How often should I replace the straps on my treestand?
We recommend replacing any straps every two years or sooner if any signs of wear or damage exist. Ultraviolet rays, other outdoor elements, rodents and tree growth can damage straps and you should always inspect the straps prior to use.
Why isn’t there a second strap supplied with my Big Foot Hang-On?
Big Foot hang-on stands by Rivers Edge are designed with Lever Action Mounting System. All Big Foots should be attached to the tree with the foot platform folded up. Once the strap is pulled tight, fold the platform down so it digs into the tree which further tightens the strap. This Lever Action levers the entire treestand into the tree making it very solid and stable. There is no need for a second strap like competitor designs. Read and understand the installation instructions that were supplied with your Big Foot hang-on treestand to understand proper installation and a better hunting experience.
My full body harness doesn’t fit me well; can I exchange it for another size?
Unfortunately we do not offer different sizes of the full body harness that is supplied in our treestands; they are a “one size fits most” design. It is not feasible to offer multiple sized harnesses in mass produced treestands. Our suggestion is to research and purchase an OEM aftermarket full body harness. There are several quality after-market harness designs available that are offered in multiple sizes.
Where do I find the manufacturing ID tag on my treestand?
Typically speaking you can find the silver manufacturing ID tag in the following locations:

- Climbing Aids- The back side of one of the steps or sometimes on the tree contact tube
How long will the TearTuff mesh seats on your treestands last?
Based on our testing, the TearTuff mesh seats that are found on many of our treestands will last many years. It’s similar material as what’s used on deck and patio furniture which has been widely used for many years. It’s UV resistant; it won’t hold moisture and simply resists deterioration from the outdoor elements. And no, squirrels won’t chew on it! Squirrels seem to prefer sewn padded seats as they are after the foam inside.
Can I leave my Rivers Edge Treestand outdoors all year?
We recommend that you only leave your treestand installed outdoors for only two weeks. If you leave it out longer than that, the elements of the outdoors could affect the safety or integrity of the stand. Things like animals chewing on seats or straps, rainy or icy weather negatively affecting the stand and tree growth stressing straps, chains and buckles are all possible and should be taken seriously. You should always inspect your stand for signs of wear, damage, deterioration or vandalism before using it. If you don’t take these precautionary measures it may lead to serious injury or death. Damage caused by any of these factors is not covered under warranty and replacement parts will need to be purchased.
