  • Extension ladder safety, Made me look

    While driving to a job yesterday with my jetter in tow on a major street, I saw a sign installer literally standing straight up on an extension ladder with his coworker bracing the ladder so it won't flip backwards. I thought to myself, they're either really experianced or really stupid.

    So on the way back an hour later, they were still working and still hanging the last piece of the sign. Pulled over to take a picture and share with the forum.

    Ladders scare me, but this was beyond scarry. They have balls of steel.

    Rick.

    It looks like that mass of steel between their legs is offset by the near perfect vacuum between their ears!

      That can't be! Cirque Du Soleil is in S.F. RIGHT NOW, AND WE HAVE TICKETS ! We met the performers many Years ago on a tour at Ft. Baker, SF . We saw their jackets and they saw My Pixar Jacket, Been friends ever since. 2 Years ago they did a trapeze performance in the high atrium ceiling at Pixar

            Golden - hopefully it's only their name and not the color of the star on their safety manual.

                  I doubt they will ever learn.

                        Is that even an extension ladder? I don't see the the overlapping sections in the picture.

                          Probably one half of a extension ladder.
