How did you start the company?
Basically out of need. I was sitting in a tree stand and that seat was so noisy and thin I knew there had to be something better. After trying to get that one replaced and a few others that the squirrels had chewed, and after only finding seats on the market that didn’t seem much better, I started the process to getting them produced. I was really set on keeping them made in the USA which is a tough task when roughly 50% of the total cost would be from the labor. We were fortunate enough to find that company and as a plus, the owner is a hunter which helps immensely in the designing process of any ideas that I bring to him.
How long have you been in business?
We started Rimlo Products LLC in 2009 with some failed products. Rimlo Products LLC then launched the Slumper seat line in fall of 2011.

Who is your target audience?
Deer Hunters that have either a uncomfortable tree stand or the seat has been chewed or weathered and instead of replacing the whole stand they just need a new seat cushion.
What is your favorite hunting or fishing memory?
Having hunted for almost 40 years I have so many, but my favorite would have to be November 20th 2010 . Not only did I shoot my largest buck, but I was fortunate enough to have my daughter in the stand with me that morning. That is really what made it special, the whole scenario of the hunt and with her being right there was priceless.
I actually wrote a blog about it. https://slumperseats.com/the-selfish-dad/ Its the struggle of me having to have my daughter sit in my stand. It was real feelings and a life lesson for me. We still sit together, she’s almost 17 years old now and I really don’t care if I get another deer or not, she does all the shooting now. She passes so many small bucks that would make a lot of hunters cry but its her choice. We truly have the best time when we hunt together!
