I’m not sure who’s more excited about this ladder – me or my husband!
Extend-a-Step graciously sent us the most awesome ladder ever. The general concept of this ladder is that it is compact, portable, light-weight, made from aircraft quality aluminum, and super easy to store making it a snap to use.
Check out how compact this ladder is:
But in about 5 seconds flat, it goes from compact to over TWELVE FEET TALL! Wowza.
The Extend-a-Step ladder is perfect for hanging Christmas Lights:
…Or reaching those awkward too-high plant shelves that are so popular in newer homes.
With two wild monkeys for children, reaching the plant shelf for random toys is a weekly occurrence!
Extend-a-Step is also great for reaching those out-of-reach spaces that a traditional ladder can’t, such as inside a stairwell.
This is especially handy when you start painting, then realize you can’t reach, and then dump the project on your unsuspecting husband and tell him to “figure it out”. 😉
In addition to the obvious ways you can use a telescoping ladder, there are also loads of other uses for an extendable ladder, such as…
To help you reach your silverware drawer:
(This picture is as real as it gets. Bowl on the floor, dirty dishes galore, hydrogen peroxide on the counter…)
To make talking to Wilson easier:
To help you reach door mats that are drying on the balcony after a rainstorm:
(Our dog, Chase, is looking at Ben thinking, “Yo, dude! You.are.a.moron. Just use the stairs.”)
To make getting on the trampoline easier…
…so you can then show off your mad back flip skillz.
And most importantly, so you can reach your cooler to grab a nice cold Dr Pepper.
Of course, you can always reach the top shelf easier by not extending the ladder all the way, and using it the way it was intended, but really, the real question here is, “Which way is more fun?”
This lightweight totally friggin’ awesome ladder even comes with a carrying case, making lugging it around even easier! And cuter.
* please note, Ben usually does not have a handlebar ‘stashe. He grew it for Movember.
