one cold October morn back in 2010 my ladder slipped out on me. It was a very frosty morning and i was tired because i had already done several days slog cleaning windows . Because i could see the ground was slippy i put a rubber laddermat under the feet of my ladder . At the time i believed these rubber safety mats were good at preventing slippage. How wrong i was! Anyhow i fell the full drop and nearly broke my legs as they slid between the open rungs of this ladder in the foto.
look at the foto you can see the bent rung ,this is where my shin bent it. was i lucky—ooooh yes- for some crazy reason i went on to finish the job in pain – i then had a week sitting at home while i recovered. Today ,Feb 2016 these same ladders are going to Cambridgeshire. a fellow there has bought them from me.
