What makes a Tripod Ladder safer than a normal ladder?
Three is the magic number! Provided you can get your Tripod Ladder to stand up, it is impossible for all three feet not to be in firm contact with the ground, no matter how uneven your garden is. And because of the wide triangular footprint that the splayed legs create you are almost certain to remain within it and therefore prevent wobbling.
The ideal replacement for the traditional stepladder for all indoor and outdoor projects at height on uneven, sloping ground, steps or hills – with each leg adjustable by up to 18” / 45cm this Henchman Tripod Ladder makes almost any surface safe and easy to work on. The 7” / 18cm platform rung makes standing on the ladder comfortable while you work. You can then tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability due to the recessed rungs above the platform, as a result, you can use both hands safely for your work while maintaining 5 points of contact with the ladder at all times (Both feet, both knees and your waist). Only having 3 legs ensures that each foot is always in contact with the ground and prevents the See-saw effect found often with 4 legged step ladders. This means that the ladder will not wobble and coupled with the high-quality lightweight aluminium framework you get an incredibly stable and rigid yet super lightweight ladder.
*All ladder heights shown are the total ladder height with the legs fully retracted, with all ladders the platform height is

What size do you need?
All sizes provided are with the extendable legs fully retracted.
To avoid ordering the wrong sized ladder, it’s important you know exactly how high you need to reach before you order.
For example, if you’re using your ladder to trim hedges, we suggest picking one that’s more or less the same height as that hedge. Measuring the hedge height before you order will ensure you choose the right size.
