        I'm short so sometimes even a 2-step stool is not enough for me to reach things. When I saw this 3-step stool on HD's website, I knew I had to have it! So glad I ordered it. It's very sturdy, relatively light, and takes hardly any room for storage. I no longer have to ask for help to get things down! Each step is nice and wide so i feel completely safe standing on it. Love it!

        Sturdy and Secure
        This step ladder has been a great addition to my wife's classroom. Since she is pregnant, I didn't feel comfortable with her climbing on chairs and desks to reach or hang things. I took this ladder up to her during post planning and used it to help hang some decorations. The ladder is easy to unfold. It has a heavy and sturdy feel but it is also easy to manipulate and move to where you need it. The legs of the ladder have rubber caps that prevent it from slipping. I felt secure and steady standing on the top step. When folded, the ladder is easy to store behind the door.

        Great task ladder
        This is a great ultra-lightweight task ladder. It weighs less than my belt, and operates easily with one hand (fold in / out). The steps have ribs on them, which is great when your shoes are gritty / dirty. The top step is a large flat square, and also serves as the brace when using as an a-frame ladder. This is also shaped so that it is functional as a lean-to ladder as well. The feet are coated in plastic, which makes it acceptable to use in a finished area. This is a light-duty ladder, so it is not meant to be used as a load bearing ladder, like when framing. It is great as a task ladder, for painting, finishing, cleaning, changing bulbs / light fixtures, etc.. It is light enough that I can hold the whole ladder in the air with the furthest joint of my pinky, and not strain to do so. The top black plastic part is small, about 4.5" deep. It has molding that looks like it is shaped to fit a paint can, however because it is so narrow I am too nervous to try this out. Paint is expensive, and cleaning paint is very time consuming. The top plastic brace does have a hole for a hammer, and can hold a couple of small things, but it is much narrower than a typical fiberglass top step. Something to note, is that the support front feet are small, and have a small footprint. When using on unstable ground (mud, unpacked dirt, loose gravel, etc.) IT WILL SINK! Be prepared for it. Expect it. The feet are small to accommodate the small and light form factor, so it has limitations. I used this ladder painting my neighbor's house, and it was incredibly easy to move this ladder around while taping and papering, as I never had to put down my masker to move the ladder, and also worked well while spraying, even with a 36" airless extension, never needing to put the gun down. A great light ladder. Overall, a thoroughly impressive, light duty, light-weight and small form factor ladder that takes up very little space. The extra fourth step gives it extra reach that most ladders in this form factor do not have.

        Great multi-use ladder
        This ladder is lightweight and easy to move around the home. It could be used indoors or outside for general tasks. It only has a 250 pound rating, which classifies it as a lighter weight ladder. Although the ladder has 4 steps, it is only recommended to use 3 steps for safety. There is a nice rack at the top of the ladder for storage of tools, a paint can or other objects needed while working. The ladder does have nice rubber feet and is moderately sturdy for general usage. I would recommend this ladder for someone who cannot manage a heavier ladder or who has only light projects around the home. It is very easy to move around when painting a room or for reaching into taller cabinets.

        The 225 lb. Load Capacity step stool fits in a tight spot!
        This is a Rubbermaid 3-step stool. I has a weight capacity of 225 lb. and is made of steel and plastic. There is a safety grip on the top handle and the plastic feet will not scratch the floor. It has a self locking feature so I know it won't close up on me as I start to climb or as I move about while standing on it. It closes easily with the finger release lock and folds up compactly to fit between my dryer and the wall. Overall, I am pleased with this step stool and would purchase again. The price seems about right when compared to other shorter stools offered.
