  • Here are your instructions.

Before Usage

  • Before you start using our Ladder Safety Devices & Equipment, there are a few steps to take to ensure optimal usage of the device:
  • Observe all legislative requirements, your company procedures and regular ladder safety procedures. There are best practice guidelines for climbing ladders (link).
  • Check for loose screws and bolts, as well as cracks in the product’s plastic parts. If the product appears damaged in any way, don’t use it. Contact us for an exchange or a refund instead.
  • Open the spring-loaded handle with both hands. Using only one hand can cause it to release in a dangerous and uncontrolled fashion.
  • Don’t use our ladder safety devices on a gutter if you’re unsure of the gutter’s structural integrity. It should not be used on PVC gutters.

Step One: Position the Ladder

  • Place the ladder against the gutter, leaving enough clearance between the rungs to attach the Ladder Grip. Follow the ladder usage guidelines.

Step Two: Preparation

  • Raise the adjustment knob, making sure the bar assembly is close to fully raised. Once the equipment has been clamped to the gutter, the bar is the part attached to the ladder rail. Use TWO HANDS to open the handle BEFORE you climb the ladder. This part is important in order to maintain control of the grip.
  • Push the safety lock forward with your thumb. At the same time, pull the trigger to release the handle. Then clip the device to your belt before you begin to climb up the ladder. This enables you to maintain three points on the ladder at all times, which is the best practice for ladder use.

Step Three: Clamping the Ladder to the Gutter

  • With the handle in the open position, place the device’s jaws over the gutter and the bar over the ladder rail. Make sure our equipment is placed firmly up against the ladder rail. If at all possible, ensure that the adjustable jaw is placed snugly against the bottom of the gutter lip. This stops the device from twisting and turning about while you use it.
  • To lock the device, push the handle down with the palm of your hand. There’s no need to depress the handle trigger assembly while you close the handle.
  • As soon as the handle works its way into place in the body of the product, you should hear an audible clicking noise.
  • In order to check that the handle is properly locked in the closed position, pull lightly on the handle without pushing down on the trigger.

Step Four: Adjusting for Ladder dimensions

  • Use the adjustment knob to place the bar assembly onto the ladder rail. Slide the bar firmly against the side of the ladder rail by spreading the spring-loaded locking tabs.
  • Once adjusted for a ladder you are set and this won’t have to be done again if you are using the same ladder. Some find it useful to adjust the bar prior to climbing the ladder Voila! Your Lock Jaw Ladder Grip is now ready to use.
