Counterfeit Safe T Climb
September 20, 2010
Unfortunately there is a counterfeit Safe T Climb on the market.
I purchased one of these Chinese made copies only to find that the unauthorized copy has many defects and is, in our professional opinion, dangerous.
The label on the Chinese copy has the name Safe T Climb on it and a false statement that it is a licensed product from Safe T Climb Inc.
This is a lie. The only Safe T Climb that is legal due to US patent law is the Made In USA unit that is manufactured by our company.
Our catalog number for Safe T Climb is STC-1.
The unauthorized copy in some cases has a catalog number of 10840.
It is very likely that someone would get hurt using the faulty device for several reasons.
First of all the hooks do not tighten down which is very important for ladder stability.
Also the legs do not tighten down. It is also very important that the legs tighten down.
It is easy to identify the Chinese copy because it has a mitered corner on one end and a butt-weld on the other end. One of the welds on the butt-welded end is missing.
If you find that you have purchased this copied unit, we strongly advise that you do not attempt to use it.
Feel free to call if you any questions regarding this matter.
