    yes nice kit ,if your going to charge proper prices people need to see the investment.....actually the thing on the bottom....well .....in the eighties when i was starting out on my own i decided that the current ladder design was not good enough....so i thought about what i wanted and that thing on the bottom was near enough what i came up with....so i went into Manchester to the patent library and checked if anyone had patented such a device...no to my surprise they hadnt....so i sat down and days later emerged with a patentable "device for the prevention of ladder slip".....and i did indeed gain a first year patent for it......but there in lies the problem, in order to keep the patent you have to invest...and the second year was some £400 investment plus more each year to get a full patent.....so i gave up, kids come first.......and a few years after i noticed it for sale.....thats life...i dont understand why all ladders do not have it built in and the standoff built in at the top ...so easy to do ....maybe someone knows of such a ladder...

    An ankalad works great on wet slippery surfaces.
