Ladder-Lock is a ladder conversion kit 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, Ladder-Lock “significantly decreases the user’s chances of serious injury,” according to its inventor, master carpenter Andrew Parsons.

The kit is meant for professionals as well as DIYers. It features two adjustable legs that connect at the ladder midpoint, and two adjustable arms that anchor to the ladder’s lowest rung. This creates four points of contact, eliminating kicking out, sliding, and tipping; it supports more weight than the ladder alone does. The user inserts aluminum rods through the hollow rungs of both sets of legs and braces, generating a base capable of bearing loads greater than 450 pounds.

Parsons, founder of Ladder-Lock, commented, “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.”

Ladder-Lock is available exclusively at Ladder-Lock's website.
