Ladder clamps best way round?

Recommended Posts

Was just wondering what you guys think is the right way to face your clamps when putting your ladder on your van?

:confused: I have the open part of the hook facing forwards. Wouldn't think it matters would it?

 

Top Tuffers tip: put a blob of paint on one of your padlocks and key, so that you know which key and padlock fit each other straight away. Saves about 5 seconds :D

The bar should go across the stiles not clamped down on the rungs if that what you meant.:rolleyes:

They're the long bits on your ladder. Also known as strings.

The main two box section of the ladder which the rungs fit into;)

That seem rather odd as if fitted correctly and clamped down level they should not move

 

Mine kept popping off on Friday!!

Funny that as I've heard they can pop off and are really easy to unlock. At least with decent normal ladder clamps you can put a nice chunky padlock on them which also stops them unwinding/moving whilst travelling at high speeds and/or in strong winds.

I was considering the rhinos as they look much faster to use than the threaded ones, but reading this I'm not sure now. Are the problems isolated and are there other rhino users who have had no problems?

i've been using em for 2 years without a problem. 2 seconds to put on or off. also lockable.

Ladder clamps don't seem that slow to me. I bought a second pair this month so I don't need to wind the handles too far tor the thick or thin ladders.

My mate bought a set and he had to keep checking them as the ones he had use to work loose. Hence why I did not bother to get any as the last thing I want is to be driving along and the ladders fall off the van.
