I am looking for a company that makes and sells Ladderpods, need to be good quality.

Anyone knows such a company or are they all made locally by grips?

Once again - no affiliations with either companies - just humped their gear (warning! Very Heavy to deal with).

Think of a tripod with each leg made of the step-side of a ladder.

There is a pic of it in their print catalog which I believe you can get for free at their website.
