    Ladder clamps and I also padlock the clamps to the ladder when not in use on the roof rack of the van.

    Might get myself a couple of sets of these as looks a bit easier to use.

    I got some of that timber you use for fencing etc. Tannelised? I then made a purpose roof rack. I fixed bungy rope with hooks for clamping between jobs. If you want a pic I'll do one.
