Rated 5 out of 5Â by theo98 Giant Step for Homeowners!
Being a homeowner for over 30 years, you experience the challenges that high ceilings, uneven surfaces and furnishings create when your task is several feet out of your reach. My wife and I previous home equipment fixes were the use of 4â, 6â and 8â conventional stepladders for each particular job. From outside gutter cleanings and soffit repairs to inside high ceiling lighting repairs, AC register work, home decoration installations and painting crown molding, it seemed I always picked either too short or too tall a ladder for each task. The problems that arose with these different tools were overall cost, storage difficulties, lack of stability, transporting (8â) and potential abuse. Now, weâve found a Great Solution that fixes my entire multiple ladder needs without the multiple hassles.
The Little Giantâs new Select Step lightweight aluminum adjustable stepladder system has cured many of our homeowner climbing needs:
*The solid built-in platform âNo-Pinchâ - âSelect Stepâ spreader system maintains a 2-rung stance from the top throughout its full range of height settings. The heavy duty solid step spreader is easy and quick to operate and provides the open ladder a very solid feel and stance. Safety rules, manufacture procedures, attached guideline labels and industry regulations all state that standing on the top cap or lower 1st rung of a step ladder is an extreme safety issue that can cause imbalance and instability, resulting in severe injuries and fatalities from falls. By offering a rock solid, full standing platform at the safest recommended standing height (2nd rung from the top or 2â short of the rated ladder height) weâve found the LG Select Step System Is a Huge Ergonomic Improvement that contributes Greatly to your Personal Safety and Comfort! This will help ensure each user a âsuccessful task completionâ Without becoming part of the 200,00+ accident statistics recorded annually with homeowner and commercial ladder uses (abuses)!
*With easy and quick settings (âRock Locksâ on front & âQuick Adjust Handleâ on back), we can effectively create a 5â (3â standing with 9â reach) to an 8â (6â standing with 12â reach) stepladder that becomes the perfect height every time. The independent front back adjustments allow us to safely set up right against a wall and get close to our work, or set up on stairs and maintain level access to the job at hand. Within the full range of extension, we found the Select Step equally solid and secure!
*With a wide leg stance on the ladderâs front side (27â) and wide footings on the rear leg side, the Select Step is Very Stable at all heights. When I reached out 12â-18â with any of my previous stepladders, I felt uneasy due to wobble and shake. The Select Step allows us to perform the same task with much greater balance and confidence!
*The useful and handy âAir Deckâ platform is an accessory feature that you should consider. We find it not only convenient and workable as an organizational platform for tools and supplies, but more importantly as a solid and stable ergonomic support structure that assist in maintaining our balance and stability while at the safe working height of the Select Step.
*The deep and solid welded rungs (1.75â to 4â) of the Select Step also provide solid footing and comfortable stability while climbing or working. In combination with these and the spreader platform, we found any feeling of height uneasiness is quickly cured!
*With the installed âTip & Glideâ 3â wheels, maneuverability was never easier. However at 26 lbs and only a 5ft height, my wife and I can easily carry the Select Step to wherever the job is located, inside or out!
We can now tackle all of our home project needs anywhere for a comfortable overall 12â vertical reach! In my opinion, these features are not marketing gimmicks, but real world functions that solidify the Select Step System as a giant improvement in home climbing safety and convenience!
Little Giant has accomplished these goals through innovation and functional design creativity. The Select Step model isnât just light, solid and a great valve, but also provides me the security and peace of mind with an Extra Heavy Duty Class 1A OSHA\ANSI Rating and a Lifetime Warranty! The Little Giant Select Step Is the Best home climbing system weâve ever experienced!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JacobH Best ladder I have ever tried
I don't care much for ladders, but I love this one. My wife - even my 10 year old - use it and find it easy and intuitive. When I'm up on the Select Step, I feel like I'm on solid ground.
The other day, I used it to adjust a light on the ceiling and I felt quite at ease and not nervous like you usually are on a ladder several feet in the air - plus it's nice to have something to hold onto up there with the pop-up hand rail. It can also pop out to become a tray to put stuff on like a paint can or for tools and whatnot. Pretty cool.
I like the full platform step, but I wish you could have it wherever you were at. Very nice to roll instead of carry or drag everywhere. I like the twist adjuster on the back much better than the side locks on the front. I pinched a finger my first time using it, so it's not totally idiot proof :)
Well worth the price even if it is a bit more than the standard fold out types. Great that it extends and collapses down. That makes a huge difference - much easier to store.
Great ladder. My first Little Giant. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jimhi Makes my work so much easier!
Only used this ladder for a few days now, but I must say, this is the best ladder I have ever owned! I needed a ladder that I could use on stairs, so I thought I would give this ladder a try. It works great on the stairs, but itâs so much more than that. I have mostly been using it to patch, scrape and paint our bedroom. The platform and handrail make it really easy to work up on the ceiling and high areas on the walls. Lots of holes, and a slot in the âAirDeckâ tray, and also the top cap, make it easy to use several tools without having to climb up and down the ladder. When I pulled old nails out, I just dropped them in the magnetic tray so they donât fall on the floor. Also found the adjustment to a 90 degree ladder is really helpful when working up against the wall.
The ladder is well built, and easy to move around. Itâs made my work so much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BuffaloNetTech Best Ladder Going
As a Field Technician, I have had to carry multiple ladders on top of my truck for ever. This ladder folds down to the point where I can simply place it in the back of my vehicle and go. For the homeowner, it takes minimal space and has more than enough places to wall hang it. I love the simple easy to use design and the features that this ladder comes with. The locking hinge is a plate of aluminum, which makes it the perfect place to stand for long times on the ladder, The rock locks are easy to use and solid. The adjustable tray with the magnetic inset is outstanding. And the wheels, which I first thought was kind of cheesy, come in handy when you have a 40 pound tool bag on one arm and some paperwork in the other. Looking forward to years of service from this ladder.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sunny Great features and versatility
Rugged, sturdy and compact. Replaces my step stool and 5 thru 8' ladders and safer to use because of the air deck. Glad I made this choice.
