Slim Folding Step Stool
closes fine; really stable
Several reviewers noted that their ladder was quite difficult to close; a big concern but, I took a chance anyway since the step stool was otherwise the best solution I'd found for my purpose.
Happily, mine closes quickly & easily. I lift the ladder, push down on the back of button labeled "press" and gently push the rear legs against my own leg. The close is smooth and quick. I'm so glad because ...
In use, this step stool is especially stable and steady. All four feet sit squarely on the floor & hold well. I can move around on the top step and there is no wiggle, noises, or movement between the parts. It has a low and slim profile for storing and is easy to move around.
It really is a "great" step stool.

Great Step Stool
This is a great Step Stool . Perfect height, folds compactly to put away. It is a little bit tricky to open and close though - that is why I gave it 4 and not 5 stars

I ordered this online but when I went to the store to pick up, it turned out to be more true to the "heavy duty" description than the "slim folding" that I had in mind. I was looking for something that would be compact and light weight to be kept around in the kitchen and could be easily opened up to reach top shelves. This would not serve that purpose.

Overall I think this stool is good. It is definitely slim, but the smoothness from open to close is a bit tricky and sometimes sticky. I'd love for it to simply ease open and closed.
