Stilts aren’t just for circus performers — they’re a staple in any plasterer’s arsenal. My plaster guy walks around on and recommends Marshalltown’s Skywalker 2.0 stilts. Their advanced ankle movement allows for a more natural walking motion and less fatigue.
They fit on any size leg, thanks to a three-way ratchet system. You can quickly adjust the height, up to 30″, with a “flip-and-switch” system. You can also strap ’em on fast with quick “adjust-and-release” straps. The stilts support up to 225 lbs. with rubber feet pads for traction. If you get a chance to try a pair out, I recommend it — it’s not as easy as it looks.
