    Are they easy to fit on the ladder? Looks like I'm gonna have to drill it to get them to fit

    Why are you going to drill? Is it a short ladder or is it a new ankalad design?

    If you don't want to drill holes in your ladder then could can get some threaded bars steel rods that go through the 1st & 9th rung instead. That is how both my ankalads are fitted to the ladders as they came with the ones I bought.

    The instructions that come with it say you have to drill it on to the ladder which I'm not to keen on.

    The ladder is a year old.

    The threaded bars sounds a good idea

    They use to ship them with 2 fitting kits including the threaded bar so not sure why they have stopped doing this but is probably to do with cutting cost.

    I was thinking that too but who knows :rolleyes:

    I never had threaded bars steal snap on me yet as It's just as strong as a nut & bolt surley?
