We have a lot of avid hunters here in the Tri-State, so you may want to take note of this.  Field & Stream Timberline Hang On tree stands are being recalled, as the  weld on the seats can break and cause the seat to fall from the tree, which poses a fall hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission,

The tree stands are brown metal with a black canvas seat and are used by hunters. The letters “HEH01566” followed by “FS080117” or “FS090117” are printed on the arm of the tree stand between the seat and the safety platform. “Field & Stream” is printed on the bottom of the canvas seat.

 

Dick's Sporting Goods

At this point, there have been three reports of the tree stand seats breaking.  However, no injuries have been reported.

These particular tree stands were sold at Dick's Sporting Goods and Field & Stream stores nationwide and online from September 2017 through January 2019 for between $65 and $130.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission asks that if you have one of these stands, to immediately stop using it and return them to the nearest Dick’s Sporting Goods or Field & Stream store for a full refund or store credit. Only customers with a receipt will receive a full refund, those without a receipt will receive a store credit.
