Confer Pool Entry System - Double
I built them in one day. I needed a friend to help lift the one half into the pool.
They were a little heavy to adjust the height once I got them in the pool. There was a learning curve about getting them good and level, so that the two staircases can be attached with good stability.
The "non-entrapment step facing" and "the skids" on the bottom of both sides should be installed outside of the pool, and secured with a little tape until you have the steps installed well.
Once the stairs are in you will not be able to adjust the liner, so be completely ready to place the steps where you want them.
Mom/Granny went swimming today and did great. She was fully in control all the way into the pool and all the way out to the sidewalk.

excellent for safety and ease
I have had these steps / ladder for 8+ years...NO rust or weak steps...Comes spotlessly clean with hose or powerwasher...The security of ease of entry and exiting of pool is 2nd to none...There is no way to have entrapment when in the pool...This may cost more initially but the durability and comfort are worth it and in the long run very cost effective...Extra bonus that the gate locks - very important for insurance purposes....

These stairs do come with the safety gate even though the product description states that it can be purchased separately. These stairs are very well built and seem like they will last for a very long time. They are also very nice looking compared to the cheaper stairs. The only cons were the pirce and the fact that putting them together was a bit of a pain. It takes two people minimally.
