The Zarges Utility Ladder is a multi-function ladder which may be used as a stepladder, stepladder on stairways and a straight lean-to ladder. The ladder consists of 3-parts: 2 sections, each with 4 rungs, which are connected by a locking hinge mechanism. The 3rd outer section is made from an open ‘C’ profile, which is designed to slide over the inner section. Please note the inner part MUST NOT be used as a stepladder without the outer part.
The hinge will lock automatically when the ladder is opened to the ‘A’ stepladder mode. An indicator will show that the mechanism is locked: ‘O’ indicates that the mechanism is unlocked and ‘C’ indicates that the mechanism is locked. The mechanism must be unlocked to allow the ladder to close or to be opened completely to a straight ladder: pull the lever until the locking indicator clicks into the open ‘O’ position. Repeat on the other hinge.
The extending section is locked in place by a spring-loaded rung locking bolt on each side of the ladder. Open the bolt by pulling it outwards and rotating it to rest on the stile of the extension. Extend the ladder to the desired length and relocate the rung locking bolt.
