Hi, if the ladder was not installed by the manufacturer, there is probably no accomidation for the ladder to be installed. Knowing this we in the shop use 'awning plates' at the location of each leg for reinforcment and backing. use silicone to bond the plate, and screws to attatch, this gives the foot a larger footprint, and more bearing on the wall, this is done as common practice, and in 40years, I have never seen this proceedure fail... go to this link for the product I am referring to. click here
