Safety Stance. The Sumo Stance extension ladder by Little Giant has two adjustable-length legs that slide out to triple the width of the ladder's footprint. This widened stance makes the ladder much less likely to tip than other ladders, says the maker. And when it's time to load the ladder on the truck rack, the legs fold in flat to make handling easier. The type IA 300-pound capacity ladders come in 16-, 20-, 24-, 28-, and 32-foot lengths and cost $299 to $599. Little Giant, 800/453-1192.
