Do you trust your ladder’s feet not to slip — especially on slick surfaces like sealed concrete? To make using ladders in these situations safer, Rojak Design manufactures their ladder Stopper to provide a much larger non-slip footprint than the tiny rubber tread on the ladder’s feet.
To make the Stopper, they bond an either a 18″, 24″, 30″, or 36″ T-section of aluminum to vulcanized rubber. The large base increases the gripping power and the upright section braces both of the ladder’s feet from sliding.
I found the the 18″ version for 33 Euros ($50) before shipping and taxes and the 24″ version for 96 Euros ($143) with VAT and normal shipping. I’m all for ladder safety, but this seems pretty expensive for a frickin’ piece of aluminum bonded to a piece of rubber. Both sites I found are in the UK and there don’t seem to be any distributors in the U.S. for the ladder Stopper or even for other similar products.
