Rated 5 out of 5 by from It took 51 years... Thank you I clean my gutters every few years even with gutters guards. Each time I get terrified cleaning my gutters. I saw a YouTube video and went to home Depot to buy this Werner stabilizer. 10,000 difference on the ladder. Now I can dance, text, do selfies, and have clean underwear from almost 30'. Sadly did not know this product existed. A godsend product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't recommend Fits my Werner MT-17 ladder, but not well. Quality of the components is good, however I'm not impressed at all with the design. Unit strikes me as a quick, poorly thought out after thought rather than something that was thought of ahead of time. Fastening method is crude at best consisting of a couple of U clamps and some wingnuts. When installing, it bends two support braces in the ladder before it comes in contact with the main vertical rails. Unit does help to stabilize the ladder, but because of the poor design I'm leery about using it. Doesn't instill much, if any, confidence. In my opinion, Werner needs to redesign and re-engineer so that it becomes more of an integral part of the ladder when attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Safety Device.... To begin, I'm 74, have emphysema and use oxygen; if that's not enough, I'm just getting back into shape and in the swim of things after several years of recovering from a severe set back. All of the above is probably more information than you need but it's just by way of letting you know how much this stabilizer device means to me as I go about cleaning over 65 feet of gutters and installing gutter screens. Until a couple of months ago, I was doing so without your "literal lifesaver"...; Thanks!!! Much Regard, Duncan

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not to be used on Werner fiberglass ladders??? I purchased this unit for my Werner extension ladder. The narrow angle clips only work if installed opposite to what the directions call for. No where on the box does it say only for aluminum ladders or do not use on fiberglass ladders. I am still using it with the current installation and it seems to be okay. A tip from an old timer, put a little finger nail polish on the threads of the u bolt, this will keep nuts from backing off and break away easy when it's time to remove it. .

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 reach 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.

Performance system
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.
