--NOTE--

Guardian  Climbing Safety Systems and Angel Wingsare sold to a customer initially only as a complete system (one of the 6 above).  Once you own a system you can expand it, or replace components individually as required.


Guardian Anchor

Guardian AnchorThe Guardian Anchor enables you to easily, quickly, and safely “travel” from your stand to the ground and back by sliding the anchor along the Guardian Rope Assembly.  In the event of a fall, downward pressure applied by the lanyard at the connection point causes the anchor to lock on the rope stopping your fall.  It is constructed from special high-strength alloy aluminum with a black anodized finish, weights only about 11 ounces, and conveniently fits in most wallet-sized pockets. 
 


NewAngel Wings Anchor 

Angel WingsThe Angel Wings™ Anchor enables you to easily, quickly, and safely “travel” from your stand to the ground and back by sliding the Angel Wings™ Anchor along the Guardian Rope Assembly. In the event of a fall, downward pressure applied by the knot tightening on the rope at the connection point causes the knot to lock on the rope stopping your fall. The Guardian Rope Assembly (i.e. climbing rope shown in this photo) is sold separately. This item is a highly effective and user friendly option to the Guardian Anchor that will save the customer approximately $50.00 off the price of a system with the Guardian Anchor.

Guardian 30' Rope and 40' Assembly
Guardian RopeThe Guardian Rope Assembly is constructed from a custom designed 7/16” high strength nylon rope with stretch properties allowing the system to function in a “dynamic” manner in the event of a fall.  This means less force is required to stop a fall and you are safer.  For maximum convenience, purchase one for each tree stand site you plan to hunt.  NEVER substitute non-Guardian ropes.  This item is available in 30’ and 40’ lengths.  Rope must wrap around tree twice for installation.

 


Guardian Climbing Harness

Guardian HarnessThe Guardian Climbing Harness is a true full-body harness, comfortable to wear or even “hang” in, that never restricts breathing.  Dual connection points in both the front and back distribute the forces of a fall equally through the hips and legs, keeping you upright in the event of a fall.  The harness is designed to allow a hunting jacket to be worn on top.  The shoulder and hip straps are independently adjustable.  Rated for use by persons weighing up to 250 lbs. and adults over 5’4” tall. 

 


Guardian Lanyard

Guardian LanyardThe Guardian Lanyard serves as the connection between your harness and anchor.  The double connection points to the harness allow for relocation of one snap at a time from the front rings (climbing) to the back rings (hunting), and vice versa so you NEVER disconnect from your safety anchor.

 

 

 


Guardian Adjustable Climbing Lanyard

Adjustable Climbing LanyardThe Guardian Adjustable Climbing Lanyard allows for constant connection to the tree while initially installing tree steps, fixed-position tree stand, and the Guardian Rope Assembly.  (Subsequent climbs should occur connected to the anchor and rope assembly.)  The main section of the lanyard encircles the tree attaching to the harness’ dual connection points.  The third leg of the lanyard can be placed over obstructions, such as limbs, and snapped to the harness ring.  The leg that is below that obstruction can then be disconnected and moved above the obstruction.  This lanyard can be adjusted while climbing to allow for varying tree sizes.  End to end the main leg of this lanyard is 63" long when fully extended.

 


Guardian Climbing Stand Lanyard

Guardian Climbing LaynardThe Guardian Climbing Stand Lanyard allows for constant connection to the tree while climbing and hunting with a self-climbing style tree stand.  The unique “choke” ring on the lanyard allows you to easily climb with your climbing stand while anchored to the tree in a manner that was never before possible.  When you reach your hunting site the lanyard becomes your anchor point.  This lanyard can be adjusted while climbing to allow for varying tree sizes.
