    Is it an A frame? If so, why compromise the extra wide safety feature just so it will work on the ladder mate. The are other ladder footing devices just as effective that will fit the wider feet.

    Mine didn't come with that
    It came with small bolts that you drill through stiles
    Only just long enough to go through and put the nut on
