Time Is Money Afterall - Ladder Clamps


Gazz

Recommended Posts

I currently use universal ladder clamps from screwfix and it takes so much time to load and unload my ladders from my car.

 

Here's some poor maths:

Out the car/van, then have to turn, then then and turn until you loosen up the tension. Pull one clamp off, then do the other & Repeat to get it back on.

 

Then you put your utility belt on/BOAB/OFF

 

2 min each time? That's 4mins per job. You do 15 houses per day that's 1 hour per day you spend messing about getting your ladder off.  

 

That's £20/£30 per day x 5 days a week is £100/£150 per week.

 

So I seen rhyno clamps for around £40 with free delivery. I know these would be a massive upgrade for me, but anyone got another solution?

 

Someone mentioned to me a modded seat belt. What do you use?

 

Edit: I won't be using a WFP or a trad pole. Just thought I'd state that lol.

I use clamps when travelling long distances, otherwise just a rope to tie them on, takes seconds. I used to wear my trad belt and wedge boab in door pocket, open door boab on untie and off I go, takes seconds.

I really need to find a way to wear my trad belt and I think I'd mostlikely just buy the rhyno clamps.

move pouches more to the side, leaves a gap at the back, not comfortable but better

I'm sort of a pack mule. I have everything on my trad belt. But taking it off all the time is frustrating. So I'll have to work around it.

So busy no time to undo ladders:1f602:

Life is too short to worry mate

When i was trad i ised rhino clamps and always wore trad belt

Unclip boab and leave in the back and wear the rest

I will be doing that. I'll have to get a moerman BOAB because my unger one is useless for my moerman gear. I use a unger Holster to hold my liquidator.

I used to, then I realised a lot of stuff wasn't being used, what I did was go through everything and try and work out when I last used it, if more then a week had passed it went into car, got rid of 50% of what I carried. If I needed it for a job I just pop back to car, or put it in for the job and then straight back into car. Make the day easier as less stuff weighing u down too

I like the moerman boab because the clip stays on your belt and you just need need to pop it in when you're jumping in and out. :1f44d:

That's the plan. I use moerman gear so I'd be able to get rid of my unger boab and unger Holster by getting the moerman boab.

You could try picking up the neighbours of your customers it will increase your profits and cut down on loading and unloading time

I know lol. It was worst case scenario. I'm at the stage where I'm making my round stronger and faster. So many new customers and first cleans.
