Ladders
« on: November 28, 2017, 02:40:24 PM »
I see ladders attached to RV ladders while traveling.  What type of straps are used to secure them?

Often they use a metal hook it is a long metal rod that is bent in such a way that "Hooks" go over the runs of the RV-Ladder, and then a U' Shaped "Tray" is formed   Let me see if I can find it. Used for Chairs too.

https://www.ebay.com/i/112139526476?chn=ps&dispctrl=1

IT is sold to hold chairs, but it holds the UPPER END of a ladder as well. then Bunge cords at the bottom and I add a bicycle lock for security.

I do mine a bit different. but that is because the FACTORY ladder.. Did not survive

I use the rack linked to hold something else.

Metal hooks to support the weight and bungy cords to keep them from flopping around.

Metal hooks and a ratchet strap for me. But then, I'm carrying a 16' extension ladder, not just a step ladder.

I have the telescoping type 12 foot ladder. Drops down to about 18"x28"x5" package. I tuck it behind the pedestal chair just inside the door.

I have three "gravity" chairs riding on a hook on the ladder some times. Held down with bungee cords.

Im sure that somewhere in that stacker you could find a kitchen sink... or at least a hand wash station. ;) Might take a bit of looking, but it should be there somewhere! :D

I am and have been called a "Rotorhead".

I also carry a bucket of prop wash.

I'm always in need of a few feet of flight line.
