Whilst I agree with all the above – I think we’ve missed a small(ish) pointlet along the way.

As I understand it the ladder was rated at 300lb, and had a sticker to say so. Regardless of whether you buy this from a “cheap” shop, regardless of the brand or the place of manufacture, surely in this day and age you ought to be able to trust what the sticker says – I thought we’d done the “you can’t lie to a customer” thing several decades ago.
If this manufacturer accepts that their 300lb ladders don’t work then they need to get them all off the shelves now before someone gets seriously hurt.
