Care & Use Guide
Because it's infinitely adjustable, the Deluxe Telescoping Pet Ramp is many ramps in one! Extend it all the way out for use with trucks/SUVs, grooming tables, swimming pools, etc., or slide it in for use in tight spaces such as a bed or couch, or the side entry on a minivan.
To use the Deluxe Telescoping Pet Ramp, simply set the angled, upper end on the surface to which your pet is trying to climb (car, couch, etc.), depress the release tab under the inner slide, then pull out the inner slide to the required length and set it on the ground. The advanced design of the ramp "locks" itself when weight is applied, so there is no need for extra devices to lock the ramp in position. When finished, simply push the inner slide back into the closed position until the release tab is engaged, and stow in a convenient place. The t-e-l-e-s-c-o-p-i-n-g design is the secret to making the Pet Ramp so easy to use.
In its fully extended position (72 inches), the ramp is rated to handle 400+ lbs. The less the ramp is extended, the stronger it is. In the fully-closed position (39 inches), the ramp can handle over 500 lbs!
CAUTION: The Pet Ramp is designed for use ONLY by pets such as dogs, cats, and small animals. It is not intended to carry humans or heavy loads. Using the Ramp in this way voids the warranty and creates an unsafe situation! Please follow this guideline strictly.
Training: Many pets will begin using the Pet Ramp with no hesitation. If your pet is unsure at first, lay the Ramp flat on the ground and allow your pet to become comfortable walking on it before using it in an inclined position. It also helps to hold your pet by the collar and offer reassuring praise and/or treats as your pet gains confidence using the Ramp. For vehicle use, command your pet to stay inside the vehicle until the Ramp is deployed, then walk your pet down safely.
For Use in Water: For swimming pools, the Ramp is best used in depths of 3 feet or less. Extend the Ramp and lay the inner section on the bottom of the pool.
Cleaning: If the Pet Ramp becomes dirty, simply clean with any standard household cleaner, or hose off.
Maintenance: Your Ramp should be maintenance-free. The nuts attaching the side rails have a locking feature to prevent them from loosening. As a precaution, check these nuts periodically to make sure no loosening occurs.
