Extra Product Detail

Henchman’s 1 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder is ideal for working at height on slightly sloping and flat ground, both indoors and outdoors.

The unique tripod design can be safely placed on any flat or slightly sloping ground. The rear leg can be adjusted by 6 inches (15cm) to lean forward and backwards, allowing for slight slopes in the direction that the ladder is facing. As long as all three feet are in contact with the ground, your ladder won’t wobble. 

The 1 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder also features a 7 inch / 18cm deep platform rung designed to make standing more comfortable while you work. When standing on the platform, you can tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability, allowing you to use both hands safely as you work.

The platform sits at the top 3ft / 0.9m of the ladder’s full height - no matter what size your ladder is. For example, if you have the 8ft / 2.4m ladder, the platform sits at 5ft / 1.5m high. This means when you’re standing on the platform, you’re standing 5ft / 1.5m above the ground.

When standing on the platform, the remaining 3ft / 0.9m of the ladder’s length is designed specifically to give your legs room to tuck into the frame. This provides you with more stability while working. This unique design also prevents you from bashing your shins on the rung above whilst working.

Note: If the ground you’re working on is very uneven, or you require a ladder with more adjustability, the 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Platform Ladder or the Adjustable Platform Step Ladder will better suit your needs.

Always be cautious of falling debris when using any ladder as impact may destabilise and/or damage the ladder.

What size do I need?

All sizes provided are with the extendable leg fully retracted.

To avoid ordering the wrong sized ladder, it’s important you know exactly how high you need to reach before you order.

For example, if you’re using your ladder to trim hedges, we suggest picking one that’s more or less the same height as that hedge. Measuring the hedge height before you order will ensure you choose the right size. 

Heights are based on a 6ft / 1.8m person, and will vary depending on user and tools.

Working Height
(Based on the user being 6ft / 180cm)
Ladder Size Platform Height Hip Level Reaching Overhead
6ft / 1.8m 3ft / 0.9m 6ft / 1.8m 10ft / 3.0m
8ft / 2.4m 5ft / 1.5m 8ft / 2.4m 12ft / 3.6m
10ft / 3m 7ft / 2.1m 10ft / 3m 14ft / 4.2m
12ft / 3.6m 9ft / 2.7m 12ft / 3.6m 16ft / 4.8m


How our ladder sizing works

The height of our ladders is the total height from the very bottom to the very top of the ladder with the leg fully retracted. This 8ft / 2.4m ladder measures 8ft / 2.4m tall.

The 1 adjustable leg tripod ladder’s platform sits 3ft / 0.9cm from the top of the ladder. When standing on this, the top of your ladder will be in line with your waist. That means, this 8ft / 2.4m ladder, your waist will also be at 8ft / 2.4m. 

Your shoulders will be approximately 2ft/60cm higher than your waist. We always recommend working between your waist and shoulder height. This will give you a working height range of 8-10ft / 2.4-3.0m, waist to shoulder level. 

So, if you need to reach between 8-10ft / 2.4-3.0m, our 8ft / 2.4m will suit your needs perfectly.
