What is the max depth of steps? I only have about 5 inches of clearance between bulkhead and floa...

Asked by msol January 23, 2018

Our bulkhead is approx 8 inches deep and the step frame fits just fine. Steps rest several inches from the deck frame leaving plenty of room for ones feet. Fully extended, the steps are on the water approx to a depth of 6 feet.

what size and how many mounting screws do I need to buy to attach this to my dock?

Asked by Heather June 20, 2017

Howdy Heather, There seems to be 8 bolts needed to secure this dock ladder. As for size? This would depend on the foundation you are securing them on such as; wood, cement, composite, or ? Most likely 4 inch stainless steel would work well. happy securing, Coach Dave

The ladder as a whole is excellent! It looks great, easy to use for kids and adults, good grips for hands as you climb. Bit of a bummer doesn’t come with bolts. And yes it’s hard to pull up because it’s filled with water but totally manageable.

Steps do not stay vertical when climbing up making it more difficult. Will have to add additional support board on the side of the dock near top of ladder to try and remedy this problem. From photos, it looks like the 5 step ladder is subtly better designed. Wish I had noticed this difference before I purchased.

Opened at the lake to reveal no hardware (necessary) and no instructions. Would not work correctly without bolts connecting the ladder to the base. Tried to use but the ladder would not hold my wife' body weight (110 lbs) without coming apart. Too far from a hardware store. Will try again next week.

Rating a bit early as not installed yet. But I have an older three step model that has done wonderfully on our commercial dock. I put two blocks to prevent the steps from folding flat onto the dock, they stop at the handrails. The dock is kept clear and a rope allows deployment from the water.

Easy to install and does not get as heat up like metal ladders do in hot weather. Great ladder!
