Product Review


1.  The telescoping extension ladder is a marvel of the times due to the ability to store it in a car or even behind the seat of a truck.  However, the ladder does make some nervous due to the possibility it could collapse if not locked into place correctly.  Although i have never seen this occur, it is always in the back of your mind.


2.  The folding ladder, although not quite as portable as its telescoping counterpart will still fit into the backseat of most cars or in the trunk.  The ladder is also quite a bit longer, giving it much more versatility.  Lastly, it appears very rigid once locked into place, leaving you with a much more secure feeling when climbing it.
