Answer: 
It only takes about 10 pounds of force to pull them down. They go back up easy because there are springs to help set it back in place.
Uninstall - not something I'd want to do. Decide before installing and avoid the pain of removing it and patching what would be a big hole in the ceiling.

Answer: 
Installation Requires experience, physical strength, and preferably 2 people. Often, reframing the ceiling location is needed to get the correct size opening. Plus, casing and trim is needed, like a regular door. pull down force is only about 5-10 lbs for most units.

Answer: 
Can't Tell you how hard it is to uninstall. Depends on how well you install it. The pull is rather easy. I would guess it takes maybe 5 lbs of force to pull it down.

You need to have reasonable carpentry skills as it is likely to involve moving a ceiling joist and fitting header timbers to create a suitable sized opening for the ladder to fit into. Ideally you need two fit and strong people to get the attic ladder into place safely before fixing it with nails/screws.
Not sure how many pounds pull force required to pull down the ladder but it isn't hard - there is a fair amount of resistance from the springs when you first start to pull down on the string but once this is overcome the ladder swings down readily.

Answer: 
very little pull down force required; about 5-8 pounds of pull. I dont know why you would want to unistall this, but it would be much easier than the install process (and the install is not hard, but it is much easier if you have two people).

Answer: 
With the drop string it is rather easy to pull down. The spring tension is not enough to make it
an ordeal or difficult. Once the unit starts moving it sort of falls into place.
The second section or bottom steps just require one to grab the lower step and walk it backwards.
We used 2 eye hooks and rope to hold the unit up and in place. While I secured it with 3" Spax screws.
You can do it Nancy.

8 ft. - 10 ft., 22.5 in. x 54 in. Wood Universal Fit Attic Ladder with 250 Maximum Load Capacity is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 54.

It was a simple installation - the key to which was getting it squared in the opening. Since the ladder is made for 8' - 10' ceiling, cutting the bottom to the correct length was critical to maximizing its stability. My customer was ecstatic about how stable the ladder felt when she climbed it. The only drawback that I observed is how much effort it took to OPEN the ladder. At first, my customer couldn't open it at all. I had to teach her how to grab the rope and use her body weight to get it to come down (arm strength was not enough). It seemed like, after 20 or 30 openings, the springs were beginning to relax a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attic ladder After my husband's stroke, I have had all tasks of running the house fall squarely on me; this attic ladder has made it possible for me to more easily and safely at least have a grandson or neighbor help me retrieve or replace stored items in the attic.

There was a hole with a piece of plywood covering it already there. The hole was just too short for the ladder, so I had to elongate it. It took about two hours to install well enough to use and another half an hour to trim out. I am really happy with not having to place a step ladder under the old hole and struggling with the piece of plywood to get access to the attic. I was a little disappointed with the dimensions printed on the box, they were smaller than what the actual rough-in dimensions were.If the dimensions are critical, then grab a tape measurer and verify the size of the ladder before you buy it. I do believe the product is worth the price.

The second ladder also has a split along the rail and was missing the pull down rope. Because the split isn't all the way through the ladder rail it looks like it can be glued and I can add a cleat to hold it. I would have returned this one as well but the construction schedule didn't allow time. I will probable swap it out with a better unit in the near future

What is a first class PITA is the adjustment of the ladder length. Is it possible to come up with an inexpensive template which would help in getting the angle of the cut to be made correct ? How about a plastic template to slide over the leg to draw an accurate line across the leg were the cut needs to be made.
