Summit Releases Lightweight Hang-On Stands and Bracket System

BIRMINGHAM, AL, January 7, 2019 — Summit, a leading manufacturer of premium-quality, high-performance treestands, safety harnesses and ground blinds, is excited to announce the release of the Featherweight and Featherweight Switch hang-on stands and Switch Bracket.

The new Summit Featherweight Switch Hang-On stand weighs 17 pounds but will hold 300 pounds. The Featherweight Switch comes equipped with a super comfortable and quiet 2.75- inch padded seat and features a large, adjustable platform measuring 28 inches long by 23 inches wide. The Featherweight Switch can be hung on trees from 8 inches to 20 inches in diameter.

The lightweight aluminum stand is ideal for quick setups, thanks to the included Switch Receiver. Simply install ladder or step sections to a tree and attach the Switch Receiver at the desired treestand height. Then, pull up the Featherweight Switch Hang-On and quietly insert its metal tongue into the Switch Receiver for fast and simple stand installation. You can buy multiple Switch Receivers to have pre-installed on trees in your favorite hunting locations for fast stand transitions when deer change patterns. Or, use the Switch Receiver as an anti-theft measure by taking your stand with you, while leaving the receiver in the tree for your next hunt.

Summit is also launching the Featherweight Hang-On stand. The Featherweight weighs in at a mere 16 pounds and will hold up to 300 pounds. Like the Featherweight Switch, this stand also features a comfortable and quiet 2.75-inch padded seat, features the same large platform measuring 28 inches long by 23 inches wide, and will also fit on trees from 8 to 20 inches in diameter. The Featherweight does not use the Switch Bracket, but instead features traditional mounting gear.

The Featherweight has an MSRP of $199.99 and the Featherweight Switch has an MSRP of $219.99. Additional Switch Receivers cost $29.99 each;
