Loft ladder clip
by AlexF1980, published
My father in-law has a loft ladder with a catch that stops the ladder retracting after you've climbed up it, which has been broken for some time. I decided to see if it was possible to make an all-in-one replacement on my REPRAP PRUSA. This is the result.
After printing, you will need to trim the supports at the end of the slider and then trim around the 4 sides of it using a thin blade. I bought a hobby/craft set from my local Homebase (DIY Store) that contains a set of scalpel blades of varying shapes and used a ~5mm wide square-ended blade with the blade on the tip to trim the slider free.
I will add a picture of one I made and trimmed when I get home later.
