Build a ladder for easy access to the highest shelves in your garage or workshop! Our Utility Ladder Hardware Kit features a locking roller system that captures the top rail, resulting in a ladder that rolls smoothly and quietly to wherever it is needed. The bottom legs of the ladder are fitted with rubber pads that grip the floor for stability. To move the ladder, you simply lift it slightly and roll it along the rail to the location you want. The locking wheel assembly rides along the top rail, guiding the ladder as it's re-positioned. Once you've retrieved what you need, you can push the ladder up against the wall or cabinet, and out of the way. You can purchase as many tracks as you need to span a wall, or have multiple tracks on several walls with a single ladder that is moved from track to track. The basic hardware kit makes an 8' ladder with seven steps, and additional steps can be purchased to make a taller ladder. To make constructing your ladder as fast and easy as possible, we also offer pre-machined oak Wood Kits as an accessory - just sand, finish and assemble.

Use our Ladder Design Wizard to customize your own ladder system to your application and preference. After selecting your options and features, you will obtain a Bill of Materials that is your guide for ordering.

Notice: Wood is not included (sold separately).

Perfect for my shop with 12' ceilings.
I have a cabinet shop with 12' ceilings and I installed some cabinets up high to store tools, hardware etc... This ladder is very convenient to use and was easy to install. I would like to have wheels on the bottom instead of rubber feet though.

Looks nice, installs easily
Can be a little bit of trouble to install in you have less than 6 feet clearance on one of the side of your shelves. I built 11 ft. long shelves in a 12 ft. room, so I had to pre-drill holes for the brackets, place the brackets on one length of track, and install.

The end caps need about 1-1/2 inch for clearance from the brackets, though the instructions say 1-1/8 inch is sufficient. I found that was no enough, and had to cut the rubber stopper in half to get one end cap to fit.

I need the rollers/hardware shown in your picture.....cant find them on your site?
Kelli P on Jul 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, the main components for this ladder style are no longer available.
where are the track unions. can't find them in search or hardware
Rick G on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Item 46973

This is what I would use to not only support the rail (track), but to join two together, thus forming a union.

I hope this helps you.
I don't see listed the roller bracket attachment to the ladder??
bill b on Feb 8, 2016
is there a product that allows you to turn a corner to slide it out of sight when not in use??
Maryann T on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, but if you purchase the ladder hardware that hooks to the rail, you can then lift the ladder off and hang it on another rail or lean it off to the side.

can you lift the utility ladder off the rail?
ursula m on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The lower plastic piece under the rail has two positions. You change it from locked to unlocked by rotating this piece 90 degrees. In the unlocked position the ladder can be lifted off.
Is there an handle accessory kit for the top of the ladder?
brian p on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is not. The track brackets stand the track off far enough from the wall that it makes for a sturdy grab bar. If you want to climb higher you an always design the side rails of your ladder to extend past (above) the track height and install a dowel between them. Using Rockler's hardware we've built several rolling ladders, including one for a local distillery with a platform at the top deep enough to stand on. The hardware is very well made.
Are ladder shoe pads and brackets included in rolling ladder kit? Are they sold seperately?

My recollection is that it was all included in the kit. I didn't purchase any additional hardware and had all I needed to assemble my latter. I did order extra rail, but I had two separate areas that required use of the ladder.

Can the ladder be cut?
Lee H on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t see why not. It comes unassembled so you can cut to length per your needs easily
How do I lock the wheels on the rolling library ladder so when I step on it, it does not move?
Hank W on Jun 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No wheels on the bottom of the ladder. Only rollers on the top of the ladder that runs on the bar. Just lift the bottom of the ladder and roll along the bar. Works great.
Hi I am after the track mounts that come straight off the wall, the vertical mount but you only seem to have them in the zinc finish. I want them in satin black. Can you help?
Marco on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you are making the utility ladder then we only have the mounts that come straight out from the wall. Other brackets will not work with the rollers on this ladder
We need a ladder for our cupola. It's a tight space so needs to go flat against the wall when we aren't using but want it easy enough for kids to pull out to use. What is the hardware needed for this? Thanks!
Heather P on May 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can go on to and go through our ladder wizard.
Where is the vertical mount? It doesn't appear in the ordering list at the bottom. I only see track, brackets, unions and end caps.
Tina J on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, but it appears that the utility ladder has been discontinued for our ladder line.
Can I order custom length tracks, ladders, etc?
Michael L on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Track sold in 6 foot lengths. You can cut track as needed or use the splice offered to create any length needed. Wood ladder kits for this utility ladder are offered in 8, 9 and 10 foot length
You can cut these down as well.
