Questions & Answers


Can you get replacement feet. I had one split and come off

Asked by Ken June 2, 2017

I can't answer this question. I haven't come across this issue. I would say contact the manufacture and I'm sure they would have that available. ( Good Luck. Sorry I couldn't help any further.

How much does the 3 step Gorilla Ladder weigh?

Maybe 25 lbs. but easy to carry

where is this made?

Asked by pop January 1, 2017

It is made in China.

How high a ceiling is this appropriate for?

Asked by California October 19, 2016

The platform (top step) is 2 feet 4 inches. It states that if you are 5 feet 6 inches and have a 12 inch reach. You can easily reach 8 feet 10 inches. I am 6 feet tall and have no issue reaching over 9 feet.

Will the fold out shelf hold a standard gallon bucket of paint securely? It appears the circular molding is too small in diameter?uri

Asked by Jimbo August 23, 2016

Yes. I bought this ladder specifically for painting jobs. It securely holds a gallon bucket of paint.

What's the measurement from the top step to the top of the ladder

Asked by Karlita July 29, 2016

27 inches.

What is the purpose of the yellow utility hook?

Asked by Penelope July 5, 2016

I hang the bale of a trash can (empty paint pail) or a scrub bucket when I'm doing 'keep it neat' work. You might consider using it for any tool which has a lanyard and does not fit elsewhere on the project tray.

The right height and weight.
The right height and weight.
by Handyman
This ladder is ideal for many situations. The stair treads are larger than most making it more comfortable on the feet. The top platform is large enough to hold your feet without them going over the edge far at all. The utility caddy is most convenient for holding a multitude of tools and supplies while you work. It can also be left folded down out of the way when not needed. Ladder folds up easily for vertical storage. This is a sturdy, well designed ladder. A useful tool for most any home or shop.

Five-star Ladder
If you need an everyday ladder for multiple uses around the home - look no further! I love this thing. It folds up so compactly and easily yet it is sturdy and well built. When collapsed it neatly fits away in my small linen closet, but when expanded it provides me just the right height to reach my ceilings, change air filters, clean fan blades, etc. There fold out tray provides a convenient location to quickly and easily set your tools (or whatever you are working with) without having to get off the ladder and go get it. The feet are solid and provide a sturdy footing that keeps the ladder wobble free while using.

Best step ladder I own - perfect for interior projects and maintenance
This is the kind of step ladder I have been looking for. I like these three-step style ladders, but I have wanted one tall enough to work comfortably at ceiling heights with a decent tool tray. This meets both needs. I can easily reach my 8 foot ceilings, to include touching the ceiling with the top of my head while standing on the top platform step. I can touch my 9-foot ceilings, and am able to edge the top of the wall at the ceiling while painting. It's a large ladder. Folded up for storage, it's 61" long. Open, it stands 55," with the top platform step at almost 30" above the floor. It is definitely sturdy and built well. It isn't lightweight like some of the smaller light duty ladders, but I think that should be expected given the weight rating and the working height. The feet on the bottom of the legs are wide. They don't slide around, and they keep the ladder stable. The steps are large enough to be comfortable to stand on - larger than my other, smaller step ladders. The top platform step is large enough that I can turn a full circle with both feet solidly on the step, or work facing any position while on the top step. The tool tray is nice. It is large, has conveniently sized holes for holding different tools and has a magnetic "bowl" in the middle of it to hold fasteners and some small tools. I tried knocking some nails out of the tool tray by hitting the tray and bumping the ladder, but the nails stayed put. The slots in the tray are marked with little pictures for recommended tools to fit there, such as a tape measure, drop cord, air hose, screwdrivers and a scraper. There is a small tab that folds out on the front side of it to hold things such as a bucket or a paint can. It's only made of plastic, so I have been fairly careful with it, but I think it should last...barring the ladder getting knocked over and falling directly on the tray. It's also not a huge tab, so a handle from a can or bucket seems to be about the extent of what will fit on it. The tool tray folds up for storage. If I have to complain about anything, I don't care for the "closing" mechanism on the tool tray. The ladder itself essentially opens and closes one-handed. The tool tray, however, has two brackets - one on each side - that hold it up and lock in place. To close the tool tray, you have to use both hands, pull the brackets out to unlock them and then fold the tray down. It's not really a big deal, but it doesn't jive with the otherwise one-handed operation of the ladder.

A great step-ladder for mobile contractors
This is the greatest step-ladder I have ever used. It is extremely light-weight and easy to transport. The ladder opens up and locks into it's usable position very quickly. A small black handle on the third step keeps it locked open, and is very easy to release and fold back up. The steps are wide and comfortable, and at good height increments. When walking up and down the steps, the ladder does not seem to shake around or sink from weight. The legs have large non-marring feet that make it great for indoor use in lived-in houses. The tool tray is a great extra feature that really puts this step ladder into another realm. It is a lightweight piece of plastic that locks into usable position independent of the ladder legs. This means the tool tray does not have to be opened with the ladder, which helps it fit into tight areas where the tray might get in the way. The people over at Gorilla actually put some thought into the tool tray as well. It is not just a bunch of holes for random sized objects. There are two larger holes, that easily fit hammers, pry bars, or drills. There is a large square bin in the middle with a magnet. I have not tested the magnet, but this bin is plenty large enough for a 5-Pound box of nails/screws. There are several smaller holes for screwdrivers. There is also a tape clip on the sides, and a large tool tray closest to the steps that is around 3 inches deep, so you can leave tools in it and move the ladder around without worrying about items rolling out. I used this ladder to install drywall on the ceiling solo, and get no flex in the steps. I am 225lbs, so I am sure that I hit the weight limit of the ladder. This is a great ladder, and has made my every day carry for my truck. I hope this ladder lasts a long time, and when it does fail, I will definitely get another.

A great step ladder for my DIY chores
I own a big Werner 22 ft ladder which is bulky and needed something lighter for in-house small jobs. So found Gorilla 3 step ladder. I have to say that it is definitely well built with no sharp edges around. It is slim, light but sturdy for sure. I can reach heights around 8-9 feet while standing on the 3rd step which is good enough for any in-house job. The step ladder is very easy to open and fold. I used just one simple touch to fold and stow it. The ladder also has a tray that can hold tools like hammer, screw drivers and small drills. It also has a magnetic place holder for screws. The steps are made of hardened plastic which is good for any electrical work too. The shoes are made of rubber which is added safety as it provides added grid. Overall, it's a quality product which is worth owning for anyone looking to easy, light and durable step ladder.

Just What I Have Been Wanting!
I have several tall ladders, but none are really ideal for doing small jobs in the main part of our house, such as changing bulbs, painting, getting stuff out of upper cabinets, etc. They are great ladders, but they are just too big and cumbersome for many things. This Gorilla 3-Step Steel Pro-Grade Project Ladder With 250 Lb Load Rating was exactly what I needed! First, it is light-weight, yet stoutly built out of steel! It has nice wide steps, so you feel secure as you climb it. It has a great little fold-out tray for holding tools, parts, paint, etc. And best of all, in our crowded house, it folds up into a nice, neat, slim package that we can store between our refrigerator and the wall, so it is not under foot when we don't need it. Now, I can quit using our dining room chairs for a step-ladder! Thanks Gorilla Ladders and Home Depot!

A Step Stool With A Shelf
The 3-step Gorilla ladder is a great addition to my home. I use it in the garage, kitchen and outdoors. I love the built in shelf. It comes in handy for changing light bulbs or changing out light fixtures. Pretty much anything you have to reach up high and need a shelf for assistance so you don't have to climb up and down the ladder to get different tools to complete your task at hand. The steps are durable, slip resistant and extra wide to give you a feeling of security while climbing up and down or standing on them.

Safe and Secure!
The wide steps offer secure footing and maneuverability to work. The platform offers plenty of storage for tools or cleaning supplies. For people who have balance issues, the wide steps remove the fear of falling. My wife has such issues and has never felt secure on a ladder or step stool. This ladder removed those fears and allowed her to access high shelves for cleaning. Also, she was able to carry items up and down the ladder with ease. Great ladder, well made, easy storage.
