I got this ladder as gift from my parents when I moved into a high-ceiling loft. Maybe the 3rd time I was using it, I was standing on the 5th rung—I weigh about 190—and the left bold snapped right off.
Luckily I caught myself and did not fall. I was not holding anything in my hands at all. I have since inserted a thick screw to hold the run up where the bolt was, but I am worried that this will happen again. I don't use it a lot, but I do use it every so often.
How can this happen with a ladder?
There's even an OSHA inspection sticker! Aren't these things supposed to be inspected for safety?
