[ whirring ] >> hi. i'm paul. now, we all know how important it is to keep our homes clean for our families. that's why we spend so much time and money trying to get the dirt out of our houses. but what if i showed you a fast and affordable way to keep most of that dirt from getting inside in the first place? here it is -- the worx air. now, don't think of this as just some an ordinary blower. think of it as a way to keep all the main entrances of your home dirt-free. and i'm gonna show you just how simple it is to use. normally to do this, you'd have
4:02 am
to use a broom or something with a cord or gas tank, but those are too much of a hassle, so you put off doing it. and all that dirt gets tracked right into the house. in fact, 85% of the dirt in your house is tracked in from the outside. but with the worx air, what i just did out here in a few seconds not only made the outside of my house look great it'll make the inside of the house cleaner, too, and save tons of time vacuuming. in other words, with the worx air, in just minutes, you can create a clean zone all around your home so dirt and pollen never even make it through the door. and that's number one of the top three amazing things the worx air can do -- create a clean zone. we're gonna show you all three top things during this program. but first we're gonna visit a guy who already owns the worx air. he's a big fan and uses it all the time. but let's see what happens when we introduce him to the new attachments. so, come on. let's go make a house call. here we go.
4:03 am
hey. >> hi. >> how are you? i'm paul. >> paul, jeff. >> nice to meet you. i hear you enjoy using the worx air. >> i have enjoyed it. yeah. >> show me your technique here. >> well, i generally start, you know, back here to blow it away from the house. and i just kind of move that way. >> you found it had enough power? >> oh, yeah. this is so cool. i can go all the way around the sidewalk and around the pool all the patio surfaces, the driveway. no cord, no nothing. can't use a broom. can't use a rake. but this works great. i like to use it when i get back from the desert. i just found we can blow it out. that saves time, so i don't have to get the hose out and use water. oh, look at that. >> this is one of our new attachments. think that might work for you. want to give it a shot? >> let's try it. >> what do you think? >> i like it. whoo! >> how do you think this might work? >> this is nice. >> this also works great for cobwebs. >> all right. >> no, we're not done yet. >> ho-ho! >> ho-ho! look at that! >> oh, gosh. i mean, look at all that.
4:04 am
we're ready for a barbecue out here now. >> you know, and you got a clean zone. i like it a lot. >> you know, before, it was clean, but now it's, like, really clean. >> [ laughs ] >> i mean, it really is a difference. yeah. that's nice. >> all right. >> announcer: sweeping is a hassle. corded and gas blowers are a pain. wet/dry vacs take forever and are frustrating to use. no wonder there are so many chores we put off. now there's a tool that makes all those jobs faster, easier, and more efficient than ever before -- the worx air. with eight attachments, it's the most versatile sweeper/blower available anywhere. and now for a limited time, you can get the complete worx air system at an incredibly low introductory price. call or go online right now to find out how. >> i was skeptical because it is so lightweight, and i'm thinking, "oh, well, it's cute but what is it gonna do?" it's incredibly effective. >> i feel like it's a household tool. he feels like it's one of his tools, so that's -- >> no, it's one of my tools. >> [ laughs ] so that's what's good about it
4:05 am
is it's good for both of us. >> we use it everywhere. i blow off the roof with it. i blow out the gutters with it. >> if i can keep the debris off the deck or the front porch, it keeps it from getting tracked into the house. [ whirring ] >> when it comes to creating a clean zone, there's no place more time-consuming than the garage. why? because old-fashioned cleanup tools can't maneuver around all that stuff. you have to take the time to move it out of the way so you can clean. a broom is just too much trouble, and you'll never get all of the dirt. with a wet/dry vac, the cord gets in the way. it tips over. there's only so much it can reach. then you have to put everything back. all that takes a lot of time. but look how fast and easy it is to do the same job with the worx air. you don't have to move a thing. you can even clean around bikes, under the car, and in hard-to-reach places. so, now this garage is a clean zone. it took just a few minutes and without any wasted time or energy. and that's the second of the top
4:06 am
three amazing things the worx air can do -- move the dirt, not your stuff. just think how much time and hassle it'll save you. >> we have a gas blower. >> yeah. >> which i don't even touch just because it's big and cumbersome. >> this is much quieter. >> by the time you go grab an extension cord, get it all laid out and everything else, the worx blower's done the job for you. >> right now, we actually have this stored on a hook on our back porch. there's a broom that's been shoved to the corner, and then there's this. >> i'd rather do anything, really, than sweep, so this is a lot better. it's really fast. >> it's just proved to be a really handy tool. >> this 20-volt battery has enough power that you can do the entire yard with it or blow off a whole bunch of patios or a whole bunch of decks. >> i can go the whole day and do whatever i need to do, and i'm done. >> this and some safety glasses is pretty much all i need. >> it made yard work and house work fun. what does that? [ laughs ] >> less debris is tracked in just because our steps and our back-porch area's clean, so i
4:07 am
wish we could use it in the whole inside of the house. [ both laugh ] >> it's never been faster or easier to keep outside dirt from getting inside. and when you're making your clean zone, don't forget the doormats. they're your first line of defense. but once they get filled up with dirt, there goes your clean zone. but with the worx air, you can clean them thoroughly, even underneath, without moving them. [ whirring ] [ whirring stops ] just like that. so, you've seen two of our top three amazing things the worx air can do to keep your home cleaner. and we'll show you the third in just a few minutes. so, stick around. i'm gonna take this baby on the road while you get a chance to see how easy and affordable it is to own the worx air. this really will be the tool you'll use every day. >> announcer: it's the end of blisters and back aches from pushing a broom. the hassles of corded blowers and wet/dry vacs are over, too.
4:08 am
and for all but the biggest yard cleanups, there's no need to fire up that loud, messy gas blower. the worx air starts instantly and puts out a 120-mile-per-hour concentrated stream of air that moves even the toughest dirt and debris. it's lightweight, durable, and powered by a high-capacity lithium-ion battery. and when it comes to power and run time, the worx air delivers. ordinary batteries start to lose power right away, but lithium batteries run at full power all the way to the end of the charge. and the new worx air high-capacity battery has a capacity rating almost twice that of previous worx machines. and it stays charged for up to one year when not in use, so it will always be ready to go when you are at the touch of a button. the worx air is not just a single tool but a patented cleaning system that includes eight innovative attachments so there's virtually no job you can't do more quickly and easily than ever before. the long-tube attachment is perfect for general cleaning of outdoor surfaces so you can
4:09 am
create a clean zone around your home and keep dirt outside where it belongs. the dust-brush attachment releases stubborn cobwebs and debris. a compact tube, extension hose dust nozzle, and detail brush can be used in countless combinations to clean even the hardest-to-reach spaces. but the worx air is not just for cleaning. the wide nozzle makes drying your car or motorcycle a breeze. there's even an inflator attachment to blow up toys and other inflatables. the worx air is the tool you'll want to use so often, you'll wonder how you lived without it. the worx sweeper/blower was already a terrific value at just $119. but now, for less than what you'd pay for a single tool, you can get the all-new worx air system with eight amazing attachments as part of this exclusive tv offer -- the long tube, the dust brush, the compact tube, extension hose dust nozzle, and detail brush, the wide nozzle, and the inflator nozzle. if you bought these attachments separately, you'd pay $50. but they're yours absolutely free if you order today. and as if that's not already an

4:11 am
with just one charge of the 20-volt max lithium battery, i can blow up this entire kids bounce house and have power left over to do it five more times! now, that's what i call power. now let's make another house call. >> hi. cathy. nice to meet you, paul. >> very nice to meet you. >> how you doing, paul? i'm james. >> james. nice to meet you. i understand you guys use the worx air? >> mm-hmm. >> yes. >> well, what is your favorite place to use it? >> mine is the garage. before, i'd have my broom and i'd pull stuff out and sweep and i'd put it all back. so, this just makes it easier for me. >> the best thing about it is, it's got enough power to blow out. i like that. >> right. >> i'm not, you know, having to really take the two hands and work at it. i can just...pshoo. >> it's a great product. plenty of juice. run time -- great. one good charge is enough for me. craftsmanship-wise, they did a great job with it. you can tell it was well-designed. >> let me show you something. we got some new attachments. [ whirring ] >> oh, look at that. the thing about it is, hands. but this right here, i can actually maneuver.
4:12 am
>> right. with one hand. >> great job. [ whirring ] >> how's that working for you? >> oh, yeah. i like it. i like it a lot. that's where i like to use it -- in the vents. gets all those nooks and crannies. >> yeah, it does. turn it on. [ whirring ] >> that's got it. look at that. >> yeah. so, this was done in seconds. >> let me show you one more thing we have here -- a deflator. >> okay. turn it on. [ whirring ] wow, that's cool. that's really neat. i like that. >> i love the additional attachments. it obviously gives me more options. >> it gives you so many other options inside the house, for your car, getting rid of the dust and the spider webs in the corners. >> so, you think you might want to keep that? >> yeah. >> yes. >> yeah? [ laughter ] [ whirring ] >> announcer: have you noticed how the worx air can go places
4:13 am
no cleaning tool has gone before -- all those nooks and crannies that never get clean because your broom, your vacuum, and your heavy-duty blower could never fit into those tight spaces? well, that's the third of the top three amazing things the worx air can do -- clean in between. >> worx thought of everything when they thought of these attachments. >> instead of having multiple clean-up tools -- the broom, the dustpan, the vacuum, whatever -- one device takes care of everything. >> it really is a multi tool. >> when you use the air pressure plus this brush, it really does a good number of breaking those spider webs and stuff loose. >> he came home from work and saw me cleaning the gutters. it was an experience for him. it was like... ♪ ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh ♪ >> this is the air inflator. >> this is the detail tool, if you want to use the worx air to clean your car. >> i use this for blowing the dust out of the engines. >> i actually cleaned all the blinds this morning with it. so i thought, "that's a pretty cool attachment." >> when you have a cleaning tool as fast and as maneuverable as
4:14 am
the worx air, you'll love a challenge. and we found one. it's a multi-story home with four outdoor flights of stairs decks on three levels, and lots of entry points where dirt can get tracked inside. you'd never lug a heavy blower to a third-floor deck, but at less than five pounds, the worx air makes it a breeze. and look how easy it is to navigate down all these flights of stairs without a cord to slow you down. the worx air is so quiet, you can clean outside the bedroom without disturbing anyone. two front decks done in a fraction of the time it would take with a broom. and on the ground-floor patio, you don't have to move anything out of the way. the worx air cleans around and under obstacles. now the front porch is a cleanzone, and so is the walkway, driveway, even under the car, and down to the sidewalk. and you still have power to spare. [ whirring ] seven cleanzones created in under eight minutes. >> all right, so this is our tool. it's called the worx air. it's got a lithium battery, so no cords, no gas.
4:15 am
give it a try. see what you think. [ whirring ] >> wow. this is cool. i like this one. it's really good. it's an excellent product. >> very lightweight. really easy on your wrist. >> oh, yeah. i like that. [ whirring ] >> so far, what do you think? >> i think i like it. >> here's another way you could use that. >> oh, okay. yeah, that's even lighter. yeah, i like that. the brush helps kind of scrape away a little bit of the top dust. there's gonna be a little dust coming here. and it doesn't seem to have lost any power. i have a motorcycle that's got air vents. in around the instrument cluster, trying to get down in it, get all that dust out of there. yeah, i love the portability of this thing. it's light enough to almost put in your pocket. >> okay, so when you come out here to sweep, how is that for you? >> there's a lot of stuff in the way. especially 'cause we can't move the tables. >> give this a try. >> there we go. [ whirring ] [ chuckles ] now, this is like a tornado. oh, yeah. yeah, i like the brush.
4:16 am
fun to clean with. i don't have to get all dirty. [ chuckles ] >> we're gonna test this blower. i have a lot of stuff in between those rocks over there. it's lighter than the one that i have. i like that already. so it's lighter, more versatile, and it's probably as powerful as the one that i have now, and there's no cord. i've lived her 11 years. i've never cleaned my mailbox. so now i did it. >> cool. [ whirring ] >> it's nice and light, and you don't have to work around with a cord. [ whirring ] okay. ah. so a little scrubber on it. [ whirring ] >> what about, like, the top of your mailbox or ledges on your door, any of that stuff? >> you noticed. [ chuckles ] [ whirring ] >> there's a few more attachments. but before you do that, what would you use normally for this? >> a broom. it would take a lot longer and wouldn't get it as thoroughly. you don't even have to bend over and get underneath the chairs. and that would be great for getting around the windows or something. >> well, i don't know. might it be? >> i don't know. >> how could we find out? >> is there anything around,
4:17 am
like, these, like, seals or anything like that, that needs to be cleaned? >> let cole give it a try. >> yeah, there you go. it's your car. >> feel like i've just been duped here. >> yeah, look at all that. >> 'cause i'm cleaning her car. >> i love it. >> that's pretty good. >> you think could lift this mulch off the gravel without blowing your gravel out? >> that's pretty nice. >> is this something that you would find useful? >> yeah, absolutely. it makes such a big difference. >> yeah, i agree. >> you would do it more often. >> yeah. >> 'cause it's... >> easier and faster. >> so we get one, right? >> [ laughs ] >> we get one for the demo? >> if i did -- >> we got a whole backyard you can take care of, too. [ laughs ] >> you've already seen how the worx air can do more cleanup jobs than your broom, wet/dry vac, and gas or electric blower combined. but this is going to blow you away. this optional gutter cleaner kit let's you use the worx air to keep your gutters clean, too without climbing a ladder. so now it's easy to keep your gutters unclogged so they won't overflow and damage your foundation. when you order your worx air, be sure to ask how you can add the gutter cleaner kit at a special price.

there are well over a million proud owners of the little giant ladder system the little giant ladder system has one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any product on the market today. coming up, we'll show you how you can get your own little giant ladder system. with the little giant, one ladder will do it all. wife likes it. husband likes it. the neighbor likes it. it's light and yet it's sturdy and strong. it's the safest, most reliable best investment you can make in a ladder. period. we're excited to have with us today the founder of the little giant ladder system, the ladder man himself, our friend hal wing. richard, how are you? hal. robin. hal, good to see you. i'm so excited to be here. well, we're glad to have you. thank you. now, i'm sure our viewers out there are trying to figure out what makes this ladder so special. can you show them just how special this ladder is? absolutely. i'd love to. i guess the best place to start is right here with the hinge. it's the strongest point of the ladder. it will hold up to 1200 pounds and it's so easy to use.
4:33 am
just by using the hinge, you can put it in the storage position or you can open it back up just like that. and the nice thing about it is it won't close up on you, it won't pull apart on you, and there are no spreader bars to get in your way. it's all done right here in the hinge. now, by using that hinge combined with these lock tabs you're looking at not just one ladder, but you're looking at a four foot, a five foot, a six foot, and it's a seven foot. so basically what you have is four different a-frames right inside this one ladder. and the beautiful part about that is you have rungs up both sides. you don't have to move the ladder so often and each rung will hold 300 pounds. now, if you have a sloping ground, or a ramp, or even staircases, you can adjust it just that easy-right over the stairs, in the middle of the stairs, at the top of the stairs, the bottom of the stairs. and again, one of the worst things that you can do when you have an a-frame position, the higher you go, the further away
4:34 am
you are from your work. so how do we solve that? well, with the little giant we come down we put it in what we call the 90-degree position. robin, would you mind climbing this for us? i think you've used this before. lots of times. more times than i can count and i get up right here and i can do a lot of painting. see that? she's right up next to her work. she doesn't have to reach, she doesn't have to stretch, and she's not in danger. ok, going just a little bit further. everybody has to get up and clean the rain gutters once in a while or reach that second story window. so with the little giant you just go back to your hinge allow them to snap into place, and walk the ladder out. and what we have here is the finest 17-foot extension ladder you're ever going to get your hands on. you have a wide flare at the top. you have a wide flare at the bottom. you have nice, soft, rubber, non-skid feet at both ends. it won't mar the walls. it won't let you slip. and then you can bring it down one rung at a time just like this and adjust it wherever you need it. you get the length that you need for the job at hand. the other thing that's nice
4:35 am
about this-have you seen any ropes or pulleys on this ladder that hang up and get you tripped up? with our design, you don't need those so you come done a rung at a time every place you stop. and even if you miss the holes they snap in automatically. and then you go back to your hinge, drop this down, and just when you've seen everything that a ladder can do, let me show you this. again you have to go back to the hinge, pull out your lock tabs give it a nice tug, and you'll notice it has these non-slip feet on the bottom which makes of course, a very nice a-frame trestle. and then, if you connect them together with the lock tabs, you have a very nice base for scaffolding. richard, would you mind handing me that aluminum plank? now, you make this too don't you? we make these too. this is an option. now, think about this-you can make this as long as you want. you don't have to move that ladder every few feet. you can do the whole side of a house if you want to. do you want to climb up here with me? oh yes.
4:36 am
actually, this is my favorite part of the ladder. i get so much work done this way. come on up. are you coming up here or what? how much is this built for? i mean, how much weight? i don't know how much you weigh. i'm not going to ask. but you're going to be well below the half-ton, or thousand pound capacity. well, i'm just about 150 pounds here. now our ladders will hold 300 pounds a piece on each of the rungs. it doesn't even bend. it's very secure. no, it doesn't bend, doesn't move, doesn't twist. [chuckling] now really folks what you've got here is the good, bad, and the ugly and i'll let you make that decision. you just hold it back a little bit and it slides right out. and then when you want to click it up into place, you just lift up the other end and it clicks into place. i couldn't believe it. you don't have to do it, it does it itself. the little giant has a really great capability. it will fit in my car. it can fit in the back seat, we can shut the door and move it any place we want. robin, let's show the folks at home the difference between an
4:37 am
ordinary ladder and the little giant ladder. this is an ordinary ladder rail, a cross section. slide that over the end here. let's see what you can do with a little bit of leverage. ok. [shocked] look at that! that's a little too easy. look at that. it's crumbling right there in the middle. [chuckling] it doesn't take much to make it happen. and again, you don't want to be very high in the air with something like that. that's amazing. ok, let's do the same test with a little giant rail. this is a cross section. as you can see it's a box frame construction. alright, we'll insert that in the clamp. just put the leverage on there. ok, just go for it. alright. and just twist it like...[struggling]... oh, come on. here, let me try. let me get the bottom. give him a little help. [all laughing] this is just not going. we can't. there's no way. i would much rather have twisted this one. i daresay that that pretty well sums it up. it does. i would think so. this thing is strong and it
4:38 am
takes a lot of abuse. it's solid. it doesn't sway. it doesn't move around at all. the sturdiness gives me the extra security knowing, "hey i'm not going to fall off this thing." odds are you already have a ladder. most people do. but the facts are you will get more done easier, quicker, and safer with your little giant ladder. and if you've ever tried to work around stairs you know that's nearly impossible to do with an ordinary ladder. but with a little giant, it's as easy as working on flat ground. the little giant just makes sense. it's the strongest, safest, most versatile ladder ever made. and with the special offer and the no-risk guarantee there's no need to wait. call and order yours now. well, when the little giant came i cut that piece of the box off, nailed it up on my garage wall so then i could always remember the different ways i could use it. the little giant helped me paint my kitchen. i was able to angle the ladder on the stairs and i was able to climb up there. i felt sturdy and steady and i was able to paint the corners
4:39 am
and the top and the ceiling without a problem. the little giant ladder has some of the most demanding customers in the world. all branches of our u.s. military have purchased and are using the little giant ladder systems in a wide variety of applications. one of the applications we use it is at the launch pad. in order to get the little giant ladder down to the place where we actually are going to use it, it's got to go through some very small confined spaces. so we get it down into the module and then actually fold it out to its full size. the little giant ladder is so versatile that it basically accommodated all of our unusual tasks. little giant ladders are very durable. they're dependable, a very rigid ladder. i've got some pretty big operators and then you add all their gear and you're look at about a 300 pound guy. they're very structurally sound and safe to be able to get where they need to go when they've got a weapon in their hand. i own three of them. i'm a general contractor and i wouldn't own any other ladder. i'm a general contractor and i've owned my own personal little giant for 25 years. i'm the rescue captain in my volunteer fire department and i
4:40 am
keep a 17-footer on my truck. we use it for everything. this ladder is second to none and i would never trust the safety of my men to something of lesser quality. i'm a little bit of big guy so the security and safety of it just blew me away. it's very stable, very safe, easy to get up and down on. the rungs don't hurt your feet. do you feel comfortable up there? oh yeah. can you shake a little bit? i can shake a lot. it's not going anywhere. it's awesome. i weigh 380 pounds and i'm not afraid. you'll be amazed with the strength, safety, and versatility of this ladder. and the little giant weighs in at just 35 pounds. that's less than your 3 year old. with the little giant, you'll have many jobs completed in the time you used to spend figuring out how to get those ordinary ladders into the house. i'm 73 years old and i can get on that ladder and do anything i
4:41 am
want because it's safer than walking up stairs i think. if you want to change a light bulb i don't care how high it is. in my house i can get it and we have some pretty tall ceilings. i lift it around. if i want to fix a curtain or hang a drape or do anything i've got my little giant. it's just the perfect thing. anybody could use this ladder. you're only pushing in two red knobs and you're only pulling out a couple of bars in the ladder extension. there are only so many moving parts. i mean, it's not difficult at all. if you see it done once, you know how to do it. there's no magic to it. a quality ladder really isn't a luxury. with all you do, it's a necessity. think about the times you could have used a little giant. this is one purchase you'll be glad you made. you'll use your little giant for the rest of your life. it's an investment to last a lifetime. so we highly recommend that you order yours right now.

4:49 am
easy to use. very easy. and now pull it back up, click it together. i'm going to let robin show you how easy it is to move from one project to the next. look at that. i love this. isn't that nice? just wheel that around wherever you want to go. it's just so easy to transport. there you go. you don't just have to push your husband around anymore. just push it around. robin, i need a helping hand. ok, you got it. ok, we have here a comfort platform-the only articulated ladder in the entire world that has that. and you can't use it unless you have something to hang to. so what we have here is a very nice safety grip. the safety grip fits in here like that. now i have something to hang onto. now folks, i've been doing ladders for 40 years, ok? and i've never felt this safe and this secure on any ladder ever. until you feel it yourself you're never really going to understand how totally secure and comfortable you feel up here. this is absolutely wonderful. now, when you're going to do a
4:50 am
job you need to take tools and equipment with you. well, aha, now we go from a safety rail to an air deck where we have all kinds of places to put attachments. justin, come over. make yourself useful as well as good-looking. [robin laughing] you know what? we're the only ladder in the world that has a place to put your cup. i love that. ok, there you go. hey, give me some stuff. give me a hammer. give me a drill. there you go. here's a drill driver. give me a screwdriver. how about a screwdriver? give me whatever you've got. does your wife know that's missing? [chuckling] anyway, it's the greatest ladder in the world folks. and you've got room for everything. and now, where do we put the paint? i have an answer for that too. we call this the fuel tank and it's much much more than just something to put paint into. let me have a brush, ok? ok, there's the brush. the first thing that's very very frustrating to me is you drop this brush, it goes down in the paint, and you have to fish it out. not with this. you've got a nice little magnet and it hangs onto it right there. and with the roller, voila!
4:51 am
and you know what folks? it holds an entire gallon! think about that. instead of just a quart that you're running up and down the ladder trying to get and dripping all over the place, you've got it all right here. and it's not just for paint. you can pick fruit and put it in there, you can use your cleaning supplies, you can even put some of the tools i used a moment ago in it and there's more. i'm going to let robin do the cleanup. so robin it's up to you. and i actually really hate the cleanup. but this fuel tank is made out of a special material that allows me to make that cleanup so easy. so all i need to do is now just peel this paint away just like this. isn't this amazing? it makes it so easy that i don't even mind painting anymore. isn't that a lot easier than trying to strip one of those things out with paint thinner? [impressed] isn't that incredible? wow! look at how clean that is. it's as clean as new. and you know, you can put fruit in it, you can put tools in it.
4:52 am
it's just wonderful. i'm going to remove the outer base totally off of the ladder. i'm going to hand that to you. can you take that? ok. wow, that's so light. and then we're going to go back down to the other side and remove again the outer base. thank you very much. we are also going to include a pair of trestle brackets. what i can do with those, first slip one in this side, put one in this side, and then you take the two-thank you, robin. you're welcome. take the two and put them together. reinsert and would you adjust that over there for me, robin? there you go. now we have a nice scaffolding. and it's wonderful. come on up here with me. ok. now you don't have to move the ladder every few feet. you have a very nice scaffolding system built right in your ladder. when it comes time to move ordinary ladders, you know how you have a tendency to want to drag them? well with the little giant xtreme, you don't have to do that. you just tilt it back onto its
4:53 am
wheels and let the wheels do the work. you just roll it into position and voila! you know what's great about the little giant? you can go from four foot seven to a seventeen foot extension ladder with ease. show them how it's done, robin. oh, i do this all the time when i need to get up on the roof and do my christmas lights. i just push the hinge in on one side, walk under it, and- the only ladder in the world that you can walk under that gives you good luck. [robin laughs] now, what we're asking her to do is a pretty tall order for a very petite woman. watch what we do here. hal, could you be the house? i certainly can. i'll be your house, ok? [chuckling] ok, you be my house. and then i just walk it up rung by rung and it's that easy. and i feel such a sense of accomplishment. wow, isn't that great? forty years of american craftsmanship. we've been building ladders for 40 years and making it better every year. nobody can even come close to duplicating that.
4:54 am
