Summit Announces Featherweight Hang-On Stands and Bracket System

posted on January 7, 2019

Summit has announced the release of its Featherweight and Featherweight Switch hang-on stands and Switch Receiver bracket system.

The new Featherweight Switch Hang-On stand weighs just 17 pounds but will hold up to 300 pounds. It comes equipped with a comfortable, quiet 2.75-inch padded seat and features a large, adjustable platform measuring 28 inches long by 23 inches wide. The Featherweight Switch can be hung on trees from 8 to 20 inches in diameter.

The lightweight aluminum stand is ideal for quick setups, thanks to the included Switch Receiver. Simply install ladder or step sections to a tree and attach the Switch Receiver at your desired treestand height, then pull up the Featherweight Switch Hang-On stand and insert its metal tongue into the Switch Receiver. Multiple Switch Receivers are available for purchase to have them pre-installed on trees in various hunting locations for fast stand transitions. The Switch Receiver can also be used as an anti-theft measure by taking your stand with you while leaving the receiver in the tree for your next hunt. The Featherweight Switch has an MSRP of $219.99, and additional Switch Receivers cost $29.99 each.

The Featherweight features traditional mounting gear and has an MSRP of $199.99.
