Every time I've ordered from Tanga, it's taken weeks to get my product.

Just a few bucks more at Amazon [amazon.com], with free prime shipping.


Unfortunately, Fakespot gives it an F rating for fake reviews.

Even worse, this ladder seems downright dangerous, according to the reviews on Amazon that aren't "Pay to play" reviews."

Used one of these before, and the joints feel flimsy (whole thing does); felt like is was going to break or collapse the whole time I was on it. This was just using it as a ladder, I would not trust it as a scaffold.

For reference, I am 5'5" and 140 pounds... so not pushing the weight limit at all.

Absolutely amazing that you can buy this at this price point with shipping included. Makes you wonder what the manufacturing cost of this is.

Aluminum cost around $0.75/lb and the weight of the ladder is around 24 lbs. Cost of product maybe around $25 to make with labor.

Casey Neistat has this. I would have thought, this costs $300+

have one of those for about 15-20 years now. pretty sure not the same brand, but same concept, and visual look of the hinges.
Works perfectly, each time is needed and does not take too much space in the garage.
if you can get ladder like this one, but from the place where you can easily return it - get it, try it, love it. and if not return it.
My only beef with if that ladder itself is a bit narrow and you cannot put two 2*8 on it to create nice scaffold.
it always feels a bit narrow.

Thanks for the video. It looks like it is very easy and safe to operate. ? ? ?

This seems like something you would buy if you wanted to commit suicide, but you weren't into planning. Just use the ladder a few times until you eventually end up impaled on a piece of it. Thanks China!

Because you just buy aluminum already formed into ladder parts and then Chinese children assemble it? Please tell me you don't actually think your post made any sense.

So do you know the answer to the original question? Educate me Teacher...

Here is the list of the cost of metal.

Well, I'm not a teacher, but it really doesn't matter, because I'm not sure it's possible to educate you. Firstly, there was no question, so I can't answer it, since it doesn't exist. Secondly, you're attempting to determine the manufacturing costs for an aluminum ladder manufactured in China, by using the price per pound that a Maryland metal recycler pays for scrap aluminum. I can't even begin to explain how completely nonsensical and idiotic that is. Then, you've somehow decided that it costs just a few more dollars to assemble these pieces of scrap aluminum in Maryland into a ladder in China, and then ship it to the United States. Meanwhile, everyone with sense realizes that scrap metal prices paid by metal recyclers aren't the prices paid by manufacturers for the metals used in their manufacturing. We also realize that there is a factory with big machines that form this metal into the pieces used to assemble the final product. Those pieces are then assembled into the final product and boxed for shipping. Because of the huge numbers of the product being manufactured, as well as the cheap manufacturing costs in China, which includes cheap labor, they are able to sell these at a relatively low price, when compared to higher quality products built elsewhere, with better quality control, better materials, more highly-skilled and trained labor, more regulations, and the related higher costs.

In short, building garbage in China is cheap, so the garbage is then cheap to buy. I hope this helped you understand better, though I'm sure it flew right over your head, and you'll just post some defensive nonsense in response, while also attempting to insult me and failing. Good luck with your GED. You can do it!
