Absolutely, and very comfortably as well.

are the steps made of slip proof material

Asked by steps May 11, 2020

Answers

it is not slippery proof. there are little grooves formed into each step; however, each step is bare aluminium, so wear rubber soled shoes....it is a fantastic versatile ladder. I have two- when I go kayaking, I stand on one, a person stands on the other and we lift the kayak onto the auto.

Base of the ladder is 20 3/4" (step side including foot pads), base of ladder 20 1/2" (back side including foot pads), base ladder open spacing is 30 3/4" including foot pads. This is a really nice ladder, I bought it for work but I like it so much that I am going to buy one for my home.

I love this ladder. I needed it for cutting in while painting bedrooms in my house and it is perfect. It’s lightweight and easy to move/maneuver. There’s enough space on the step to stand comfortably and it doesn’t hurt your feet. 10/10 recommend. I even went as far to say it’s one of the best purchases I’ve made in the last 5 years.

Great ladder for ladies
I'm a 70 year old DIYer who is not as steady on my feet as I used to be. I have some ceilings and light fixtures I need to work on, and a screen to replace that is high up. My step stool was no longer safe for me to use. I bought this today and absolutely love it. It is light, compact with WIDE steps. The tray that opens up at the top is very convenient and I can get my DIY jobs done without worrying about falling. And the price is good!

I love this ladder. I had an old style wooden ladder and fell when coming down off my kitchen ladder, changing over cabinet light bulbs. Lost confidence. I got new light-weight gorilla ladder and the top step is almost even with counter top. Confidence restored.. along with light in kitchen. The ladder has a folded profile of 4” so it easily fits into my small utility closet at my condo. So glad I bought this ladder...

Very sturdy and stable step ladder. I weight 230 and it didn't wobble a bit. The second step's height of 22 3/4 inches is perfect for cutting paint in at the top of an 8 foot wall (see photo). The third step's height of 34 inches is perfect for cutting paint in at the top of a 9 foot wall. This combination of price and performance make this ladder an excellent value.

I like this ladder because it’s convenient and lightweight. I’m a drywall Finisher and this ladder is ideal for patchwork. Easily carry it around with one hand. It’s tough and durable as well.

This is a great product! Light weight and easy stow. This three step ladder is super convenient. When folded, it can virtually fit in any closet or behind a door thanks to it's slim design. The fliptop tray has slots to hold tools and a bordered section, which can hold up to a one gallon paint can.

Good Ladder but HD is Aweful towards this vendor.
Nearest HD showed 11 in stock, physical inventory was zero. Wasted 35 minutes at the store. Went to a second store that showed 8 in stock, physical inventory was two. However, the two ladders were in bad condition. See photo. I hate that i paid new price for a ladder with Rust.

I love this ladder. It’s so versatile and easy to use. It’s extremely light and can move room to room with ease as it opens and closes easily. Very satisfied overall with both the product and the customer service. I cannot say enough about the kind and helpful staff at the Seekonk MA location.

Not only am I getting more done with this ladder, but I'm getting more done safely and with less neck and shoulder pain since I no longer need to reach so high above my head. This Gorilla ladder is nice and sturdy, yet lightweight enough that I can easily move it around. I've been using it now for a couple of months and especially like that it folds up for easy storage. The bonus extra tray feature is nice and I use it far more often than expected. Although it's small it is designed nicely. It has little shallow pockets for screws and other items. I highly recommend this ladder to anyone who has been using a chair for reaching high spots or who suffers from neck and shoulder pain. The price point is low enough so that you can move to a much safer tool than a chair while eliminating the need for Excedrin and a heating pad after up high projects. Note that my photos include other Home Depot products, including a Black & Decker cordless drill, Rustoleum white satin spray paint and a Hunter ceiling fan. And for wiener dog lovers there's a bag in the background featuring a design from TheSmootheStore.com
