Two companies are recalling climbing tree stands because of a fall hazard.

Both recalls involve the cable assembly that allows the tree stand to release, posing a risk for falling, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Global Manufacturing Company is recalling about 5,300 units. It involves the 2014 API Outdoors climbing tree stands model GCL300-A (The Marksman) with batch numbers 9G-0114 and 9G-0614.

Big Game is recalling about 12,200 of the 2014 climbing tree stands. It involves three models: CL050 (The Outlook) with batch number 9B-0414, CL100-A (The Cobalt) with batch numbers 9B-0214 and 9B-0514, and CL500-AP (The Fusion) with batch numbers 9B-0214 and 9B-0514.

According to the CPSC, Global Manufacturing has received one report of the cable releasing, which resulted in a hunter suffering a broken vertebra, a fractured rib and a sprained shoulder.

CPSC reports another hunter experienced injuries to the knee, wrist and hip while using one of the Big Game models.

The API Outdoors tree stands were sold at Menards and Rogers Sporting Goods nationwide and online from June 2014 through June 2015.

The Big Game models were sold nationwide and online from June 2014 through June 2015 at Bass Pro Shop, Cabela's, Menards, Rogers Sporting Goods, and Sportsman's Guide stores.

CPSC says people should stop using the recalled tree stands and return them for free replacement cables.

The batch number starts with BN and can be found on a small tag located on the frame below the seat.
