  • Lifewit Telescopic Aluminium Ladder review

    In short, excellent ladder that fits into your car boot but can be extendable and unfolded to reach the height of a standard height 2 story building. Made of Aluminium with ABS plastic bits and locks.

    This is a very strong, solid and sturdy ladder that works in different ways. Please note that this ladder cannot be folded as a step ladder but collapsible / expanded for interior painting or other DIY jobs around home. Also able to fully extend to climb up for window cleaning up to 2 story buildings, still fits into the car boot when folded and collapsed. Whilst extending you can see and hear the clicks and locks to make sure all the locks are in place.

    Portability is what this ladder is all about. Collapse to a size less than 35 inch height, which easily fits even into a small car. The ladder weighs around 10.5Kg, which is just right and light enough to carry around. Only negative point to mention here is the collapsed mode is not locked, so you have to tied up with the straps provided, but expanding and unfolding is just easy enough without the help of another person.

    There are plenty of warning signs everywhere and instructions on what to do, so it will keep you alerted on what’s going and what you need to watch out for. Very stable and solid foot in the base.

    All good and not so good things

    + Comes readily assembled
    + Easy to expand and collapse
    + Sturdy and durable including the ABS plastic locks
    + Very strong velcro tie
    + Just enough to reach standard 2 story buildings to clean windows etc
    + Variable height

    - Little wobbly in fully expanded position, especially if you are afraid of heights
    - 10.5KG weight

    One more thing, usually the collapsible ladders has little space between the steps when collapsed to you always watch out for your fingers. Thought to warn, just in case. The ladder is EN131 certified which is commercial grade, so surely safe enough for regular DIY use.

    Overall a very chunky ladder still light enough to carry. I’ll keep posting updates as we move on, but definitely good enough for all the DIY and cleaning jobs in and around home. Please do check out the pictures to have a closer look
