No, it’s not a throwback to one of those old westerns. The Hangman is a tool caddy that attaches to a ladder. And there is more than a noose that holds it in place. The aluminum tool holder locks to the inside of any commercial size ladder rung, holds any standard size paint can, has an arm that pivots for easy access, a rubber coated hook that protect tools from scratches, and holds up to 35 pounds of equipment. For $109 a backer gets a complete product with an expected delivery of May 2014.
