These provide a better footing for the chickens. I didn't rate this full full stars because the instructions were to remove the tape grips to allow for full clip on. These do clip on over the tape grips (same as what you get on the skateboard deck) but it'll be a pain in the ass to take off. And if you leave the tape grips on these plastic grips don't clip fully and can come loose easily with a gentle knock.. Would have preferred to know this upfront. But whatevs
The Omlet ladder grips are a third bigger than original steps.
Our chickens could easy climb the steps within 2 days. The original steps were slippery for them and were hard for them. This helped a lot.
The extra wide steps have made a big difference as our four chickens have found it easier to grip the stairs and they now appear to be more stable when using them.
