    Default Re: Boarding ladder for safety.

    Yep - you were absolutely right - it didn't sink when I did as you suggested.
    Next I drilled lots of holes in each step where the moldings trap air, and then it did sink when jerking it up and down - but quite slowly - it's not what you'd want in an emergency.
    The rungs definitely should have been metal.
    I'll add some weights to each step.
    Thanks v much for posting this.

    Write to PBO showing the problem, then showing what happened when you drilled the holes, then what happened when you added weights.
    If it goes in the readers tips section you will get anything between £40-00 & £ 100-00 for it, if published, which will go towards the cost of some decent steps
    It is all down to the fact that my wife does not understand me !!
