just seen 1 on ebay with an hour to go might get a bargain
ladder stabiliser they are calling it
You mean this one norm http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANKALAD-L...730?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item33a30fc8ba
no mate it had 1 bid at £25 and had 1hr 8mins left from time i stumbled upon it
just posted it on here to give anyone on a chance looking one a possible bargain
Thanks norm I managed to get it for £37 + £7 delivery. The seller has since emailed me to day they made a mistake, and that it has actually been used, not new as in the advert. Do you guys think I should cancel? Or ask for a reduced price?
Sounds a bit dodgy to me.
If your going to still buy it make sure it comes with all the parts and is in very good condition or you will have wasted your money.
That's what I thought Smurf think I'l leave it.
Being a little less nimble on me feet these days, and having no one to hold the ladder, i've been looking into ladder stabilisers, is the ankalad the best one to have?
I bought a standoff from ebay in case i need it.
sounds like a chancer as it clearly stated it was new and think it said free p+p if i remember as well
safest one as endorsed by pappa Smurf
I would say the ankalad stabaliser is by far the best ladder safety device I've ever used. To be honest I would not use a leaning ladder without one now as like you I work on my own and not only that is a lot more reliable and stable than even someone footing the ladder.
The Ankalad Ladder Stabiliser
An Ankalad Stabiliser secures a ladder in much the same way as stabilisers secure a child's first bike.
Correctly positioned it's impossible for the ladder to slide down the wall or side over sideways due to over-reaching - which is the real killer and cause of 9 out of 10 accidents.
Ankalad weighs just 3.6kg (8lbs) and is built to a high quality using the finest materials, namely annodised aluminium, zinc plated steel, brass, stainless steel and nylon mouldings.
If you use ladders, or if you employ people to use your ladders, can you afford NOT to use Ankalad?
Fits any wooden or aluminium ladder of 1, 2 or 3 sections
Very high quality
Extremely strong, yet very light
Provides a safe reach of up to 26ft against a solid structure and up to 14ft free standing
Folds away flat when not in use
Adjustable telescopic legs with easy find locking buttons to cater for un-even ground
Totally eliminates ladder 'bounce'
Makes extending your ladder much easier
Will TOTALLY stop your ladder from sliding down a wall or toppling sideways
