CPSC, Werner Company Announce Recall to Repair Space Master Sliding Attic Ladder

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), The Werner Ladder Company in conjunction with the Kentucky Ladder Company is recalling about 400 Space Master sliding attic ladders. When in use, the ladder can slide down from the attic and then slide back up for storage. The ladder has a simple metal hook to lock the ladder in the stored position. On some ladders, the hook/lock was attached upside down, which could result in the ladder not being properly secured in the storage position. The ladder could become dislodged, slide down, and injure someone.

CPSC and Werner are not aware of any injuries involving the ladders. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

All of the ladders have been marketed under the Werner "Space Master" brand and designated as Model WS2308.

Attic Ladder

Major home center department stores sold the ladder nationwide from January 1997 through May 1997 for about $75.

Consumers should stop using the ladders immediately and call Werner toll-free at (888) 523-3372 for instructions on how to inspect and repair the ladder or write to Werner at 93 Werner Road, Greenville, PA 16125.
