I have often thought about one of these but where do you keep it? You could keep it in a place where you cant get to it because of fire.

We had a house fire years ago and had an escape plan in place( or so I thought)
I got the kids out of bed and threw some clothes on when I turned round the kids were back in bed so nothing went according to plan.Thankfully we all got out.
I have thought about one of these but wonder if it is not within easy reach whether your brain would be calm enough to find it and throw it out.

There were interesting comments on this last time it was posted - including one from a fireman I think, who advised against them. I have a thing about fire after our tent caught fire when I was 6 so I would have snapped one of these up but the feedback put me off - along with having velux windows upstairs so the window sills are too wide!

One of the comments last time was along the lines of "if you have decent smoke alarms you should be able to get out in time". We have 4 smoke alarms around the house so should (if smoke acts anything like toast as that sets 2 of them off!) get plenty of warning.

However, if someone were to pour a flamable liquid through our letter box and set our front door on fire, not only would this exit be blocked but we also wouldn't be able to get down stairs as they lead straight to the fire; we'd be trapped upstairs. I've bought one of these ladders and it's stored on top of a book case on the landing between our four bedrooms. The way I see it is that I'd rather have it and hope I never, ever need to use it rather than regret it later on.

OK if you buy one of these try it out in daylight, and clime up first and see how confident you and the family are about using it.

Mmmmm point taken BUT it is for emergency use and I guess if you want to get out fast you might just rather risk this than jump?

Great discussion points lads...

At this price, ordered one (just in case), I also hope I never actually use it

WTF OK wait till there’s a FIRE or test it first so you will know what to expect in an emergency.

You could be trusting your family’s lives to this, so you better make SURE you know what you are doing.

If a child had a practice climb with the ladder and was scared then it could cause more problems when there is a fire as they would be even more frightened. Just tell them its perfectly safe.
I would rather try something i wasnt sure about than something that i was sure i couldnt do.

Fair point, that’s why I said clime up even just a few rungs so at least you know what to expect.

Would still rather not know
