drywall stilts prove to be quite useful for construction workers who need to get up to high ceilings for texturing, interior designing, taping or mudding apart from drywalling. These are also used for insulating the walls to save on energy bills. However, before looking for the drywall stilts for sale it is imperative to understand certain things about them. These stilts are not to be used for elevating the height of the workers if they are already standing on scaffolding. These stilts should always be used on level and firm surfaces for the safety of the worker.

It should be noted that while walking with stilts one must only take short steps and avoid going backwards as much as possible. Whether it is for insulating or drywalling, one must be careful while working with stilts. Those who are aware of the risks usually take a broad U turn when they have to go back instead of walking backwards with the stilts. Moreover, these should be inspected each time before you strap them on. It is especially important to take note of the load limit that these stilts can take and it is important not to exceed that mark.

When you are purchasing them for cheaper rates, you must inspect the bolts and weight limits. They have to be strapped cautiously too, first strapping the legs and then the feet with the adjustable straps that are provided with these stilts. The bolts should not only be in a good condition but should also be secured tightly to prevent injuries especially to the knees. Those who use stilts commonly also need to avoid going up on stairs or bending down to pick something as these actions could prove to be highly risky.
