Ladders on skateboards

How many of you have one of these? Raise your hands . . . now, take them to the dumpster. You can't add casters to a ladder. I know, it makes moving that ladder a lot easier to put it on wheels. It also makes it a lot deadlier. Why do you think that ladder manufacturers DON'T sell ladders like this? Because they can't sell an obliously dangerous product.

When you modify a ladder (i.e. cut it, drill holes in it, or otherwise change it) you have absolved the manufacturer of any liability for any accidents that happen after that. It's not just about lawyers, lawsuits, and insurnace -- its about doing the right thing.
Loose the casters.
