Assembly Instructions

TIP: Assemble your ladder on the ground, then put it into position for installation.
Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 1

To determine the height of your assembled ladder, decide where you want the top rung positioned and measure straight down to the floor.

Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 2

If joining sections to achieve desired height: Insert and bolt the connectors into the bottom of each ladder section, except for the section that’s going to touch the floor.

Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 3

If joining sections to achieve desired height: Slide the ladder sections together by inserting the connectors into the top of each ladder section; no bolts are needed since gravity will ultimately hold them together.

If not joining sections, skip steps 2 & 3.

Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 4

Measure the overall ladder from the very top rung to the height you need and cut off any excess from the bottom where it’s going to touch the floor. Note that the top of the bottom rung must be between 2" – 14" to comply with OSHA standards. If needed, use the ladder extension kit to ensure the top rung height is correct and bottom rung height is OSHA compliant.

Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 5

Stand up the ladder and mark the positions for the standoffs. The top standoffs should be placed just below the top rung; remaining standoffs should be spaced no more than 6' apart.

Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 6

Drill holes in the ladder rails 1/16" larger than the supplied bolts, then secure the standoffs to the ladder. Torque the bolts to 60 in./lbs.; don’t overtighten.

Ladder in a Box Assembly Step 7

With the ladder in its final position, install the anchor clips by placing them against the ladder rail and drilling through. Use a bolt to secure each clip. Use the anchor bolt to secure the clip to the ground.

If your system includes fall protection and/or walk-throughs, additional instructions will be provided.
