    Default Help with boarding ladder please

    20190714_201927.jpg

    Hi does anyone know where I could get a spare one of these things for my boarding ladder- sorry don't even know the name of what it is. It's the plastic part of the boarding ladder that attaches to the frame and then sits against the boat- a support I suppose.
    One is broken and I wanted to get a replacement but don't know what the thing is even called. Help would be appreciated
    Thanks

    It's probably called a boarding ladder foot. The chances of buying that piece alone are slim I'd say. Best start saving for a new ladder, ask at local chandlers or get someone to make one on a lathe or possibly 3D printing.

    What about a walking stick 'foot'. They seem to come in various shapes and sizes but normally black.

    Things like this just need a bit of ingenuity and imagination, then get/make two so they match. Take a walk around your local diy. Things that spring to mind are the ends of the poles they use for shower poles or suchlike.

    Google walking stick ferrules. I got some in white for my boarding ladder and very cheap.

    How about these from Force4:- https://www.force4.co.uk/force-4-lad...adder%20stand&

    Or same things from eBay , but cheaper https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132669954105

    Otherwise do Google searches for Boarding ladder stand-offs, boarding ladder stand-off feet etc

    Or as suggested above a walking stick ferrule

    I had exactly the same problem, and used as suggested above a walking stick foot, works perfectly and is now on itís second season, at about £1.00 in local DIY an absolute bargain.

    They're known as tilt 'n glide feet. Horrible name, but that's not my fault. You just need to measure the thread size.
