Perfect Light Duty LadderI've owned and used this ladder for about thirty years and have found it to be durable as well as very useful. I bought it at an old time hardware store that has since gone out of business. I logged into this site looking for another one to buy for my son. I weigh in at 230 lbs and have never had an issue. Any time you have twisting or warping in a ladder you are not setting it up the right way and good luck to you. Any tool can be broken when it's abused. It's handy and easy to use. I love mine and would recommend it.

Too light duty for meThough I am sure it is tested to 200 lbs like they say, this ladder does not inspire confidence. 2 small clips and 2 small hooks held on by one bolt each do not give it a sturdy feel. I weigh184lbs and when I am on it, it twists and the 2 halves look likey might come apart. I use a heavy duty Werner extension ladder with those standard flip-locks and trust it completely. With this one, I will not use it without a heavy duty rope fed through a rung on each half tied tightly. Spend more money
