Went together well. Very sturdy. Rolls nicely.
Full wall of guitars now accessible by the 10" rolling library ladder!
Mounted the rail on standoffs of 1" black iron pipe and floor flanges to roll over the guitars.
Barnett Music Exchange in Tulsa needed a way to reach the 3rd row of guitars.

Couldn't be more pleased.
A bit confusing when ordering, but gorgeous when it is all done.
9 feet, wall to wall, and 11 feet floor to ceiling bookcase. Perfect ladder.

Reach them books!
Nice looking ladder. Did not realize wood was unfinished and some drilling was necessary. About three hours time including sanding and staining. Rolls nicely, very sturdy and comfortable to stand on.

The prep work was well done but no instructions for how to modify the length to adjust for different heights + or - . You don't want to cut the bottom because is would give an uneven step spacing. That left the top which takes some real careful cutting of compound meters and hole configurations. A simple paper template would have been helpful for this. Also the wood was extremely rough and pitted. Not very good quality for staining.

The bookcases are mahogany and the cherry wood ladder can be stained to accent them.

Good reputation, best fit for my old house.
Henry S on Feb 23, 2017
Have large shelving unit. Did not realize I purchased kit and it did not come with the wood for the ladder.
Cynthia V on Feb 12, 2017
I chose to buy one of Rockler's library ladder wood kits because of the frustration free simplicity of buying a pre-made kit. Making your own library ladder is not as simple as it seems and requires precise angle cuts. I could do it myself, but for Rockler's price...why?

Gorgeous ladder, perfect for attic access door in my bedroom!
Susan H on Dec 7, 2016
for five years i have been planning on a rolling ladder system for my house. I figured everything to the last detail. looked online, rockler was what fit the bill. also, tech support answered the questions i needed answered in terms of my house. real, old, vintage house. provided me with what i needed to make things work. did'nt try to sell me what i didn't need. fabricating a lot myself, but explained how the product worked and what i need to do to make the product work with my install.
james s on Mar 15, 2016
same - and thank you!
we look forward to our back ordered track arriving as soon as possible!

After doing research & considering options, I found your site & product the best option. I visited your retail store in Schaumburg, too, to see the item in person.

What is included in Hardware Kit No. 45514?

CAN THE LADDER BE STORED IN A MORE VERTICAL POSITION?
CAN THE LADDER BE STORED IN A VERTICAL POSITION TO CREATE MORE FLOOR SPACE WHEN THE LADDER IS NOT IN USE
A shopper on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The hooks that are part of the ladder top hardware are mounted on a sliding mechanism that allows the ladder to stay hooked on the rail when the ladder is raised slightly and moved to a more vertical position. My application has a countertop that limits the ladder from going full vertical, but looks like it could if it were not for the countertop.
What size ladder should I order to access a loft 9' off the ground? I do not need it to roll, is their a kit to secure it to make it stationary?
Sarah B on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about the length to reach a 9' loft, it would depend on the climbing angle you want as well as whether you are actually getting in and out of the loft. As far as the stationary aspect is concerned, you can remove the wheels , possibly not buy them to begin with, or put small stops on the rail to eliminate horizontal movement.
I want to cut the wood components out of bamboo to match the bamboo floor. Is there a pattern or drawing of the vertical sides and the steps?
Gary F on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: all the instruction and measurements for our ladders are in the ladder instructions. Here is a link.

What is the width of the wood used for the ladder? Looking for it to store in space between cabinet and wall.
Deanne R on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The steps are slightly wider than the wood. I would make sure you have at least 5 inches to store the ladder away at the bare minimum.
what is the suggested load weight limit for the ladder with cast steps ?
Mike R on Jun 5, 2018
I'm looking for a ladder that can be lifted off a track easily and set on a different track set at same height
Barret R on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only restriction to moving this ladder from one track to another will be the clearance between the top of the track and the ceiling. I just checked my ladder and with 3 inches of clearance it can be removed, but for frequent moving I would recommend about 6 inches of clearance.
does the wood have a finish on it , can it be stained?
sheila c on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No finish on it. It's sanded and can be stained and finished to your liking. Just order the wood specie you desire.
locking wheels?
Gregory H on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: On carpet I'd so no way....Hard floor I wouldn't think so either.....Just like a ladder as soon as you get on it it pretty much stays in 1 spot....Dean S
I love the kit, I have a 8' height, thinking a 9' ladder? Really don't want the sliding kit, only the top hooking hardware...can this be done
sal c on Oct 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think it can be done but make sure you get the right space in between the bottom of the shelf to the bottom of the ladder.You dont want it to straight for you will pull the bracket of the top.Make sure of the angle , just like a regular ladder. Thats all i got.
what is included in Item #: 48222 ?
G A on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 48222 is the two wood side rails for a vintage ladder design in a 10 foot height.
can the 8 foot vintage ladder be shortened - I only have 89 1/2 inches of height on my book case for the rail. Would it be as simple as removing a few inches from the base of the ladder?
Big John on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I *think* that would work. You would have to re-drill the screw holes for the rolling feet and fill the old holes. The first rung of the ladder would be that much closer to the floor and the rolling feet, rather than being below that rung, would be lined up with it. If you'd like, I could mail you a copy the detailed assembly instructions. I hope this helps.
What finish was used on the oak vintage rolling ladder pictured?
Sarah on Sep 29, 2016
I would like a little shorter ladder. I would like to cut off at the first rung exactly so the second step would be your first step. What height would that make my ladder bar. I need to tell my cabinet maker how high to put the wider rail to mount the bar too. Can you help me?
