    Put two rachets on this lot but a four inch fence post is something I wouldn't want coming forward. Any advice ? 15620783419723597467818938245990.jpg 15620784014615898386653502768448.jpg

    seeing as it's a fence post screwing something to the end isn't really an issue.
    Then you can use that to secure against forward motion under braking.

    Wrap the straps once round the post and tighten. Friction will stop it moving.

    I would have the post on top of the ladder so pressure is exerted over the entire load.
