Ladder Safety Tips and Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can you use LadderMate between 2nd & 3rd rungs (to bridge over porches,
conservatories, etc) on level ground?
Q. Can you use it on soft ground (Or surfaces other than concrete/tarmac)?
A. Yes. Because LadderMate works on mathematical principles, the surface is not relevant. It does not
rely on friction for its effect. After erecting the ladder on soft ground, put weight on the bottom rung
to dig it in before installing LadderMate.
