I just got a new ladder. We have holes in the cement deck with aluminum ladder cups. When we installed the new ladder, it didn't feel like it was seating properly. So I felt something loose in the cup and pulled out this metal thing that has a hole in it for what I am assuming is the bolt that goes in the deck.
Can someone please help me identify that this is what it is.
Also, the ladder has quite a bit of wobble and I can't find the bolts for the cups. Do these bolts secure the ladder? I don't see how they could though.
I got a Saftron plastic ladder and I know they sell the plastic cups for them. I wonder if I were to insert a plastic cup into the aluminum cup, if that would secure the ladder better but not sure it would fit right.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
