Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalgirl 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by dvk Ladder is 'kinda' OK, but below what I expected
- Installation was easy: perfect fit!
- Looks good.
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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shack 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.

Did not live up to the advertising
Not very sturdy considering the rating

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rjv156 Poor Warranty, broke after 1 1/2 years
I purchased these stairs to replace a set of old wooden ones. The install went fine with no problems. We use these stairs twice a year, once to take down the holiday decorations and the other time to put them away. Today I saw that the stairs came down by themselves. I took a look at it and it appears that the gas cylinders failed. The warranty on the stairs is 90 days from shipment. Which means the warranty was over probably even before I purchased the stairs. The manufacture date on my stairs is July 2011. Now it will cost me $60 for two new gas cylinders, I have no idea what shipping will be. I would not purchase these stairs again and would consider not purchasing anything from this company because of the poor warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denny Wish I would have installed it years ago!!!
This is a nice sturdy, smooth operating ladder without the weight and creaks and cracks of a wood ladder. I am so happy to have this ladder installed, after 14 years of lifting myself off the top of my 6’ stepladder like a gymnist on the parallel bars. I wish I would have done this years ago! I’ve climbed my share of wood attic ladders in the past, and I feel safer on this aluminum ladder than I ever did on any of the wood ones, easier operating too with the gas cylinders vs springs. Treat yourself to this ladder!

Overall, we'll built BUT: 1- this model is supposed to be insulated, it's got a couple of cheap pieces of Styrofoam that fell off during install; 2- there is no seal between the hatch and the edge; 3- the ladder is actually longer than stated and needed to be cut for proper 'unfolding', really watch that measurement from where it's going to be mounted to the floor.
