Falling from ladder may result in injuries or death.
• This product is rated as light-duty for general household use as per
ANSI-ASC A14.2 standard classification (ladder type III).
• Do not exceed the maximum working load of 200 lbs (90 kg).
• Light duty ladders shall not be used with ladder jacks or scaffold planks, or both.
• Ladders shall not be climbed by more than one person at a time.
• Self-supporting ladders shall not be used as single ladders or in the partially closed position.
• The user shall climb or work with the body near the middle of the step or rung.
• The user shall not step or stand on a ladder top cap or the rear braces.
• The ladder base shall be placed with a secure footing on a firm, level support surface. Ladder levelers may be used to achieve equal rail support on uneven surfaces.
• Devices such as shoes, spurs, spikes, combinations thereof, or similar devices of substantial design should be installed where required for slip resistance and bearing area.
• Ladders shall not be used on ice, snow, or slippery surfaces unless suitable means to prevent slipping are employed.
• Ladders shall not be placed on boxes, barrels, or other unstable bases to obtain additional height.
• Portable ladders are not designed for excessive side loading, and such abuse of the ladder shall be avoided. The ladder shall be kept close to the work. The user shall not overreach, but shall descend and relocate the ladder instead. When using a ladder, the user shall never push or pull unless the ladder is properly secured.
• When ascending or descending the ladder, the user shall face the ladder and maintain a firm hold on the ladder. The user shall not climb onto a ladder from the side, from one ladder to another, or from a swingstage to a ladder, unless the ladder is secured against sideways motion or has been tied to the structure. The user shall not climb a broken or bent ladder.
• Take proper safety measures when ladders are used in areas containing electrical circuits. Avoid contact or possible contact with an energized, uninsulated circuit or conductor in order to avoid electrical shock or short circuit. Metal ladders and wood ladders with side-rail metal reinforcement wires shall not be used where they would come in contact with exposed energized electric wires.
• Keep this ladder away from electric power lines. Be particularly careful when manipulating any ladder around an overhead electrical power line.
• A ladder shall not be used as a brace, skid, lever, guy or gin pole, gangway, platform, scaffold plank, material hoist, or for any other use for which it was not intended. Ladders shall not be erected on scaffolds to gain additional height.
• Ladders and ladder sections, shall not be tied or fastened together to provide a longer length. Ladders and ladder sections shall not have their length increased by other means.
• Ladders shall not be placed in front of doors opening toward the ladder unless the door is blocked open, locked, or guarded.
• The user shall ensure that the stepladder is fully opened, with spreaders locked and all feet contacting a firm level support surface.
• A ladder shall not be relocated while anyone is on it.
• The bracing on the rear rails of stepladders is designed solely for increasing stability and not for climbing.
• Broken or bent ladders shall be marked and taken out of service until they are repaired by a competent mechanic or destroyed in such a manner as to render them useless. The user shall not attempt to repair a defective side rail.
• Ladders, like any tool, must be handled with care and not be subjected to dropping, jarring, or misuse. They are designed for the purpose intended. Therefore, any variation from this purpose constitutes a mishandling of the equipment.
• Ladders should be free of oil, grease, or slippery materials on climbing or gripping surfaces.
• Do not let children climb on or play with the product.
• Regularly examine the product for wear and tear. Stop using the product at first sign of damage or if parts become detached.

Before First Use
Risk of suffocation!
Keep any packaging materials away from children – these materials are a potential source of danger, e.g. suffocation.
• Check the product for transport damages.
• Remove all the packing materials.
• A thorough ladder inspection shall be made when the ladder is originally purchased, received, and put into service.
• The ladder shall be inspected periodically, preferably before each use.
• Working parts and rung/step-to-side rail connections shall be checked.
• Where structural damage or other hazardous defect is found, the ladder shall be taken out of service and either discarded or repaired by a competent mechanic.
• The ladder shall be inspected for side rail dents or bends, or excessively dented rungs. All rung/step-to-side rail connections shall be checked, as well as hardware connections, rivets (for shear), and all other components.
• If ladders are exposed to excessive heat, as in the case of fire, their strength may be reduced. After such exposure the ladder shall be inspected visually for damage and tested for deflection and strength characteristics.
• If ladders are subjected to certain acids or alkali materials, they may experience chemical corrosion and a reduction in strength. Consult a qualified person prior to use.
For regular inspection, the following items shall be taken into account:
• Check that the stiles/legs (uprights) are not bent, bowed, twisted, dented, cracked, corroded or rotten.
• Check that the stiles/legs around the fixing points for other components are in good condition.
• Check that fixings (usually rivets, screws or bolts) are not missing, loose, or corroded.
• Check that rungs/steps are not missing, loose, excessively worn, corroded or damaged.
• Check that the hinges between front and rear sections are not damaged, loose or corroded.
• Check that the locking stays horizontal, back rails and corner braces are not missing, bent, loose, corroded or damaged.
• Check that the rung hooks are not missing, damaged, loose or corroded and engage properly on the; rungs.
• Check that guide brackets are not missing, damaged, loose or corroded and engage properly on the mating stile.
• Check that ladder feet / end caps are not missing, loose, excessively worn, corroded or damaged.
• Check that the entire ladder is free from contaminants (e.G. Dirt, mud, paint, oil or grease).
• Check that locking catches (if fitted) are not damaged or corroded and function correctly.
• Check that the platform (if fitted) has no missing parts or fixings and is not damaged or corroded.
If any of the above checks cannot be fully satisfied, you should NOT use the ladder.
• To clean the product, wipe with a soft, slightly moist cloth.
• Never use corrosive detergents, wire brushes, abrasive scourers, metal or sharp utensils to clean the product.
Proper ladder maintenance ensures the safe condition of the ladder. Repairs and maintenance shall be carried out by a competent person and be in accordance with the producer’s instructions.
• Hardware, fittings, and accessories should be checked frequently and kept in proper working condition.
• All pivotable connections and the runglock cam surfaces should be lubricated frequently.
• All bolts and rivets shall be in place and secure before using a ladder, and no ladder should be used if any bolts or rivets are missing or if the joints between the steps (or rungs) and the side rails are not tight.
• Ladders with safety shoes or padded feet which are excessively worn shall be taken out of service until repaired.
• Ladders transported on road, street, and highway vehicles shall be properly supported. Overhang of the ladders beyond supporting points should be limited. Supporting points should be of a material such as wood or rubber-covered iron pipe, to minimize chafing and the effects of road shock. Securing the ladder to each support point will greatly reduce damage due to road shock.
• Ladders shall be secured to the truck rack in a manner that will avoid chafing from relative horizontal and vertical motion. The ladder feet, when present, should be secured from pivoting about the ladder while the vehicle is in motion. The ladder truck rack shall be designed to positively secure the ladder into a fixed position, and the rack should be designed to fit the particular ladder being fixed to the truck.
If these requirements are not satisfied, excessive wear of the ladder will occur, which will cause premature deterioration of the ladder and reduce its service life. Improperly designed and used truck racks may damage side rails, steps or rungs, feet, and other ladder parts, owing to vehicle vibration and road shock.
• Store ladder where protected from unsafe materials, impact, or corrosion damage.
• Store ladder away from dampness and excessive heat.
• Store ladder where it cannot be damaged by vehicles, heavy objects, or contaminants.
• Store ladder where it cannot cause a trip hazard or an obstruction.
• Store ladder where it cannot be easily used for criminal purposes.
• Store ladder where it is secured against unauthorized climbing (e.g. by children)
• Ladders should be stored in or on racks designed to protect the ladder when it is not in use. These racks should have sufficient supporting points to avoid sagging. Materials shall not be placed on the ladder while it is in storage.
