We trialled telescopic ladders at work but found them unstable and had a tendency to twist regards biker1

I've used this ladder stand a few more times in the field. There are several things that need improving.
1. The ladder is not that stable when climbing to attach the strap. It would be far safer to have an intermediate stabliser to attach before climbing.
2. The main attachment strap is not that easy to undo. If you are 8 ft in the air you might it impossible to undo a tight strap behind the tree.
3. The carry straps are too wide and fall off the shoulders when walking.
4. The shooting rail support bars hang loose and make a very bad banging noise when walking.
It is compact but there are major design issues that should be addressed.
