Slim Folding Step Stool
Great Space Saving Step Stool
We have a larger and sturdier folding step stool from The Container Store already but I needed one for just my office. I didn't want a huge bulky thing so I opted for this smaller one. It does what it needs to do and takes up very little room when folded up. I found it a little difficult to close when I first got it. There is a red plastic cap that you have to press in a certain way plus pull on a strap at the same time to close. Our other step stool folds away by pulling on one small lever. I think it was really stiff when I first tried it out. It seems to close up a lot quicker now. Still requires a little finesse though. It says the max weight is 225lb but I'm not sure how well it would hold up to the max weight for a long period of time. I am 118lbs and I find it just sturdy enough for me. Also, the bottom edge underneath is sharp metal (where the metal folds under). Its not rounded off or smoothed out. Also the place where it folds on the side could be an easy place to catch your finger. You definitely have to follow the directions to a T when folding it up. And keep all this in mind if you have little ones. For quick use well under the max weight, I say this works great.

Love this stepstool. It's the perfect height for reaching tall kitchen cabinets. And it stores perfectly in a narrow kitchen cabinet (it's about 22" high x 1.5" wide when folded). Easy to fold up, too.

STEP ON IT
What's there to say.....It's a step stool. I step on it and I can reach stuff I couldn't before.

Exactly what I wanted!
I had been looking for a step stool that was preferably made of metal, small but sturdy and without the usual tall handle. All I saw were the plastic one steps. I couldn't believe it when I found this while roaming through the store for the very first time. My mouth dropped and I actually said to myself, OMG! I bought it right away and I love it. It's so easy to use.
