When finished, the product works as advertised. This took more sweat and blood to put together than I was prepared for. the parts do not fit together that well, I needed a hammer to pound the ladder rails into the top inverted "u" piece. Metal rods were difficult to push through (underneath the steps) and there was one loose metal tag that needed to be pried off with pliers. Other than pictures, instructions are non-existent.
Looks like someone in the Target warehouse tool loose items and threw em in a shipping box. Original box not included and pieces were missing. returned right away and of course, could not get a replacement
