product review, ladder-max


Ladder-Max Standoff Stabilizer

i just used this for the first time today. well worth the money. quality product
very easy on & off. it does add weight to the top, so getting the ladder up takes more effort. "setting" the ladder is different, but no more effort than without it. and the ladder does not retract past this unit

what else is there to say
i am so happy with it i just had to tell someone

Glad you like it.
I've been using this type for 10 years and it also works great and takes about 10 sec. to remove and install.

Re photo#1: If you are accessing the roof (off ladder onto roof), the ladder should be extended more and the unit installed lower. You should have 3 feet above the roof.

I've got the same one as you Joe. I was using it to install numerous soffit vents and had to lean flat against the ladder, and the cotter pin used to hold the Werner in place kept stabbing me in the belly. My stomach was sore the next day. While it works fine, the design of that locking pin could be better.

I have the Werner version. Just bought it this year to install some gutters. Why didn't someone tell me to buy it 20 years ago???? It makes working on the ladder SO much easier.
