Unlock the hinges by pushing straight in on the palm buttons until they stay in the open (unlocked) position on both hinges. To lock, move the ladder into the desired position. The hinge locks are spring-assisted, and will spring into the closed (locked) position when hinge is rotated into the next ladder position.
NOTE: If there is pressure on the hinge lock mechanism, it will be difficult to unlock the hinge. To relieve pressure, simply adjust one half of the ladder back and forth until the hinge lock moves with minimal force. DO NOT FORCE HINGE LOCK in or out with any tools as it will cause
permanent damage to the hinge mechanism. It should never require more than light pressure to unlock the hinge if the ladder is aligned properly.
WARNING: ALWAYS MAKE SURE BOTH HINGE LOCKS ARE COMPLETELY LOCKED BEFORE CLIMBING THE LADDER.
FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH.

General Operating Safety Tips
- Little Giant Ladder Systems assumes no liability for damage or injury that may result from failing to follow all instructions correctly.
- Select ladder size to reach work without climbing above the highest standing level or over-reaching. Never tie or fasten ladders together to gain additional height.
3 Weight of user, tools, and materials shall not exceed the OSHA and ANSI Type IAA 375 lb [170 kg] working load.
- DANGER! METAL CONDUCTS ELECTRICITY!
Check for wires before using or moving the ladder. Keep away from all wires. Use a fiberglass or wood ladder if working with or around electricity.
- Inspect the ladder before use. Do not use ladders with missing or damaged parts. Make sure locks and moving parts are in good working order and replace heavily worn feet and illegible labels.
- Keep ladder and hinges clean from unsafe materials and free of slippery substances.
- Set ladder feet on a firm and stable surface, with rungs level side-to-side. Maintain a distance of no less than two inches [5 cm] of clearance between ladder feet and edge of surface. Do not place in front of unlocked doors opening toward ladder.
- Do not use on slippery surfaces without securing the ladder from movement.
- To protect children, do not leave the ladder set up and unattended.
- Do not use ladders if your judgement or balance is reduced by age, health, alcohol or drugs.
- Face the ladder and use both hands when climbing up or down. Remove jewelry, and wear clean slip-resistant work shoes. Use extreme caution getting on and off ladder.
- Lean into or hold onto ladder to maintain three points of contact while working.
- Do not over-reach. Keep the ladder close to your work and keep your body centered between side rails. Climb down and move the ladder as needed. Use care if pushing or pulling to the side.
- Do not climb on or off the ladder from the side unless it is secured against tipping or sideward motion.
- When possible, have another person hold the ladder.
- To avoid pinching, keep clothing, jewelry, and body parts out of all moving mechanisms.
- Do not use ladders in high winds or storms.
- Do not spend long periods of time on a ladder without regular breaks.
- Never drop or apply an impact load to a ladder.
Stepladder Mode Safety Tips
- Do not walk or move the ladder while standing on it.
- Do not stand on or climb above the second rung from the top of the ladder. Do not straddle over ladder top. Do not sit on any part of the ladder.
Straight Ladder Mode Safety Tips
- When using your ladder in the straight ladder mode, stake the feet to the ground and tie down the top for extra security. Extend the ladder at least three feet [1 m] above supporting roof or eve.
- Do not stand on or climb above the third rung from the top of the ladder. If accessing a roof, do not lean or push on the top of the ladder, which can cause the bottom to move. Do not step on rungs above the top support.
- Do not allow the full weight of the ladder to fall on the hinges as the ladder folds from the straight ladder mode to the stepladder mode.
- Do not use the ladder as a brace, plank, platform, or hoist.
