Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson folding step stool. This step stool makes it easier to reach high places. This is perfect for anywhere in your home, your garage. It would be great in an RV, camper, enclosed trailer. It's a nice, lightweight design, extremely portable, and it's foldable. The foldable design makes this stool compact and easy to store out of the way, just like a regular ladder.

You break the sides there and then you can fold it. When you're ready to set it up, spread apart each angle here and make sure these braces get pushed all the way down and locks it into place. Each platform features a non-slip tread design so that's going to give you sure footing on each step. Again, it's sturdy, it's lightweight. It's made from aluminum so it's going to do a great job at resiting rust and corrosion and it's very sturdy and stable.

This unit features a weight capacity of 330 pounds.A few measurements to go over with you real quick. Starting with the overall height, that's going to give us a measurement of around 15 1/2 inches. The base, when fully folded out like this, is about 17 1/2 inches. Measuring to the height of the first step, which is right here, that measures about 7 inches from the ground. This platform at the top measures 11 1/2 inches by 7 1/8 of an inch.

Then when it's folded, it breaks down to an overall height, so right now 17 1/2 inches tall. At the widest point, which is here at the top edge to edge, is 14 inches wide. Excuse me, the width would be at the bottom, is where I took that measurement. 14 inches wide at the widest point, which is here at the base. You can see that, about 14 inches, and then the deepest point or thickest point is here at the top.

Edge to edge is about 7 inches.That's going to do it for today's look at the Stromberg Carlson folding step stool.

We needed a small light weight step stool for the airplane we just bought. It will make it easy to check the fuel and do the maintenance. Also, I'll use it to help me get into the plane. It folds nicely so it will be easy to store inside. Great product! 315230

I do not own an RV or camper but use this for chores around my house. It is the perfect solution for a small step as well as a seat when working on my motorcycle at a low height. It is lightweight and folds up nicely and even stands upright when folded. When sitting on it, I put a small cushion pad on top to make it comfortable. I am sure it is great for use with an RV but I strongly recommend it for household use and general chores as it has proven very useful. 583908

I like the way this is made and think it is going to work out well. It is light weight and will be great for taking horse camping. Will help me reach the vent in the trailer and also work great for a mounting block and putting up a high line. 333257

Quick service, free shipping and order was packed well and received with no damage. Would definitely refer friends to etrailer. 668951

This is a very sturdy compact small folding stool. It is built very well. I have used it for a year in the back of my truck. I tried several other types of stools and they all failed causing risk of injury. This one is solid as a rock and I believe it will last indefinitely. 635962

I have only one thing to say about this product: "where has it been all my life?" It's just the right height, very sturdy, and ultra light. I plan to purchase a couple more for my other vehicles/trailers. 502398

I don't have the product in hand yet. The most important thing here isn't the product, its Kaylie and the way she served a customer, She was a pleasure to deal with...polite, professional, friendly and a big plus on your staff. When I order next, I'd love it if she picked up my call 384926

So I recently installed a suspension lift on my full size pickup and I could no longer reach the middle of my windshield and hood when washing the truck. I felt uneasy standing on an upside down 5 gallon bucket and I'm no spring chicken anymore and I value my safety & well being. Now that I'm further along in life I'm really into self-preservation. Enter the step stool. This little thing is great. In todays world of companies manufacturing crap that doesn't last, this step stool has great design, is well engineered, and built to last. All the critical functioning parts are aluminum and steel fastened with rivets and no screws to come loose. I was delighted to open the box and pull out this step stool as it was better than I expected. It made me smile. I fully expect to get at least 25 years of good regular use out of this. Bravo. 316083

I ordered this step stool more to use more as a low seat when working around our motor home, accessing the outside hatches ( especially when the slide rooms are extended ), and I wanted something that was sturdy and could fold. This product fulfills all of those needs. It is also a sturdy step stool for reaching things inside my pick up truck bed. I noticed a couple of pleasant surprises when I first opened the box. The feet on the bottom are a much thicker/stronger rubber than most step stools and should hold up well. From the pictures, I expected the black trim pieces on either side of the top step to be plastic, but they are not. They are painted metal. The smaller cosmetic pieces on either side of the lower step are the only plastic on the whole product. I should mention that when I found this product online, I checked several online retailers. etrailer had the best price by far. Although I chose "economy shipping", I received the step stool in 48 hours. 277672

  • Recommended Winch for Lifting Platform in Garage
  • While you certainly could use a worm gear winch such as # DL11001, I recommend using the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL10976, which is designed for what you are trying to do. This winch can be mounted to your ceiling and you can use Hex Shaft # DL406102 which will allow a drill to crank it, and you'll also want Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24045. This winch has a capacity of 2,000 lbs which will be more than enough for your 300 lbs of gear.

  • Easier Way to Access Fifth Wheel Hitch on Flatbed Truck
  • There is no extension for a fifth wheel hitch handle to let you access it from a distance. The best solution for you would be to use something like the Thule Step Up Wheel Step # TH232, assuming your flatbed does not jut out over the tires too significantly. Otherwise a simple step stool such as # PA-202 is your best option.

  • Cannot Reach Knob On Ventline Ventadome Roof Vent
  • I recommend switching the manual vents out for the Ventline Ventadome Powered Lift Vents part # V2119-1-533. These vents can be opened and turned on/off with a switch powered by a 12V power source. The cut out is the same size as your existing vents so you can use the same opening to install the new fans. There is not a handle stick or extension to turn the knob open on Ventline Ventadome Roof Vents part # V2110SP-24 at this time. The Stromberg Carlson stool part # PA-202 is 15-1/2"...

  • Availability of Load-Assist Kayak Carrier to Use on Tall RV
  • The extension legs for the Malone TelosXL Load Assist # MPG351XL really do need to make contact with the ground to allow for proper operation because as you mentioned, there aren't any other contact points (such as suction cups on the vehicle side) to provide support. Because of the height of your Ram Promaster I don't think there really is a load-assist option that will work well to assist with loading or unloading your kayaks. Any of them will either require some ground support or...

  • Recommended Bumper Hitch and Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2006 Ford Super Duty
  • Mr. Wizard is currently out of the office on a long weekend but I'd be more than happy to make some recommendations for you. I should start by saying a bumper pull trailer hitch is definitely going to cost less than adding a fifth wheel hitch but I'll give you options for both so you can make an informed decision about what you want to do. For a trailer hitch on your 2006 Ford F-250 or F-350 Super Duty I recommend checking out the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15410 which is a Class...

  • Parts Needed to Transport a Kayak and SUP with a 2016 Chevy Tahoe
  • The roof rack that I recommend installing on your 2016 Chevy Tahoe is the Thule WingBar Evo system which consists of the 60" Bars # TH711520 Black or # TH711500 Silver, the Podium Feet # TH460R, and the Fit Kit # THKIT4041. Then for carriers I recommend the Thule Hull-A-Port XT # TH848 for your kayak because you can use the lock kit # TH450600 to lock/unlock both the roof rack and the carrier with one key. This carrier also features ramps on one end to help make loading your kayak easier....

  • Can Stromberg Carlson Folding Step Stool # PA-202 Be Used for Commercial Application
  • I spoke with my contact at Stromberg Carlson regarding the Folding Step Stool # PA-202 that you referenced. She stated that there are no restrictions on this ladder with regards to commercial use. You can use this for your application without issue. This folding step stool features a 330 pound weight capacity and an overall height of 15-1/2 inches. I have attached a short video demonstration on the ladder that you can also check out.

  • Accessing the Rear of a 2016 Nissan NV 1500
  • There is not going to be a suspension enhancement we offer which will allow your father's 2016 Nissan NV 1500 to lower it's back end. The easiest solution for you in all honestly would be to use a step stool such as the Stromberg Carlson # PA-202. This would be the far more cost-effective solution that should work well.

  • Step to Help Get in Drivers Side of 2001 GMC Savana Box Truck
  • The step you referenced would not work for your 2001 GMC Savana box truck as there would not be a way to mount it. Because there are no running boards that are a fit for your vehicle, the only option that would work is something like the Folding Step Stool # PA-202, which has a height of 15-1/2" and when folded is 17-1/2" tall x 12" wide x 12" deep.
