Strong, light weight, comfortable treads, nice handrail. Arrived fast, packaged well. Easily assembled: step base is one component; then two side riser-rails. Insert riser-rails, line up screw holes. Tip: a rubber mallet helps here since the aluminum tube-to-tube fit is nice and tight like you'd want it. Screws, washers and lock-nuts are stainless steel as they should be. Thank you, manufacturer, for this detail. Also, to use the quick-removal parts (provided) you install J-hooks. Screws etc. are stainless steel, but I am not sure about the J-hooks and the two brackets you attach to the dock. These ought to be SS, too. I found all parts fit together very well, and the J-hook attachment performs as advertised: strong and secure for use, but ladder just rotates up and easily away for storage after the lake season. You can permanently mount the ladder. The 1/4" SS screws for attaching dock mounting brackets to dock are 2 3/8" long, so more than long enough to use with a 2x6. If you are attaching through greater thickness, you'll need longer screws. Instructions Version 2.0 had one error: "Tools Required" tells you wrong size socket/wrench: instructions say 7/16" but the nuts require a 3/8" socket or wrench, and Phillips screwdriver. Instructions should add that the 3/8" socket should be deep well. You may need another person: getting up under the dock to tighten the nuts is not easy, unless someone else is holding the screws from turning. All in all: I really like this product and am glad I chose it. Probably should have given it all 5s. It's really a good product for the price, too. Now, we'll see how it holds the finish through the season, while immersed in that river water.

    We were pleased with the ladder. However, when we went to assemble it, we needed to work to get the two pieces to sit together on one of them. We just want to see how sturdy they will be before making a final judgement. But so far, we are very pleased.
