I want to install two tracks in a pantry, but only want to house one ladder. Can it be easily moved from track to track?
A Tyson on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the ladder can simply be lifted off the track and moved to another track easily without having to un-latch or un-do anything.
how wide is the ladder?
Andras G on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: the ladder itself is approximately 17-5/8". With the wheels on the bottom it is approximately 27-5/8"

Can I cut the ladder track and still install the ends ?
alex s on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we cut it and the ends worked fine afterwards.
can i just buy the track, mounting brackets and ladder hooks?
alex s on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can buy any one piece or the whole kit. I bought the kit and had the ladder stain or painted to match the finish of my project.
Does the ladder kit come in any other finishes?
Shannon B on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does, but you would have to check the website for what those finishes are.
Good morning, two questions. Can I get this kit for a six foot ladder? Also, Does the ladder bracket swivel up for verticle storage? Thanks.
Rick O on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ladder length choices are listed when you order. I believe there was a 6 or 7' option. I needed the longest one, 8' as I remember. To your second question, the answer is almost. The ladder bracket slides to allow the ladder to remain hooked over the rail to almost a vertical position - probably about 20 degrees off vertical. This allows the ladder to both roll easily while still hooked over the rail, and to store much closer to the wall than when it is in its working position. When using the ladder, be sure to fully extend the slide of the bracket by pulling the bottom of the ladder away from the wall to ensure maximum safety. It's a nice product, well made, easy to assemble, and works great.
What is the rake on the 8' ladder?
Crystal G on Feb 4, 2016

BEST ANSWER: Not sure I purchased the entire kit with hooks at the great
How much weight will this carry?
Nicole R on Jan 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The weight is entirely supported by the very hefty rollers at the bottom of the ladder. The top brackets don't really support any weight just help keep the ladder steady. The rollers are super-duty when you see them in real life. Quite impressive. I weigh 250+ with no problem at all.
My rail mount location is halfway between an 8 foot and 9 foot ladder (around 99 inches). If I go with the 9 foot ladder, will it just change the rake, or will I have to shorten the bottom legs, or will this just not work?
Jim H on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: it will still work if you leave at 9 it will change the distance from the cabinet at bottom and the treads will not be a little off parralel with floor, or you can cut some off of it

i cut it off the top, not bottom, so it does not change the hight of first step
Do u have tracks that turn 90 degrees?
Diana C on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry no, only straight track is offered.
