Telesteps Telescopic Ladders - Good?

Slightly off power tools for a wee while, I wanted to find out what the opinion was on Telesteps ladders.

These are quite ingenious ladders which can be easily carried or transported, they're really lightweight and yet will quickly extend to 3.8 metres high becaise of the telescopic mechanism. They're made in Sweden so should have the usual Swedish quality traits.

There is also a loft ladder version which works with the same telescopic principle so takes up very little space in your attic area.

I wanted to get some feedback from people who are using these ladders. Are they as robust and hardwearing as a conventional ladder, is the mechanism easily mastered? Are there any other comments you would make?

Let us know in the comments box.

They are brilliant. Lightweight doesn't mean unsteady.
