The problem

These ladders may not comply with the mandatory ladder safety standard and could be unstable.

The ladder could move while standing on it in the fully open A-frame position without the bracket, which could contribute to falls.


The ladders (models ML-AL17 and ML-A719 in silver and black) were sold between 22 November 2012 and 16 August 2013.

What to do

  • Do not use your ladder.

  • Contact Harco for a free bracket kit to be couriered to you.
