    Does anyone use them. Had a look at them on eBay & there about £20 but can't work out how you would fit them on your ladder unless you drill a hole in your ladder to screw them on. Surely this would weaken your ladder or do you fit them another way?

    You have to buy the right feet for you make of ladder. Otherwise it could have the opposite effect and make them very un safe. Not all type of ladders can have them, mainly the ones that are domestic rated.

    I have ladders which already have them built in.

    Brilliant though, saved my life so many times, as they have rubber grips underneath them.

    So basically if I bought some I need to drill a hole in my ladder to fit them on. That's what I thought.

    i bought some ladders from midland and they came fitted as standard. But like boarcity says, not brilliant in wet conditions, particularly on decking. Other than that, they serve me well especially with ladder mitts top end. oh by the way, I'm new here, so hi everyone.
