The only thing more dangerous than setting up a ladder on uneven ground is propping up one of the legs with a few blocks of wood (you've done it, admit it). The Werner Equalizer Ladder puts an end to this job-site Evel Knievel act by making it possible to adjust the length of each ladder leg independently so that both sit on solid ground. The legs lock in at increments of 3/8 inch and have a total adjustment span of up to 8-1/4 inches. In practical terms, this means the ladder can be set up perpendicular to a set of steps. The lowest rung has a bubble level to verify safe setup. The ladder comes in aluminum and fiberglass in heights from16 to 28 feet.
