Neat little gadget. I wonder when someone here in the USA will decide to make an extreme sport out of racing to the top of a tree on one of those.
A larger version might be a good tool for linemen. Say one large enough to carry 2 men and a pair of cross arms plus tools.
Never mind we already have bucket trucks for that LOL
"Well you can jump off a roof
Pretend you can fly
Maybe you'll bounce
Maybe you'll die
Maybe you'll splat
And flap until that"
excerpt from "Waffle Stomp" Joe Walsh
"Have doughnuts and coffee
With Colonel Khadafi
Write a new novel
That's perfectly awful
Buy some new work boots
Stomp on a waffle or two"

I made some similar devices to hold a scaffold plank on the side of pipes and wood columns for the boat houses I used to make. Never thought of attching them to my shoes though.
