    Mentioned these on another thread & got great feedback so thought they should have their own thread as anything that improves ladder safety has got to be worthwhile :)
    Ladder Mat - best price £16.95 online & order came through fine was Sterck Systems via Amazon (more expensive on their own website!) see http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B0055R1F3Y/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new
    Ladder Pads - bought from this eBay seller as cheapest at £13.99 for this brand only just ordered - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221632852564?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    I've also ordered a set womble it's a bit late for me though, (horse stable door) I was installing a gas boiler in a garage and using a pair of steps extended at a very poor angle, they slipped and I fell backwards what seemed in slow motion. I had time to think that I didn't want to crack my head on the concrete floor and put my arm behind me to save myself, this was in 2000. Now 2015 and 5 operations later on both shoulders and elbow and my shoulders are now wrecked, one of reasons I took early retirement 18 months ago. I couldn't claim anything for injuries as I was self employed at time.

    John.

    Harleyjohn - sorry to hear about your accident but glad you are still here to tell the tale! Hope you don't have any ongoing pain or discomfort. On a positive note though being retired means more time for Fun & rallies :)

    Just received the Ladder Pads which look very substantial & best price that I could find online at £13.99 & prompt delivery from the eBay seller. Just need Midlands Ladders to come back with their Funster discount now so I can order some shiny new ladders to put them on & try!
