Our Latest Innovation!

The Lacket A-Stand Attachment uses the strength of the Lacket to turn an extension ladder into an A-frame ladder


What is The Lacket?

The Lacket is the innovative ladder safety product that stops an extension ladder from slipping sideways or falling backwards vertically.

The Lacket’s patented, award-winning design uses a unique wedging effect to lock an extension ladder firmly into position, and through extensive testing has proven to withstand even the most extreme conditions.

The Lacket is the only adjustable ladder safety product that enables you to secure an extension ladder before even setting foot on the ladder.

Before you step on a ladder, Lock it Safe with Lacket.


Unique Design

The Lacket is based on a simple patented design that uses a wedging force to secure a ladder from sliding horizontally or falling backwards vertically. 

Unparalleled User Safety

The Lacket firmly secures an extension ladder without the user first needing to step foot on the ladder. The ladder is completely secured before the user ascends. The Lacket complements fibreglass ladders to ensure safe working around electricity.

Tried and Tested

The Lacket has undergone rigorous testing, and has proven to remain secure even when the ladder has been subject to the most extreme sideways and backwards forces.

Universal Fit and Usability

The Lacket is a ladder attachment that is fully adjustable to fit any of the most commonly used ladder makes and models that meet Australian safety standards. It secures a ladder using any overhang, without removing roof tiles or drilling into the building fascia.

Quick and Convenient

The Lacket can remain attached to your ladder, whether or not it is being used, so you don’t need to repeatedly install and uninstall. The Lacket folds conveniently away within the ladder rungs when the ladder is being stored or transported.

Approved By Those In The Know

Lacket Accessories

Lacket Stabiliser Bar

The Lacket Stabiliser Bar has been designed to add versatility to the Lacket. The unique wedging effect of the Lacket relies on an overhang to firmly secure your ladder into a rock-solid position. But what if an overhang isn’t available?

The addition of the Stabiliser Bar to the Lacket allows your ladder to firmly and safely rest against a flat wall. Alternatively, the Stabiliser Bar can hook over to rest on a roof.

Lacket A-Stand Attachment

The A-Stand Attachment is our latest innovation, designed in conjunction with Australian energy suppliers to allow an extension ladder to be converted into an A-frame ladder.

How does The Lacket work?

The Lacket uses a wedging effect to secure an extension ladder to any building or structure that has an overhang. Have you ever tried to jam a door closed by wedging a chair underneath the door handle? That gives you a rough idea of how the wedging effect is used to lock the ladder into position. When combined with the provided safety straps to tie off the base of the ladder, the ladder is wedged or jammed into position and cannot be moved.

What materials is The Lacket made of?

The Lacket is made from a combination of Stainless Steel, T-6061 alloy and high density impact resistant plastic. Plastics are also UV rated to withstand constant UV rays without compromising the structural integrity of The Lacket. It’s built to last wherever you store and use your ladder.

These materials have been specifically chosen for their strength, weight and ability to resist rust and corrosion.

Has The Lacket been tested?

The Lacket has undergone rigorous testing by independent engineers to prove that it can withstand the most extreme forces – forces that would never normally be exerted on a ladder. We always recommend that the strictest ladder safety be adhered to, even with The Lacket in place to secure your ladder.

Is The Lacket approved by Australian safety governing bodies?

If you use The Lacket in conjunction with the provided cam-buckle tie down straps, you will fulfill the requirements for securing the top and bottom of an extension ladder as required by Australian safety governing bodies.

Will The Lacket fit on my ladder?

The Lacket is fully adjustable, and will fit on any of the most commonly used ladder makes and models that meet Australian safety standards.

Do I have to secure the bottom of my ladder when using The Lacket?

SafeWork NSW recommends that you secure the top or the bottom of the ladder (or both).

We at The Lacket Company recommend that you never work alone on a ladder. However we understand that this is not always possible, so here are some alternate solutions for securing the base of the ladder whilst using the Lacket to secure the top.  And remember, good ladder safety means you should always use a ladder on a level, immovable surface.

  1. Place a weighted object (such as a 20kg sandbag, bag of concrete etc) at the base of the ladder.
  2. Stabilise the feet of the ladder through the use of a ladder feet stabiliser or ladder leveller etc.
  3. Tie off to a ground peg. We have supplied two 4m cam-buckle straps so the operator can secure the base of the ladder.
  4. Tie off to weighted object (greater than 20kgs), using the supplied 4m cam-buckle straps. The weighted object could be a bag of cement, a bag of sand etc.
  5. Tie off to any fixed structure.

The Lacket Story

We’re an Australian owned and run company that wants every ladder user to have a safe experience when working at heights.

The Lacket Company was formed in 2015, when two mates (a Paramedic and an Engineer) discovered that there were no simple, practical ways to secure an extension ladder in order to prevent the ladder from slipping or falling.

As they witnessed an increase in the number of hospitalisations due to falls from ladders, the developers wanted to look at the problem from another perspective. After researching products currently available in the market, they quickly realised that all the options were impractical, dangerous and didn’t actually secure the ladder to a stable structure. The biggest problem they found was the need to secure the ladder prior to climbing it, as many of the currently available options require the operator to climb an unsecured ladder in order to secure it.

After almost three years of research, design, development and testing, what evolved was the most innovative ladder safety attachment that met the shortcomings of anything else on the market. Because this safety attachment caused the ladder to be as stable as though it was bolted to the building with a bracket, it was named The Lacket.

We hope that you get to experience the confidence that The Lacket will give you as you climb your extension ladder.

The Lacket Company is proudly based in the Illawarra, and intends to remain a local business for many years to come.
