WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 78,000 hunting tree stands because they can unexpectedly collapse.


The CPSC says the strap mounting brackets on the recalled Big Foot and Lite Foot Series tree stands can come loose or rotate, causing the strap hook to release and the tree stand to fall to the ground.

There have been three reports of hunters falling to the ground after their stands collapsed. Two of the hunters were seriously injured.

The recalled hunting tree stands are “hang-on” stands that can be identified by a yellow warning label affixed to the stand that reads: “Rivers Edge Hunting Products.”


The tree stands were sold in hunting stores and catalogs nationwide beginning in January 1998 for between $60 and $120.

Consumers should contact the manufacturer, Rivers Edge/Ardisam, Inc., to receive free replacement hardware for self-installation.

Call (800) 204-7435 or visit the company's Web site at Rivers Edge/Ardisam, Inc.
