This 3-step aluminum dock ladder was created to facilitate getting in and out of the water. The angled design requires less effort to climb than does a conventional straight ladder. Its steps measure 5-1/2 inches deep and 17 inches wide, ensuring comfortable and proper footing. The steps themselves have traction grooves for better grip. Sturdy squared handrails are only 1-inch in diameter, making for easy gripping for smaller hands such as those of children. Edges are rounded for comfort and safety. Made from aluminium, these ladders are sturdy, lightweight, and will not rust. A special J-hook system enables easy removal and installation in a matter of seconds great for winter storage, or if you simply want to get the ladder out of the way of approaching boats. Fits on any aluminium or wood dock. Measures approximately 37 inches from surface of the dock to bottom of the ladder. 11 inches space (height) between each step. Up to 250 pounds recommended weight capacity.
