Master carpenter turned inventor and entrepreneur, Andrew Parsons, announced the launch of Ladder-Lock.
The ladder conversion kit is designed to increase the safety of its users by improving an extension ladder's overall stability.
Compatible with most 16 to 24-foot extension ladder models with hollow rungs, its patented technology significantly decreases the users' chances of serious injury and even death.
Created for everyone from professionals to DIY home renovators, the Ladder-Lock features two adjustable legs that connect at the ladder midpoint and two adjustable arms that anchor to the ladder's lowest rung, creating four points of contact that eliminate the kicking out, sliding and tipping, and supports more weight than a ladder alone
Aluminum rods are inserted through the hollow rungs of both sets of legs and braces generating an ultra-sturdy base capable of bearing loads over 450lbs.
“Everyone from painters, contractors, and roofers to people who put their Christmas lights up once a year will benefit from the Ladder Lock,” said Andrew Parsons, founder of Ladder-Lock. “Throughout my career I have witnessed several people fall off ladders, including myself. Ladder Lock users will feel a new level of assurance and as a result get their jobs done more efficiently.”
