Hot, ordered thanks
Hot from me too, and ordered. Thanks.
Then realised that the missus will therefore expect me to crack on with the DIY......DAMN!!

BTW, don't forget the quidco. @ 7% IIRC.
Quidco does not apply to Reserve and collect I believe

Does this go in to a 'A' frame?

Yes.

Bought one of these a long time ago for only £10 more from Woolworths, such a versatile ladder that doesn't take up much space when folded. Have some hot stuff!

Is this any good for cleaning upstairs windows (just sacked window-cleaner) as when its extended it doesn't look adjustable?
Magic, missed this last time aswell! Heat added!

Hot but I'm leaving this here anyway:Ladder on shopping channel



arrrrhahahahaha
Not adjustable when extended but it is a fantastic ladder option to have available. Very sturdy and has a proper mechanism that locks rather than the crazy one on the QVC video posted earlier.

The catches for the locks automatically click into place and have a pull catch that has to be released on both sides each time you vary the angle of the joint, difficult to expplain but is genuinely very safe.

I have a lean-to down one side of my house, and not enough room for a straight ladder to reach the upper floor due to next doors wall. Can I use this bent halfway, to kinda go over it? Or should it be used straight?

Probably a silly question, but as a lifelong renter I've only just started having to do my own DIY!

YES...There are loads of different folding positions for this ladder

One Safety Comment...If using the Platforms Check under to see if the clips which attach to the ladder rungs are fully engaged, mine bend up over time & use, and I fell through...Painful!!
ALTHOUGH QUIDCO MENTIONS THE £3 & £7 DISCOUNT CODES WHICH I HAVE ON MY ACCOUNT, MAPLIN STATES THEY ARE NOT VALID ON THIS OR OTHER PRODUCTS LISTED IN THE PROMO EMAIL SENT TO ME. IT IS NOT MADE CLEAR IF THE 7% QUIDCO CASHBACK WOULD BE DECLINED !
Are these branded as Maplins own make?

I've seen similar styles made by Abru, and I bought a pair made by Youngman from Costco recently for under £50. The ones I have are great versatile ladders.

Don't bank on getting the flat metal platforms that appear in Mr_tight_arse's photos though, as I didn't.

If these are the same quality as Youngman and Abru, they are well worth £40.


Just reserved thanks

Cheers for that, I shall order a set (and be careful of the platforms!)

Great deal, thanks
Argh damn, got a 4.75m multi purpose ladder for £59.99 last week, could have saved £20 getting this smaller one!

Order description does say "N74KA 4x3 Stepladder+Plank", though.
Thanks, just ordered one (_;)
£2.33 tracked on my qudico for these purchased 2weeks ago!

Yes, and when you put it in your basket, the order quite clearly states 'Stepladder & Plank'.
Hot! Just dont do this...

These planks or platforms weren't an option with the Abru or Youngman ones.

I'd still like to know who's brandname is on these Maplin ones?

I got them the last time Maplins had this offer
If only this was 4.7m in length...I have high windows which this won't reach
I've got one of this from Costco (without platform) and it is great. Any ideas where to buy a matching platform ?
i have one and it's big and weighs a fair bit. i found it to high for decorating my bedroom though. if you have a small house, set it up outside as it's cumbersome.
