Just a little story for you. My lockable ladder clamp finally gave out. Its been in use for many years and the thread in the bolt was so worn it stripped. So off to Halfords who wanted £31 odd for a pair. That seemed too dear to me so I gave it a miss and got a pair off ebay last night for £12.50. They are new and identical to the ones Halfords were selling. Whats the matter with Halfords these days? The place is as big as an aircraft hanger, about six staff working in the store and I was the only customer in there and I didn't buy anything. The last few times I have been in there I have been put off by their prices. They must be suffering from the competition on the internet. A lot of the cleaning products that were useful for pressure washing and conservatorys seems to have gone as well.
