Art,

Thanks. I liked the idea of them holding a ladder in place with a bundle of shingles.

It's a Roofing video, but it has some good tips. Like keep your ladder away from wires.

I use metal steaks to hold my ladder to the ground. Great safety tips

 A crow bar works well for this. I have a small one I have used for years. Drive it in at an angle opposite of the ladder and let the hook go over the rung.

It's good to have a safety refresher now and then to help keep safety on our minds.

I too use stakes to secure. Usually on the inside and tie back BUT you need to make sure you know what's underground, don't want to go thru a irrigation pipe or drain pipe. Also go in at a 45 degree ish angles rope does not slip off. When working near electrical wires I have the guys tie back the tops so the ladder cannot slide into it.
Also when putting the ladder on an angled side of a roof there is a roof "triangle" that you can get at any good paint Store "recc." Sherwin williams, that will level off the pitch to make it safer.

The pivot is a great tool. My first one grew legs so I had to get another. It is also great for steps when you need to put the ladder there. We added Quick Connect Ladder Levelers to all the ladder and have only two levelers and base units on all ladders. I chose do do it that way because we seldom have more than two ladders out at the same time.

we have been using ladder base mate for the last four years or so and find them the best ladder stabilising device we have used. There are two types one can be put on and taken off as you want and the other is bolted on, this model is far cheaper than the one that can be put on and taken off. Just type in ladder basemate into you tube and you can see for yourself how they work.
