Heavy Duty Mount for OUR dock ladders
There are installations where mounting
the footman loops may present a problem
or in commercial applications where you
want a stronger mount.
Our optional heavy duty dock ladder
mounting bracket can be used instead of
footman loops. Galvanized steel with
heavy steel welded pins will
provide years of use. Camps, commercial
docks, etc. will benefit from the
stronger mounting bracket. Low profile
with rounded design,
helps prevent damage to bare feet. In
some applications, it’s easier to mount
the heavy duty bracket than footman
loops, where you can’t reach
beneath to tighten nuts on bolts. The
heavy duty mount is ideal for aluminum
docks to help spread the load.

|These types of
fixed frame ladders were the
original pontoon ladders. In
some cases, the old way is still
the best. Mounted on the front
deck of a pontoon, this type of
ladder is generally the easiest
ladder for bigger people to
climb. The young woman to the
right could climb any of our
pontoon ladders but the strength
of this ladder makes it safe for
all swimmers. Another benefit is
if you have only occasional
swimmers, this ladder can do
double duty on a dock.
Double 1” top bar support.
Handles the stress of the
5” deep x 16” wide embossed non-skid surface.

or Pontoon Ladder Storage on
The traditional dock or pontoon
ladder can take up a lot of
space when not in use. Stored
out on the front deck is a good
place. But a big wave can send
your pontoon ladder into the
water. Our optional storage
clips allow you to secure your
ladder almost anywhere.
Plastic clips bolt to the rail.
They hold your ladder securely
up out of the way.

you need to know about Dock and Pontoon
|Generally speaking, you
will want at least 24” of ladder in the
water to make it easy for the swimmer to
climb a pontoon or dock ladder.
Smaller-younger swimmers require less
ladder in the water than larger-older
DOCK - Consider the
depth of your dock off the top of the
lake. Most docks are generally about 18”
off the lake.
PONTOONS - Consider the
size of your pontoons and the rise of
the tubes. Tubes vary from 19” to 25”.
Children and Adults -
Children can climb out of the water on a
ladder that's barely in the water.
Adults, especially older adults with
reduced upper body strength, sometimes
need more dock or pontoon ladder in the
water. Although, I saw an elderly woman
climb out of 6’ of water in a swimming
pool almost effortlessly. The ladder
only had 2 steps (about 24”) in the
water. A deeper ladder might have been a
bit easier but she had no difficulty
with only 24”.
Shallow Water -
Buying a longer dock ladder that you
need doesn’t usually present a problem.
But, in shallow water, too long a dock
ladder might hit bottom.
