Bummer! Maybe Lowes carries them? You also might try stores specific to builders.

I haven't checked my local Lowe's yet, but I was just in there recently looking for re-bar and stakes and didn't see anything like that. I'll look again though.

Saw them today at Home Depot. I didn't buy any because I had more running around to do, and they're 10 feet long! I have to run them out my back window when I get something that long. I have a Sport Trac.
Maybe I could have curved them into the bed of the truck? Heck. I didn't think of that. duh

Well, no one around here has ever heard of Masonry Ladder and even the Home Depot that is 80 miles away has never heard of it. But, hubby bought me something that I'm going to cut in two and wire together...I'll post later!

The suggestion to cross them over each other gave me the idea to try using to keep our netting elevated over our larger pond we built this past fall. I'm so excited to try it! We used PVC Pipes for the smaller pond but the rebar might be less visible and less work.

Eeek! It's NOT REBAR! That stuff is very, very heavy. They are NEXT to the rebar.

Love it!


I've been trying to figure out how to make some Rose of Sharon 'climb' up the brick on the side of my house, and this is PERFECT! I'll affix them to the side of the house with masonary screws, then loosely tie the rose of Sharon branches to the sides of the frame. By next spring, this will ROCK!!

Thanks so much!
