Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Compact and easy to put together and a good value Installation was easy and the ladder fix exactly to meet building codes for egress access January 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works perfectly for designed purpose Works perfectly for designed purpose which is primarily as an escape ladder for window wells - not for kid's playhouses or to tote around and use as a portable ladder. Assembles and installs easily - just make sure it fits your window well before ordering. September 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Use only for escape ladder I ordered this ladder for my grandkids to use to get to the second floor of the playhouse we have in our yard; not the right choice. This ladder is not durable enough for anything more than an occasional use escape ladder. June 27, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Certainly will not support 250#. Ladder is made from light weight aluminum. Designed to hang over the edge of a window well, in that situation, there is no support at the bottom. Simply attaching the ladder to the wall; it started to collapse immediately. I had to add additionaly support at the base & against the wall . This ladder certainly cannot support 250# as it is designed. December 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Increase your safety This light weight, sturdy, non-rusting basement ladder has given my finished lower level security and increased the value of my entire home.The size of the escape ladder fits into the window well under the plastic cover making it available when needed.
