well keep poking that sleeping Grizzley and sooner or later it will wake up and do harm to you. Sooner or later we will see on Youtube some idiot with a redneck made extention on his later as it fails. Never ever modify a ladder! Ever!

Need a taller ladder


This thread was awesome.

I had to send the pic of the contraption to my wife. Only cuz our ladder is just about that much shy of reaching our 2nd story gutters and we've joked about creative ways to get up there.

Regarding the oven / heating... we have a plastic fan with two spinners, and you can set one blowing in and one blowing out. I think that would be perfect.

I'd put a bolt through the holes with two big washers plus lock washers. If you bolt in a plate from one hole to the other it will probably be stronger than before. But you don't need it stronger and it's possible it's now forever weaker so I still don't think it was worth the risk.

Having read some of your other threads, you don't take advice from anyone, especially those that are concerned about your safety.

puttster:
I was among the group that expressed the opinion that you would be better off not making alterations to your ladder but:
1. I am very glad you did not get hurt using your modified ladder.
2. I doubt that anyone on this site wishes that you did get hurt.
3. I am sorry that you were given that impression.
Good luck.

Ahh, man.

Sounds like I need to do some searching; it appears there is a lot more entertaining reading to be had.

Just wanted to add something to this post. The picture is far away but look close and you can see the professional tree trimmers at work.

The second extension ladder is supported In the crotch of the tree, seemingly ~25-30' above ground.
