Hi Guy's

Well, after a lot of thought I bought a single pointer and have to say it's the best thing I have ever bought.  You feel so safe and it just making cleaning window so much easyer.  Now I want a double pointer, any ideas what length I should go for?

Cheers lads

Hi John
          If you are doing normal house height work i use a Double A frame 3.66 and that will do most jobs with ease. Wink

Why do u feel more safe  Huh Just wondered, im in the market for a new ladder soon.

I just feel safer, maybe because there is only three points of contact when you position it, it just stays there, also on uneven ground there is no movement or wobble, plus you get closer to the work,  by placing it in the corner of the window rather than above or under the sill or either side of the window so less streching.

I would not be without one now, but thought like you, how would I benefit from one.
