Actually I bought it for a bunk bed. The ladder was missing so I got this instead and I know I can use it for other things when the top bed is not in use. It also serves as a bed side table for the lower bunk and a place to clamp on a night light.
Well, this step stool is a POS. It does fold flat and stores easily - that part of the claim is true. The leg cups are plastic and horribly slippery; I twisted an ankle getting down because the step stool shot off 3 feet away as I was stepping off. The cups are also uneven, and hollow inside, which means making them even or non-slippery is impossible. This ladder is slippery, unstable, and a safety hazard. Get something - anything - else!
