Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY4Fun Works on 10’4”+ Ceilings!
The product description stated that the ladder was intended for ceiling with a max height of 10’3”. After contacting Werner, I discovered that the product would work for ceilings that are slightly higher. My ladder was installed in a location where the floor to ceiling height was a little over 10’4”. It worked perfectly. Due to being at the upper limit of the ladder’s reach, no trimming of the legs was required (removed one step from the installation process). The adjustable feet allow for a couple of inches of play to bring them in solid contact with the floor. Feels plenty sturdy for average home use.
The installation was simple with two people. I would recommend drilling the pilot holes for the 1/4” hex head lag bolts slightly larger than the 1/8” recommended in the instructions. In my opinion using a 5/32” or 11/64” drill bit will still allow for a snug fit without being so tight that you run the risk of over torquing the bolts and shearing off the heads. A little bar soap to lubricate the threads may also make driving the lag bolts a bit easier.
I textured and painted to match existing ceiling, then trimmed out to finish. Finally, I replaced the pull cord with an eye screw, so as to avoid having a cord hanging in walking space. Opens easily using a homemade pull consisting of an eye hook screwed into the end of a dowel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tori Werner Aluminum Attic Ladder AH2210
Poor design involving wood cover panel being too close to treads thus preventing placing feet completely across tread when ascending or descending ladder. Also, when ladder is located at an eight foot height and framed between 2"X10" joists at the bottom, trying to step from the last ladder step onto the surface of the attic floor, actually requires kneeling onto the floor and crawling far enough to stand up away from the ladder opening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dale Nice ladder, easy to install, well built!
I have a pretty high attic in my garage. I needed an easy way to climb up as I store a lot of camping, sports, summer and winter articles in the attic. This folding ladder has worked out great. It is well built, solid when you climb up and down, and easy to install.
I would recommend this product.

Product works as advertised - just be aware that at this size it is very narrow and you won't be taking big boxes up into the attic. For a replacement latter you probably already know what you're getting, but if you're building a new home or creating a new access point, may want to consider a larger size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JakePC Worth every penny
This attic ladder was amazingly easy to install and has changed the way we store our things. My son and I installed it in less than four hours. It looks great and makes storing things in our attic much easier than it used to be when I had to use my stepladder to access my attic. The weight limit on this ladder is what makes it so useful to us, as both myself and my wife are hefty individuals, and we can go up and down this ladder with armloads of stuff and still not exceed the weight limit. It feels very sturdy, and there's no wobble at all. Well worth every penny, especially since it was priced very reasonably to begin with. I highly recommend it.

Out of all the ladders, this one is pretty great. I've owned several wood versions. The steps may seem flimsy but so far has held up nicely under at least 290lbs. Construction is way better than wood and easy to assemble. Put it up with my son in a few hrs.

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.
