Introduction: Manoeuvrable Ladder

Picture of Manoeuvrable Ladder

 I was so impressed by Iceng's excellent Magic Rolling Steps Instructable, that I immediately thought I'd improve on the idea by adding castors.  This is the prototype, but castors could also be used on a full-size extending ladder to allow you to easily manoeuvre it close to the wall to get the ideal 15 degree angle.  The safe angle for a ladder is to position it one foot away from the wall for every four feet of ladder's height before you climb it.  Safety first, chindogu.

No, Chindogu. A Japanese word for things which at first sight appear to solve a problem but actually create other problems.  Have a look at the other entries in the contest.

Ha Ha imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Levitation as my grandson can do will be a real asset here :-)

This one made me laugh - very nice!

I predict much pain for the person who uses this. Am I the only one who thinks this is a terrible idea? even with locking castors you couldn't pay me to step on that thing.

It's a terrible idea and that's the point! ;)
