Add another leg to your ladder and you have the Hasegawa Tripod Ladder. This line of aluminum tripod ladders originated in Japan before spreading to Europe and now the United States.

Clawed feet, a flat top, and deep steps make it ideal for gardening enthusiasts and tree surgeons alike.

The ladder’s wide base, combined with the telescopic back leg, transfers the user’s weight downward, creating more stability. Clawed feet, a flat top, and deep steps make it ideal for gardening enthusiasts and tree surgeons alike.

Users can adjust the back leg to use the ladder on uneven terrain or slopes. The ladder is available in two models: the original GSC model and the GSU model that includes a platform step. The GSC model is available in sizes from six to 12 feet, and the GSU can be purchased in sizes ranging from four feet to nine feet.

Hasegawa Trading has been selling ladders since 1956 and started producing in 1968. Retailers in the U.S. can purchase the tripod ladder through Niwaki, a reseller website.
