Makes it easier to get into the pool. Weighing it down was a little difficult. Sand in the handles didn't weight it enough so we had to attach a cement block with a ratchet strap to the underside of the steps.
These steps were purchased due to me not being able to get in and out of our above ground pool easily. I was slightly worried when I placed the order that maybe I should have gone somewhere local to buy then, but these are just great. The steps are easy to put together and makes it so much easier on me getting in and out. The rails give you extra security to know that you most likely (unless not paying attention or slip that can't be avoided) will not fall which was my biggest concern. They do have to be weighted down with sand, but that was just a quick run to the hardware store and we were up and running.
The ladder was a pain to put together. The steps were tight and the screw holes slightly misaligned but not enough to be useless. The Bottom step was not tight enough and came loose. Had to rig it to not come loose in the pool. Once it was all together its actually a good product. The overall shopping experience on Overstock was excellent. Got my product quickly and without fuss.
