    Has anyone replaced the hardware on their lone wolf climbing sticks?

    Straps for maintenance only from me. I think a washer is due as I've got a piece losening. I usually check/tighten everything at the end of the season.

    Lately I've been thinking of mofifying to change my sticks from straps to rope.

    Given them a call if you have questions i.e need parts.

    Those fold down steps dimple bad. They should sell replacements for that.

    Ya i noticed the steps on mine dimpled. I got to order new straps for mine. Ordered some from amazon and they weren't factory lonewolf straps. They frayed putting on to my stand .Sent them right back .

    I've replaced versa buttons and straps on several sticks. I've had a bunch of sticks where squirrels chewed the heck out of the versa button and I figured it was easier to just replace than worry about failure. I did have some of the old chinese sticks where the steps dimpled a bit beyond what I was comfortable with and they replaced the sticks for me. Call them, you might be surprised at how helpful they might be.

    I've removed and replaced the hardware to install Stealth Strips on my sticks, and have replaced a few Versa Buttons for the same reason as Rick James. Damn squirrels. Straps get swapped out every couple of years for new ones as they wear out. I've also put new seat kits on my stands, installed footrests and replaced a couple of cables as well. If you take care of your LW stuff and replace the little hardware as needed it will last you a lifetime. I have stands that are well over a decade old and work every bit as well as my new ones.
