Default Black Friday suggestion

Stay home.

Here's something useful on the cheap side via Amazon, wives take note, I like mine. I think I sold one of these for more than retail at the 2018 WOG auction.

Default Buyer Beware

Had mine for many years, and love it.
But be aware that the linked Amazon listing is rather deceiving. They are calling what would normally be call an eight foot ladder a "12 foot", and showing an illustration of a person on a 12 rung ladder "reaching" 12 feet high.
Not saying these aren't good ladders, but the ad is misleading.

It's not the Amazon listing but the product information from the mfr.

I love mine too. And, they'd make a lovely gift.
Just wanted to point out that if the ladies wanted to get one for the mens, that "12 foot" or "14 foot" ladder will not make it up to the goat rail. They are about 8' and 10' respectively.

Well, they got me. Sure enough, my 14' ladder measures about 10.5'. I know it's a guy thing to overestimate measurements, but I thought ladders were sold on their actual length and not the assumed length of the user's arms. They're getting it back.
