Mt. Everest Safety Products, Inc. (MESP) has added the Ladder Lock—a ladder-securing device—to its safety product offerings. The Ladder Lock is a patented, portable ladder safety device that meets OSHA standards for hands-free climbing and securing a ladder. It is designed to help prevent extension ladder slide-offs, blow-offs, and accidents.
The Ladder Lock was developed by MESP because of a void in the market for an easy to use, strong, portable ladder securing device. The result is a device that allows a user to secure a ladder in a matter of seconds to many surfaces including gutters, fascia board, drip edge, 2x framing, 2” tubing, metal wall cap, metal roofing, railings, and plywood. Another feature of this product is its ability to protect gutters from being crushed by a ladder.
John Ferris, president of MESP and inventor of the Ladder Lock, has worked in the roofing industry for over 20 years and knows the importance of ladder safety. He says, “Over the years, I’ve seen dozens of ladder accidents that have resulted in bodily injury and property damage. I developed the Ladder Lock to fill a void in the ladder safety product market. It is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to help prevent dangerous and costly ladder accidents.”
