I bought a used D1324-2, 24' extension ladder. I cannot figure out how to hook up the continuous looped rope to the fly section of the ladder. There is a clamp on the rope that appears to attach to the 3/8" rope, but I have not had any success. Please send me a illustration for the proper use of this rope system. Thank you.

I have a 2 story flat roof (row) house. house is 24' tall. how tall a ladder do i need to climb onto the roof? how much height is lost from full extension when ladder is leaned against house? if I lose 1 ft of height when ladder is leaned on house, I should still have 3ft of ladder from which to climb onto roof from. ladder needs to be as small as possible due to storage constraints. some say I need a 28ft. thats what I want. some say I must have a 32ft. I can't tell if theyre upselling me or its what I really need
thx

Answers

Answer: 
To reach 24 feet, it is recommended to have a 36 foot ladder, to account for the ladder overlap, the ladder angle, and to have three feet of ladder above your support point. Please see the chart in the link below for further ladder height information. The model you would want is D1336-2.

I am a painter that finishes many homes that are 30 feet tall. I weigh 220 pounds. The most I carry is a gallon of paint, a hammer, and sometimes I have my sprayer gun and hose hangs off of the ladder while I brush the paint on.
I did purchase the extension brace to balance the ladder.

Answers

Answer: 
When choosing the right extension ladder, it is important to know how high the user will be working and how high the support where the ladder will be placed. The angle of the ladder needs to be taken into consideration when choosing the correct ladder. For a ladder to be supported at 30 feet, it is recommended to use a 40 foot extension ladder. For more information, please visit the link to the ladder selections tips on our website.

Can foot be positioned 180 degrees from "spur position"

1 year, 5 months ago
Customer avatar

Age: 35-44
Gender: Male
It appears that your ladder feet can rotate 90 degrees forward or backward from the neutral position. Rotating 90 degrees towards the user achieves the "spur position", and rotating 90 degrees towards the wall would place the shoe holder in contact with the ground? Is there any use for this position? Does it allow the ladder to be used on sloped or non-level surfaces?

Answers

Answer: 
The ladder feet should only be used in the spur position, or the flat position where the slip resistant foot pad is on the ground. Having the ladder rest on the other end of the swivel foot does not provide a slip resistant foot.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
