Why use tripod ladders ? – a Henchman tripod ladder review

Tripod ladders are used where ordinary ladders will not be safe. Like a milking stool, the tripod ladders have three legs to ensure their stability. With three legs, it is impossible for a tripod ladder not stay in contact with the ground.

Basic tripod ladders usually have one adjustable leg but the more professional ones have three adjustable legs. This makes them much more suited for uneven ground or for use on a sloping surface.

  • Unlike a normal ladder, Henchman tripod platform ladders have a special 7 inch (18cm) wide platform step to stand on. This step supports both feet leaving the remaining three feet above the step to lean on. There is room in the top part of the ladder to tuck your legs in so improving your stability.

The triangular footprint, which gives you much more stability than a standard ladder, is almost certain not to wobble. Having just three legs also allows for greater access in difficult areas which is why tripod ladders can be used for hedge trimming, pruning, topiary work as well as fruit picking.

They are often used by house painters and the shorter versions are ideal for maintenance in and around the house for little jobs like changing a light bulb.

far apart and claw feet to stop the tripod ladder from sinking into the ground or
slipping on the soil.
