Easily assembled very solid
so far this system is great it is solid and easily assembled the only downside was with some of the hardware very small and not very secure in holding the top step in place they have fallen out twice we are trying to find something more secure in holding the top step on otherwise it is a great secure ladder
Happy pool owners

Made my pool functional again!!
Bought his ladder over a stock above ground pool ladder that was way to dangerous to use. This ladder has allowed my family to use our year old pool without worrying about the ladder collapsing or having to have a second person to assist getting into our 18' x 48" Intek pool
The ladder seems to be very well made and very comfortable to use but even after putting 12 small bricks in the available spaces, the ladder would not remain on the bottom of the pool. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that this was a replacement ladder and I used the same deck fitting to mount it. From what I can see that should not have made a difference.

great ladder for the price
we are enjoying are new ladder and the mat; It looks and feels real nice. My children are always on it and jumping off of it. My husband is over 250lbs and its easy for him to get in and out of the pool. We are adding on to are deck so we are going to need another ladder.

A Huge Difference
I bought this ladder to replace the standard gray one that came with my out of ground pool. The original ladder looked cheap and tacky. Since my out of ground pool is sunk into a large deck with planters and palm shrubs the new ladder adds a definite "in ground" appearance. The ladder also provides easy and safe access to the pool and is very sturdy. I also found that by not inserting the screws into the base mounting I can easily lift the ladder out to allow the pool cleaner to do its work

We own a Jack Russell that loves to swim. In March of 2009 we purchased a home with a pool. We feared our dog would jump in without our knowledge and possibly drown. We needed something to assist our dog to exit the pool. I figured someone would have made such a device so I started my search and found this great product. We have had it a few weeks and my dog goes in and out of the pool at will. It took use only 10 Min to train him.

Inexpensive but effective
This is an inexpensive option for families with small animals. Our Bichon/Poodle was quick to adapt to the ramp. It also provide some peace of mind with our cats. The only drawback so far was adjusting the ropes that secure the ramp. It took a bit of time but they stay put when tied off.

Absolute need for pet owners!
I lost a dog in our pool and have lived in fear until finding the Skamper Ramp. We purchased the large one and have installed and taught our 50 pound dog to use - which she does with ease! I now have peace of mind that I hopefully will never live through that horror again. If you have an inground pool with only ladders - this is a must!
Works fine for my application.
Quality is fine. Shipping bout
Killed the package though.

Bought this specifically so I could cut off a few inches from the back of the "U" to accommodate a taller height from the bottom of my pool to the surface of the deck I built over the top of it - worked like a charm. A little difficult to put together because the holes on the steps didn't quite line up with the holes in the rails, but it was nothing a little persistence couldn't fix. Overall a big improvement in quality over the ladder that came with the pool when I bought it.

This is a really great ladder. Went together very easily. Step treads are nicer on the feet than our old ladder. Love it!!!
When we bought our pool I knew we woud want stairs, but spending another $500.00 wasn't in the budget. So we waited a few weeks. 5 grandkids under 2, pregnant moms and we aren't getting any younger. I looked everywhere to see what there was, that we could afford. THIS WAS THE WINNER! and we absoutley made a great investment. Getting in and out of the pool is easy, Handing small kids up to waiting arms is easy and a safe landing for the little ones learning to swim. Besides getting the pool this

Love These Steps
Over all these stairs are a marked improvement over a ladder. As I've read in other reviews the railings or handles are a little flimsy, but you really don't need to pull hard on them if you are able to walk up and down stairs normally. The manufacturer states to put 40 lbs. of sand in the stairs before putting them in your pool. My husband and I did not do this because we knew we would never be able to get them back out again on our own. Instead we let them fill with water as we put them in the
... read more water, then I got 40 lbs. of plastic coated weights and tied them to the sides of the stairs with marine rope. Worked great all summer! We just now untied the weights and pulled the stairs out to close the pool for the season. Very easy! Thanks for a great product!

Love these steps
We have had these stairs in our pool for over 13 years. I bought the original ones from another retailer for a lot more money 13 years ago. We broke them this year because we didn't have the man power to lift and should have had someone in the water helping to get them out. These steps have been great for babies, they have been through 5 grandchildren and my 90 year old mother really loves them, she can get in and out of the pool very easily which is why I am purchasing the same stairs as I had.
We have had this for a month now and love it, especially when several people are in the pool. It was relatively easy to put together and get in the pool. Stays put since we secure it to our wood deck, but not so sure it would if you did not secure it to something. I will be interested to see how easy it is to get out of the pool for winter storage.

Took about an hour to put together with a rubber mallet. Make sure you get nice dry sand to fill it with. Mine was kind of moist and was getting stuck and not falling to the bottom. I ended up putting them in the pool and they floated. So make sure you really shake the sand down. They look great in my 24ft round.

The curve step system is amazing!
I highly recommend the Curve Step System for anyone that has an above ground pool. They are very well built and the assembly instructions were easy to follow and was as close to trouble free as anything we have ever tried to assemble before.
Our above ground pool is buried approximately 3 ft. in the ground, and this step system makes it effortless to get in and out of the pool.
We are extremely happy with the look of the steps and have received numerous compliments on them!
My husband & I are
... read more very impressed by this product. So much so that he said, "you have to write a review on these so people will know how great these steps are!"
I bought this about a month ago, I like that it is plastic (no rusting). The part of the ladder that is in the water seems to be really sturdy, but the handrails are a little shaky. Wish it would have been sturdier.
