D716-2 16 ft Type III Aluminum D-Rung Extension Ladder is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Light Duty Ladder I've owned and used this ladder for about thirty years and have found it to be durable as well as very useful. I bought it at an old time hardware store that has since gone out of business. I logged into this site looking for another one to buy for my son. I weigh in at 230 lbs and have never had an issue. Any time you have twisting or warping in a ladder you are not setting it up the right way and good luck to you. Any tool can be broken when it's abused. It's handy and easy to use. I love mine and would recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too light duty for me Though I am sure it is tested to 200 lbs like they say, this ladder does not inspire confidence. 2 small clips and 2 small hooks held on by one bolt each do not give it a sturdy feel. I weigh184lbs and when I am on it, it twists and the 2 halves look likey might come apart. I use a heavy duty Werner extension ladder with those standard flip-locks and trust it completely. With this one, I will not use it without a heavy duty rope fed through a rung on each half tied tightly. Spend more money

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.
