    Hi guys

    Right think I've found my ladder it's 10 rung triples 6.12m from BSP ladders, has safety bar at the bottom. Should be high enough for gutters.

    Next I wanted an ankalad. But found one at Midlands ladders called ladder brace. Looks the same as ankalad but it's £60. Anyone know much about them?

    Thanks guys

    Think that's a bit short forsafely clearing gutters, 10 triple

    Been using that ladder brace for over a year, it's ok, the retaining clip broke, one section snapped off and needed replacing. might be more diy aimed. maybe it's worth paying more for ankalad if you can afford it but I've got used to this brace

    Ankalad is 100% hse rated and bloody strong
    Don't know about the other one but safety is worth the extra money

    How long is the 10 rung triple?
    My 1w rung triple lytes were 8.5m which is plenty to do gutters on a 3 floor townhouse so 10s can't be that short

    10 is just shy of 7m which is enough for gutter work.

    Not fitted the brace yet but looks ok. Was torn between this and ankalad.
