    The ladders will be fine but I would leave them on as they don't weigh much then whenever you come across gravel or decking you can use it to be safe

    Thanks for your advice.The problem is they are for a self employed cleaner that works for me part time and reading between the lines he doesn't want to bugger his ladders up if we go our separate ways in the future and I want ankalad back

    I drilled mine in - it's quite a permanent sort of fitting but you can take it off
    The ladders would have a small hole in but it would not weaken them
    It's a great bit of kit when cleaning gutters high up or doing roof work
    I would not recommend it for regular trad window cleaning
