One Ladder Does It All
Handiest step ladder you ever saw is the "do everything" Little Giant. It can be adjusted on either leg to stand level on stairways or sloping ground. What's more, it can also be used as a lean-to extension ladder which extends up to four times its original transport size.
The Little Giant folds down to 5 ft., 7 in., for storage or transit, and can be used in four basic ways, according to the manufacturer:
1. It can be used as a step ladder, extending from 5 ft., 4 in., with five rungs, to 9 ft., 3 in. with nine rungs.
2. As a step ladder, it can be used on staircases or sloping ground since both sides of the ladder are telescopic.
3. It can be used as a lean-to extension ladder.
4. The versatile ladder can also be separated into two trestles to provide a scaffolding base.
The Little Giant sells for about $270. Smaller models (3 ft., 7 in. and 4 ft., 7 in., when folded) sell for $200 and $230.
