STORED POSITION
USE POSITION
1. Properly lock cable hooks into use position before
climbing.
2. Never lean ladder on hooks when using it against a
building or other solid surface.
3. Never hang ladder from cable hooks. The cable
hooks are designed for use as a safety precaution, not
as a means of total support for the ladder.
4. Always tie off ladder to cable or pole to prevent sliding.
5. Read and follow all other instructions on the ladder.

DO:
DO NOT:
Inspect the ladder before use, do not use a broken
ladder, if broken remove from service and destroy.

of drugs or alcohol, or are physically impaired.
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 all locks before climbing.
Use the proper working 75.5-degree angle, the
distance from the ladder’s base to the base of the
support wall must be 1/4 the working length of the
75.5° ladder; ie, one foot out from the wall for every four 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 ladder close to 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.

Raising or Lowering the Outriggers
1. To lower the outrigger leg, depress the thumb release button
and pull down on the trigger release lever at the same time and
adjust the outrigger to the desired height. (Figures 8 - 11).
2. To raise the outrigger leg, depress the thumb release button and
pull down on the trigger release lever at the same time and
adjust the outrigger to the desired height. (Figures 8 - 11).
3. Check the bubble level located on the top of the outrigger side
rail to ensure that the ladder is level and properly set up before
climbing. (Figures 5 & 7).
Tip:To ensure smooth operation of the outriggers use a dry
lubricant (3-IN-ONE® is recommended) spray the top surface
of the outrigger. The lubricant will dry in seconds; wipe off all
excess over spray with a dry clean cloth. Do not use oil.
Erecting the SumoStance Ladder
DO NOT stand on the top three rungs.
DO NOT overload your ladder.
Use extreme caution when getting on and off the
ladder.
9. To return the outriggers to the storage position, lower the fly
section completely and lift upward on the release lever. The
outrigger will spring back to the storage position.
DO NOT make temporary repairs of damaged or
missing parts.
Keep your body centered on the ladder while climbing
and working.
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.
Spreading the Outriggers
1. Lower the fly section completely.
2. Lean the ladder against a secure structure.
3. While holding the ladder vertical away from the wall or
secure structure, lean the ladder very slightly to the right and
pull upward on left release lever to unlock the engagement
pin. (Figures 1 - 2).
4. Push the left outrigger out with your left foot and release the
lever. Continue extending the outrigger with your foot until
the engagement pin locks into place. (Figure 3)
5. Ensure the engagement pin is fully locked, if any red is
visible at the end of the pin, the pin is not fully engaged.
(Figure 4).
6. Repeat steps 3 – 4 on the opposite side using your right foot.
7. Check the bubble level located on the top of the outrigger
side rail to ensure that the ladder is level and properly set up
before climbing. (Figures 5 - 7).
8. Raise the fly section to your desired height.
Never release any of the ladder’s locks or attempt to
reposition the ladder while working on the ladder.
Never drop or apply an impact load to ladder.
Do not expose the ladder to extreme heat or harsh
chemicals.
WALK-UP
HAND OVER HAND
Erecting the SumoStance 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 12).
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 12 - 14).
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 14 - 16).
MOVE BACK 1/4TH THE DISTANCE
OF THE LADDER LENGTH TO THE
SUPPORT POINT.

Extending the SumoStance Ladder Using Rope and Pulley
System
1. Position yourself between the ladder and the wall 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
both bubble levels and adjust as needed.
4. To take down your ladder, reverse this process. Working slowly
will help you keep total 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 base when raising extension and never set up ladder
when it is extended.
3. Set a single or extension ladder at proper 75.5-degree angle by
bracing ladder base a distance equal to 1/4 total working length
of ladder away from base of vertical support. If distance is less
than 3 feet, place base of 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 ladder so that approximately 3 feet extends above roof
line or working surface; tie top at support points.
6. Extend top section only from 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 on firm, level surface with a secure footing. Do not use on
slippery surfaces. Do not place on boxes, unstable bases or on
scaffolds. Do not tie or fasten ladders together to gain
additional height.
9. Do not place in front of door opening toward ladder.
10. When possible use second person to hold 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 ladder set up and unattended.
3. Securely engage ladder locks before climbing.
4. Face the ladder when climbing up or down; keep body centered
between side rails. Move ladder as needed.
5. Maintain a firm grip. Use both hands in climbing.
6. Do not climb onto a ladder from the side unless the ladder is
secured against side-to-side 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. Extension ladders are
meant for one person.®
10. Keep your ladder close to your work; avoid over-reaching, 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.
5. To ensure smooth operation of the outriggers use a dry lubricant
(3-IN-ONE® is recommended) spray the top surface of the outrigger; the lubricant will dry in seconds; wipe off all excess over spray
with a dry clean cloth. Do not use oil.
