We don’t sell 20’ high step ladders, 10’ is the highest. We do carry a 21’ multi- ladder (61-1056) but the max height of the ladder in the step ladder position will only be approximately 9’.

The ladder is telescopic.

1) Lay the ladder flat on the ground in the extension ladder position by pressing the round yellow buttons on each side. It will “click” when it is locked into position.

2) Disengage or unhook the yellow hooks on both sides and pull apart the ladder to the longest extension position and then keep pulling it apart until it separates. Do this to both ends. You will have 3 pieces.

3) The longest piece can be folded back into the first “A” frame by pressing the yellow buttons and folding it into an “A” position/step ladder position.

4) Position the 2 shorter pieces in an “A” frame position with the yellow hooks at the top. Stand at the side of the “A” frame facing the rails, not the steps. Make sure the steps of both pieces are on the left side of the rails.

5) Use the hooks from the ladder on the right and hook/insert them into the holes of the ladder on the left.

6) Once the hooks are fully engaged, make sure you spread the legs out as wide as you can to provide maximum stability before you use it .

7) You now have 2 “A” frames and you can add a plank to make a work surface.

8) Refer to the instructions on the side of the ladder for further assistance.

This is a difficult question to answer because we don’t know what position the ladder is stuck in.

The yellow buttons on the side of the ladder need to be pressed to release the locking mechanism that keeps the ladder from bending. These locks are spring loaded and will require some pressure to press them. Once the lock is released, ladder can be folded in half. There are 4 hooks on the side of the ladder that need to be pulled out and turned to allow the ladder to become telescopic. Once the 2 locks are pressed and the 4 hooks are released you should be able to fold the ladder in half and reduce the ladder to its smallest size for storage. Don’t forget to reengage the hooks once the ladder is in its smallest size to prevent the ladder from expanding during transport. Because the yellow buttons are spring loaded they will automatically lock in place once the ladder is folded.

Mastercraft is the newer model. We stopped buying the Vulcan brand. They are almost identical in function so we decided to use the same product number. There are small discernable differences in the pin mechanisms but both are equally sturdy and reliable. The Vulcan ladder has a capacity of CSA grade 1 but it is also rated to ANSI 1A. The Mastercraft ladder is also rated as CSA 1 and ANSI 1A. The only obvious difference is in the colour (yellow/blue vs. black), the brand name and warranty.

Question

I noted on the extension ladders that the "safe working height" is often 6 or 7 feet less that then "title" of the ladder. What is the highest I can get my feet off the ground using this ladder?

The users height directly impacts the working height. Since we do not know what your height is, it is impossible to calculate. However, when using this ladder the user should not use or exceed the 3rd rung from the top of the ladder. That means rungs 1, 2 and 3 (from the top) should not be used to step on.

A 17’ multi-task ladder in the extension position is 15’ long, minus 4’ to account for the 3rd rung rule and your feet are approximately 11’ off the ground.
