After making a recent post showing me on a ladder at a less than perfect angle, and after reading Padre’s post on his ladder incident I decided I would add another layer of safety to my ladder work.
I made this anti-kickback out of a scrap piece of 2×2, 4 8” spikes and a short length of rope. I don’t think I have to get into the details of construction . . . you can pretty much figure that out.
When I put the ladder in place I will put the AKD on an angle at the feet of the ladder and pound it into the ground with a hammer. The rope will enable me to pull it out of the ground. Here I have just tapped it with my foot so you can get the idea. If the ladder does decide to kickback this puppy should catch the feet so that I can come down safely.
I will let you know how it works.
