I picked up a used realbark single man tripod blind a couple days ago. It didn't come with rails but has mounts for them. Trying to find something to buy before I make something. Anyone know of any universal rails that might work? I can get some pics/measurements later when I get home today but it is about a 3 foot circular platform.

Going to build something. The old mounting slots are 1in so hoping to buy 3/4 inch square tubing and bolt them down that way. Probably a wooden rail up top to tie it all together but keep it lighter.

My tripod had a rail but I added 2x4 railing at top & bottom and covered it with used barn tin. Looks good, keeps me out of sight and out of the wind. 2x4 rail along the top is an excellent shooting rest.


There's only 2 seasons in a year. Deer season and getting ready for deer season.

Cattle panels work fine. 4"x4" or larger squares both will work and you can u-bolt or zip tie them to the base/together. Just add some pipe foam insulation or split some tubing to add on the top edge for comfort or rest.
