I ahve never used a lock on deer stand, I got one for christmas last year and plan on using it this year. What is the easiest way to get it up the tree and lock it on in a safe manner

I take a friend and a 4 pt harness. Put up your ladder up or tree pegs in first. I tie a rope to my belt and when I get the tree stepped or laddered I have my buddy tie the stand to the rope. I make sure I am secured to the tree and pull up the stand . Step the tree higher than the stand, if using a ladder put the stand so you can step off ladder into the stand. Chain the stand with the platform up and tie the bottom  when you put the platform down it locks into the tree. Climb in and hunt. Hope this helps. Always wear a harness!!!!!!!!

When I hang a lock-on I get up the tree to the desired height however is practical (climbing stand, tree steps, climbing sticks, whatever is best). I then install a T-screw and drop my end of the rope to the person on the ground. I loop it over the T-screw and while they pull down on the rope I help pull up to raise the stand. While the stand is supported by the T-screw I secure it to the tree.

I have seen where a climbing stand was used to put a lock on stand in a tree. it seems to be the best idea I have seen yet.

I use a linemans belt. That is the simplest and safest way I have found. It allows you to lean back and put pressure on the belt and have both hands free to wrap the chain/rope and secure it.
You can run, but your gonna leave a blood trail!
