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!

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.

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.

Ladder-Aide: The perfect addition to every toolkit.

Our Method

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:

1.

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.

2.

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.

3.

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.

4.

Most importantly,
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.

I am a professional painter and paint many stairwells. In the past, I have had to build platforms for ladder work on stairs out of 2x4s and plywood, as ladder leg extensions do not extend far enough. I have used Ladder-Aide twice this month, and couldn’t be happier. I am impressed by the overall design, which was very well thought out, in particular the space saving storage mechanism. Well done!

This product is INCREDIBLE. We love the compact size when stored in the truck. We used to use the Pivot however it takes up too much room in the truck to always carry it and when needed it was usually in the shop. Ladder-Aide feels very stable and we put it through the paces on the round staircase.

A friend of ours had recommended using his Ladder-Aide when working on steps and we knew nothing about it. He came over and showed us how to insert the pins into the adjustable slots to find a level spot before putting a ladder on. Once the ladder was placed on I was surprised at how sturdy it was and how you can position yourself opposite to the steps. Having the Ladder Aide made our not so easy paint job a breeze and no need to rent a big extension ladder for 1 job!
