Good morning I'm David McCool with hurricane safety systems. And I'd like to introduce to. You today our flagship product it's a tree stand attachment system called the tree stand power lock by hurricane safety systems basically. What this is essentially is a device. That we've developed after the glass two years. It is a tensioning device. You can see here basically. How this works is and you'll you'll see. This square frame is simulating a tree stand frame we've developed a couple Universal brackets. That attach to the tree stand frame. And we also have one for a center post but. You don't see that here so here are the brackets the tensioning device the power lock itself can be used with a drill. Or a ratchet I'm gonna back. It up here so you can see. This pretty clearly. This is the tensioning device again we've been in development of. This for about two years within the tensioning device. What we've created is a micro plush. And this micro clutch provides. What we call calculated radial extraction that's the amount of force. That we are sucking the tree stand to the tree so as. You can see it's got a very healthy size sturdy hook on. It and what happens is. These universal brackets. That you would attach to your stand the power lock simply clips in as. You can see here and the gearing in. It is fantastic we say I'm. Even tightening with my fingers. You can use a ratchet a wrench of. Any kind to do this so. You open the tree simply take our chain pass. It around the tree I'm going to use the drill with.
This thing you're gonna see. That the micro clutch is very similar to the clutch. That you find in a drill so. If you've got a preset amount of clutch. Where this thing punches out you'll get feedback. Imean audio feedback on. It you're going to hear. That with this product right. Now I'm going to show. It to you we simply just start. It you can see the cable is coming in is retracting in. We come forward on it. And you hear that the minute. You hear that that means. That our power lock has flushed out at about 400 pounds again of calculated radial extraction so the advantages of. This very safe product. Because you're working in front of. You're not reaching around the tree to pull the strap tight getting off you're always working in front of. You have left-to-right adjustment.
Now we're advocating. That you use your strap. That the power lock is a backup system but. We believe it is the world's. Most technically advanced safest tree stand attachment system. And we're very proud to bring it to market for more information please contact hurricane safety systems. You can go to the web. And find us there or w/e hurricane SS com.

And nice touch a lifeline assembly is really simple attach the upright to the base with the three-inch bolt — orange washers to regular washers. And the not take note. That the orange washers go against the upright not the regular ones snug. It up good but it still has to bend without a lot of effort next install the seat using a four. And three-quarter inch bolts — washers in. One night please take note. That the orange washers are already installed in. This step the seat should move freely but still have. Some resistance to hang the stand first install the m102 s receiver to the tree by attaching the ratchet strap to the receiver via the bolt on the right side make sure top is up before securing to the tree completely next slide the standards at the receiver removing the art clip first. Once the stand is seated properly reinstall the our clip. You can attach the lower ratchet strap to the upright near the base tighten.

All other top manufacturers the m50 by millennium is a really nice hang on stand in my opinion for a little over a hundred dollars. You get a very nice wide comfortable seat a huge platform to move around on a building footrest for all-day comfort. It comes with a lifeline. They do provide backpack straps. You could pack this stand in. And out at 20 pounds. Ifeel it's a bit heavy for a run-and-gun application but for the reason. Ibought it to hang. It sits for the whole season. Or maybe only end up moving at. One time this is a really nice stand for your money so go check them up.
