It’s like dropping 10-20 pounds 10″
Beware the collapsing mechanism. It is loud, jarring and DANGEROUS. According to the instructions, to collapse the ladder you need to hold it upright and press the tabs to collapse each rung one at a time. The rungs then fall on top of one another with a thud. It’s like dropping 10-20 pounds 10″. And if you get your finger (or a part of it) caught between collapsing rungs, you’ll want to close the ears of any children in the area as you unleash an obligatory barrage of profanity at the designers of such a system. It might be safer to collapse the rungs while the ladder is on an angle so that they collapse more slowly.On the positive side, it seems well built, sturdy enough and looks cool.
Ended up buying another I like it so much!!
I absolutely love this! I bought it for my son who just bought his first home. Since he lives out of state I have to worry about him getting it back to his house.Well,I didn’t need to for a while because I kept the first one I bought, but I did end up getting him one too later. I am only 5 foot and moving ladders around for me is a clumsy project. This ladder is compact and easy to move. I don’t need to raise it any higher than necessary when I want to hang something. It collapses and raises easily and leaves no marks when I lean it against my walls. I am always very uncomfortable on the 5 foot ladders that open up into a “V” and you climb up one side. I have read some of the other comments and I see where a lot of comments are about watching your fingers when collapsing the rungs. Well, no kidding. I wouldn’t let my grandchildren put it up and down and I did not have a problem with the rungs collapsing and making large noises. The levers are conveniently placed that even my small hands are able to wrap around the sides below the rung I am collapsing and let it slide through my fingers slowly. I purchased this at a reduced rate for my honest opinion and it is well worth the money they are asking. As far as using for a contractor, I can’t say, but I am comfortable recommending for the average homeowner. The velcro does remain on the ladder, but you can wrap it around out of the way and stick the Velcro to itself to remove from your way, and with it attached, it doesn’t get misplaced.
Reasonable Quality for the Cost
I needed this ladder to reach a fire alarm in a vaulted ceiling. It did the trick although not quite as stable as a traditional ladder would have been. But I don’t have room to store a 10 foot regular ladder and the telescoping ladder is very compact when closed. Also used it to reach some exterior woodwork but I had to have some ad hoc stabilizer on the ground to account for the uneven terrain. I think this ladder iss pretty generic and looks like it’s produced in China by one manufacturer and sold under many labels.Reasonable value for cost.
used daily for satellite installs
Ok the ladder feels flimsy looks like it will snap.. but I have had this for a week now. I use it every day for satellite Internet installs. With me my gear and dish we weigh about 240. I had it fully extended yesterday the roof was over 11 feet from the ground, climbing it feels like you will fall but it holds me and once on top I feel as comfortable as I do when I am on my 70 pound ladder. I recommend to everyone. Oh and the posts that say dangerous pay attention to life and don’t blame other people.. it says right on it how to close it no problems for me
Great ladder for a travel trailer.
We use this ladder to clean off the slide out on our travel trailer. It supports my 300 pound husband just fine, The wide bottom legs don’t sink to much. We store it in the drawer under the loveseat in the camper, it fits perfect!
Very happy with it
Very happy with it. I was concerned because it is 1/3 of the price of similar products . . .and generally when it is cheap you get what you paid for. In this case I feel I got a lot more.We are a security company and we put one in every cruiser. It takes little space in the car and is perfect for us to climb up to our cellular surveillance camera to reset them of occasional maintenance. Could also be used to pull someone from a second floor window or that type of things. You’d be amazed what we can see in the security business. I love it!
