DICK's Sporting Goods issues recall for tree stands due to breaking seats

By  | 

DICK's Sporting Goods is recalling over 2,500 tree stands because they can break, leaving a hunter falling to the ground.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the store is recalling about 2,600 Field & Stream Timberline Hang On Tree Stands.

They say the weld on the seats can break, causing the seat to fall from the tree with whoever may be in it.

The stands are described as brown metal with a black canvas seat. The letters “HEH01566” followed by “FS080117” or “FS090117” are printed on the arm of the tree stand between the seat and the safety platform. “Field & Stream” is printed on the bottom of the canvas seat.

The company has gotten three reports of the tree stand seats breaking, but no injuries have been reported.

If you have this stand, you're asked to return them to the nearest DICK's or Field & Stream store for a full refund or store credit. If you have a receipt, it will be a refund. If not, it will be store credit.

They sold at DICK's and Field & Stream stores and online from September 2017 through January 2019 for between $65 and $130.
