Research findings funded by CPWR (NIOSH) at the University of Michigan shows how important it is to hold the ladder rungs and never the side rails:
LADDER RUNG CONTINUATION GRIPS BEYOND HATCH OPENING
HatchGrip provides ladder rung type grips on the exterior of a roof hatch to ensure a firm, stable grip when you exit and enter a roof hatch.
The loss of balance while stooping over the edge of the roof hatch while trying to continue to climb the ladder places a person in an unbalanced position, the possibility of falling backwards is real, relevant and could result in injury or fatality.
Simply mount HatchGrip to your roof hatch curb and you have given anyone climbing the ladder an extension of the ladder rungs with which to comfortably exit or enter the roof hatch.
