Rated 5 out of 5Â by Theclockman Brilliant!
I bought this ladder to help me clean a caravan. The folding sections made life a lot easier. The hight of the caravan was 3 sections high. so I folded down the fourth section so I could reach across the roof without it getting in the way. then converted into a platform to do the sides. and then into the A frame to reach the top of the front. It saved a lot of work and time. and at all times I felt stable and safe with the extended feet. Well worth buying. I'm sure I'll be using it for a lot more things in the years to come.

Very solidly made and vesatile product, my only wish is that I had paid the Â£20 extra for the same product including platform which is also available at Screwfix (see product code 25781) which I think would be worth the little extra.

Very versatile, exactly what was needed for high access, safe and stable. Using as a platform was really useful too, and in hindsight, should have bought the model with the planks to go on top.

Bought this for painting, and it did the job...just.
Firstly, the out-rigger feet are great at being non-slip. The ladder feels secure when you're clambering over it. The problem is the out-riggers are often too wide to get the ladder in the space you want to use it in (e.g. a staircase). They add an extra 8" (200mm) EACH SIDE. The outriggers can't be removed quickly, and even if you do, the ends of the ladder have C-section cutouts which then make the ladder really unstable.
Second problem is the square-section rungs. They're uncomfortable for standing on for long periods of time, and there's no reason why there can't be slanted (flat) rungs which can also accommodate a platform.
The last problem is the bolts connecting the outriggers to the ladder. They're cheap and nasty bolts, and if you transport the ladder around, you'll be taking them off and on a lot.
For the price, I expected a bit better build quality than what you get. Having said that, the clips for adjusting the hinges are sturdy and easily show whether its locked or not.
