    I find that ladder works much better with and ankalad fitted and deployed as stops the ladder slipping backwards, sideways at the top and stops ladder bounce too. Not only that if the ground had been slopping then you would have been knackered. So I found it easy to still work on slopping ground safely by using http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Anti-Slip...by_BabyFeedingUtensils_EH&hash=item19ea21d23f to make the ladder level first then deploy the ankalad so to make sure the ladder is not going to go anywhere.

    I use the combi version and the straps fell off on there own well of sorts. With a lot of help from weathering and me trapping them under the ladder whilst clamping them down on the van roof bars they soon broke :D

    Nice one :thumbsup:

    Those ladder mats in the link I gave you are one of the best bits of kit I have ever bought as when used in conjunction with the ankalad the ladder is as safe as houses on sloping ground too :)
