The Ladder-Head-Safety-System or LeiKoSi in short, is used to secure leaning ladders, sliding and cable ladders as well as corresponding multi-purpose laddersthat can be used in the leaning position. The application is very simple and unique in its handling. The LeiKoSi is designed in a way, that it can be mounted from the ground to the ladder before the ladder is raised and that just with a few simple steps.
