Assembly & Installation

For shipping purposes all ladders are supplied un-assembled.    

 

Step by step

Carefully read each step before starting

 

Assembling a ladder with wood steps

Tools: Phillips Head Screw Driver

With the ladder side rails laying parallel  on a table or the floor use a Philips head screw driver insert supplied wood screws through the ladder side rail brackets and into pre-drilled holes of each wood step.  

PRO TIP: Start with the top and bottom steps, have someone hold the side rails in the proper position to ensure they are straight.

Assembling a ladder with stainless steel steps

Tools: Allen Wrench

With the ladder side rails laying parallel  on a table or the floor align the steps with the pre-drilled holes on the side rails of the ladder.  Use the supplied Allen Wrench to tighten each supplied screw.   

PRO TIP: Start with the top and bottom steps, have someone hold the side rails in the proper position to ensure they are straight.

Adjusting the leveling foot

Tools: Level or Tape Measure

Unless you order your ladder with the auto-stop base wheels, the ladder will be supplied with a rubber base leveling foot.  This foot is designed to screw into the base of the ladder and provide adjustment for leveling the ladder. 

 

Once the ladder is safely assembled and is installed on the rail at the proper height, make any necessary adjustment to this foot by screwing it in or out until the steps are level and the rubber feet are both flat on the floor.

Mounting the rail to the wall

Tools: Power Drill, Bubble Level, Tape Measure, supplied Allen Wrench

  • Establish the center rail height on the wall. Center rail height is established when ordering your ladder, 7 or 8 Ft. above the finished floor.

  • Carefully measure and mark the center positions of each pre-drilled hole of the rail on the wall making sure to keep them level with the finished floor.  Review the "Rail Configurations" specification sheet to ensure accuracy of the dimensions.

  • With all hole locations verified, drill for each fastening position with the power drill 10mm drill bit suggested for plastic expansion anchors.

  • Prep each drilling with the supplied plastic expansion anchor.

  • With a helping hand, hold the rail level--the hexagon head wood lag fits through the front of the rail.

  • Fit the distance sleeve over the wood lag on the wall side of the rail

  • Last the flat side of the rosette should be flat on the wall.

  • With all fastenings assembled, ensure accuracy with the bubble level and tighten each position with the supplied Allen wrench.

Installing the stops on the rail

Tools: Supplied Allen Wrench

The supplied stops are to slide onto the end of each rail.  The hexagon head screw allows for the stop to be widened to fit onto the rail, use this same screw to tighten the stop into the preferred position.

PRO TIP: If stop is to be between wall fastening positions (ex. for less travel distance) remember to place the stops onto the rail before mounting the rail on the wall.
