This ladder is lightweight, easy to store, solidly constructed, and collapses easily and smoothly. The main problem is that Home Depot advertises it as a sixteen-foot ladder; in reality, it only extends to twelve feet and eight inches. (That's a "sixteen foot reach" if you are six feet tall.) I would recommend Home Depot's SKU # 1000206094 instead, which extends to a full fifteen feet and six inches and is roughly the same price as this ladder.

    I bought this ladder because of it's versatility and ability to reduce in size. My barn's tack room is to small to support regular stairs. As shown in the pic, I use it to access storage in the barn's tack room as well as to function as normal ladder. Needless to say, I have been very pleased with this ladder Thanks

    I have owned about 8-9 telescopic ladders from 3 different manufactures over the years. We use them in our construction business. This one is the best I have owned. I love the features this ladder has. The soft close, only needing to push the bottom release levers to have it nest and the visible lock out indicators are my favorites. It appears well made so I anticipate several years of use.

    This 14’ telescoping ladder has rather large round legs with very flat steps. The ladder weighs about 22 pounds and has a strap that keeps the ladder compressed. This doesn’t take up much space at all. The steps show a red or green line at each step to indicate that level is locked and safe to climb. The first time it took two of us to exert a little effort to extend the ladder. The only uncomfortable thing is the steps are set at a 90-degree angle from the side rails. (See picture). The rungs don’t angle to compensate for the “leaning.” This causes you to stand on a corner edge of the step ladder unless the ladder is fairly upright. This ladder is really useful as it doesn’t take up much space at all.

    Cosco 16' telescopic ladder-- folds-up really small! Sturdy, easy/safe collapse, light, stable on a wall..... My 22' slide-extension ladder from the 1970s is awful big and getting rickety. I have tried other telescopic ladders- they get small but can be painful to extend and collapse. This Cosco is very well designed! You do have to read all the directions to get it extended and collapsed, but after your first time it goes easy. Going down, you slide two buttons and it goes down by itself, slowly (on an air cushion). When new you may have to help the last few sections down. Once collapsed it is very small! Fits real easy in a small space. Even the Miata barn! (see attached photo) Easy fit in the trunk of most small sedans, so you can bring it home or go help a friend. All lightweight extension ladders wobble. There are stiffer ladders but much heavier. This one is comparable to most that a homeowner would carry. On a wall, perhaps better than most. It is however a little limber in "twisting". I put it against a tree trunk, and near the top (with only a 1-point support) it was a bit twisty. But around the house against walls or roof edges, very solid. A word about size. This is sold as "16 foot". It is actually 152 inches fully extended, a bit shy of 13 feet. This is in line with how extension ladders are rated. A 2-piece "16-foot" extension ladder is two 8-foot lengths. They must overlap about 3 feet in the center, so maximum length is really 13 feet. The top rung is a half-foot down from the ends of the rails, so the top rung is 12-1/2' or 150 inches from the bottom. On the Cosco telescopic ladder, the top rung is at the top of the tubes and is 152 inches from the bottom-- comparable and a bit more than a 2-piece extension ladder. You should not stand higher than third rung down, so your feet wind up at 116 inches from the bottom, and an average man's face is at 180 inches from the bottom. Counting slant, 175 inches or 14-1/2 feet from the ground. If you are just screwing-in a bulb, you can reach more than a foot over your head, 16 feet. If you are wiring a fixture, it should not be much over 14 feet off the ground. This will be true for all "16-foot extension ladders", 2-piece or telescopic.

    I found the ladder, full extended, very stable to hold my 250(+)lbs while repairing the roof gutters. Took some practicing at first, which is no surprise. Do read the instructions about opening the ladder when fully closed. Is very light, as anticipated, so easy to move and hang on the wall hooks
