Default Summit stand broke

I have a Summit Viper that is around 5 years old. I noticed today that the weld that holds the diagonal brace where it meets the platform broke. I don't know how this happened. Any ideas? Have you ever heard of this happening before? Now I need a new tree stand.

at least you are paying attention

you can't really trust ANYTHING

take the time to check it

being rich and driving a wheelchair is not worth the money

as for the climber that is aluminum so its gonna wear at some point, its light and brittle

I called Summit. They are sending me another platform. Good company.
