Header reads that load capacity is 350 lbs. It also repeats that throughout product overview. However, in product specifications details section it lists maximum load/weight capacity as 300lbs. Which is it?

Answer: 
I think your concerned about someone breaking into your home from inside the attic if thats the question?
Yes, you can push the ladder down from the attic and use it to exit the attic. It's not safe doing it that way but you can. If you put a lock on the side that finished (not in the attic), that will stop a break in to your home.

It's prohibited to do it, if you push the ladder from above it would open but is not allowed to do it.

Answer: 
NO it can NOT 7'-9" is the shortest it can be trimmed to still work properly and safely. If you need to get down that low you should get a wood attic ladder that is designed for min. 7'-0" to a max. 8'-9" ceiling height. Models S224P or CS224P will work.

Elite 7 ft. 9 in. - 10 ft., 22.5 in. x 54 in. Aluminum Attic Ladder with 350 lb. Maximum Load Capacity is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 126.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ladder is 'kinda' OK, but below what I expected Pros: - Installation was easy: perfect fit! - Looks good. Cons: First, when package came the plastic bag with nails and bolts was torn apart and all of them were all around box. I did not find a couple of washers. Second, "insulation" is not fixed and moving all the time (I will glue it later myself). I am afraid that with time it will be destroyed; once you climb you hit the insulation with your feet (steps are quite narrow). Third, all bolts and/or nuts had bad thread (maybe due to time spent flying inside box). Finally, the ladder looks solid, but under my weight (220 lb) it "plays"; stays sturdy on the ground, but bends like it ready to make DNA helix. Good projecting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The ladder is of adequate strength and functionality and would label the cost or value on this it... The ladder is of adequate strength and functionality and would label the cost or value on this item as good. I would comment that operationally it does not have an extra strength feel to it if that is what you are seeking. My ceiling is 10ft which maxed the extension of ladder. Pull down is relatively easy and convenient. Climbing is easy and steps have raised seams for a good grip. Closing back up on the other hand with the 10ft ceiling height is cumbersome unless you are greater than 6ft tall. The instructions that came with ladder listed a completely different approach to securing the ladder for install which is a key step. I chose the online video version which worked fine. They also have some fiber insulation pieces (3) which move around when opening and closing so I glued mine. My only other concern is the gas pistons which operate door may not have an extended life in high use scenarios. Thanks, BDS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attic ladder Installed in two sessions. 1st session was cutting the opening to correct size (very messy). Putting the ladder in during 2nd session was quick and easy. Used a couple of ladders and boards along with ropes to support the ladder while securing to frame as was done by 63 year old male and female but was fairly easy for a 10' ceiling. Nice to be able to easily get into attic now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ladder Very substantial, heavy-duty aluminum ladder. Has gas tubes instead of springs for easy close. Aluminum ladder, so no splinters. Comes with square insullation panels under folding ladder - so air does not leave attic and into house. Closes flush with framing. Excellent...no regrets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total junk Cheaply built, the door is flimsy, and not even plywood. I am afraid to get on it with anything of weight. It doesn't close straight without messing around. Terrible product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Definitely need two people to install its a bit heavy to hold up until you can start to secure. But very nice product
Date published: 2016-11-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made Installation of this was very easy and the instructions were complete with good illustrations. The ladder itself is sturdy and easy to adjust to the floor height. The frame, however, is poorly made and was split when I received it. I made new parts from oak. The "insulation" was a few pieces of styrofoam poorly glued on beneath the ladder. They all fell off during installation. Once the door was painted with latex paint, it warped an now does not close tightly. Finally after about six months, the gas cylinders do not hold the ladder completely shut and there is about a 2 inch gap opposite the hinges.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy a ladder with gas cylinders! In a previous residence I had an attic ladder with springs for over 15 years with no issues. I didn't bother to think about the difference between a gas cylinder and a spring when I purchased this ladder about a year ago. The cylinder failed and when I attempted to purchase a replacement cylinder I was quoted a price of over $50. I am replacing the whole ladder with one with springs.
