I use 1/8 bungee cord with it girth hitched around one of the molle loops on the saddle. Just run the open loop of the bungee cord around the button as in the above pic. I like the bungee as it is forgiving, and when you make the loop the correct size (you only need a very small piece) it stays on the button even if you bump the stick on a climb. Equally, if you catch the stick on the tree or a limb, the bungee is forgiving. 1/8" bungee material is very inexpensive...Amazon. Good Luck!
molle loop hooks on my saddle and a short piece of paracord when i'm climbing, to pack them, i have lone wolf sticks that I stack and then lash to my backpack. looking for a better packing system though.
I have a Tethrd HYS strap that I use on the tree to hold my bow and pack. When I get to the tree, I put this around my waist like a belt and used carabiners to attach my sticks to the HYS strap around my waist.
I just painted some coghlans gear anchors (they are initially little red clips that just hang from cord or webbing and have 2 swiveling semi circles to hold gear and have two little monkey arms facing out to hang on already set cord or webbing,- I don’t know, best description I can make) and hang those from a webbing loop on saddle with some sort of cord on stick. That way I can hang whatever and then reuse it for when I hang gear at height on tree. They were like $4 with 6-8 hangers and two little cord lock contraptions to lock cord without tying and also a ridiculous amount of some bright red rope. I also just set my first stick on ground hang second stick off step of first and attach my stick with top mount platform to saddle.
i used "S" clips to my saddle and a loop of cord tied to the top of my lone wolf sticks. now im using XOP sticks and i made a sling for the last stick since they lock together i take them outta pack throw sling over my shoulder and take off one stick at a time as im going up
