Essentially, they work in the same way as an extension ladder, with two or more ladder sections that slide past each other and lock into place. Impact driver - this is my preferred option to make sure the screw head dips easily, but you need to go easy on the trigger to prevent them from sinking too much.

Loft ladders and hatch products can be purchased separately or in combination, so the loft ladder comes already attached to the loft hatch using a safe drop-down mechanism.Highly Insulated Loft Hatches:If energy efficiency is a priority for you, our highly insulated loft hatches are the ideal choice.

Do you know if these are readily available (and if so from where) or would I be best with a magnetic clip like you suggested (and where do I get these?
