How far does the LakeEze Ladder sit back on the dock?

The LakeEze Ladder sits back approximately 50” on the dock when in the up position. However, most of this depth is just the handrail portion. It is worth noting that while the ladder may sit back farther than other ladders on the market, it is only taking up this dock space when not in use. When you are on the dock, enjoying lake life, it will be in the water and not taking up much dock space.
