    What's to keep it from going sideways and folding up while you are on it? Looks like an accident waiting to happen.
    From the time you're born till' you ride in a hearse, there's nothing so bad it couldn't be worse!

    Your weight on the rungs keeps it open and from folding up, because that notch on the top is a stop. Regardless of your design if your ladder goes sideways (unless it's a library one) you're in trouble :-)

    Nearly every fire truck in the country has something similar to this on it, only aluminum. They are called attic ladders. There is a folding latch on the bottom that keeps them from folding up while climbing them.
