DANVILLE, Ala.  (Sept. 18, 2015) – In response to customer demand, Hunter Safety System now offers a LIFELINE that accommodated stands up to 44 feet high. The new LIFELINE 42 is ideal for hunters that are filming their hunt and need to have a cameraman in a higher stand and for those hunters that like to hunt from higher locations.

More and more hunters are discovering that using the LIFELINE not only keeps them safer, it truly makes treestand hunting more convenient and actually gets in position to hunt more quickly.

“We have found that if a hunter uses the LIFELINE just once, they’ll want one on every treestand,” said Jerry Wydner, Co-Founder of HSS. “It just makes a night-and-day difference.”

The new LIFELINE 42 features the company’s latest technology of the woven-in reflective strip that makes locating a treestand in the dark as simple and quick as pressing a flashlight switch. It also features the Recon Carabiner in a new sound-dampening Cow Bell Cover for absolute stealth while climbing and hunting.

In the past, hunters that chose to be in stands above 30 feet would have to climb 12 feet or more before hooking up to their LIFELINE. This is extremely dangerous because statistics prove that 86-percent of all treestand accidents occur while climbing in and out of the treestand. With the new LIFELINE 42 this is no longer an issue.

The LIFELINE 42 completely protects the treestand hunter from the risk of life threatening injury when getting into and out of the stand and is hands down the simplest, safest way to stay attached to the tree from the ground to the stand, during the hunt and back again. The LIFELINE accommodates stands up to 44 feet high, and the Recon Carabineer is rated at 3,500 pounds.

The LIFELINE 42 will be available only online at The suggested retail price will be $49.99 for a single attachment point and $59.99 for the tandem.
