  • I got a ladder tree-stand for my birthday. After setting it up and securing it to the tree, of course in the rain, I noticed dur

    I got a ladder tree-stand for my birthday. After setting it up and securing it to the tree, of course in the rain, I noticed during the initial climb that the ladder rungs don't have any grip to them and with muddy and wet boots I almost broke my neck. Any suggestions or products they make to put on the ladder for traction?

    You can get adhesive backed material at hardware stores that has a textured surface that is used for stairways. That would help some. My ladder stand is the same way and I think you kust have to be careful mostly.

      There are tons of grip/safety/anti slip/pool tapes out there that will work.

        DSM has some good tips, but I would just add that if your boots, or whatever footwear you hunt in, are older and the tread is getting worn down, that could be more dangerous than the stand rungs.

          I would use the black two foot pipe covering for plumbing piping. It is already split down the center. Pull the paper off both sides of the split so it glues together and then duct tape each end. It comes in different sizes and it should be quiet.
          Stop at a plumbing supply or a home center. Good Luck.

            Go buy some grip tape (AKA Skateboard grip tape) it's cheap and lasts nearly forever.
