SafeStow Ladder Loader

The perfect tool for transporting ladder systems on the roof of your vehicle.

The SafeStow4 provides you with safe, secure and effortless ladder storage and handling. It totally eliminates the need to climb onto the roof of the vehicle or stretch in order to store and secure ladders. Instead, they mount and dismount with minimal effort all from the safety of ground level, thanks to gas ram assisted lifting.

Available in four versions:

  • Single
  • Double
  • Extra-wide
  • Special-purpose (Designed specifically for fibre glass ladders)

Important: All SafeStow4 systems require a minimum of 3 roof bars or roof rack cross tubes for correct installation and to ensure a long service life.

Loading and Unloading Assistance

With the SafeStow4, ladders can be mounted and dismounted with minimal effort all from the safety of ground level, thanks to adjustable gas rams – offering five different positions to accommodate various ladder weights to fully optimise the assisted lifting and lowering performance based on your vehicle

Belt straps & storage

The SafeStow4’s BeltStow system utilises two straps to pull the ladder in place tightly to minimise any movement while in transit or while deploying ladders. The innovative BeltStow system also ensures that both straps can be stored when a ladder is not being held – preventing them moving freely and noisily during transit.

Two cross bars with rubber inlay

The SafeStow4 comes with 2 cross bars with rubber inlay to cushion and protect the ladder, minimising any risk of abrasive damage. The introduction of rubber inlays ensure that your ladder doesn’t come into contact with the aluminium of the SafeStow4 at any point, to prevent damage occurring.

Free SafeClamp

Our industry leading ladder clamp is included as standard, securing the ladder downwards while the SafeStow4’s straps pull it in opposite lateral directions. Two SafeClamps are provided for double SafeStow4 systems.

Single Ladder SafeStow4

Our standard SafeStow4 is designed for handling and transporting of a single ladder. It can be positioned to either the right or left hand side a vehicle’s roof. Any SafeStow4 model can easily be upgraded to one of the other variants simply by purchasing the relevant fitting kit

Double Ladder SafeStow4

Our double SafeStow4 is designed to accommodate the loading and unloading of two regular ladders. It features the same main rail but longer cross bars to support both ladders. Two sets of beltstow straps and two SafeClamps are included to keep both of the ladders firmly in place during transit.

Extra-Wide Ladder SafeStow4

We aim to make sure the SafeStow4 accommodates all common ladder types, we therefore offer a version that is tailored to extra-wide ladders. The SK23 must be positioned centrally on the roof of your van and include two longer length cross bars to support the ladder.

Double CAT Ladder SafeStow

In order to accommodate the wheels of a CAT ladder, we offer a special kit that comes with five spacer blocks to raise one of the two cross bars supplied at the front of the system. The double CAT ladder SafeStow4 comes with longer cross bars which support two ladders, allowing a regular and CAT ladder to be transported at once.
