Yeah, my concern is weight as my ladder is the 7' one and is a little hefty.[/QUOTE]

I know the posts themselves are plenty strong. If attached from underneath like most on here, i think they'd be fine. I really like mine, but it is being held by 2 #10 screws per end. Vibration could make it interesting if the small holes i fastened thru waller out. :O
Time will tell. I always have a drill or two in the truck and a roll of plumbers strap if needed.

A larger screw with a fender washer would capture more material to hold with no major problem. A couple of holes drilled at or near the center of the post might be used to insert two more screws to provide a little more security. I just do not know how much there is in the center of those rigs. BTW, I have an extra 7' ladder, still wrapped in plastic I will sell for 135.00. Perfect condition, never used. Pick it up in Palm Coast, FL
