Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tailz28 great product at 1/2 the price of comps
Got this excellent ladder from HD for less than $50 shipped free. This is less than ½ of cost of comparable products. Nice wide steps and the indispensable paint/tool tray. Don’t let the Skinny name deter you, plenty of width and stability for your home projects. Third step will get you above 8’ for ceiling work with that all important grab rail for safety.
While the steel construction adds weight it provides excellent stability and is not difficult to move and store, but don’t keep out of doors as steel will rust over time. Thanks HD for this great value!!

This ladder allows me to reach a 9 foot ceiling while standing on a large comfortable step. The tray holds a 1 gallon paint can and tools. It is easy to open and close and is very sturdy. Glad I bought this stool.

I picked up my ladder from the store and when I got it home and unwrapped it the back lower brace was bent. It had to be from rough shipment. It had 3 front feet and only one back foot. My wife and I tried it out and loved it. The deep steps are the best thing. It's healthy on old feet and very stable. It is not aluminum. Even though it's skinny it weighs about 40 lbs. You feel like you are standing on something very stable. I hunted for a while too find a 4 step stool/ ladder. Home Depot had it on-line but they were out of them. I checked every day until they finally got them back.
I ended up bringing the damaged and flawed one back and Home Depot reordered and shipped me another to my house. While waiting for the new one I wrote an email to Tricam Industries Customer Support about changing the design of the ladder so it has four feet like the back feet. If you were to use the ladder outside the small feet on the front would sink into the ground because most of the weight is on the front of the ladder. I suggested that all they would have to do is turn the back feet around where the part that extends outward would extend inward. They wouldn't have to change the design of the ladder just take a right back foot and turn it around and do the same with a left back foot. The ladder would still fold up properly. I asked if they would send me a right and left back foot for my improvement suggestion. I signed off with my name and address.
Tricam replied to my email and told me they where shipping me 2 back feet. She said by installing them it would void any warranty or liability. Actually it makes the ladder safer.
I received them in 2 days. My replacement ladder came in yesterday and I changed out the front feet. Now I love my ladder/stool even more. I am attaching some pics.

I'm a petite woman, 5'2", and I can touch the top of a 9.5' ceiling while standing comfortably on the highest step with no fear (and I have a fear of heights). I like that it's a step stool more than a ladder because the steps can accommodate my entire foot/feet. It is a bit heavier than I would like, but the stability of the steps make it worth it. And it folds real skinny and is easy to store.

I needed to do some painting around the house; however I have a knee problem and regular ladders give me fits.
I saw this online because I could not find anything suitable in the store. I currently have a three step ladder but it was not tall enough.
Was I amazed at the quality, need I say for the price, and it has worked out wonderfully.
Tall enough and sturdy enough to do the high chores with no mess. It is a little heavier to carry than average step ladders, but not too bad. The only drawback is that the regular sized paint trays are a little larger than the tray holder, so you have to be careful if you want to use with a paint tray.
But it is wonderful and you don't heel wobbly on it at all!

Heavier than expected - but this works well. Sturdy and reliable. I am average height and can easily reach a 9 ft. ceiling on the 3rd step. Searched a long time for a 4-step step stool at the right price. I am very happy with this product. I do wish Home Depot carried it in-store, as the shipping takes for freakin' ever, and shipping price adds quite a bit. A GREAT product for a fair price. Wish that everything was this way. I would recommend for women, elderly, and those who have a fear of ladders, as this little beauty doesn't feel like a ladder at all.

Finding a step ladder of this size (and cost) is extremely difficult. In any stores (including 3 home depots I checked) I was only able to find a 2 or 3 step ladder that you would use for things like reaching the top shelf in the kitchen. I use this for painting, decorating the Christmas tree, reaching lighting, etc and I am always carrying it up and down stairs. The wide steps are useful and stable and the work tray is super convenient. The only small complaint I really have is the tray is a little flimsy and the ladder is relatively heavy. I am 5'5" and 120 lbs and can carry it with little difficulty when in the folded position. My parents have this ladder purchased from home depot about 6 years earlier and it seems to be slightly better quality without the weight. I hope this one holds up just as well as theirs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barb lean and mean! Beautifully designed equipment: I got two!
I was looking for a step ladder that would collapse easily and allow me to reach higher than your typical step ladder. This is it. The price was right and it is surprisingly sturdy. I also like that it will support 300 lbs. I am nowhere near that heavy, but it's nice to know that it has that kind of structural integrity. It folds up to maybe three inches in depth, so it takes up very little room when stored. I bought two: one for home and one for school, so that I can reach the ceiling high bookcases without having to climb up on the narrow counter space. I am very happy with the purchase. I also like how there is a hand grip space above the final step unlike most ladders. With this one, you can climb on the fourth step and still have something to hang on to. Brilliant design.
