Very convenient and lightweight …only problem I had was that when I was extending the ramp (this was the first time using it) I got my fingers stuck in b/w the two pieces – I scraped up my fingers pretty badly! Just have to be a little careful when adjusting it to its proper length
Was this review helpful to you?
This is the best ramp I have used. Currently I have 4 that I use for a Pot Belly Pig.
This ramp is extremely light weight, easy to extend or close. It has a wavy surface with a non slip tread that is much better then carpet.
This ramp far exceeds the others i have used and the price is extremely reasonable
I ordered and received it in time to use for our 70 lb. dog just after her ACL knee surgery. It has worked well and helped with the extra care needed for dogs during the post-op rehab stages of this type of operation. I needed the ramp just days after it arrived so I did not have time to consider any returns or exchanges, however, there are some major complaints I would like to register now that I have some more time.
#1 – Poor packaging and safety strap design – The packaging of the ramp is probably OK for retail store use, however, the shipper simply slapped a lable on the box and sent it out. During shipment the box tore in several places and the end actually was already opened. Due to the excessive motion and bouncing around the safety strap and catch was already broken upon receipt – the metal snap part was ripped out of the plastic strap.
#2 – Inadequate design of the two plastic slide stops – After only two normal uses, one of the plastic slide stops broke completely off. The other one is loose and also about to fall off. In my opinion a heavy, hard rubber material would work much better than plastic.
#3 – Very sharp aluminum edges – At the top of the side rails, the aluminum is very sharp – right where a dog is likely to step a bit to the side as it nears the top of the ramp. In my opinion, these rails could easily cut a dog’s foot pads and cause serious injury. I have avoided this by covering the ramp top with a heavy towel whenever it is being used. This extra step in protection is not indicated anywhere in the instructions and should net even be necessary with a better design.
