Thanks, bargain!

blimey that is cheap, cheers op

Bargain Heated for price, but a ladder 5ft 7" inches tall seems a bit pointless. Might as well stand on the mrs shoulders (_;)

Agreed, cheap as chips, but what use is one that size?

Many a time I've balanced on dining room chairs, upturned buckets et al, as you can't be bothered getting out your large ladders, putting items in loft, watering haning plants, changing lightbulbs...list is endless...

Have some heat, handy size to keep in the storage cupboard.

Pointless imo,can't use them for the loft ect.... be better off with a pair of step ladders than these.

I guess it could be useful but limited because you have to lean it against something to use it.....so no lightbulb or loft usage

Good find, cheers op, ordered

It would be interesting if everyone who purchased posted an instance of when and what they had used it for, presumably they will have some idea of its usefulness at point of purchase. I have to say I'm struggling to think of a situation where I might use it although I did have to paint a very small WC early this year and a step ladder would not fit in the room...guess this would have helped. There you go found a use:)

Great find & heat added

Very cheap, but not sure how much use it will be?

for changing light bulbs (and acting as an improptu stool for sitting opposite my daughter's high chair) I bought these:

lightweight, good quality and fold up neatly

No too bad - if you can ride a unicycle, that is.

good price but will wait for the 2.9m ones to drop in price

I am a dwarf and I think these might come in very handy as my wife is 5' 9" Not sure she will appreciate me leaning a ladder on her to give a kiss though.

perfect for changing outside security bulb, clearing guttering and cleaning windows. Thanks

Sit in my swivel chair, wear a plastic mixing bowl on my head and rest ladder with bottom ends facing away.

I am a railway photographer, and these will be ideal for an extra few feet of height on over bridges, fences and walls that obscure the view. So ordered and heat from me.

I'm a plane spotter and these will be absolutely no use. Big up the railway posse. Choo-choo...

Might be not as universal as stepladder, but will work for me.

Plus I can have extra income for selling tickets

Sorry, lower guttering over ground floor window + garage, not house roof ;-)

£5 cheaper than normal price if you look at the main Maplin site.

These would be fine for putting items in the loft, not for access obviously but fine for placing items near to the hatch.

Replacing lightbulbs - what about wall uplighters, outside security lights.

I wouldn't recommend leaning ladders against glass. Step ladders would be more appropriate.

Thanks

Just ordered, been looking at these for ages.

Even so a step ladder would be better.

Good price... Still looking for a glass hammer and a chocolate fire guard if anyone can point me in the right direction

Do you have the taller one or this one?

Why don't you buy two, set them up in a triangle shape, and then you can change the lightbulb.

10ft or larger would be a useful size for something like this so it could be used to access the loft space. But at this size I can only see 1 or 2 uses rather than it being a useful piece of equipment.

I prefer the 'long weight'.
