I am going to build a new blind for next season. Is there any substitutes for elevator brackets?

There's another company out there that makes a similar product that actually goes on the corner instead of the side but I can't think of the name and they are about $30 more than the elevators from what I recall.

Built this last fall with the elevators and it is rock solid.

I used the E-Z Tower brackets when I elevated one of my blinds. I liked the fact that the brackets themselves helps support the weight not just the bolts.

Used elevator brackets here. Very easy and super sturdy. 10 foot long legs.

I've used Elevator brackets, too. Is there a reason you DON'T want to use them? Academy has them in stock online for $75.

That's a good deal. Think I paid $89 at Cabela's for mine. Might go ahead and grab another set for my next build.

There are a few brands but the elevator brand seems to be the best buy. Bought and used one set for a blind in Missouri. Fixin to get some for the platform for my Maverick blind.

Just build a platform instead of just using legs. Then you won't need the brackets.

My son saw them and then welded some for us. He used tubing that fit a 4x4 and angle iron for the connectors. He even put an angle to them for support. Worked great.
