  • Not bad, but....

    Pros:  the basic ladder does the job it's designed to do, price
    Cons:  poor instructions, no handrail, no trapdoor holder for bottom rung

    "I bought this loft ladder to replace the somewhat more substantial one that came with the house we purchased new in 1986. I didn't therefore need the hinges and latch items for the trapdoor that came with it. As an irregular DIYer, I found the instructions for ladder construction poor; it referred to a 'plain black stop' which was, in fact, red! Also, it supplied 10 x 25 screws for securing the two plastic ladder pivots to the joist when each pivot had 6+1 holes, ie requiring a total of 14 screws. At its relatively cheap price, this ladder had neither a hand rail nor the option to hoist the ladder up toward the loft then attach the bottom end to the inside of the trap door - so much easier to store away/retrieve the ladder. I managed to fit my old hand rail to the new ladder and screwed an aluminium double hook bracket (the type used for hanging gardening tools) to the door that neatly holds the bottom ladder rung. This means I don't have to store/use the 4-footish armature supplied (but not referred to anywhere in the instructions/parts list). I would recommend the manufacture sell the trapdoor kit separately, possibly ditch the armature, and replace with a handrail and a trapdoor attachment to hold the ladder bottom neatly. Once installed, it does the job."

    "Recently moved to a smaller house with too much stuff. Solution? Buy a loft ladder and lay a floor in the loft. The ladder is excellent value and the foot treads are good, wide enough to go up and down the ladder easily and comfortably. Reasonably easy to put together and though I didn't use them, the ladder also had fixings to put on the loft trap door to make it easier to open and close. Very pleased with purchase, thank you."

  • Difficult to put back up

    Pros:  price
    Cons:  flimsy pole

    "The quality was OK for the price, though the hinges wouild be better if they were metal rather than plastic. I didn't use the loft catch as it is obtrusive so I bought the more normal hidden, push type catch for £1.99. It was easy enough to install with common sense as the instructions are poor. My real complaint about this product is the flimsy pole that comes with it. It is fine for pulling the ladder down but totally inadequate for putting it back up. The problem is that with a 2 section ladder it is very difficult to push it up when the pole attaches to one side rather than the middle. This might work if the pole was more substantial.I had to make my own pole that I can attach to the middle of the bottom rung."

    Pros:  easy to install
    Cons:  rubbish instructions and diagrams

    "Very easy to install once you have deciphered the instructions.the fixing screws need to be longer if you have a chipboard floor in the loft."
