Ralston CanSafe has introduced the Ralston stabilizer for hollow-rung ladders. Designed to reduce accidents resulting from slipping ladders, the stabilizer installs in under 10 minutes and does not negate the CSA rating of the ladder. It deploys in seconds, even on sloping ground, eliminates the need for a spotter and maintains its integrity, even when a large weight is suspended from either side. During testing, the stabilizer has enabled the ladder to withstand tethered drop-loads of over 2,273 kg (5,000 lb). The legs fold and lock to the side of the ladder for easy transportation and storage.
