    Ive got some ladder mitts but they are lose when u pop them on, i was wondering how to attach them?

    Ive seen nly a demo from wagga where he cut them totally in half, the first half were worn in the video and used to be attached by bolts, then he was drilling a hole through the mitts and ladder stile and attaching a zip strap. I dont know quite what to do for the best. :confused:

    just push em on top. they don't come off. take em off at night though, or they'll get nicked.

    Thanks, i wonder why i didnt think of this :laugh:

    They're really lose, i can see they would slot onto some ladders but mine are quite thin as i only use them on small houses. I'll give it another go, maybe they will stay on as you say, cheers :)

    Just duct tape around the top of the ladder stiles to thicken them up a bit, and then put the mitts on as usual.

    try using window sealing silicon inside the mitts and push em on.if not, like u said drill through,2x bolts 4x large washers so the bolt head and nut don't push through.
