The Ladder-Aide was super helpful for my painting projects. It allowed us to access areas of the walls and ceilings that would otherwise be inaccessible with our conventional ladders. We were able to save time and money because of how much quicker our staircase jobs became. A must have in the contracting world.
Ladder-Aide is a compact and portable unit that doesn’t require permanent installation on your ladder.
Ladder-Aide sets up in seconds and is easy to move from stair to stair. With rugged construction and a heavy duty design, it supports type II and type III ladders.
With an anti-skid surface and micro-adjustable height (to within 1/8”), it creates a stable, level base for use on all stairways.
Designed for professionals and perfect for the every-day handyman, the Ladder-Aide is self-storing and weighs only 7.2 lbs.
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.

Concerned about safety?
So are we.
That’s why we designed the Ladder-Aide to handle OSHA and ANSI/ASC load standards for Type 2 ladders, and tested it using their guidelines.

We developed the Ladder-Aide because we saw a pain point that just wasn’t being filled. We kept seeing questions pop up online 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 for some reason, these products weren’t satisfying peoples’ needs.
These questions were coming from professionals and amateurs alike, and the answers they got varied from terrible advice to just prop the ladder up on paint cans or concrete blocks (Note: Don’t ever do that, it’s incredibly unsafe) to extensive debates about the pros and cons of tools like the Pivit wedge, leg extenders, ladder levelers, and scaffolding.
It became clear to us that there was a need in the market for a better way to access high walls above steps, 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 each 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.
