Default Pivit ladder tool...accessories

Just picked up another Pivit for $10 on CL. Didn't really need another one right now, but couldn't pass it up. Just curious if anoyone has used the work platform that goes with it...wondering how much use we would get out of it. Also curious about the roof boots.

I would use roof brackets before I would use the boots.

Have used both. They have their uses if you dont mind lugging the Pivits around. Otherwise I use levelors on the ladders. On some of the older houses I have had to use both, mainly because most of my ladders have the levelors, but the stair treads arent as deep.

At 10 bucks a pop, I'd buy them all day long. Sold a pair for $60 @ last year.
