Rated 5 out of 5Â by DJBSPARKS Fit for purpose
Some products shift emphisis form the intented purpose to bells and whisles,
however this product keeps the focus
on what it needs to do, I like it that way!
Strong enough, fold down for mobility,
safe locks etc, just what the tradesman

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bangalore Very useful platform
Very glad I bought this ladder platform which has been great for medium height work and it is light and folds up easily for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dustyk Well made hop up
At the time I bought this it was one of the lowest priced hop ups. This is not reflected in its quality - that is first rate. All the parts are strong, well made and assembled properly. If I was being picky I would say the locking strips are a bit too stiff to turn out of the way, but they will probably ease with use. They can be moved with one hand, so not much of an issue. And there is no risk of them jumping off the locking pin! The robust rubbery feet are riveted onto the aluminium legs; so they should not mysteriously disappear. The steel hinges are well fixed and their pivot bolts are held on with self locking nuts - again they should not disappear and can be adjusted to give just the right amount of stiffness - easy to open and close, but keep shut when moving and storing.
All legs, braces, steps and the platform itself are aluminium - the whole thing is light enough to pick up with one finger, yet it can support 150kg. All rivets look strong and are well formed. The instructions give dozens of things you can and cannot do - all very sensible, but they do not mention using two platforms with a strong board between... This is my second hop up of this make - the first one shows no sign of deterioration after several years. The platform height (480mm) means anyone under 6feet tall will not bump their head on a 2.3m ceiling.
