DO:
Inspect the ladder before use, do not use
a broken ladder. If your ladder is broken,
remove it from service and destroy it.
Use the correct size of ladder for the job.
Read all instructions on the ladder
before using it. Get to know your ladder.
Securely engage rung locks before
climbing.
75.5°
Use the proper 75.5-degree working
angle, the distance from the ladder’s
base to the base of the support wall
must be 1/4 the working length of the
ladder; i.e., 1 foot out from the wall for
every 4 feet in height. Use the level
bubbles installed on the ladder to check
the proper angle.
Keep the ladder clean and free from
debris. Wear slip-resistant shoes.
Keep the ladder close to your work:
avoid pushing or pulling on the ladder.
Climb up and down always facing the
ladder. Use both hands and maintain a
firm grip while climbing. Always keep at
least one hand securely holding the
ladder side-rail while working. Keep
three points of contact with the ladder.
Keep your body centered on the ladder
while climbing and working.
Haul tools up on a line rather than
carrying them.
Be aware of high winds; climb only in
emergency situations with the ladder
fully secured at the top and bottom to
prevent movement. Have another
person hold the base of the ladder.
Use extreme caution when getting on
and off the ladder.
Get help in carrying and setting up a
heavy ladder.
DO NOT:
DO NOT climb a ladder if you tire
easily, are subject to fainting
spells, using medicine, are under
the influence of drugs or alcohol,
or are physically impaired.
DO NOT hurry or skip steps.
Always take one step at a time,
firmly setting one foot before
moving the other.
DO NOT make temporary repairs
of damaged or missing parts.
DO NOT stand on the top three
rungs.
DO NOT overreach; if needed
move the ladder.
ALWAYS CHECK
LOCKS:
ALWAYS BE SURE THE
LOCKS ARE FULLY
ENGAGED AND THE FLY IS
IN FRONT OF THE BASE
BEFORE CLIMBING.
Make sure both shoes are on firm
level and non-slippery surfaces.
Use spike plate on penetrable surfaces.
For proper use of spike shoe, position the
safety shoe with the rubber foot pad
toward user when climbing ladder.

WALK-UP
HAND OVER HAND
Erecting the Lunar Ladder
1. Lay the ladder on the ground with the base
section facing up. Place the spike shoe of the
ladder against a wall to keep the ladder from
moving. (Figure 1).
2. Lift the other end of the ladder, and walk the
ladder hand over hand one rung at a time until
you are able to lean the ladder against the
wall. The inner or fly section should be facing
out. (Figures 1-3).
3. Lift the base of the ladder and carefully move
the base away from the wall until the ladder
leans at a 75.5-degree angle. Use the bubble
level to verify that you have set the ladder at a
75-degree angle. (Figures 3-5).
MOVE BACK 1/4TH THE DISTANCE
OF THE LADDER LENGTH TO THE
SUPPORT POINT.
PLACE FOOT ON BOTTOM
RUNG OR BASE SECTION.
SET UP AT
75.5° ANGLE
Extending the Lunar Ladder Using Rope and
Pulley System
1. Position yourself in front the ladder and lean
the ladder slightly away from the wall.
2. Pull the rope to extend the ladder to your
desired height.
3. When the ladder reaches the desired height,
make sure the rung locks are fully hooked
over the two rung sections. Check bubble
level and lean angle as needed.
4. To take down your ladder, reverse this
process. Working slowly will help you keep
control of the ladder.

GENERAL OPERATING SAFETY TIPS
PROPER SELECTION
1. Select ladder of proper size to reach working height.
2. IMPORTANT: Ladders are designed to support one
person plus materials and tools, not more than the
working load on the notice label on this ladder.
INSPECTION
1. Inspect upon receipt and before each use; never
climb a damaged, bent or broken ladder. All parts
must be in good working order.
2. Make sure all rivets, joints, nuts, and bolts are tight,
rungs secure, ladder extension locks and feet functioning (if necessary, lubricate), rope properly
attached and in good condition.
3. Keep your ladder clean, free from grease, oil, mud,
snow, wet paint, and other slippery material. Keep
your shoes clean; leather soles should not be used.
4. Never make temporary repairs of damaged or
missing parts.
5. If your ladder is broken, worn or exposed to fire or
chemical corrosion, destroy it.
PROPER SET-UP
1. DANGER! METAL CONDUCTS ELECTRICITY! Do
not let ladders of any material come in contact with
live electrical wires.
2. Secure the base when raising extension and never
set up the ladder when it is extended.
3. Set a single or extension ladder at proper 75.5degree angle by bracing the ladder base a distance
equal to 1/4 total working length of the ladder away
from base of vertical support. If the distance is less
than 3 feet, place the base of the ladder a minimum
of 3 feet from vertical support.
4. Set your ladder on firm ground. Do not lean
sideways. Do not use on ice or snow or slippery
surface without non-skid devices or securing feet.
5. Erect the ladder approximately 3 feet above the roof
line or working surfaces; tie top at support points.
6. Extend the top section only from the ground, never by
“bouncing” or from the roof.
7. Do not over-extend. Maintain a minimum overlap of
34” for ladders up to 32.’
8. Place the ladder on a firm, level surface with a secure
footing. Do not use the ladder on slippery surfaces.
Do not place the ladder on boxes, unstable bases or
on scaffolds. Do not tie or fasten ladders together to
gain additional height.
9. Do not place the ladder in front of a door opening
toward it.
10. When possible use a second person to hold your
ladder.
PROPER CLIMBING AND USE
1. DO NOT USE LADDERS if you tire easily, are subject
to fainting spells, are using medicine or alcohol, or are
physically impaired.
2. To protect children, do not leave a ladder set up and
unattended.
3. Securely engage the rung locks before climbing.
4. Face the ladder when climbing up or down; keep your
body centered between the side rails. Move ladder as
needed, do not overreach.
5. Maintain a firm grip. Use both hands while climbing.
6. Do not climb onto a ladder from the side unless the
ladder is secured against side-wise motion. Do not
climb from one ladder to another.
7. Do not stand on or above the top three rungs. Never
climb above the top support point.
8. Do not use a ladder in high winds.
9. Never use an extension ladder as a platform, plank or
hoist. Never use a ladder on a scaffold. Do not overload the ladder. Extension ladders are meant for one
person.
10. Keep your ladder close to your work; avoid overreaching, pushing or pulling off the side of the ladder.
11. Never drop or apply an impact load to a ladder.
12. Do not “walk” or “shift” the ladder while standing on it.
PROPER CARE AND STORAGE
1. Hang your ladder on racks in a dry place at intervals of
6 feet for support.
2. Properly secure and support your ladder while in transit.
3. Never store materials on your ladder.
4. Keep your ladder clean and free of all foreign materials.
