A: This is a good question. The step stool has an easy release lock, so opening and closing should be rather easy and secure, especially once it's been opened and closed a few times to get the mechanisms broken in a bit. To open or close, you hold the frame with one hand and and pull up or push down with your other hand on the indicated area of the top step. Another consideration would be the weight. Because this unit has a steel frame, it weights just under 14 pounds. We do make an aluminum version that might be easier to maneuver.
