If you’ve ever juggled tools or a paintbrush while perched high above the ground on an extension ladder, then you may love a nifty new invention: The ladderlimb. It’s a tapered pole that inserts into the holes of rungs on a standard aluminum extension ladder.
It’s got a clip to hold a paint can or bucket. Using it with a tool bag holds extra appeal, because there’s nothing quite as fun as climbing up to a job and climbing back down again after realizing you need another tool. Available at ladderlimbusa.com for $19.99, plus $8.95 flat rate shipping. Enter coupon code “observer” for 50 percent off.
We’re going to give a ladderlimb to one lucky reader. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why it should be you. Include name and address. Deadline Tuesday.
