Hands Free Painting


Toward the end of my painting and renovation career a once non-existent phobia (or irrational respect) of ladders was something I faced regularly. I actually noticed it and an accompanying discomfort with stairs started with the need for continuous bi-focal lenses which makes it difficult to see sequential steps in focus. Of course in the old days I never looked for steps---just had faith they were there. The perils of aging I guess.

It does amaze me how little DIYers seem willing to pay for a safe ladder. They are expensive but a ladder is not the place to skimp IMO.

Looking back, I also realized this skill of mine diminished with age too. It was nice to have both hands free for painting and other on-ladder tasks.

A solid ladder is a great investment for everyone. Even a Sumo wrestler.
