    Been awhile since I last posted...but now that I purchased a set of Summit Bucksteps, I have to ask: How do you keep these darn things quiet while walking to my stand? Anybody have a pair that they managed to silence? Once they're on the tree, they're great. Any ideas?:frusty:

    You do have the bag that comes with them to put the strapping into right? All I could suggest after that is bungee cord those bad boys tight as you can for the trek to the stand.

    PlastiDip Paint

    I did try some PlastiDip, which looks similar. PlastiDip is a painted-on rubber coating like they put on the ends of hand tool handles. The can says it helps eliminate vibration and dampen noise. Well, not on these it doesn't!

    I looked them up (so never tried them), but here's a post from a Cabela's customer review that did what I was going to suggest you try.

    I use friction tape. It's sticky on both sides, black and not a heartbreaker to buy or replace. I wrap any metal on metal parts that clank on most of my hunting stands, straps and climbing devices. Sometimes I have drilled holes bigger to recieve wrapped metal S- hooks.

    i usually leave my stands up so i dont deal with that. public land is open season on anyting that you leave out so i usually just hunt out of a ground blind or natural cover when im on it. the people around here are big time thieves for some reason. some sort of tape would be the only suggestion i can come up with.

    I have 2 sets and they still make the occasional noise but I wrap them tight and put them in the bag. take a little longer and going slower also helps.
