I've created a nice little attic storage space in my garage/shop/studio building and adding access was Step One in the project of installing a new sheetrock/drywall ceiling in the building. The purchase was made much easier by the fact that I own a Werner stepladder and am very happy with it. Before I bought this I watched the installation video a couple of times so my install went real easy. Just be sure to measure carefully and follow the directions and you'll have no trouble. This product is an ingenious blending of the old-style attic stairs and a very nice aluminum folding ladder. The quality is there and the operation is smooth and effortless. I especially like the fact that is is rock solid when it's on the ground. I'm looking forward to years of service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by cg1683 Great Sturdy Ladder, Easy To Install
I purchased this ladder to replace an existing small access hole I had in my garage attic. After elongating the rough opening I installed this ladder. I did the entire project unassisted (I would not recommend this unless you are strong) and completed it in just about 3 hours. The ladder installation is very straight forward and simple. The only tricky part is getting it squared which is why you need to buy some wood SHIMS when you are going to install this. I'd also recommend installing trim around the sides as this makes it look a lot nicer. Other than that, it works flawlessly and can easily support the specified weight of 375 pounds. If you follow the directions you will have no issues with this ladder.

Took me about 6 hours total to install, including preparation, trim, and painting. I didn't use the supplied pull down rope and handle. Instead I substituted about three feet of larger poly rope and 6 inch length of 1 inch diameter PVC pipe for a handle.
Supplied instructions are simple and easy to follow. Besides basic tools, all you need are deck screws, 1x boards for temporary support, and shims. Only assistance I had was my teenage daughter for a few minutes to help me lift the ladder into position and rest it on the temporary supports (1X boards)
Will be nice to have a pull down ladder for access to storage in the space above the garage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by JRNFL Good sturdy attic ladder
This was an "as advertised" attic ladder that we used to replace a wobbly wooden contractor installed ladder in our garage attic space. Installation was straight forward assuming you follow the directions and have a "helper." I do have one negative comment regarding the ladder design. Our ceiling was just over 9 feet. We purchased the ladder designed for that height. After cutting the length and installing the ladder feet as per the installation directions, the ladder sits fully extended and stable when in the down position. Problem arises when you stow the ladder. The lower section, because of where the ladder is hinged is difficult for a shorter person to reach. I'm over 6 feet tall and can reach the extension to deploy the ladder. My wife at 5 feet 7 inches, can't. I had to install a pull string on the lower extension for her to deploy the ladder after pulling the hinged door open from the ceiling.
