The L6212 Fiberglass 12ft Leaning Ladder is ideal for the professional. With a duty rating of 300lb, it features the LEANSAFE® ladder top that secures tools and accessories, and is uniquely designed to securely lean against flat wall surfaces, wall corners, poles, and wall studs and perform as a standard stepladder. LEANSAFE® ladders have a lower rear rail to front rail connection point allowing the user to get closer to the work when in stepladder mode. Leaning a ladder safely requires that the rear rail is latched to the front rail. Werner’s patent pending single latch design stays engaged when needed, and is centrally located to easily open and close.
