    a while ago i saw somewhere a well known ladder make ,that has a small safety latch where you can lock the rungs when the ladder is extended (so the ladder cannot come apart)
    this would make them ideal for the times you have to heave a complete double ladder up and over a flat roof for example

    anybody know what make it is?, im blowed if i can remember

    I have one I bought in Belfast, Northern Ireland like that. Though I think BPS's ladders have them. I can't confirm as their web site isn't working well right now.

    BPS trade ladders have them fitted as standard also a stabaliser bar at the bottom of the ladder too.
