Works as advertised. We have tested it out (fire drill) as a family - was kind of fun.
The top handle is a little tricky. It is a very good idea to practice. We realized the first window we put it out had a window underneath it and would not be a good window to exit. Also good to show kids how it works. Hopefully they won't be using it when they shouldn't.
Rated 5 out of 5 by EmomID While I hope to never have to use this product it looks as though it will get the job done. I don't think the picture represents it well though. It's an accordian style ladder which wasn't clear to me from the description or the pictures.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MiniRich Good Product
I think this is a good product overall. I only have one complaint, which may not be applicable to everyone. I live in a really old house, with really thick walls. As a result, my window sills are approximately 15 inches wide. The foldable bars on the top end of the ladder do not extend wide enough to fit around my window sills. I think (or rather hope) that they will still work. We did get them out of the box to test them. I feel safer having them, and do recommend the use of these ladders, they just may not meet the needs of everyone. :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by jdog07 Great ladder!
Impressed that no assembly was required, packaged great, ready to use!
Rated 4 out of 5 by OhioSettler Great for kids - it works.
My eleven year old son opened this up, took it out of the box, opened the window, hung it on the sill, dropped it down and climbed down with no problem. Came in the house and did it again, then boxed it up and put it under his bed, all by himself. Should have bought it for him when we moved in 4 years ago.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherricola Comes in handy
We moved to an apartment that has two floors but the entrances are all on the first floor. If there was ever a serious fire downstairs and we were upstairs there would be no way out! I decided to get this and it seems very straight forward. It is a good price especially if it saves a life. I have not put it to use just yet. With it being winter it is too cold to open a window. But I will definitely try it soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by westiesugar 2-story fire escape ladder
very easy to use - 11 yrs old granddaughter hung from window sill, out the window and down she went - just as a storm was blowing in -
Rated 5 out of 5 by angelvoice We were very pleased with this ladder. We have a 2 story home with all the bedrooms upstairs. One night after getting our ladders, we had a safety night and taught the kids how to use it to get out the window. All of us, including my husband (who weighs 250 lbs) went out the window several times. The ladder is easy to use and very sturdy. It has given us great peace of mind to know our children would be able to escape if a fire were to block the stairway.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sonfather Save a kid! Peace of Mind!
Good price and peace of mind. Teenager upstairs well worth saving his life. Tested by 6 ft, 226 lb adult Father. Gets me out safe so sure son will get out safe. Hopefully he'll never have to use and helps me sleep better at night. How could I live with myself should he ever need this and I was too cheap to spend the little $$ for this! Think his life is worth much much more than this little investment! ThanX for a decent product

Bought as a gift for my daughter. Opened and looked at it and it seemed secure. Although I was forced to enter a Recommendation Yes or No- I can't in good conscience offer an opinionThis is just one thing you just pray is never used.
Rated 4 out of 5 by marigoldblue Good thing to have
We live in a house where our children sleep upstairs. It gives me peace of mind to have these ladders in their rooms. While we haven't used them yet - and hope never to need them - they appear sturdy and easy to maneuver. The price was reasonable and delivery was quick to our local store. (The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I haven't actually tried the product out yet.)
Rated 4 out of 5 by NanaBear55 Made well & easy to store. A bit skinny
Made well & easy to re-store. A bit skinnier than I anticipated but my grand-daughter climbed it ok when given a non-emergency run.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GrandmaDaugherteam Looks sturdy
The ladder is neatly packaged and, I assume easy to use. We have not tried it yet. I purchased for my daughter and son to use from a 2nd floor condo. First Alert claims that the sill widths should be min 6 inches to max 10 inches. However, on Walmart's website it states max as 14 inches. I hope that Walmart's description is correct....as that is why I purchased it. It is light weight, nicely packaged for quick use and sturdy looking. Good price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by VacationRentalByOwner I ordered the ladders for safety and it was delivered to the store promptly. The service was great. I have not used nor plan to use these ladders but they are available if needed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by unusal1shopper Good emergency ladder for in case of a fire.
I purchased this ladder because it seem to look better than what the competition had to offer and the price was good also,I have not tested it yet. You can test with that this ladder. You can't do that with the competitions model theirs is one use only recommended by the company.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dghenson7720 Hope we never have to use
We bought this because our daughter moved to an apartment with an upstairs, and her and babys room are up stairs. Seems to be a good buy, just hope we never have to use it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by johnnyd123 Hope I never use it
Appears to be well made and hooks on the window fine. You need to consider having a stool or something to stand on to make the transition out the window. Of course, if your rear end gets hot enough, you'll probably figure something out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by craigster08 Safety Ladder
We had a small fire in our house and decided that we needed escape routes for the second floor. These ladders are perfect, even bought them for our adult children for their safety. They were extremely pleased. The ladders are a little heavy but work! Safety is all that matters and getting out safely if needed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by guz29 Safety first
Excellent precautionary item to have in any home.
Best Price-Compared to all other stores and same quality product
Rated 5 out of 5 by UGAmomof3 Thrilled with this product
My child had taken a fire safety class at school and we were very excited to purchase this 'escape ladder'! It drops easily out the window and is very easy to fold back up and store in its box. A little too bulky for the 10 year old to handle at first, but after a couple of tries, he did well with it. It is a product that you hope you never need but you sleep a little better at night knowing that you have it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LeisureStar This was everything i expected it to be.
Everyone with a 2 story house needs one of these. It is very sturdy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mpdm a very needed item
was the best value around, something everyone needs for two-story home with kids or grandkids
