    After inspect this morning found all four ladder hooks the bits that you use to raise and lower the 2nd & 3rd ladder sections all lose.

    Time to get another one methinks :Image3:

    Mind you I just may replace the pop rivets and flog it on ebay as sold as seen as you do. :Image10:

    That's why it's always best to change the ladder every year or so :Image9:

    Even ankalad's & microlite's too will eventualy wear so all kit needs to be inspected on a regular basis and replced if need be.

    Better to be safe than sorry I say :Image10:

    [SIZE=medium]Just recived an email from the manufacture and they will arrange collection at no cost to me then inspect the ladder and either repair or replace it with a new one for free.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Now that's what I call customer aftersales service :Image10: [/SIZE]
