After unpacking, sections of ladder can be joined together for longer lengths.

Additional Rungs need to be added where two sections are joined.

Measure the overall height of the ladder from your mark.

Drill a hole 60mm deep and fix an alignment bolt 50mm from the top of the ladder.

Support the ladder on the alignment bolt, this will allow the ladder to self plumb.
