    Found it on midland ladders for £39 (http://www.midlandladders.com/products/Basemate_Professional_Ladder_Leveller-275-25.html)

    Not sure its exactly the same as the one in the video tho as it dont mention the quick connect feature, seems you bolt this one onto your ladder permently??

    They are brilliant - was looking at one Saturday - a local chap has one, and it is so easy to use - no good for points, but great on standard ladders - and makes it more stable

    Really thinking about getting one, did the one you see bolt to the ladder? or was it the easy connect version like in the video?

    and just out of interest why would they be no good for points?

    Sorry - should have said - he one I saw bolts to the ladder, but the points are too wide for it to fit.
    Also the stiles need to be parallel, not splayed.

    I think the one shown in the Vid would be fine on points.
