i new it would come in handy some time just cleared the gutter
Stand offs are brilliant, almost essential, for gutter/fascia cleans. Makes the job so much easier and more comfortable. safer too.
A mircolite standoff is the best for roofline work but if setting the ladder on an angle like that is still very dodgy as the ladder could slip backwards.
i stamped the feet in the grass so it wouldent slip i should have put the foot the ladder on realy but i felt it was safe anouth i would have pefered a microlite standoff rather than a standerd one tho as the roof tiles would b safer but its a very handy bit of kit ive used it 5 or 6 times now an its ace bit of kit
Pity you did not try to put it on as I would have been intereting to find out if a foot the ladder would have worked on that angle as looks like it only adjusts a small amount.
yeh i really really must get a standoff.....squashing the gutter makes it very hard to get the cr. ap out....
now if you had seen the angle that the windys had the ladder at yesterday to do a job near me...well someone was footing it and i was dying to take a photo but he knew i was watching....
Something like this maybe?... old vid but still very funny
here is a nother pix of the standoff in action
To be honest I binned my old standoff similar to that as found it down right dangerous to rest it on fascias like that.
This makes the job so much easier & safer to do
