Remain calm and implement your practiced rescue, relief and recovery plan. Failure to
follow these instructions may result in serious injury or death!
WARNING! A suspension relief device must be on your person and readily accessible
while using a full-body fall arrest harness. This device will allow you to relieve the
load on the lower extremities if suspended in a full-body fall arrest harness and help
maintain circulation in the legs and mitigate suspension trauma (blood pooling). Follow
all instructions below regarding the provided SRD (Suspension Relief Device) and NEVER
remove it from your full-body fall arrest harness. Failure to follow this warning may result
in serious injury or death!
STEP 1. After a fall, take a moment to catch your breath and stay calm; DO NOT PANIC.
STEP 2. Pull on the SRD strap located on the lower back side of your full-body fall arrest
harness. (see Fig. 9)
STEP 3. If you are able to reach your ladder or climbing system, use it to get back into
your secured treestand and then carefully climb down to ground-level. If you are not able
to reach your stand, remain calm and continue to stand in the SRD loop until help arrives.
(see Fig. 12)
STEP 4. Adjust the SRD strap so that you are able to step into the loop and then stand up
relieving the pressure on your lower extremities. The loop size can be adjusted by moving
the buckle up or down. (see Fig. 10 & 11)
STEP 5. Use your personal locating device or cell phone to call for help.
NOTE: Several optional commercial products/systems are available that offer selfrecovery or self extraction from a fall when suspended in a full-body fall arrest harness.
Some systems automatically descend the user while others allow user control.
One of these products/systems can be considered for use as an additional safety
precaution against prolonged suspension and suspension trauma. Be sure to follow the
manufacturers’ directions on the safe use of these products/systems.
To activate your product’s warranty, a registration card (found in the back of this manual)
must be completed and returned to the manufacturer within 30 days of purchase.

FIGURE 7
Note: Ladder Sections A and B are identical
WARNING! DO NOT attempt to install
this product on a tree that is not straight,
healthy, and devoid of dead branches,
limbs, vines, or anything that might
interfere with the installation. DO NOT

tree that is leaning, diseased, crooked,
has loose bark, or does not meet the
minimum installation diameter of nine (9)
inches (23 cm) at treestand height (i.e.
seating platform height) or exceeds the
maximum installation diameter of twenty
(20) inches (51 cm) at treestand height
(i.e. seating platform height).
Failure to follow these instructions may
result in injury or death!
Install the snap pins from the outside in.

sure all straps are tight before each use.
FIGURE 15
STEP 9. Once the Jaw
tightening cables are crisscrossed around the back of
the tree and run through the
eyelets on the lower bark
biter tree pieces, then attach
the two (2) Jaw tightening
cables to the two (2)
carabiners on ratchet strap
B assembly (Fig. 15). Next,
attach the S-hook on the
opposite end of the ratchet
strap to the dedicated
location on the bottom
ladder section (Fig. 16).
