    Hey guys,

    I have been trying to think of some simple things that may be expensive or inexpensive to 3D print that would be useful.

    I saw on here someone 3D printed an SD card holder which I thought was a good idea.

    I have 3D printed Carabiner clips and am in the process of camera arm bases so they can be left in the tree, and a tripod adapter for a camera arm.

    I was just wondering if there are any ideas out there that could be used to save money? I am not asking for proprietary info of new inventions! lol

    Thanks!

    I hope you aren't using the carabiner clips for your harness?

    I've always thought it would be nice to have a small portable shelf for the treestand.

    Not for the Harness! lol. They are quite strong though.

    And good idea!

    Seen some clips that hold the safety rope to the cable/chain on a climber to keep you from messing with it and also you being attached to the tree on the way up/down.

    I also think a clip to hold your safety rope to the tree so it doesn't slide down would be nice too :)

    You should try making climbing stick holders for carrying in. Kinda like fishing pole holders

    I would have to say a holder that clips on a gun rail of a ladder stand with a drink hold, phone slot, small book slot etc.
    Make it easy to attach to the railing and out of a softer quiet plastic.

    Right now I put Home Depot nail aprons on the side of my ladder stand rails and have a cupholder secured to the railing well. So for long sits you've got a spot to put your phone, book quickly when something walks in.
    The aprons work well and I even Scotchgard them but they eventually rot out. I replace them once a year.

    For fun.

    Make face masks templates of cut outs of your favorite camo pattern as Stencil guides for your face paint. So your face could match your cloths:).

    You just strap the cut out hockey mask to your face, color in the camo colors through the cut-out holes and when you remove the mask your face will have the same camo pattern as what you're wearing.
    Make the mask thin so you can push it inside out to reverse the pattern on your face for over lapping patterns.

    Food for thought.
