Charlotte, NC – This holiday season, consider gifts that provide solutions like the new WORX® Storage Step Stool. This compact, portable tool box doubles as a step stool, so for someone 5 ft. 5 in. tall, the 13 in. step stool provides the reach of someone 6 ft. 8 in. tall.
Thirteen inches doesn’t sound like much, but when added to a person’s height, it provides the advantage of handling those out-of-reach jobs. The 7.15 lb. step stool isn’t limited to DIY projects. Use it for the hard-to-reach items in kitchen cabinets or pantry shelves. The step stool also helps when reaching for linens and towels tucked away in closets. As a painter’s helper, the extra step means one step closer to painting trim around windows and doors. Outside the home, the Storage Step Stool is a handy stool for detailing a car’s wheels, as well as marine and trailer maintenance. It also adds an extra step around RVs, trucks, vans and SUVs.
