Ideas on how to mount half ladder

I replaced my old steel full length ladder with a Front Runner half ladder. What I didn't know is that the bottom half of the ladder just hangs there with no attachment point. Is this the case with all half ladders? I like it because it weights nothing so I'd like to keep it. Any ideas on how to mount the bottom portion in the least invasive manner? Do I really need to drill through the capping? Suggestions are welcome.

Will it lay of over the rivets already there on the cappings? If it does, I would just drill out the rivets with a 3/16 bit and bolt the ladder through those rivet holes. No extra holes made.

Yeah - drill through the rivets in the capping then bolt on. I'd probably put some sort of backing plate on the inside.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking as well. Only one rivet matches up to the flat part but its better than nothing.
