New Fold Out Ladder Breaks Down For Travel
Anyone who's ever carried a step ladder up the side of a building or bin will appreciate this latest new invention from Sweden a step ladder that folds down into a compact bundle which fits easily under your arm.
The aluminum and steel "Stretch 'N Step", imported by B & W Sales & Marketing Associates, Forest Park, Ga., comes in four lengths from 6 1/2 to 12 1/2 ft. and is designed to replace step ladders. When folded, the 10 1/2-ft. ladder makes a bundle just 14 by 18 by 20 in. in size and weighing only 23 lbs.
The ladder expands on scissor-like sections along each side. The sections are so well balanced that you can easily set the ladder up with one arm, locking the two levers on its side to hold it in rigid position with your free hand. To lower the ladder for transport, simply flip the two levers back and it'll settle down into a bundle at your feet.
The ladders are made from hardened aluminum with steel rivets and steel steps. Two rollers at the top prevent damage to walls; anti-slip pads on the bottom provide a secure base.
"It's designed for constant use by contractors, or occasional use by farmers, homeowners and others. It'll fit easily in the trunk of a car so you don't need to have a truck to haul it around and it can't be beat for getting into tight spots," says Bob Black, of B & W Sales.
The 10 1/2-ft. Stretch 'N Step ladder sells for $229.
