After part 8 of the series on the Easy Access Attic Ladder by Werner, your ladder is installed. The only thing left to do is set the ladder's height.

Setting the Ladder Height

Step 1—Remove Feet

Remove the telescoping feet by cutting the plastic tie attaching them to the step.

For 8 ft. ladder: A plastic insert has been provided to be placed in the open end of the telescoping tube. This insert is not required for ceiling heights of 7' 9 1/2" to 8'.
For ceiling heights 7' 9 1/2" to 8' 4", proceed to Step 4.
For ceiling heights 7' 3" to 7' 9 1/2", proceed to Step 2.

For 10 ft. ladder: A plastic insert has been provided to be placed in the open end of the telescoping tube. This insert is not required for ceiling heights of 8'8" to 9' and 9'7" to 9'10" (See Figure 33).
For ceiling heights 9' 7" to 10' 4" proceed to Step 4.
For ceiling heights 8' 8" to 9' 7" proceed to Step 2.
For ceiling heights 8' 4" to 8' 8" proceed to Step 3.

Step 2—Remove Bottom Section

Remove the last section at the bottom of the ladder by removing the 4 screws that hold it in place (see Figure 34). Proceed to Step 4.

Step 3—Remove Bottom Sections

Remove the bottom two sections of the ladder by removing the 4 screws that hold them in place (see Figure 34). Proceed to Step 4.




Step 4—Cut Tie

Cut the plastic tie that holds the ladder section closed and discard.

Step 5—Open Ladder

Open the ladder until you hear the locks engage.

Step 6—Attach Feet

Insert the telescoping feet in the bottommost section of the ladder (see Figure 35).

Step 7—Adjust Feet

Adjust the foot inserts to the proper height and place the screws in the nearest opening. Tighten them (see Figure 36).






Attaching the Steps

Attach the step link to the outside of step with screws, placing plastic spacers between the step link and step (see Figure 37). Repeat on the opposite side and for all the steps in the bottom sections.
