When clipping in the garden at height, it is vital to keep safe and that requires the correct tools for the job. Our preferred ladders are the Niwaki tripods, as the name suggests, a three legged ladder.
The three legs and wide base provide excellent stability even on steps and slopes. The wide feet provide good traction on soft surfaces, and the rubber feet (an optional extra) give traction on hard surfaces. It is almost impossible to topple one of these! They are well built and come in a variety of heights from 4ft all the way to 15ft. The EN Pro models in particular are very study.
