    Best way to stabilize a wobbly ladder?

    We just purchased an Intex 18'X48" inflatable ring pool. The A frame ladder it came with is terribly unstable. I am going to order a mat to go inside the pool to protect the liner. What is the best way to keep the ladder from moving?

    I set mine on some paving stones, drilled holes thru the pavers, and anchored the legs to them using zip ties.

    I don't have a picture with the zip ties installed, but this will give you the idea.

    I don't have the type of pool you have, I have the 22x52 Intex ultra frame but anyways you could try some stakes over the bottom legs of the ladder maybe 2 on each leg in the front would hold it down and make it easier.

    put stakes in the ground connect ratchet straps to stakes and the top of ladder on both sides and tighten, but not to tight.
