Now, we are going to set up the ladder. Bring it up to a vertical. Open it up. Make sure the sides are fixed in to place and secure. As I stand on top of a ladder, if I'm working on this ladder, I must never lean over this way, lean over that way. I must stay within the sides. Always maintain a free point of contact if I am doing a particular job. Never stand on the top of this. This was not designed, that is only for putting certain tools on. Next is packing away. In reverse, lift these clips to the side, push it together, and bring it back down to the floor again. That is the safe use of a step ladder.
