Answer: 
Ladder does not need to rest on ground but back of ladder will need to rest against dock/bulk head etc if the bottom of the ladder does not touch the ground. If the bottom of ladder touches the ground the back of the ladder does not need to rest against anything. If there is not some type of support on the bottom or back of the ladder the ladder is free to swing virtually 360 degrees around its hinge.

Answer: 
The ladder clips under the edge of the dock and is held in place by bolts with lock nuts. The ladder fills with water when down providing additional stability. It was not difficult to raise the ladder slowly to allow the water to drain and then the ladder comes completely onto the dock and folds flat to the dock. Hope this helps.

Customer Reviews

5 Step Wide Flip Up Polyethylene Dock Ladder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality We bought this ladder to use off our dock on the sound. Based on the reviews it seemed great quality and value, which it is. The video shows the ladder in use for water that comes close to the top of the dock. For our house, the water is probably 3-4 feet below the dock so it doesn't work as well for us with the dog. We had to put an additional brace under the first step into the water to make it stick out from the dock. We love the feature that you can put in and out of the water which is great for safety. We use a metal pole to lift out of the water because it is very heavy once filled with water. Even though this ladder isn't perfect for us, it is only because we have so much space between the dock and water. Great quality!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ladder for people and pets! I wasn't sure about ordering this ladder but I'm glad I did! It is so easy to use. A little heavy to pull out so make sure you use some leverage. Much less expensive than the wet steps brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swim ladder Excellent ladder! Access to lake is so easy and regress even better. Everyone in our family is loving it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulk head ladder Sturdy and able to support good amount of weight. Using it in salt water, time will tell if the bolts in the hinge will last as they are not galvinized. They may be zinc plated. Mounting hardware is not included so you will need 8 lag bolts and washers to secure to surface. Ladder does not need to rest on the bottom to be used. However, the back of the ladder will need to rest on the back of the dock/bulkhead if the bottom of the ladder is not resting on the bottom of pond/lake/pool etc... A sturdy 2X4 of at least 6 feet will ease in lifting the ladder from the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ladder for Boat Dock This ladder made access from the water to the boat dock so easy for both young and old alike. We are so pleased. Our grandchildren love swimming in the lake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Relief!!! I'm a 70 year old new owner of a lake house and the existing aluminum ladder on our dock was narrow and hurt my feet. This new ladder had wide steps and the ladder installs at an angle making it much easier and pain free to get out of the lake. A wonderful product that makes lake access easier and safer for all age groups. Installation was easy! Don't hesitate!! You won't regret this purchase!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Thing is Great It is lightweight and easy to install. The water fills the stairs and makes them heavy in the water so they are stable. Makes is very easy for a 60+ YO with arthritis to get out of the water, as it projects out at about 30 degree angle. There is also a built in recessed area to grab hold of til you get to the top. Then you can grab the built in handles. Simple, great design. We also installed a treated wood staircase from the dock to the water and I wish we had done this first. It would have saved us a bunch, because this is the stairway we prefer. The lighter color makes cleaning a little mor frequent, but surprisingly, the steps themselves do not get unusually slick like the wood stairs. One thing I wish this product had is a way to raise it out of the water when not in use. I plan to put a cable/pulley system from the bottom step to the dock, so we can get it upright in fall.
