Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by In wall Fire Ladder This is the best design for a fire ladder that I have seen. It installs right into the wall with just a small square cover showing. You would hardly notice that it was there. I had a carpenter install it but if you are handy, you could probably do it yourself. The carpenter, a 6 foot male, pulled it out and tested it out the window. It held him quite easily. He was then able to fold it up and tuck it back into the box installed in the wall. For $99.00 and installation, this gives me a great deal of security in case of fire. I would highly recommend it. December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great permanent safety fixture I placed this escape latter in an upstairs apartment I own. By building it in the wall it made it exactly where it is needed in the event there is a fire. Also, since this is a rental it made it a permanent fixture rather than something that could "accidentally" be taken in a move. February 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product did the job that a portable ladder could not do We had purchased and returned a portable escape ladder after we determined that our window openings are not constructed in such a way that allows for portable ladders because we have stone on our home exterior. I can't imagine that anyone with stone or maybe even brick could use the portable ladders (even though they state they are adjustable). This ladder was installed by a handyman because I could not do it myself but it was well worth it for the peace of mind. I know that if there is ever an emergency and we have to escape quickly it would super easy and quick to throw the ladder over and climb out. Also, having it attached to the wall beams under the window means that it is very secure and we know it won't budge if we ever have to use it. February 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I've installed 4 of these now and they go in pretty easy, luckily never had to actually use it but if we do I am confident it will work well. June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exactly as advertised Most importantly there were no surprises upon receipt. Bought 3ea and they were of great quality and installed just as advertised. I was curious as to why they wanted you to cut the small hole first...and then found out why. A wire ran along the wall and by cutting the small hole first and finding this 'surprise', I was able to adjust the larger hole cut easily and not have to play Mr. Drywall. Good to follow directions. YouTube video available on their site. Shipped quickly...matter of days. April 22, 2014
