    Had to clean on very wet decking today so while it was set up I took these pics to show how I get over wet decking.

    The Ali deck stops turn the other way when the decking runs the other way.
    Hope this helps some of you.

    Did a video but it won't upload.

    Sorry Posh but the feet look totally pointless as they are not dug into the slots on the decking??

    Believe me Green Pro Clean Ltd they are doing something. They turn that way coz the decking runs opposite way to the window. The spikes dig into the decking. Until you've tried em you wouldn't know. But that's why I have the foot the ladder as well but have used the deck stops like that on there own. They do work.

    Its pretty much the same principle as the ladder spikes boar uses. The metal bites into the wood better than the rubber feet. I really want both of those tools. Decking can be frightening stuff.

    i wont trust my ladder spikes on decking that lays in that direction. having said that i HAVE set my ladders up on decking like that [very rarely] but i make sure my ladders are as near vertical as i dare put them . anywhere near total vertical the risk of slip decreases a lot vert.jpg
