Try going on-line to the manufacturers web site if there is one. More to the point is what is it you want to do that you can't with the ladder?

Couldn't be any easier all changes to the ladder can be made by pulling the pins just below the hinge Straighten the ladder out flat for an extension ladder To use as a scaffold you will need two ladders

A noun is any physical or imaginary object.
A verb is anything that an object can do.
A pronoun is a special reusable "general purpose" noun used to indicate another noun.
An adjective (you missed that one) is a word that describes a noun.
An adverb is a word that describes a verb.

For example, "My red ladder folds easily - it is new".
"Ladder" is a noun, a physical object. "Folds" is a verb - it tells what the ladder can do. "My" and "red" are both adjectives; they describe the ladder (the noun). "Easily" is an adverb; it describes how the ladder folds (describes the verb). "It" is a pronoun, which is reusable because the same "it" could be used to indicate a ladder, a car, a shirt, a philosophy, an incident, nearly any noun. "is" is another verb, telling something that "it" can do (it can "be" something). "New" is another adjective, describing the ladder.

HI Can i use the xp180 on the floor to hang curtain rails

It is a good laser, but it is self leveling so you will have trouble setting it on the floor and be able to title it. It will probably go into error mode and the laser will flash telling you that it isn't level.

Suggest a step ladder that is about the right height.

I bought a protractor to measure the angle fo my stairs for baseboard. Now that I know thw angle how do I apply this to make the right angle cut?

Use a framing square with a set of angle gages (or stops) on it. The protractor can be used but it will take a lot of flipping and changing. The normal settings are 8" rise and 10" tread.

I have a BDS 300 sensor and have lost instructions

I just bought one too and instructions need deciphering. Select wood or metal with selector switch. Put unit flat against wall. Press and hold on/off button on left. (It looks like it must be kept pressed in at all times to be 'on' and when released it's 'off). The unit with calibrate and give a beep back and lower red LED will stay on. Move unit slowly left/right and more red LEDs light up until green is on. This is 1st edge. Mark it with pencil. Move unit along until Green is off and down to single LED. Then move it back in opp. direction until Green is on again. This is 2nd edge. Attached is a scan of page from Instruction Manual. Quality is lowish as attachment limit here is 150kb.e4edea4.jpg

I recently purchased a kwikset jda-9760718-002

You can download them from kwikset here. Just choose your version of the lever, select Installation & Troubleshooting instructions from the search list, and scroll down to the .pdf document file listed in the next window.
But that lever is pretty standard, and there are also some kwikset installation directions here
You can use some pretty generic instructions if you just google "install lockset"., that may have some useful pointers.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Measuring Tool to Short

You have acouple of options

You can buy a measuring tool that doesn't have a size limit or has a very high size limit, you can check around to find one that will suit your needs.

You can measure the till the end of you measuring tool, mark the spot where it ends, and make another measuerment from that spot.

Another option is to take a long piece of string, and run it between the two points you want to measure, Cut the rope exactly between the two points, and later you can measure it, section by section, this is a lot of work!

I'm sure that these aren't all the possible methods, I think that folks around here might add a few.

Good luck
