    a common problem i have with tradding on ladders is the ladder comes into contact with gutters on what i would want to use as a safe angle....and being ali the ladder leaves marks on the white gutters...

    i have up till now used duck tape...but it doesnt last long.. i want an inch thick piece of rubber/plastic to stick on the back of my ladder...any ideas...?

    okay, i give up , i will have to get a standoff...before you all tell me off....:rofl:

    With the money I saved on a second hand microlite and ankalad, I had enough to buy a new BPS ladder. Get on ebay mate, theres plenty going at the moment. I just found out that Ankalad are made in a town about 20mins from me, should be good for spare parts.
