FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a work platform of the present invention.

FIG. 3 is a side view of the work platform attached to a ladder.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Referring now to the drawings wherein like reference numerals refer to similar or identical parts throughout the several views, and more specifically to FIGS. 1-3 thereof, there is shown a work platform for a ladder 12. The platform comprises a support assembly that removably attaches to the ladder 12. The platform comprises a tray 8 which attaches to the assembly. The tray 8 has a plane having a front and a rear. The plane has at least a first bin for holding small parts, a tool lasso slot, at least one screwdriver hole, and at least one drill holster slot 17.

Preferably, the plane has at least one hammer hole 3. The plane preferably has a gallon recess 6, a quart recess 9 and a pint recess 7 to hold a gallon, quart and pint container, respectively. Preferably, the plane has a paint scraper 5 slot to hold a paint scraper 5. The tray 8 is preferably made of plastic. Preferably, the plane has a second bin disposed adjacent the first bin. The pint recess 7 is preferably disposed in the quart recess 9 and the quart recess 9 is disposed in the gallon recess 6. Preferably, the plane has a square gallon holder 4.

The plane preferably has a screwdriver image adjacent the screwdriver hole 2. Preferably, the plane has a hammer image adjacent the hammer hole 3. The plane preferably has a paint scraper 5 image adjacent the paint scraper 5 slot. Preferably, the assembly 19 includes a straight bar 11 attached to the tray 8, and a formed rod 16 attached to the straight bar 11 which engages a first horizontal of the ladder 12. Preferably, the tray 8 has an edge which engages a second horizontal of the ladder 12.

The present invention pertains to a method for using a work platform for a ladder 12. The method comprises the steps of obtaining small parts from a first bin in a plane of a tray 8 held to a ladder 12 with a support assembly of the platform. There is the step of placing a tool lasso with a tool in a tool lasso slot in the plane. There is the step of placing at least one screwdriver in a screwdriver hole 2 in the plane for holding the screwdriver. There is the step of placing a drill in a drill holster slot 17 in the plane. There is the step of placing a quart can of paint in a quart recess 9 in the plane. There is the step of placing a paint scraper 5 in a paint scraper 5 slot in the plane.

Tray

FIG. 1 shows the plastic utility tray 8 and the features it encompasses.

The Tool Lasso slots 1 are used with the Werner Tool Lasso bungee system. These slots 1 are used with the tool lasso system to secure tools to the tray 8 while the user is up on the ladder 12.

The tray 8 features two screwdriver holes 2, which are located next to each other to provide a place for the ends of pliers. Next to the screwdriver holes 2 is the hammer hole 3. The drill holster slot 17 and the accompanying icon are located at the center of the paint can recesses 6, 7, and 9. The tray 8 has two small parts trays 10. These trays 10 provide a place for small parts such as nails, screws, or nuts so they won't roll off of the tray 8. A slot on the side of the tray 8 is for a paint scraper 5.

The tray 8 also features impressions in the plastic to accommodate various sizes and shapes of paint and stain cans. The square gallon holder 4 holds the large square plastic gallon paint containers. The round gallon recess 6, quart recess 9, and pint recess 7 hold round paint and stain cans of their respective size.

Assembly

The tray 8 in FIG. 2 attaches to the straight bar 11 which is welded to a formed rod 16. The tray 8 is riveted on both sides to the rod 16 and bar assembly 19. The rivets 18 are set to allow for free motion between the plastic tray 8 and the metal bar-rod assembly 19.

Mounting on a Ladder

The tray assembly 15 can be used on a number of different ladders with slight modifications to the bar and rod assembly 19. The assembly 15 is mounted on a ladder 12, using two rungs 13 and 14. The top extended portion of the tray 8 is positioned to rest on top of the upper step 13 forming the top resting point. The formed rod 16 is then placed on top of the lower step 14 as shown. Once placed, the tray assembly 15 seats into a rested position ready for use.

Although the invention has been described in detail in the foregoing embodiments for the purpose of illustration, it is to be understood that such detail is solely for that purpose and that variations can be made therein by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention except as it may be described by the following claims.
