Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick Outstanding add-on; great for bi-level property
Today I purchased the 32' Werner aluminum extension ladder D1300 series, along with these leg levelers.
It took me about 20-25 minutes to install the brackets onto the ladder (you need a drill, metal drill bit size 11/32", tape measure, 1/2" socket, ratchet, marker, a center punch, 0-40ft/lb. torque wrench (optional) and some basic shop/mechanic know-how). Sequence of install is measure, mark, check measurements on marks, line up braces, if good to go...center punch middle of marks, then begin to drill, once holes are drilled glue (provided) spacers to braces and line up...then insert bolt, washers and lock nut and tighten. once hand tightened instructions recommend a 9 ft/lb. tighten.
Please pay attention to what type of ladder you have so as to match the application of this item to your respective ladder. It works on four different type of ladders...rung and plate, direct swage with bracing, direct swage w/o bracing "which is the D1300 model", and the telescoping multi-ladder. Applicability to your ladder can be found in the product description area.
After installing the braces, the fastening of the leg leveler is cakewalk. It literally takes 5 seconds to attach and extend and just as much time to take off. It is very sturdy. I extended my ladder to 25 feet on uneven ground and climbed to the top...no wobbling, shifting or any kind of weakness or instability indicated. Sturdy construction with heavy duty metal spring and metal geared teeth. Also has locking pin for added safety after the press lock engages. The step down lever makes it that much more easy to use... don't have to bend over to extend leg, just flip lever outward and step on it to extend leg...that easy! And to retract leg all you have to do is tap the top lever and it will retract. Simplistic and solid. A little pricey but definitely well worth it. Extends to about 8.5" more as advertised.
Pictures attached show about a 4" high step.

This seems expensive for what it is, but it does the job and can be used by one person, though it's easier with two. I'm 65 and dealing with a 24' ladder can be a struggle on my own. This leg leveler comes with two brackets and one leveler. You mount one bracket on each side of the ladder, and put the leveler on the side you want to be longer. Since I was drilling holes in my ladder to mount the brackets, I was very careful not to drill in the wrong place, and it probably took me between 1/2 and 1 hour. Once attached, you can control the leveler with your foot, and it's quicker and safer, in my opinion, than propping a leg up or grubbing away some dirt to level the ladder feet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RC Works great - except not on all stairs
The installation was straightforward and came with all the necessary hardware and glue. Operating the leveler is super easy and swapping the leg from the left to the right takes less than 10 seconds. The attachment is very sturdy and confidence inspiring, which is what you need from a product like this. The issue that I have is that rail that the leveler leg adds significant width to your ladder. I suppose this is a good thing in most cases as it should add stability. However, if you want to use the leveler on a staircase, the width might be too much to span across 1 step up. In my case, I had to remove the rail from the unused side so I could get the leg butted up against the top stair so there was enough width for the leveler leg to fit on the step below. Not ideal, but it worked. In all other situations, this leveler works great.

Easy installation. Works as advertised. Just wish it came with two legs like the factory ladders. Would save time switching the levelers.

I absolutely recommend this product. I used a 28' fiberglass ladder several times 5 days a week. This has made my job a lot safer and easier. Easy to install and use.

The leg extender was easy to install and makes a huge difference when working on uneven ground.
