Features of the new 3-Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder 

The tripod ladder that you know and love has had a redesign. Now better than ever, you can stay safe when working at height thanks to our Henchman 3-Leg Fully Adjustable Tripod Ladder. Suitable for both soft and uneven ground, carry out your garden and DIY tasks in a wobble-free manner, whether that’s indoors or outdoors, come rain or shine. The tripod’s legs can be individually adjusted and its claw-like feet have a solid grip into the ground, providing complete stability while you’re pruning trees and hedges, getting creative with topiary or simply cleaning windows.

Please note that if you’re planning to use your tripod ladder every day, then our Fully Adjustable Tripod Ladder PRO is what you need.

A fully adjustable tripod ladder with extendable legs

Whether you’re pruning a rose bush or trimming your hedges, you want to keep everything looking neat and tidy. This has never been easier now that we’ve upgraded our tripod ladder. All three legs on our tripod ladder can be adjusted individually so you can work safely on almost any surface.

Each leg can be extended by at least 18 inches/45cm and can be placed easily in any position, allowing you to adjust for inclining or declining ground to keep your ladder level, so you can safely reach those awkward branches with ease. Henchman Tripod Ladders can cope with level changes up to 80% more than other ladders you’ll find on the market, allowing you to get close and personal with your work and ensure there’s not a single leaf out of place.

Our Fully Adjustable Tripod is next level in terms of your safety. The legs are secured by our NEW patent pending hedge-proof locking pin. To adjust the legs, simply twist and release the handle, then pull to unlock the pin. Release the handle and it will click back into place, twist the handle back into its close position, and your ladder legs are locked and ready to support you as your work.

Generous space with our comfortable platform

Our innovative platform gives you enough space to work on safely and comfortably. With a size of 7”/ 18cm, your feet are placed firmly on the platform and your knees are tucked into the frame, with your body leaning against the hip height guard rail so that you can work hands free in a stable position. A wobble-free experience, guaranteed.

Our NEW 3-leg adjustable tripod ladder comes with an increased guardrail height for another layer of stability, providing more freedom to move about and work hands-free.

The ONLY fully adjustable tripod ladder certified to UK safety standards

The UK and EU have strict standards called EN131, which cover a range of requirements set by industry experts to help you choose a ladder that’s proven to be safe. The standards require annual testing by an independent testing house for the ladder’s stability, grip, dimensions, safety labelling and the safe working load of 150kg – 50% more than some competitors.

When it comes to EN131 standards, you may see phrases like ‘conforms’, ‘tested’ or ‘built to’ EN131. However, these terms can suggest that the ladder is not fully tested – it could have the right dimensions but the working load may not have been safety tested, for example. Our 3-adjustable leg ladder meets the full specification, meaning you can be confident that your Henchman ladder will keep you safe.

If unsure about the quality of a ladder, the EN131 certificate should be available to the public, and can be shown to you when asked. Find out more about EN131 ladder standards.

 Selecting the right size 3 Adjustable Leg Tripod Platform Ladder

It’s important to know the height of which you’ll be working at before ordering your tripod ladder. For example, if you’re going to use your ladder for hedge cutting, then first measure the hedge, so you know what you need.

Note that, when we talk about ladder sizes, we’re referring to the bottom of the ladder to the top when fully extended.

The platform rung on our 3 legged ladder is 3ft / 0.9cm from the top. This means that, when standing on the platform, the top of the ladder is level with your waist. For example, on a 6ft / 1.8m ladder, your waist is 6ft / 1.8m from the ground.

We recommend working between shoulder and waist height. As your shoulders are usually around 2ft/60cm higher than your waist, this gives you a working height range of 6-8ft/1.8-2.4m, from shoulder to waist.

If you’re going to be working between 6-8ft, our 6.8/1.8m ladder will do the job perfectly.

Our 3 adjustable leg tripod range starts at 6ft, with our largest ladder being 16ft. With this ladder, you’re standing 13ft from the ground

Product Specifications

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.

Size Guide

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 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.
