Extra Product Detail

The ideal replacement for the traditional stepladder for all indoor and outdoor projects at height on uneven, sloping ground steps or hills - with three adjustable legs this Henchman makes almost any surface safe and easy to work on.

The 7”/ 18cm platform rung makes standing on the ladder comfortable while you work – your feet are firmly placed.

You can then tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability meaning you can use both hands safely as you work.

On every ladder you are the total height minus the 3ft / .9m of the platform above the ground and the upper part of the ladder is the platform with rungs to lean into not stand upon.

The 3 leg adjustable tripod platform ladder range starts at 6ft - with the largest at 16ft, meaning you are standing 13ft above the ground.

The tripod solution is easier to place safely in any position – when all three feet are in contact with the ground and the rungs are level your ladder will not wobble.

All three legs adjust to allow you to work on most surfaces, if you are planning to use your 3 leg adjustable tripod every day or for work you should consider the more robust Professional 3 leg adjustable tripod platorm ladder which has thicker rungs and increased weight capacity of 150kg or if your hedges/ roses/ wysteria is longer and you'd like a solution where you can get more done in each step the Hi Step Platform might be more suitable option for you. 

See technical information for further specification data, such as storage dimensions.

What size ladder do I need?

All sizes provided are with the extendable legs 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.

Working Height
(Based on the user being 6ft / 1.8m)
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
14ft / 4.2m 11ft / 3.3m 14ft / 4.2m 18ft / 5.4m
16ft / 4.8m 13ft / 3.9m 16ft / 4.8m 20ft / 6.0m

 

How our sizing works

The height of our ladders is the total height from the very bottom to the very top of the ladder with the legs fully retracted. For example, our 6ft / 1.8m ladder measures exactly 6ft / 1.8m tall.

The 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, if you have a 6ft / 1.8m ladder, your waist will also be at 6ft / 1.8m. 

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 6-8ft / 1.8-2.4m, waist to shoulder level. 

So, if you need to reach between 6-8ft / 1.8-2.4m, our 6ft / 1.8m will suit your needs perfectly.

Heights available: From 6ft / 1.8m to 16ft / 4.8m

Standing platform depth: 7in / 18cm

Approximate working height (waist level): Same as the total height of the ladder

Approximate working height (shoulder level): 2ft / 0.6m above the ladder’s height

Maximum standing height: 3ft / 0.9m below the ladder’s height

Weight: From 8kg to 23kg

Storage dimensions: The full storage length is the total length of the ladder. The storage width ranges between 0.8m / 2.6ft on the 6ft tripod, to 1.8m / 6ft on the 16ft tripod. Can be stored securely outside.

Storage depth:  0.2m on all tripod ladders

Weight limit: 150kg

An introduction to the Henchman Tripod Ladder

FAQs about our ladders

It’s simple, really. Our 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladders provide wobble-free stability because all three feet always remain in contact with the ground.

By adjusting each leg individually to counteract uneven ground, the 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder allows you to ensure that the rungs are always level. All three legs adjust up to 18 inches (45cm) to allow you to safely work on all types of surfaces, including uneven and sloping terrain. The ladder’s claw-like feet grip soft ground to add extra stability, and stop the ladder from sinking.

The 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder’s standing platform provides a safe place for your feet while you work. You can tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability, allowing you to use both hands safely as you work.

If you’re planning to use the ladder in your garden, we always recommend the 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder.

That’s because in order to be safe, all ladders (including a Henchman ladder) need to be upright and level. Very few gardens are perfectly level. Most have a degree of unevenness, whether that’s steep slopes or gentle lumps and bumps. 

The Henchman 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder is designed to cope with almost all terrain, so it is very rare that you’ll find somewhere where you can’t safely use one.

On the other hand, tripod ladders with just 1 adjustable leg are designed to be used on flat ground, or facing up or down a single planed gentle slope. A tripod ladder with 1 adjustable leg will not work if you have a slope parallel to the area where you’re working. 

For example, if your garden faces up or down a hill, but your hedges run along the left or right hand sides of your garden, a one leg adjustable ladder won’t offer your stability. In this case, you’d need a three leg adjustable ladder.

Yes, you can use our 3 adjustable leg tripod ladder indoors. 

In fact, they work brilliantly indoors when purchased with our optional rubber feet. 

These feet improve grip on flat hard surfaces and also protect delicate floors from being scratched by the clawed feet.

If you’re planning to use your tripod ladder for professional purposes, such as landscape gardening or tree surgery, then we’d suggest our Professional 3-leg adjustable tripod platform ladder instead.

Although similar to our standard model, our professional model is made from thicker aluminium and is built to better withstand regular use and transit. This makes it far more resistant to frequent use over the years. Plus, for businesses claiming back on VAT, the extra cost of our professional tripod ladder can be easily recovered.

Both the tripod ladders and our platform step ladders are designed to be safe on uneven ground. Both have adjustable legs to counteract slopes, dips and steps, have a safe working load of 150kg, and are covered by our 5 year warranty. 

The added benefits of our tripod ladders include a lighter weight due to their fully aluminium frame, making them easier to transport and move around. They are also faster to set up due to their spring pin leg adjustment mechanism. 

However, the Adjustable Platform Ladder has a larger standing platform secured by a rear guard strap. It also has more height adjustment due to each leg extending to 2ft, plus an optional 3ft height extender on top of that. It also offers high levels of productivity, allowing you to increase your reach by leaning left and right on the waist high guard rail without risk of toppling.

It’s really important to pick the right size ladder. If you choose a ladder that’s too tall, you’ll spend your time working on the lower rungs rather than from the platform. If you choose a ladder that’s too short, you may be tempted to stretch up and over reach, causing imbalance and instability.

Please see the “What size ladder do I need?” section on this page for help choosing the right sized ladder. If you’re still unsure about what size to choose, please get in contact and we’ll be more than happy to help.

The rubber feet make your ladder easier to use inside and on hard surfaces.

Slide them onto the feet of the Tripod ladder and they will protect your floor from scratches and improve grip.

It’s important to always take the rubber feet off when working on soft ground or gravel, as the clawed aluminium feet are designed to dig into and grip the ground, preventing slipping or sinking.

Yes, if you order the wrong size, you’ll be able to exchange your ladder for a different size. However, there will be a £45 collection charge. 

For more information on exchanging the wrong size ladder, please see the “Delivery and returns” section on this page.
