A great product for tower owners-KF7P Safety Stand

Posted: November 20, 2014 in Uncategorized


Amateur radio is full of high tech and low tech. Every once in a while a great low tech item comes along that is a real time or money saver.

Last year at the Visalia International DX Convention, I purchased a Tower Safety Platform from Chris-KF7P. The safety stand is made of heavy duty galvanized steel and easily attaches to the top of the lowest section of my tower. The fit is precise and it is very firm and sturdy.

The benefit of the Safety Stand is that you can use a extension ladder and easily secure it within the safety stand. This enables you to ascend the ladder and easily transition to the safety stand without having to climb the tower.

This makes it easier to get on the tower and stay on the tower. The platform is large enough to allow you to work on your rotor, antennas or cables. It has a heavy duty tread design. This is a terrific product that has saved me time and money on its first use. I recently experienced a rotor issue that may have required a pro tower climber and potentially a crane, however I was easily able to ascend the tower and resolve the issue myself.

Chris is a great guy to deal with and I really enjoy his products!

    You don’t say, but is this for a crank-up tower? Otherwise, it doesn’t make much sense.

    Ed, that’s correct. This platform attaches to the top of the lowest section of a crank up or motorized tower.
