Falling off off ladders is one of the biggest accidents that can happen while hanging Christmas lights. Ladder stabilizers can help prevent these accidents, and actually serve a few purposes. The main purpose is its name sake: stabilizer. They help prevent the ladder from moving around. The next thing that it helps with is preventing damage to your home. Stabilizers prevent the ladder from applying pressure that can mess up your gutters and shingles. They’re usually pretty inexpensive and can save you a trip to the emergency room.
