Why Ladder Grips Are The Best New Ladder Safety Accessories

The Ladder Grips are manufactured from welded 2.5mm steel with a powder coating and non-ferrous fittings to maximize strength and durability. The special natural rubber ladder pads are fixed to the steel and provide the grip necessary to keep the ladder stable.
One of the unique features of Ladder Grips is in the approach Bobby has taken to improve ladder stability by upto 350%. Most ladder safety devices concentrate on trying to fix the ladder feet whereas Ladder Grips aim to fix the top of the ladder. If the top is made immobile the feet are unlikely to move. To illustrate this Bobby prepared a demonstration to illustrate how the friction between the rubber pads and the working surface secure the ladder. Although you must always secure your ladder feet, and NOT replicate Bobby’s demonstration, he put his ladder feet on a castor-board that was free to move on the concrete ground surface. Climbing up the ladder and even bouncing on the ladder did not make the ladder slip, demonstrating the success of the concept that ladder stability can be improved by fixing the top of the ladder.
