This product was purchased along with a McAllister ladder, the hatch does not come with any form of pole. The pole is only sold as part of a Manthorpe ladder set, which B&Q do not sell. Due to height of ceiling I require a step ladder to open the hatch to access the ladder in the loft, I intend to rip this hatch out and start again at my earliest convenience, and never buy anything like this from B&Q again.
Designed to break

Purchased in store. I had a hatch like this which lasted nearly 10 years. However, a tiny piece of plastic broke on it so it wouldn't shut properly. Staff in store told me I couldn't get a replacement part because they now stock this model. So I had to grudgingly replace the whole thing.
First problem is the ridiculous design which prevents you from opening it with a stick. To open this thing you have to get up on a step/ladder and slide it open by hand. And don't be fooled by the instruction diagram showing somebody opening it with a single finger. These things do not open and close easily. Within a week one of the plastic catches had snapped from having to wrench it open. Within a few months I had to literally break the thing to get it open as it had become completely wedged shut. I can only concluded that this thing is designed to break easily and have to constantly be replaced.
I have since had a local carpenter round to replace this with a good old fashioned wooden hatch. From the days when technology was advanced enough that you could open your loft hatch with the convenience of a stick with a hook on the end. I figure this is a sounder investment than constantly replacing this rubbish.
Great product for the price

Fitted it very easily and securely. Much better than the old one as you have the option of taking the door off totally

Really easy to install in existing hole (helps that it was already the right size!), excellent insulation even in cold weather with no drafts at all, easy to open and close, looks good on ceiling. Perhaps a bit pricey but a vast improvement on old hatch and am very pleased with it
