We work in a lot of residential homes and the stairs are not always at the same height in the stairways. The guys at Ideal Security have definitely come up with a genius idea and at an affordable price too!
How it Works
See how easy it is to use.
Ladder-Aide sets up quickly, and there’s nothing to install. Use the right ladder for the job, every time.
Watch this video to see just how easy it is to set up, adjust, and move from stair to stair.
Both Ladder-Aides are compact and portable. Neither requires permanent installation on your ladder.
Ladder-Aide sets up in seconds and is easy to move from stair to stair. Easily swap ladders to get the right one for the job.
With an anti-skid surface and micro-adjustable height (to within 1/8”), it creates a stable, level base for use on all stairways.
The original Ladder-Aide is smaller and lighter, and fits most aluminum ladders. The Ladder-Aide Pro is big enough to handle even the larger Type 1AA fiberglass ladders.
We developed the Ladder-Aide because we saw a need that wasn’t being filled. We kept seeing questions about creating stable platforms for ladders on stairs, how to safely paint high ceilings above staircases, and the the best ladders for use on stairs. We knew there were other products on the market already, but they weren’t good enough.
These questions were coming from professionals and amateurs alike, and the answers they got varied from terrible advice (“just prop the ladder up on paint cans or concrete blocks“) to extensive debates about the pros and cons of other (like the Pivit wedge, leg extenders, ladder levelers, and scaffolding).
It became clear to us professional painters and other contractors, home-owners, and maintenance teams needed a better way to access high walls above steps and stairwells, and we felt we could do it. We started by establishing some basic criteria:
Easy and quick
to set up.
Scaffolding works great but takes too much time and energy to set up.
It’s also expensive to buy or rent—especially if you’re just hanging a picture on changing a light bulb.
Doesn’t require permanent installation.
Ladder levelers and leg extenders make ladders heavier and annoying to carry around, and you need to buy one for every ladder.
Our solution had to work with whichever ladder was right for the job at hand.
Easy to move.
Nobody paints above a single stair, and every stair along a staircase is the same height.
We needed to build something that would let you do a whole staircase without having to take it apart and put it back together.
it must be safe.
Falls are one of the leading causes of injury and death, and ladder-related accidents account for nearly half of falls.
Our solution had to be sturdy, stable, and idiot-proof. We wanted it to inspire confidence and feel just like the ladder is sitting on solid ground.
