Hunter Safety offers extension limb

January 12, 2010 at 03:37 PM

DANVILLE, Ala. ─ Before each season, hunters scour the woods for weeks and months in search of the perfect tree that provides optimal lanes for game traffic. However, all too often after the season starts, the monster buck that’s only been seen on the trail cam steps into view outside the planned shooting lane. As many hunters have found, the ability to rotate to the target while drawing a bow or aiming a firearm can be hampered by the very tether that ensures their safety.

The treestand hunter’s fall-restraint system is the most important piece of hunting gear that he owns, but it requires constant connection to the tree. It is that connection that can prevent full 360-degree shooting. Hunter Safety System has eliminated this problem with the introduction of the new 360 Extension Limb.

Perfected after a full year of field testing, the 360 Extension Limb is a reinforced steel branch that attaches to the tree in place of the standard tree strap. The 360 Extension Limb allows the tether to move freely and silently above the hunter, providing for easy shooting in any direction, while automatically adjusting to the direction of the shot. Should the hunter lose footing or balance and falls out of the stand, by design, the tether slides down the 360 Extension Limb and comes to rest against the tree for a quick, safe recovery. The patented design attaches to the tree by way of proven T-Screw technology, and a strap provides added security.

The 360 Extension Limb also provides a rock-solid platform for attaching the included accessories. For the bowhunter, a 180-degree articulating arm keeps a bow always ready, and for the rifleman, an overhead rope sling steadies a rifle’s movement. The 360 Extension Limb also comes equipped with a camouflage umbrella for sun and rain protection. The 360 Extension Limb (including all accessories) is available at retailers nationwide or online at http://www.hssvest.com for $69.95.

I purchased 4 of these units. They work great! I have one at each of my stands. The Rod you’re talking about that you connect your harness to is 1/2 inch rod, VERY strong! I shot a nice 8pt Buck behind me last year as I turned around to shoot behind me and I had no problems with the teather strap binding up or getting in the way. My Buddy and I also like the umbrellas as we were waiting for the rain to pass, we were able to keep dry along with our bows, as they hang underneath the umbrella. I would highly recommend this product.
