Grippa ladder


Recommended Posts

Does anyone use that grippa ladder tool that goes on the bottom of your ladder & it acts as if someone is footing the ladder. it fits on the first 2 rungs of your ladder & then you pull out like a leg that stops it sliding at whatever angle. They are in the wcw catolouge.

hi ya guys:) get your self a point laddder you can use them on a 1in 10 slope down the side of a house, made for window cleaners used by window cleaners, as long as you do not over reach they are as safe as any ladder to use.........pete

i agree about the point ladder, but there are still plenty of windows that will need footing in some way, i havent used a grippa, iv seen them but there not needed that often and i think it would just get in the way/get on my nerves.

i have however used a person/wall/fence post/my car/trees etc

I see what yer saying but these are for them awkward angles where the sloping roof is to sloped to climb on or sticks out to much so ladder has to be at a awkward angle

the thing is with a point is that because you can get higher and go off say halfway up the window frame, you can take out alot more of the awkward angles, but there will always be some windows where footing is essential

I have fitted a pair of these to my ladder and my confidence has grown a lot since I've been using them.

The only place I need to secure more firmly though is at the head when cleaning fascias ...any suggestions in this area ? I have tried a few methods but not found the best remedy as yet.
