Need a bit of help on my swim ladder

I recently purchased a used Dive N Dog "5 step boarding staircase" and I am going to install under my swim platform but the unit purchased did not come with any attaching hardware. I am sure that I will have to engineer the attachments since the company has closed their doors. So does anyone, that currently owns a similar Dive N Dog ladder set up, have a picture of the undermount or instructions that may have accompanied theirs when purchased?

Thanks

Defender has one undermount bracket left in stock

Sent from an undisclosed location on the high seas or from the lounge chair by the pool, you decide.

Re: Need a bit of help on my swim ladder

dohenyboy, Thanks. Yes I saw that as well, but the issue is that it is described as being a brkt for a 4 step and not a 5. And although I am sure that I can modiify it to fit, I asked Defender to take a look and see if it matchad another pic I had found on the net, and the pics did not match. Now I am unsure if what they have is what I need so that lead me to the question.

Thanks for looking.

Re: Need a bit of help on my swim ladder

The Dive-N-Dog mount bracket was sort of flimsy, I ended up making my own. After a couple of years use with me climbing up it with a single steel 130 on my back the step tubes started cracking, but was easy to reinforce by welding.
I'm surprised they went under, I though it a good ladder.

a64pilot,
Great to hear that for the most part this ladder has worked for you. I will no doubt reinforce the undermont in some fashion as well. Thanks for the help.
