Ladder Tips

By: Joe Truini

Danny and Joe share some ways to keep tools and hardware handy while you’re working on a ladder without losing them every time you move it. Tips include:

  • Mount an empty tuna can on top of the ladder to hold for small nuts, bolts, and screws. A small magnet dropped in the can ensures that the hardware stays put even if the ladder is tilted.
  • A plastic drinking cup mounted to the side of the ladder is perfect for holding hand tools like pliers and wrenches.
