I believe your response is incorrect. If the specs for the platform are 14-5/8 x 15 for the P6208 so how can you say the top won't fit in a 20" wide.

The specs BOTTOM width of the P6208 is 34-1/2, please verify that the TOP dimensions are narrower, the platform specs are 14-5/8 x 15....seems it should fit inside my 20" wide skylight. The skylight opening is 20" wide by 48" rectangle.
Asked by: Keith
On the PD6208 the platform is 16x19.5 once you add the extra width of the rails and guard at the top this would not fit in a 20 inch opening.

Will the platform fit inside a 20 inch wide skylight opening?

Also, is there a store that has this ladder in store stock?
Asked by: Keith
It won't fit in that opening. The P6208 is 34-1/2" wide with a spread of 68"

Sorry to bother you again but I remeasured the width of the skylight opening again and it is 21 inches wide so maybe the 16 x 19-1/2 platform might fi

I can't find any other platform ladders like Werner so I apologize for bugging you again. I wish I could physically see this ladder so I could check the width myself. Don't you think I just might be able to fit the platform into the 21" wide x 48" skylight if the overall measurement of the platform is 16 x 19-1/2 like you said? Also, the bottom of the skylight opening is between 8 feet to 9 feet high. Thank you for your help, Keith.
Asked by: Keith
No problem, you can ask us a question anytime. Please go to the following link, to see the measurements of this ladder. You need to look at the width of the ladder, which is 33-7/8". When it is open, that is what we call the spread and it is 66 5/8". It doesn't matter the measurement of the platform, when figuring if it will work in that space. http://www.wernerco.com/us/en/view/Products/Climbing%20Equipment/Stepladders/P6200/P6208 The overall closed height of the ladder is 10'. Please call Customer Care at 888-523-3370 Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM if you need help with explaining the measurements.

Can you advise to the 3 points of contact in regards to working on a platform ladder facing the steps.

Asked by: Safety
The three points of contact rule is simple—always maintain one hand and two feet, or two hands and one foot, when climbing or descending ladders.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
