Using the Model B Ladder Platform
Once the ladder is in a raised position, climb the ladder and lift the platform to the desired height. While holding the side rail with one hand, place the lower hooks on the selected rung and lock it in place with the latch. Next, level the seat parallel to the ground and snap the upper hook assembly into the appropriate rung.
When working from a seated position, this is usually the third or fourth rung from the top of the ladder. To assume the seated position simply grasp the side rails of the ladder above the platform with both hands. Place the body weight on one foot and turn the body slowly until the body weight can be placed on the platform in a sitting position with the craft person facing the cable.
For a standing position, this is usually the sixth rung from the top of the ladder. To assume this position, grasp the side rails of the ladder above the platform with both hands.
Place one knee on the platform, then the other and rise to a standing position on the platform. Carefully transfer the hands to the suspension strand and turn the body to assume a working position.
NOTE: When working from the platform, it is highly recommended that you use a body belt and safety strap.
