Hanging artificial vines over a small pool with only a skimpy plywood cover made me decide not to trust my antique, shaky step stool. So I bought the Gorilla step stool expressly for the purpose of being able to complete the project confident that I would not be tumbling into the pool. Worked like a charm. Project complete!

It's the best step stools I ever owned! They're light weight, sturdy and compact for tight space storage. I also like the top handle for holding cordless drills, other tools and miscellaneous items. I purchased more than one and I also purchased two of the the 2-Step Aluminum Step ladders. They are well worth their price!

Love, love, love this lightweight ladder! It is very sturdy and light. And don't get me started about how it is so thin I can store it anywhere! I am an avid do-it-yourself-er and crafter, so I have a lot of supplies stored on high shelves. This ladder makes it so much easier to reach my supplies. The tool caddy at the top makes it easy to hold a few tools while working on projects. Great for all kinds of projects like cleaning, changing bulbs, painting. Many thanks to my sister for my wonderful birthday present.

    I absolutely love this ladder! Great price. It's extremely lightweight but, sturdy. Folds up thin and is easy to store. I use it to get the dust off the top of kitchen cabinets where my cookie jars are displayed; reaching stuff at the top of the closet; changing lightbulbs and, getting the cobwebs and dust off the ceiling fans, light fixtures and ceiling.

      8 lbs. - light and sturdy
      I have had this for two months and used dozens of times,this aluminum ladder has super sturdy feeling steps and when on the top platform, you feel safe and you are eyes high to the ceiling. The weight of this ladder is 8 LBS compared to my two step steel portable foldup is 15 LBS. The angle when open doesn’t take up as much room as the old two step steel ladder I have been using. Nice feature is the screwdriver holder slots and little cup to hold small hardware without finding a pocket to put things in, the fold down hanger could have been designed to hold a radius handle , I have never seen a handle that was not a radius. Rubber feet are a plus considering I use this on my inside floors. 5 STARS, I especially like how the price went up 8 dollars on-line due to the 5 star ratings coming in. Make something special and stick to it, versus a supply and demand pricing system.

      Loved it so much, I made a video
      Meet my new favorite ladder. Here's why: 1.) It's cheap - literally the best price for this quality between the big box stores I visisted (though I got this from the seeds program) 2.) It's sturdy and durable. I can move around all over the ladder yet it stays planted in place. Not wiggling, moving or shaking on the hinges 3.) It folds exceptionally flat - about 3 inches. We keep finding new places we can store it out of the way 4.) It's high enough to let me 5'6'' wife reach our highest kitchen shelves (9 feet up) 5.) The ladder is light. I can lift it with one finger 6.) It's well thought out with a nice shelf and an easy but effective lock to hold it in place Check out the video

      This ladder is amazing
      Ok, every home could use this ladder. I will include a few pictures on how I used this gorilla. I've used it for painting my dining area, light bulb install and installing smoke alarms around the house. I can not stop saying how much I really like this 3 step ladder. Just be sure to check the weight amount it allows. It's lightweight as it describes and folds up nicely and can fit in a narrow small location. It's strong, durable and easy to fold. I've put it to use as soon as I pulled it out the box. No more bulky six foot ladder. This is my go to ladder. Also, has a utility tray which is very useful.

      Nice Size Step Stool
      This is a great step ladder for use when a smaller step ladder isn't quite high enough but you don't want to drag out a full ladder. It is light weight and built very sturdy, plus, it has storage at the top for tools! Our garage has a high ceiling and the smaller step stool wouldn't let me reach the overhead lights to change the bulbs. With the extra step this one allows me to change the bulbs with minimal effort.

      THE NAME SAYS IT ALL
      The ladder it's self is extremely light weight. Perfect for the odd jobs around the home (light bulb changes, a/c filter in ceiling, dusting down high ceilings, and of course painting, ETC.) Has a few cut outs in the tray to hold items like paint brushes, scrapers, you get the idea. Very compact design. It says 225 LB weight limit which is surprising, seeing as how it is so light weight.

      Sleek And Light Weight
      This is one of the nicest ladders that I have ever seen. It's made out of extruded aluminum tubing, poly fittings and large top step. Its very light weight, approx 5 pounds and super sturdy. Everything fits very tight so there is no side to side slop or play. Everything on this ladder looks to be purpose built for just this one ladder. The top handle is large and has lots of pockets, trays for tools or parts. It also has a small fold out hook (yellow) for a rag or small pail. The top step has a lock to keep the ladder from folding up when open. It's held in place with gravity and not a spring so releasing it is very easy. The ladder can be opened or closed with just one hand. The two piece feet on the ladder are cast poly with very soft rubber bottoms that won't slip or mar floors. And since they are two pieces the aluminum legs won't ever push thru the cast poly or rubber and damage soft wood floors or other surfaces. Overall this is one of the best small ladders that I have ever seen. If you need something smaller this is one to consider. Highly recommend this ladder.

      Solid Step Ladder
      I'm using the Gorilla 3-step aluminum ladder to reach my products on the upper shelves. The ladder feels very solid, no swinging or sideways movements like you get it with some cheap ladders. The listed capacity of 225 lbs. is rather low, but there's probably a safety factor of 1.5 or even 2. I'm right there at the capacity but the ladder is solid and doesn't budge at all. The ladder is assembled without flaws and looks great. It's easy to open and close even with one hand. The tray on top is helpful to put down tools and screws. The Flip-Hook is plastic and I'm not sure if I would trust it to hold a gallon of paint.

      Best Ladder!
      I have the Gorilla 2-Step ladder and liked it so much that I decided to also get the 3-Step. I can only repeat myself by saying this is the best step ladder on the market. It is light weight, very sturdy and made of high quality aluminum. It will not move when you step on it. The two bottom steps are wide and made of texured aluminum which makes them very safe. The top step gives you a large textured plastic platform, which makes it easy to turn and twist without ever getting the feeling of loosing your balance. The reach of the ladder is awesome. I can get all the way to my normal height ceiling from the second step. The third step gets you all the way up there into every corner. Another nice aspect is the ease with which the ladder can be foolded and unfolded. Overall a real winner at a great price.

      YOU WON'T BELIEVE HOW LIGHT THIS IS!
      I got this to replace my old step ladder that bit the dust. Wow! This ladder is so nice. It is super light weight and easy to maneuver around. It folds up and down smoothly and easily. It also locks into place to make me feel safe. The top step is more like a platform. It is a little larger than 12x12 and has grippers in the plastic surface. I also like that the utility tray has several different size trays and slots to hold your tools/ materials while you are up there. Bonus, it folds flat. Just over 3 in. so it doesn't take up much space when storing it.

      Great Step Stool Ladder
      Gorilla did a Great Job designing this ladder. Very lightweight and Sturdy. Easy to open up and locks open. A simple lever to release and fold back up. You can easily cut in ceilings from the second step. The fold down clip is nice for holding a paint can. I think it will hold a person over 225 pounds, as it is very Heavy Duty for a light Step Stool Ladder.

      Must have step stool upgrade!
      This ladder is much more solid and useful than a typical step stool – but weighs about the same. Its light weight and easily carried, but well-built and able to carry 225 pounds. It fold and unfolds very easily and features three steps with the top step a podium platform that greatly improves the working efficiency of this ladder. The podium is set at 2 feet 6 inches above the ground, providing an overall reach of about 9 feet. The top edge of the ladder provides a surface to lean on when working from the podium, and has built in tool storage, a small shelf, and a fold down hook. It stores with ease as it measures 3.25 inches when closed. This is a very versatile ladder to use around the house. It came in very handy when decorating Christmas trees, as its small footprint and light weight made moving it around very easy. Podium provdes greater working stability - a huge plus for the entire family. It's a must have replacement for the old step stool.

      Useful Stool
      This is a great little step stool. I say little, but you actually can get as high as you would on a smaller ladder and with great stability. It's lightweight and easy to open and fold shut. It is convenient to store as it folds quite flat.It has a wide enough base that you feel secure when standing on it, but it's not so bulky as to make it inconvenient to get into tighter spaces.It's a handy stool to have whether you're changing lightbulbs, painting and cutting in at the ceiling or dusting.

      Inspires Confidence in High Places
      This is a great utility step ladder. Well-designed to inspire confidence to reach 9’ up. I really like the fact that the top "stabilizer" bar located above the top step, provides a subtle resting place for your knees to touch to give the assurance that you are not about to reach too far in front of you causing you to lose your balance (see picture). This is a simple, but well thought-out design that seems to be missing in some other step ladders. When extended, the ladder has a positive latching locking mechanism that prevents accidental fold-up – it clicks into place when the ladder is extended, and must be pressed inward to retract the ladder (see picture). The lightweight aluminum construction is a REAL relief when hauling the ladder around the house, or up the stairs. I have a smaller two-step ladder that weighs twice as much as this one, and never realized just how much of a disincentive that was to getting my chores done, until I picked up this featherweight ladder – it has twice the reach, but less than half the weight of my smaller ladder – and feels very sturdy -- love it! This ladder has some small, but welcome built-in features in the top bar that is easily reached from any step, including holes to fit screwdrivers, a hammer and paint brush, and a small tray to place little fasteners. There is also a small “flip out” yellow clip that when open, provides a small hook to hang things from (see picture). There are two 3” deep aluminum steps, and the top plastic step, which at 12” deep x 13.5” wide is more than sufficient to turn around. The rubber feet on the four legs were perfect to minimize any slippage on our wood floors, and protected my floors from getting scratched. It is a slender ladder (about 3-1/2” wide when folded – see picture) that can be stored in small areas, such as between the washer/dryer in the utility room (which is where I store mine) or next to appliances or in a utility closet where it will take up very little space. This is a really nice product, and for me it was a good replacement for an older, heavier ladder that has seen better times. I would recommend this ladder to any homeowner or handyman looking to make their life a little easier.

      Light Weight, Stable & Sturdy
      This Gorilla Ladders step stool is very light; yet sturdy and stable. It has a total weight of 7 lbs and a shipping weight of 11 lbs including the shipping box. It arrived well packed and in perfect condition. The large top platform being 2 ft 6 in from the floor gives the user a 9 ft or more reach. It stores flat and is easy to set up and take down. I find the tray to be handy and well thought out. It has a fold down plastic hook for paint cans and stable non marking rubber feet. I have included some photos and a short demo video to help show some of the features. It has a limited lifetime warranty.

      So light to more around.
      For as sturdy as this step ladder is, it is super light. The aluminum construction makes it so easy to move around. The top step is oversized for a safer platform to stand and work off of. There is a tray to hold tools, hardware or painting items. There's also a hook latch that you can hang a gallon of paint. Love that option. The ladder has a self-locking safety latch for added protection.

      Lightweight, Sturdy, and Compact
      This blows away our old 2 step ladder with the round steel tubing. It is lighter and feels much sturdier. Plus it has the tool caddy for holding a couple of screwdriver, pliers, 2 putty knives and even a cordless drill. There is a flip latch that should be strong enough to hold a gallon of paint. The top step is quite large - 12" x 12". The platform is 2' 6" from the floor. Before you purchase a 3 step ladder be sure you need it. The one downside of a taller ladder is the taller the ladder the further you are away from the wall or cupboard on the lower steps. Figure out how much reach you need and then decide if a 2 step or a 2 step ladder is the right choice. For me this is the perfect choice when I don't need to pull out the larger ladder. At 3.25 inches deep when folded it fits easily behind the laundry room door.

      Overall stellar performer
      I needed a step ladder that was strong enough for a heavier person, yet light enough to be easy to move. Gorilla Ladders answered my prayers! The ladder has a great build to it. It is made with two lower aluminum steps, and a nice, large plastic top step. This ensures good, wide footing for you when using the stool, and an ability to turn around on the top step as well. There is a handle that is easy to grip and hold on to no matter which step you are on. The top step has a simple weighted locking mechanism to prevent the step from lifting up and/or collapsing when you shift your weight. This has happened to me more than once on other stools. Additionally, the top handle bar has lots of hooks and crannies (pun intended) to enable the holding of all sorts of tools and nails while you are on the ladder. And did i mention the weight??! This is without a doubt the lightest step stool I've ever lifted! With a capacity of over 225 lbs, such a light weight stool is truly unprecedented. SUMMARY Incredibly light step ladder with all of the essential features plus many extras. It does not disappoint. Highly recommended!

      Best Product Ever! Ingenious
      I'm the average height for a woman but still constantly need a step ladder and with some projects require a small ladder. What a Brilliant idea Gorilla had by combining the two. Gorilla Ladder is fully assembled, steps are large and wide making it secure. It is very lightweight but strong, substantial and sturdy. It is just the right ladder for all kinds of chores on the inside and outside with a 9 ft reach. Perfect for reaching the top shelf of the pantry, to hanging Christmas lights, cleaning, painting, the uses are endless. The top handle is a small shelf which is going to come in handy. It consists of holes for tools, a hook for hanging and tray for supplies. Easy to store while using only 3.25" depth of space. Truly One of My Favorite Things!

      Very versatile, light weight ladder
      This is a great small ladder to have around. I have found it helpful with getting on top of my cabinets to water plants, and have even been able to reach the ceiling to touch up paint! What makes this ladder nice is the light weight of it, yet it is very sturdy. It also has several spots to stash tools during projects so you don't have to climb up and down to get another tool. There is also a small hook which I found was good for small paint cans.
