IMPORTANT! Familiarise yourself with how the ladder works before use!
- Each step on the ladder has a pair of locking mechanisms. These consist of spring-loaded steel pins that automatically lock into place as the ladder is extended.
- Each mechanism is connected to a locking lever visible on the outside (see Fig. 1).
- The locking levers have 2 purposes. They indicate whether the mechanism is locked (or not) and they serve as buttons for releasing the pins (lowering the ladder).
- A lever that is close to the side rail indicates that the mechanism is locked. A lever away from the side rail indicates that it is NOT locked (see Fig. 2).
CAUTION! The locking mechanisms may appear to audibly 'click' shut, but always visually ensure they are locked. The locking mechanism must be fully secured before use.
The locking mechanism must be locked before using the ladder.
To unlock the hinge, pull from the centre of Hinge Release Rod and then let go.
To lock the hinge, move the ladder to the position indicated. Make sure that the Lock Bolts lock in place on both hinges. Check the label on both hinges to be certain that they are locked (if necessary, move the ladder section slightly back and forth to ensure locking).
- Ensure all hinges are locked before using the ladder.
- Never use anything other than your hand to lift up the hinge release rod.
- Never use the hinge release rod to adjust, move or transport the ladder.
- Do not use this ladder if the lock bolts do not lock in place.
- Keep hinges clean and free of dirt, paint, snow, etc.
