Talon Hunting Hang-on Tree Stands recalled over fall risk

Talon Hunting Hang-on Tree Stands are being recalled after four reports in the U.S. that the brackets failed, resulting in falls and serious injuries.

This recall involves Talon Hunting Hang-on Tree Stands with Brackets/Straps by Summit Treestands. A safety label sewn onto the bracket reads "Treestand Strap Assembly".

The tree stand can unexpectedly detach from the tree when the brackets fail, posing a fall hazard to consumers.

The firm in the United States has received four reports of the brackets failing, resulting in reports of falls and injuries including broken bones.

Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these tree stands.

Consumers should immediately stop using the brackets and contact Summit Treestands to receive a replacement bracket/strap.
