The Rivers Edge Lockdown Wide Ladder Stand is one of the most comfortable stands on the market. It features an extra-wide flip-up TearTuff mesh seat, providing all day comfort and the ability to stand while shooting. In addition, this wide 17’ ladder stand features the Ultimate Shooting Rail that can be adjusted for both height and length based on your personal preference and weapon choice. This unique design also allows you to tuck the shooting rail away into a designated slot on the platform, perfect for bowhunting. Lastly, you can lock it down form the ground. Ratchet the platform tight to the tree before ever leaving the ground, with the patent pending Ground-Level Ratcheting Technology. This clever system allows the user to pull the platform straps up to the top of the stand while standing on the ground and ratcheting them tight to the tree.
