    This was a great idea and we get compliments all the time. No one asks any more "how do I get on the boat". The only problems are the construction. The top bolts are set a bit down from the upper edg and as such the ramp being aluminum bent. This was easy to fit by added a cold rolled steel plate across the top 3 inches and through bolting to the dock. Now that it is rigid.... The hinge pin bolts have bent! Nice idea but does not handle a 200 pound person.

    Comments about Dockmate Folding Access Platform With Safety Handrail:

    This is a helpful product to assist in accessing the boat from the pier when the distance between the two is more than most people can span. We bought a new lift that was almost two feet from our pier. This made boarding difficult. The folding access ramp is very sound and sturdy. It is well-designed.

    The major problem with it is that it does not include instructions. After reading all the comments, we figured out that we needed six lag bolts. Customer service answered our questions. However, we installed this on an aluminum pier, and it was a little tricky. We learned that the hinge has to be on the pier itself to hold the ramp. So after two attempts, we finally got it right.

        Comments about Dockmate Folding Access Platform With Safety Handrail:

        Installing this to the existing doc was a breeze, 6 1.5" lag screws and in about 15 minutes we were using it. In our application we back our cruiser into our slip and before installing this platform we had to step from the dock down to the swimplatform then step back up into the boat all in a very confined space, making for a very awkward and dangerous situation especially for guests that were unfamiliar with the process or if mobility was hampered in any way. Now that we added this platform, just walk across and step right into the cockpit, very safe and easy. My wife thinks it is the best upgrade we have done at the docks. It is super sturdy and I have had a 300# guy walking on it and still it's as solid as the dock. We were the first to install one, but now everyone is ordering them.
