Useful ladder accessories include equipment hooks, paint buckets, tool trays, leg stabilizers and standoffs. Locking brackets, ladder pads, guards and leg levelers are also helpful.
Equipment hooks allow the user to hang a variety of items from the ladder, including buckets and tools. Ladder pads fit over the upper feet of a straight ladder, preventing damage to the adjacent wall or object. Locking brackets secure folding ladders in the closed position, preventing use and stabilizing them during storage.
Leg levelers are useful accessories for ladders placed on uneven surfaces. Some brands also have ice picks, which reduce the risk of slippage in freezing conditions.
