I always avoided ladders as much as I could but wish I had one of these when I was cleaning looks much safer!

Nice pics...:thumbsup:

 

I must admit I struggled for a long time feeling unsafe using ladders until I started using an ankalad.

The spin off I've found is that ppl will comment on how professional you approach the job in hand as are always impressed with my kit if you know what I mean :D

My ladder was still in the packaging and I was already thinking of cutting them off. Is it a combination ladder? The instructions seemed to suggest it was, and I figured that was what the straps were for, but I don't think I'll use that option anyway.

A combi 12 rung triple has different brackets on the top of the first section which have angles on them not straight end. At the top of the second section it will have 4 locating pins on it. Also has an extra ali arm attached to one side of the stile that swings out when wanting to set it as an A frame ladder. If you cut the straps off a combi then best you don't try using it as an A frame ladder unless maybe you can use ratchet straps instead for the correct ladder splay.

 

To be honest those straps are a pain in the arse and I think it's a poor design as you would have thought they would have separate straps that could be quickly attached when required instead of getting in the way all the time.
