Answer: 
It claims to be 300 pounds, BUT when looking at what actually holds the steps I am doubtful that it would hold that much on a regular basis. Also, the steps have some "give" in them, probably for comfort, but after seeing the light weight fasteners that hold the steps to the frame, the "give" makes me nervous.

Answer: 
Congrats to B. Bill. You are the closest. The OEM says the top step (not the top paint tray) is 27" high off the ground. as to everybody else's guesswork, sorry, but if you don't know the answer for sure, please don't post an incorrect answer. It helps no one, and confuses everyone. Thanks.

Does the shelf hold a paint tray?

Within the last 20 or more years, ladder manufacturers want you to put a roller/ paint tray at the very top of the ladder. That is too close to the ceiling to be useful!! I want a ladder or step stool that puts it back where old ladders used to have it!

Answer: 
I specifically asked if it holds a paint tray that you use with a roller. If it does NOT, maybe you can change it and push that feature! Having 7 ft. ceilings and having the paint tray at 6 ft. doesn't work, as with step ladders. I don't want the tray on the floor and I don't want it that high up either.

Answer: 
On the back of the ladder at the top (3rd) step, there is a cross brace. At that point, there is a black lever that you push down, which allows the back part of the ladder to release and fold against the front. Just press the lever down and push the back and front together. Hope that helps.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 92 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HAPPY This was one of the stores daily "special purchase" products and I could not pass it up. The wide steps and being able to hold on as you step up made me feel safe. I am an older lady and not as steady on my feet as I use to be and overweight. I was looking for something that would make it easier for me to do things for myself rather than have to wait for someone else to get around to doing it for me. I recommend this for anyone that feels the same. You will never need to purchase another. The only thing is it is pretty heavy. I did not consider that but would have purchased anyway. This is also really good for changing light bulbs with the way ceilings are these days. The tray is a nice plus. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Small but sturdy This ladder is a good size for medium jobs, and very sturdy plus well made. I've used it several times and the addition of the paint tray is a huge help. My only complaint is that when we first started using it, the latch catch didn't allow it to fully open and once on the ladder it would open with the additional weight. That initial issue has since disappeared and was likely due to it not being used and the operation fairly stiff in the beginning. Now it's working fine. Good value and I would have given it a 5 star if not for the initial issue. August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by A lot of plastic This ladder might work for some applications but the hard plastic front "feet" made this an instant return item for me. I wouldn't trust this to stay put on any smooth surface, and I'm sure it would have damaged my wood floors. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best step stool ever Very strong design. I'm over the usual limit of 250Lb and getting older so I searched for a strong and safe step stool and this is the best I found and it is only sold at Home Depot. Very pleased, sturdy feel when I stand on it,the high handle or bar at the top is a huge safety feature no other brand has. The step area is wide, the tray at the top is wide and very useful for tools,paint,etc. Slightly heavier than the flimsy ones but sturdy is what I needed. I feel very safe on this model and expected to pay more for this. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great purchase I really like this ladder because it is easy to use and I don't have to get someone to get me a big ladder because this is perfect August 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The verdict is still out Considering this ladder has a 300 lb rating it does not seem very sturdy. I have used it with no problem, but then I weigh less than the 300 lb limit. When looking at the steps all that appears to keep them attached/in place on the ladder frame are small, light weight connectors and the folding mechanism. Also, the steps have some "give" in them, probably for comfort, but after viewing how little actually supports them, the "give" makes me a little nervous. Like I said the verdict is still out on this ladder. A couple of good things is that it is lightweight to carry, folds very flat for storage and the top shelf is great for holding tools, etc. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by At last ... a sturdy stepladder! Thanks to this excellent stepladder, I can now perform household tasks without worrying about being on a flimsy stepladder. Most of the time I just need a boost of a couple of feet so it is perfect for changing high lightbulbs and getting things off the top shelves and also being able to dust those higher shelves. It has a sturdy rail to hold onto. I have recently bought several home maintenance products from Home Depot to help make my life easier and safer. I am really pleased with this one. August 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A decent purchase Using double-faced carpet tape, I adhered non-slip rubberized material (open-weave, like we use to line shelves) to each tread because I don't consider it non-skid enough without these add-ons. Also, and this isn't the fault of the ladder - I should have researched more in-depth before ordering - I was disappointed that, where I have 9-ft. ceilings, on the top step I am not close enough to safely reach my HVAC filters (I am 5'5"), so I am still having to drag out my utility ladder for that task, which is scary when I am home alone. (For the information of others, that uppermost step is 28" above the floor.) And like other reviewers, I agree that it's kind of a pain to have to use two hands to open it (but refolding it is a one-hand operation). So it's a keeper, but I was hoping it would replace my ladder, which it does not. It feels more secure than a regular ladder, but for me, doesn't reach quite high enough. February 10, 2016
