Home Improvement Tools : How to Use an Extension Ladder


Hi! I’m Drew Finn here for Expert Village.
We are going to talk about standard hand tools and how to use them. We are going to demonstrate
how to use this multi-use ladder. This particular one will go A-frame like this or full extension
which I will show you in a moment. This is a A-frame, very sturdy and you could go up
it safely and be sturdy on it. So if you want it a little higher, close that up, pull these
out and that will allow us to extend it. So we’ll go up a couple of notches. Whenever
when you are doing this you want to visually verify these went in, not just listen so you
make sure you have good connection. So we are pushing our little nubs here until they
click and again, you can visualize they are in there and you have a ladder a little taller
if you need to get up there. Okay now let’s show you how we do a full extension on it.
We’ll start from when it’s down. Again, hold onto the top, lower it down and you are in
the travel position. So if we wanted to go full extension, we would push it once, it
will click at A-frame, push it in again and it will extend to be straight out. Now if
you need it a little longer, they way to do it is lean it towards you, pull two nubs out
and walk backwards, reengage. Again, visually verify they are both and you are ready to
go up on the ladder.
