Tree stand steps tend to be 2 main types
- Strap-on steps
- Screw-in steps
A recent addition is to have glowing steps!
The advantage of these steps is that they are fast to hook up and lightweight for easy transport. Some of them are strength tested to 500 lbs.
These steps usually fold up for easy storage and transport and are constructed out of steel with stainless steel rivets.
Some are shaped like a letter T to make it easier to screw in by hand.
If they are left screwed in year after year they should be inspected regularly as the wood can rot around the screw and the screw can fall out when under load.
