Dave Holt


This is a true story from Dave Holt’s 2002 hunting trip to Africa:

The Location:  South Africa – Near the famous Limpopo River

The Wager:  R100 ($10 US)

The Rules:  I have two minutes to put an EZY® Climb Tree Step into a tough, old leadwood tree.

The Results:  Within 30 seconds, just a few feet above the ground, I’m standing with my full weight on that single step just to demonstrate its strength.  My professional hunter friend, Ian, is totally amazed, not to mention R100 poorer.

Around the world, I count on EZY® Climb Tree Steps.  I’ve found none to be sharper, stronger, or more dependable.”

Jeff Murray

“The name of the game of big time treestand hunting is being one step ahead—not behind—of the deer.  In my opinion, a definite step in the right direction is the EZY® Rod by the Cranford Manufacturing Company.  Strong, efficient and safe.  A definite bull’s-eye.”

John Kasun“Being a full time outdoor writer with a photographer wife who also hunts means we spend a lot of time afield. To make the best use of our time it is important that the equipment we select for our personal use is the finest available. When it comes to tree steps we want something that is quick, easy to use and above all safe. To fill that bill we use nothing but Cranford’s EZY® Climb Deluxe Steps and the EZY® Climb Detachable Tree Step depending upon our hunting situation. The superior screw design means quick and safe installation under a variety ofSandy Kasun conditions. In addition to great performance Cranford’s Tree Steps also provide great service as I still use some of my EZY® Climb Original Tree Steps which are over 20 years old.

"Best is a word that is often overused today.  Bill KrenzBut after 20 years of hunting with a wide variety of different screw-in steps, EZY® Climb Tree Steps are indeed the best I've ever used.  What does that mean?  For me, EZY® Climb Tree Steps go in easier and faster than any others.  And with their solid design and beefy construction, the truth is that I feel safer going up and down with EZY® Climb.  Easier, faster and safer - that's how I define the best in tree steps, and the best I've seen and used is EZY® Climb."

Paul Brunner"I will NEVER use any other tree step but EZY® Climb.  There is  none better -- in design or in quality! American made, with American steel, they will never let you down . . . . with a crash!  Don't shop price on something which could cost you your life -- shop QUALITY!"

“I’ve been a believer in EZY® Climb Tree Steps  since the first time I used one hand to screw one into a frozenPat Kurkin oak in December.  Before using your products, I always assumed a hunter needed a lot of brute force and tree-hugging ability to screw in tree steps during winter.  Thanks for making my tree-stand hunts safer and easier.
