A great deal, but it's just so upsetting that the picture reminds me of my step ladder... I never knew my real ladder!

Damn, just bought and fitted the toolstation ladder few days ago
With this hot on the heals of the Toolstation deal it looks like the loft ladder wars are really hotting up.

Each has its ups and downs, this one has no handrail, but is cheaper
JohnnyUtah07/01/2020 21:15

You have lofty expectations of me


You pulled that out of the air and allowed us to climb up and see what other puns you have stored up there.
Hope you all get one before the price climbs back up
Never EVER Trust Ladders!! Theres ALWAYS upto something
The two section option at a tenner cheaper would be fine for most people I expect.
(Min-Max. Floor to Ceiling Height: 2.13-2.69m)
You could use that saved tenner to buy three tubs of reduced sweeties that the supermarkets had over-ordered in December.
I was thinking of buying one but my Computer became Frozen so I had to..... Ladder Go Ladder Go

I always send the missus up in the loft to put the Christmas decorations away.

This year she complained at getting a ladder in her tights.

I said I wondered what that clunking noise was!!
I'd buy as I boarded out my loft over the weekend and it would be useful now. However my loft hatch doesn't fold down, it needs to be pushed up and taken down, so I need a regular ladder to do that anyway.

Heat added for those with hinged outwards loft hatches though!

Buy a fold down loft hatch. Simple to fit and problem solved
2 piece one is a new product and is only £39.99, direct swap for mine which is a bit old and falling apart! (rivets falling out needing bolts to fix, and it now jumps out at you when you open the door, a bit like Home Alone)
I'd always go for a 2 section if possible, I've got a 2 section to my loft which is far superior to use than the 3 section one which is in a relative's loft.
I’ve got a plastic pull down hatch and have to take my step ladders up to get into the loft.

Would I be ok with a deal like this and attach to the timber in the loft? Reason I ask is that the load of the ladders will obviously be on top of current “insulation” and pulling it down I’m assuming id need a pole and hook?
I have a short step ladder and do gymnastics to get into my loft.....
Good price and that ladder is ok. I bought one about 2 months ago and tried to fit it this weekend. It wasn’t until I’d screwed it in place and tried to extend it that I realised the bottom section was bent. It’s so lightweight bending it back to a useable position wasn’t difficult it just doesn’t slide easily.

i would take it back but can’t be bothered to unscrew it now it’s in place.

if you buy one check it’s not deformed before installing. Also if you’re inclined to eat too many pies I’d buy something more solid.

If it bends that easily I wouldn't buy it.
The 2 section one that I've used for 20 years wouldn't bend without extreme force so I'd definitely give this one a wide berth.
I have one of these, they're acceptable but I wouldn't buy this particular one again. It's pretty cheap feeling and flexes a fair bit in use. I think it's probably spending a bit more.

These types of ladders must be securely attached to wood and more than a single joist, some sort of wood spanning the gaps should work. From memory the instructions state hardwood and not manufactured particle board (used in loft boards).
These are more expensive but MUCH nicer to use than telescopic aluminium jobbies where you need a pole etc:

Why don't you need a pole for these wooden ones?
You must reach up and unfold them, on mine anyway. I suppose it depends how tall you are and how high you're ceiling - there's no catch to release them though.

But how to you bring the door down, from a closed position, without a pole? I can't reach the ceiling.
I have a kind of long eye-bolt that you screw into a small discrete hole which, when you pull on it, unlocks the latch and it falls down. It's only as long as you need it to be - mine is less than seven inches and lives in a drawer.

The wooden folding ladders are attached to the back of the hatch so when they fall down they are there to grab easily - another huge benefit is they don't take any usuable loft space - they only take up the footprint of the hatch where you couldn't store anything anyway.

They can also be walked up in bare feet without absolutely creasing your feet like the aluminium ones do.
Is the wooden one quieter than the metal ones? My metal one creaks a lot when climbing up or down.
