Rust on Cables
The rust has no effect on the structural integrity of the cables or stand and is safe to use. Refer to the outlined in the written instructions.
The life expectancy of the cable cannot be determined without first knowing the amount of use that the product will have.
These cables are normal wear items and should be replaced as needed. (This is a Consumable goods item)
The sole purpose of the plastic coating on the cable is to eliminate noise. After some use you may notice some abrasions, peeling or possibly cuts in the coating. This coating does not affect the performance or safety of your treestand. It is there to eliminate unnecessary noise when sliding the cable down into the tubing. Replacement tubes can be purchased at www.summitstands.com
It is VERY IMPORTANT to inspect all cables to ensure that there is no sign of corroded, frayed, damaged or broken strands. DO NOT USE IF THE CABLES HAVE BROKEN OR DAMAGED METAL STRANDS! Call immediately to order a replacement if this should occur. QUICKDRAW SPRING 7 CABLE BRACKET NOTICE Based on usual taper - in order to ensure the platforms are level at hunting height, the front edge of the treestand (the edge away from the tree) should be 4-6 inches higher than the edge against the tree (see figure 12). The treestand seat platform attaches above the foot platform and should also have the same basic angle as the foot platform before you start to climb. !
