MAIN Trex Opro In Realtree Edghe

Weighing in at just 21 pounds, the True North Treestands (TNT) T-Rex self-climber in Realtree Edge camo is a stand-up/sit-down style all-aluminum stand that features True North's new patent-pending "T-Rex” toothed dual-cable design and the Rapid Claw attachment system. This cable design, which allows it to be used with or without the T-Rex teeth, provides a balanced point of weight distribution across both cables, which prevents the teeth of the cable from rolling over when in use. These teeth bite aggressively when engaged into the tree bark, but they release effortlessly for smooth climbing. The toothed cable also reduces the threat of the treestand sliding.

T-Rex Teeth

In addition, contrary to single-cable designs which offer minuscule contact with the tree, the dual-cable design, when used without the T-Rex teeth, offers a more even distribution of weight across both cables, which leads to superior contact with the tree. Further, the Rapid Claw attachment system allows hook-up time to be seconds, thanks to turn knob locking spring pins.

Turn Knob

The T-Rex foot platform, which measures 22-inches wide x 32 1⁄2-inches deep, consists of T-Rex “Scaly Skin” expanded metal, that is fully welded at all contact points for a completely solid and silent one-piece structure. Once reaching your desired climbing height, two LD cam buckle straps are used to lock the climber in place for rock-solid and secure performance.

This extra-large self-climbing stand, which was designed with the bowhunter in mind, offers an easy push-back suspended padded seat in the Realtree Edge pattern. When pushed back, the platform can be used in its entirety, providing everything needed for safe, quiet, and comfortable hunts over your preferred hunting site. The stand folds flat to six-inches for easy packing.
