The Aero Hunter Tree Strap is used to create a life-safety anchor on the trunk of a tree.
The Aero Tree Strap is a length of climbing rope with a small loop tied on one end and a large loop tied on the other using a figure 8 on a bight. A prusik friction knot is tied on the rope using 10mm accessory cord. A double locking carabiner is clipped into the eyes of the prusik for safe connection to your saddle belt. You can adjust the length of the Tree Strap by pulling the rope through the prusik to shorten it, or by pulling down on the prusik to lengthen it. This is a self-advancing system that works easily using one hand.
The standard length is 6 ft with all knots tied.
It's important to set the tree strap on the trunk so that it does not slip.
