Gotcha. I kinda thought you were asking if it was cheap or dinky.

BTW, I made a typo in my post, I meant to say that you can buy it at HD.

As zac mentioned, you need the ladder with the provisions for accepting that bucket. I forget the name, but many of the Werner ladders have it. You may have to order one online, Amazon is a great source, I've had a few shipped from Amazon.

I really like the 5' ladder for resi work, it's much easier to get thru doorways and carry up stairs without hitting things than a 6' ladder, and it's nicer to work off of than a 4 footer. Especially with 9' ceilings or when you need to climb up into an attic hole.

I tried to find it up here in Canuckistan. Home Creepo switched to Featherlite. Blowes doesn't have it. I did a search and found a nice bucket truck, though .

That will work too. Even one of those square milk crates would be good. Maybe use beam clamps to attach it to the ladder without making holes in it (structural integrity and all).

Just do it the old fashioned way. Screw a 4 X4 box to the top of the ladder and screw a loop of romex on the side for your drill. Two dollar fix (five in Canada).

no . varies.

I own an 18' . 12' , 8' two or three 6' and two 4'
one little giant , and two full sections of Bakers
scaffolding with wheels and 4 stabilizing attachments
for when you stack them for real high heights
(these are all A frames) I also have several
extension ladders.

This is why I'm not interested in yet another ladder

Tew way my foot . leg & ankle is still re developing
nerves etc . less I go up & down ladders daily , the
better off I am at the end of the day.

Ladder rungs are killing my foot

A milk crate? That's a lot of box offsets, even for you .

I don't rather try it on before buying it but this vest looks like it's at least suited to electrical work:

https://www.amazon.com/Visibility-Ve.../dp/B00DTVMDJS

A plain vest like this



with pockets sturdy enough to put this tool pouch in



would probably work fine.

I've never bought a specific 'tool' vest but I have used a Carhartt vest for years when the weather gets cool out.

And have carried tools in the pockets on the outside and the inside pocket as well with no rips tears or disappointments.

I was looking for something like this, but agreed they all seem to big and bulky. Ended up going with a fairly compact MOLLE chest panel and a couple zippered pockets +radio holster.

Don't think it would work for installation, not enough pockets, but I think it will be good for carrying walk-around tools for maintenance work. There are larger MOLLE chest rigs, it's a nice but expensive way to be able to customize pockets.

If you get that vest you should get some jean shorts like this so you still have as much mobility as possible.

Default What about a No Mess Charley™ Up the Ladder Safety Apron?

Here's a new Kiwi invention about to be launched soon in the US that takes all the hassles out of working up a ladder that lets you be hands-free, lets you still wear with your tool belt and also carries your material and catches your mess.

Google "No Mess Charley" and give us some feedback on what you think?

HD sells garbage bags that you can do the same thing with, a big ass pouch in front of you.

BTW... Like the fact you got a hefty dude to do the video, very American looking!

First off you should send a free one to @99cents (OP) for evaluation.

Still if you know somebody who knows somebody it might be specked on a job. An idea that might evolve.
