RE: Rubbermaid 3-Step Aluminum Step Stool with 225 lb. Load Capacity Type II Duty Rating.
I'm always needing something like this to reach the upper cabinets.
This appears to be well constructed. It's made from lightweight aluminum and has a weight capacity of 225-pounds. I weight 225 pounds and it felt very sturdy under my weight.
I definitely recommend it.
This is made with high quality. It is lightweight aluminum. There is a handy tool organizer at the top so tools are within easy reach. There are rubber covers on the feet so it is easy to slide without scratching your floor. The first step is 9" off the ground. That step measures 3" deep by 15" wide, made from aluminum. The second step is 18" off the floor and measures 12" by 13". It is hard plastic. The maximum load is 225 lbs. it will store easily in about about a 3-1/2"-4" wide space. Folded up it measures 40" tall. Great for use in the utility room or the kitchen to reach back into those tall cabinets.
Nice Design, Durable, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy
When this step stool arrived, I was surprised to find how light it was for its size. I have other collapsible step stools that are lower in height but they are much heavier than this one. Since the step stool is 4 ft, I prefer to use this rather than the 6' ladder for everyday tasks; even though I'll still need to use the latter for taller applications, this 3 step stool is much easier to transport and takes less space to store.
It also has a utility hook and a small tray at the top for keeping items readily available as needed; I've would have preferred to have a larger tray to hold more items.

The product is lightweight and easy to use. The latch that locks the top step in place is cheap and poorly designed. I ordered a replacement thinking the first one was damaged. Second one came exactly the same where the screw can't be tightened on the back making the product feel unstable or that it might in time come undone where the latch holds the top of the step stool in place. I have an older model of the same product and it was designed much better. Save your money or wait til another version is available.
This is a great all around ladder for working up to 8' high. The durable alluminum structure makes it light weight and easy to move around. It has rubber feet so it won't mar a floor and also helps to keep the ladder from slipping. The top has a tool tray with different sizes for different items. Screw driver holes, hammer hole, could even put a paint brush in the hole. It also has a clip that you can lower and then be able to hang a paint bucket from. Just a great all around ladder

This step stool is very sturdy and stabile for its light weight. It is much easier to use and haul around then a bulky wood step ladder. I was surprised how sturdy and light weight this step stool is in comparison to a wood step ladder while it easily supports my ~200 pound weight.
This step stool appears to be constructed well with aluminum extrusions that are secured with screws and rivets. The manufacturer provides the user manual under the second step and has safety warnings on the outer side rails.
The top tool tray on this step stool is very handy to hold various tools for working on a project. The center of the top tool tray is approximately 7" x 2" in size and has a built in magnet under the tray to help keep small tools and hardware secure while working on a project. There are 4 holes in the top tool tray approximately 1/2" in diameter that are perfect for holding screwdrivers, nut-drivers and other similar tools. There is also one large hole on the top tool tray approximately 1-7/8" in diameter that is convenient for holding larger tools such as a hammer or a drill. The top tool tray also has a fold down plastic clip that can hold a 1 gallon paint can.
The bottom aluminum steps are approximately 3" in width with grooved threads that are part of aluminum extrusions that help prevent against slipping.
Another nice feature of this step stool is that it easily folds down to approximately 3" in depth which allows it to easily store when not in use by hanging it on a hook in a closet or by placing it under a bed, etc. This step stool climbs to a maximum of 29" in height on the third step which is a sturdy plastic platform. This step stool arrives completely assembled and ready to use out of a cardboard box. I.e. no assembly required.
