Learn More About Hang-On Tree Stands
Hang-on treestands, also known as lock-on stands, are very versatile and offer many benefits to hunters. At Field & Stream, you’ll find a great selection of hang-on stands from trusted brands like Comfort Zone®, Muddy Outdoors® and more.
Remember, hang-on/lock-on stands do not have climbing capabilities like those of a climbing treestand. You will need to use climbing sticks to get up the tree, which you can find in our treestand accessories section along with essential treestand safety equipment and more.
Many hunters prefer hang-on stands for several reasons:
- Compatible with many different types of trees
- Quiet design—they do not creak or squeak in high-pressure situations
- Lightweight portability—a great choice for hunters who have to carry the stand over long distances to reach their spot
Keep in mind, however, that the lightweight convenience of some hang-on stands comes at the expense of comfort. Some hang-on stands have small, lightly padded seats and narrow platforms—not ideal for long days in the stand. Make sure you get the features you need for your preferred style of hunting—you may be better suited by a climbing stand, or perhaps even a ladder stand if you tend to return to the same spot every season.
