Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Purchase Appears to be a sturdy and long lasting ladder for our boat dock March 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice looking, easy to install, works well Tried to order directly from the manufacturer after I viewed the u-tube video of dogs or people using the ladder . However the cost of shipping was as much as the ladder. I was delighted to find home depot started carrying the product with free shipping to my local store. In addition to pets and Able people, this slanted ladder is great for us over 50 folks the need an easier way out than a regular vertical dock ladder. Great product. Reasonable price. July 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best dock ladder out there i looked at numerous ladders before purchasing this one. While it is a bit more expensive than most, it is worth every penny. Getting in and out of the lake is a breeze with this step-like ladder. It is a bit heavy to pull up once it's in the wate but I've attached a rope to the end and once you know where the leverage point is, a solid consistent pull gets it up and out of the water where it self-drains and sits dry and algae free September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Addition to any dock. Ordering and picking up from Home Depot saves on shipping costs. Fit inside my 2011 Ford Escape. Took the pieces out of the box when taking it home. When picking up just make sure the bag of bolts, washers and nuts is in the box if the box looks damaged. The stairs are very sturdy, well made and easy to install. The holes to mount to the dock are 1/2 but I used 3/8 bolts instead because if you used 1/2 inch bolts you can't use washers and I wanted to use washers to prevent the bolts from digging into the plastic on the top. I used lag bolts where there was plenty of wood to screw into and bolts and nuts where there was just the planks. The instructions could be a little better by suggesting some of the mounting options. Take a look at your dock before you pick it up so you can pick up the screws and bolts at the same time. The stairs work great, so much easier than a ladder. I like that the stairs lay flat on the dock when not in use so they don't block my view like other dock ladders. July 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice and easy This was very easy to install, and I think it looks better than it does in the photo. I may have installed it a little more tightly to the edge of my raft than intended, because the ladder/steps didn't "latch" into the down position the way the instructions implied that it should, but they fill with water and stay well submerged anyway... that might be more important somewhere with wave action, but in my pond that's not an issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product is just what I wanted. Steps are very deep and easy to walk on. My husband made a pulley system so I can easily lower and raise the ladder when needed. Works perfectly. February 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOnderful product, wonderful service The Tommy Docks Techstar Plastics5 Stair Step Molded Polyethylene Dock Ladder is awesome, as are all the Tommy Docks products and having them available through Home Depot has been great! Saves on shipping and offers the convenience of in-store pick up! May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy ladder - easy to use and install. The ladder is easy to use and sturdy. The only difficulty is that to lift it out of the water, we will need to install a pulley system. It is too heavy to lift out without that. We had a problem with the shipping. The box was torn when it arrived. The washers and bolts needed to install the ladder were just loose in the box, and one of the bolts was missing along with a washer. The washer was easy to replace, but Home Depot does not carry the type of bolts used to install the ladder. We had to go to a True Value Hardware to find the bolt. July 29, 2014
