Question

Maximum Seat Height?

I'm 6'5" and she is 5'6", so she needs a boost in the ground blind [Doghouse] so we are at a similar shooting height. [I had to shoot her second turkey this year because she could not get properly set. Don't get me wrong, I didn't mind helping.]

Question: What is the maximum seat height when the legs are fully extended?

answer 1
I am 5'6" as well. I have this chair fully extended (legs out the ex. 9") I sit in an elevated trophy box, My toes just barely touch, just enough for me to swivel from window to window.

Hope that helps!

You can also use things like plastic tubs etc to get your feet to a proper height...between this chair and a new blind I cut a window with the broadhead and put the bolt above his back....with the right thing to put my feet on I got the right height and stability and had no problem on the next one.

answer 1
The height ranges from 17-24" at seat height....I am 5'11" and used it at its lowest in a Crossbones blind...but as I said in another post, I cut the window with a bolt and had to use a plastic dish to elevate my feet up enough to get over the window and to also add stability. .....you have to also tighten bolts occasionally on this thing.

No......don't they have a version without them? You also need to occasionally tighten some screws on this thing.

Question

After time, do the adjustable legs continue to hold up or do they start slipping under weight?

I cannot tell from the picture but it appears the adjustable legs are only held in place by a plastic lock that holds them in position by friction. This as opposed to a system that might work using slots or cogs to keep the legs from slipping.

I have sat in my chair for hours at a time. At home first, then in the woods...no sliping at all. ...so far...

answer 2
The legs (once opened) are in a locked position at the end of their range on motion, they cannot slip out of place.

Thanks for asking! The legs will hold very strongly for a long time. The bottom leg section is aluminum and the internal teeth of the adjustment mechanism is steel - so with weight applied the steel bites into the aluminum leg holding very firmly.
