I have one of these and can recommend them. Handy to have around the house

Syzable


wish I could extend mine that quick

Also the 3.75m one has £50 off, down from £129.99 to £79.99

i saw a workman with one of these and fell in love with them, but can't justify spending that much on a set of ladders. they are the t*ts heat added

make it up to £50 and get £5 off
code AWINDIS5

These things give me the fear. I couldn't use this type of ladder.

Great deal. Thanks.

You fell in love with a workman because of his extendible ladder?

i don't suppose anyone knows how much and where you can get a cheaper pair of ladders for very infrequent roof access through a loft style hatch? i guess i need something about 3 metres high. something like this would be ideal as i can put it away afterwards (i don't have much space for storace), but £50 is maybe a bit much to pay. it's just so i can adjust the tv ariel if the window or birds move it. my current A style ladders are just a foot or two too short for me. if i was a couple of foot taller they would be fine, but no matter how much i eat, i don't grow in that direction

Like the look of this. Good find!

If I didn't already have a combination ladder I'd be all over that.

heat added

Good price. We bought this in June when it was £59.99 (£54.99 with voucher) and it has been worth every penny. No more carrying ladders through the house, and no bodge job DIY required from me to fit a loft ladder :-)

He'll be telling us next he was a Plumber....nod nod wink wink.....dodgy sites alert........oO

I have one of these, they are fantastic.

These are extremely handy for reaching top windows, etc. While they are quite heavy, they are much less cumbersome that 2 or 3-section ladders (and much easier to get home from the shop).

Great deal, thanks for posting! My husband was actually after the longer variety (3.75m) which Maplin also have for £79.99, minus a £7 discount code (AWINDIS6), plus TCB at 7.07% making it come in at just under 70 quid so he is very happy

Add this item to your order to take just over £50, then use the code code AWINDIS5 provided by Peterdarlison above

How solid are these ladders Do they have much flex when in use?

But the way I suggested it will only cost you £45 and you just need to pick it up or have it delivered
On Ebay its £49.99 and for those that don't have an Ebay account

Did that ladder just move by itself or have I been smoking those magic mushrooms again?

Due to the tubular design they are very stable and not much flex at all.

Yes. You can choose how many sections to extend.

You need a ladder to get home from the shop oO

Or click "reply" on the comment you're actually replying to?

I wonder what the quality of these is like? Never really impressed with Maplin stuff, and ladders are potentially pretty dangerous.

Telescopics are also notoriously time-consuming to put up and collapse (and equally notorious for damaging fingers) - better alternatives, perhaps?

Great deal thanks
