So far have found that that is the biggest complaint on this tree stand along with missing screws/bolts.  Also, screws/bolts not label.

Keedah, welcome to Talk Hunting!  I was doing some web surfing and I think I found that exact same YouTube video that PJ referenced.  Here's a link to it in case it is a different one.  Like he said, the guy's vocabulary is a little less than desirable so don't be watching this with the volume up when the kids are around.  The actual assembly starts at about the 2 minute mark of the video.  I couldn't see anything else out there with any better instructions, although there is a Guide Gear video that is simply an advertisement for the stand - you might be able to pause that at a few points to see how everything is laid out once it is assembled.  Best of luck with it - keep us all filled in on how you do this season!

It seems like a lot of things like that do NOT have decent instructions for assembly.  Welcome to talkhunting

Keedah - One thing that we have been doing is to put it together at the site where we are going to put it up at. I know this sounds crazy but we started this practice many years ago. We started putting the stand together at camp then, taking it down and taking it in sections where we were going to mount it at. With all of us in the club very familiar with the stand and the small tools we will need to put it together we will now take the box and tape it up so we don't loose any parts and take it to the location where it will be mounted, yes in the woods!!! This seems to work out better for us these days....

I have to agree with PJ that the biggest complaint is lack of instructions in putting it together, only experience can help you in that case.....

Good Luck.....
