The Buckingham Ladder Lock System is a combination of a ladder stabilizing strap and a redi-access storage bag that is attached to the ladder. The bottom stabilizing strap is used on poles; it can also be used on trees, to aid in stabilizing the bottom of an extension ladder to prevent kick-out and excessive rocking. The redi-access storage bag for the strap is designed to be attached between the two lower rungs, first and second rungs from the bottom, on the base section of the extension ladder.
Components of the Ladder Lock System
• The strap is constructed of yellow fabric webbing 1 inch wide with a slip-through cam buckle, a snap-hook and D- ring on each end of the strap. The snap hooks and D-rings are used to secure the ends of the strap around each side rail of the ladder and the cam buckle is used to tighten and secure the strap in place.
• The redi-access storage bag is made of yellow water resistant material with a Velcro® opening. The two upper corner straps each have a plastic friction buckle and the two bottom corner straps have quick connect buckles.
The quick connect buckles are there to enable the bag to be moved so the strap can be removed more easily. When the extension ladder is against the pole at the proper climbing angle, the bag too is also at an angle. By disconnecting the quick connect buckles, the bag will fall to a more vertical angle making it easier to remove the stabilizing strap from inside. This is not a necessity, just a convenience if preferred.
NOTE: This product cannot thoroughly secure the ladder unless the top of the ladder, depending on the circumstance, is also secured. The strap is not intended to compensate for poor or uneven footing or an improper climbing angle.
