    My Ladder Is Driving Me Crazy!!!

    What do you guys do to make your ladder not sound like a 300-passenger jet coming in for a landing while you're driving down the highway? There's got to be a better way than Great Stuff.... I can't even talk on the phone while I am driving over 30!!

    is trying to stand it up by myself, it does not always do what I want.

    Take plastic bags you get your parts in from SH's and stick in the holes.Then silcone them(the plastic bags gives the silcone something to stick to while it dries)and no more noise.I only have the first 4 rungs done.They are the only ones over the cab.

    I agree

    get something in them holes. I put media filter in mine. Its light, cheap, and easy to remove if needed for whatever reason.
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    i filled mine with spray foam probably 15 yrs ago and spray painted over the foam to protect it.

    pretty sure that thing caused some hearing loss at a certain range......

    I have a Shu-Bee shoe cover stuffed in mine, works great and it matches the ladder.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    I dont have to worry with it anymore. I just replaced my old extension ladder. I bought the Werner Heavy duty 24' ladder(the yellow one). It doesnt have the holes in the sides. And it only cost about $90 more than the Orange one wit the holes.

    No. I crammed a big piece in to make sure of that.

    Its only illegal if you get caught. It aint gonna change nothin. The drivers around here are still gonna be morons. Taking their precious phone from there ear wont help.

    Instead they will be trying to work the earpiece at 90mph. Taking it off their ear to figure it out, putting it back, still aint workin, take it back off............
