The Intex 36" to 42" Deluxe Pool Ladder comes with easily removable steps that can be detached when your pool is not in use. The front steps quickly detach and are easily removed from the ladder preventing small children from entering an unattended pool. Putting the front steps back onto the ladder is easy. Simply set the steps in the base, then snap and lock the front steps into place. A coated steel frame and hi-impact plastic step construction ensures that you will enjoy this ladder for years to come. Ladder breaks down for easy storage and works with any 36" to 42" deep above ground pool.
