How we test

Our test of stepladders was conducted in an independent testing laboratory.

Overall score:

  • Safety - 70 percent
  • Ease of use - 30 percent

Safety is based on the number of safety tests passed.

Ease of use evaluates the ease of folding/unfolding the stepladders and how secure the stepladders felt when being stood on.

Price is the price we paid in November and December 2011.
