One of the step stools that a lot of people buy for their children is storage step stools. When they are buying step stools, they often will look for plastic instead of a wooden step stool. Here is some advice when buying a plastic step stool.
When you are buying a plastic step stool, always check the load rating on it. Sometimes people are buying one that is cheaper to save money. This is often a really big mistake for parents. IF there’s no load rating on the step stool, search for another stool with the load rating. Always do this when looking at children’s step stools. It could save your child from having a nasty accident. A step stool for children’s load rating should be at least 300 pounds. The majority of step stools that are used in the commercial industry have load ratings of at least 500 pounds. The last thing that you want to do is to limit the use of the step stool just to children. You will never know when you might need to use it to put something away or to do chores in the house. So even though it was purchased for a child, get one with a high rating.
