Before ladders, handymen floated up to high places by inhaling lungfuls of helium, causing their underlings to break into giggles when they tried to give directions in a squeaky, high-pitched voice. Get elevation without reaching the upper octaves with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a telescoping ladder with a canvas carrying bag from Extend A Step (up to a $249.99 value). This Groupon includes the cost of Fed Ex ground shipping.
Extend A Step's sturdy aluminum ladder snaps out step-by-step, swiftly telescoping from 2.5 feet to 12.5 feet. At full height, it helps do-it-yourselfers wash windows, paint high ceilings, and evict fairy colonies from gutters—or you can just pop out one or two steps to reach a high cabinet or shelf. After use, the 25-pound climbing aid shrinks down into its canvas carrying case for easy transport. A great housewarming gift, the Extend A Step can hold up to 330 pounds, or roughly 20 baby Extend A Steps.
Though Extend A Step sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
