Tree Stand Lock

3 posts in this topic

He guys just thought I would let you know that I was at wally world this past week when I came across a new tree stand lock called Python made by master lock. It was camo, and looked cool, so I was checking it out. Well I wondered how it worked, so I was playing and by chance I took a key from package 2 and inserted it into lock #1. Imagine my surprise when it opened the lock. So I looked at all 4 hanging there and they all had the same key. Not sure if this was a bad batch, but I wouldn't trust losing a stand to a lock that everyone had a key to. Just thought I should share.

Good tip on a good product. It certainly would work nice on those public spots. However, your best bet is to remove your stand on public land if there is a chance of it being taken. Good luck all!

I am fond of a lock/cable I picked up at a bike shop. Its a kryptonite cable which is plastic coated. The first one I bought had a padlock on it and I used it to lock in my auger and house in my old pickup w/o the topper, until it got exposed to an icestorm...

After a half hour with frozen fingers and lock deicer and no luck I was able to cut it with a vice grips with cutters, but it took me twenty more minutes of knawing through it. The next one and one I really like has a combination lock on it.

To bad people aren't all honest or have dignity and we have to go through all this crap, huh...

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.
