Rated 5 out of 5 by from It feels very secure and is very well-made. Like others have said, it's worth taking a bit of time to get used to how it works, and then before climbing, check that the catches are securely in place. I got this ladder to clean out the guttering on a conservatory roof, and it's a lot easier than the very light extension ladder I currently have, because you can walk along it - so you don't have to continually move it about or risk leaning too far to the side. You can also put a bucket on the platform and as long as you are careful, it's very safe. Good height when used as a single ladder too. A really excellent purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I agree with all the positive comments but one word of caution: it is important for the join between the two thin steel platforms to be over one of the struts of the ladder otherwise the join comes apart when you tread on it. Unfortunately the panels are about 1 cm longer than they need to be for them to clip into place and automatically ensure such alignment. I solved the problem by using 6 cable ties through the holes in the panel and around the struts, which is fine for me because I mainly want to use it as a platform, but it would be preferable if the manufacturer got it right in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When folded up this ladder has a small footprint and stands at around meter high. It is compact and easy to store. I have found that It is very sturdy in all of the configurations possible. The joints of the ladder are very well engineered and are strong enough to have complete confidence when used as a platform. The steel planks for use when in platform configuration are brilliant and the fact that they are included at this price is amazing since another similar ladder I looked at cost twice as much and didn't have them. The ladder is fairly heavy when changing configurations but resting on its side on the floor gets around this with little fuss. I have used this many times and am very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Although mostly well constructed I found the following problems and will be returning the item. Platform insecure ?????? If the instructions are followed the platform can move laterally by up to 10mm and side to side by a few mm. Assembled Legs leave gap to ladder which causes instability, the ladder rotating slightly around screws. Lock mechanism is unclear. When apparently locked one side of the tab was part way between locked & unlocked whereas the other side was hard against the locked sign. Is this locked or not? Maplin should publish the warning sheet in the specification as there are an awful lot of these warnings. I wouldn??????t have bought the item if I had seen these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have used this product for 5 months and it is standing up to wear and tear very well. A few points of note though. Be careful to read the instructions before experimenting. I let a section close on my fingers when trying it out with the result that I needed stitches. And the platform configuration is a bit too high for ceiling painting in a normal height room. But it is a ladder that is strong and stable. And it just adapts to a whole range of uses. I have taken mine to Spain and am about to buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received his product within a day of ordering it excellent service. The ladder was perfect for what I wanted and much more. I had only recently been looking for a ladder and this one is much better than a standard ladder, proving excellent with the decorating task I carried out. I would recommend it to anyone, but make sure you follow the instructions, and experiment with it, to get used to it, before you use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently purchased this item after I was informed by a friend after they visited Maplins & thought I would like one of these. I looked online & firstly was amazed at the price of this Multi Ladder compared to others available elsewhere online such as a certain well known bidders site, much more expensive on there & some are not even complete, some are also damaged. Other online retailers sell a similar Ladder & it doesn't contain the Platform Plates as this Maplins one does & are very much more expensive. This product is great & easy to use, the instructions are good but for me it is just common sense when using this item, setting up is very easy & straight forward & can be easily completed by any novice. I am extremely happy with this purchase if there was one gripe it would be that delivery for me when I order from Maplins online delivery always takes around a week from placing my order so if your not in a huge hurry order online or you can go to a local store to collect yourself. I would recommend this product 100% & Maplins too as the item is hard to beat on price, exceptional value all round, very pleased with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't really go out my way to review things unless they are either really bad or exceptionally good. I was just browsing my local store when I spotted this ladder on display. A member of staff kindly demonstrated all the variations how the ladder could be used. On the online description there is not a picture of the ladder in a /\ shape. The ladder can be used as a normal step ladder too by putting it into the /\ shape. It folds up and will fit in most car boots. It fitted very nicely in a Peugeot 407 saloon boot, leaving plenty of room for other things. I purchased this ladder when it was on offer. If you are into DIY or just for general home maintenance, this ladder is FANTASTIC! I cannot express how good it is. You can store it once it's folded in the cupboard under the stairs. It is very sturdy and felt safe when I used it. Buy one, you won't regret it.

When I bought this product from your Eastbourne store it was standing outside in the rain so that the instruction leaftet was soaked and virtually pulp. Is it possible for you either to send me a replacement or a pdf download of the instructions?

How wide are the stabiliser bars?(That size isn't in the specs).Also 2 other people have asked how/if this ladder can be used on stairs & you haven't answered, even though the description says it can!Maplin's video also fails to show this,so can it? Pic3?

Asked by: markpd_e46
The width of the stabiliser bars is 63cm The ladder can be used on stairs but as different stairways are different shapes and sizes it would be down to the user to determine the correct configuration to suit the particular usage intended. There is a wealth of instructional videos available on the internet that show the various combinations this type of ladder can be used in and the type of task typically attributed to that particular shape.

How do you use this as a stair ladder

Asked by: Marymac
The ladders can be used in a variety of configurations and shapes. How and where you utilise them is your choice but I would always recommend you work safely. If you are unsure of the correct operation in any given environment or usage then I would advise using a web browser to search for one of the many explanatory videos available online, these not only highlight the versatility of these types of ladders but give examples of usage for certain tasks and explain safe operation whilst executing those tasks.

What is the extended height of the ladder when it is extended to 3 sections and the 4th section is being used in the stand-off position?

Asked by: Edward44
The 3 sections would measure 2.67m however the overall height would be determined by the angle used for the final extended section and the angle of incidence of the ladder to the wall.
