  • Introduction The ComfortQuest SW4x6 Hunting Blind fits on any 4 x 6 platform. If you dont already have a plat-form or stand you can build one using the following drawings and instructions. This manual provides detailed step-by-step instructions, drawings and photos for constructing and assembling a 4 x 6 Plat-form and 12 Wood Stand. The stand is designed to be attached to a live tree that is 10 inches in di-ameter or larger. It can be used with the SW4x6 ComfortQuest Fabric Blind and Aluminum Frame.

    For best results, it is important that all instructions are followed carefully and all steps are completed accurately. It is assumed that assemblers using this manual have basic woodworking skills and are familiar with the tools outlined below. Fail-ure to follow these instructions carefully may result in an unsafe hunting stand that could cause injury or death.
