Wipe up any foreign matter or liquid with a damp cloth or sponge. Fold down for easy storage. Safety side rails are built into the design so your pet can climb up and down with confidence.
Step 1 - position the back leg in the "locked" position: Simply swing out the back leg section (which is folded under the main stair section) until both of the "locking tabs" are engaged in their respective windows in the "locking rib" section. To ease the engagement of the locking tab into the window, press down gently on the "button" on the locking tab arm.
Step 2 - attach stair treads: There should be 4 adhesive-backed tread covers included with your stairs. Working one step at a time, peel the white paper backing off each tread piece and press firmly into the recessed area on each plastic step. Hold pressure for a few seconds before moving to the next piece. Repeat until all 4 tread pieces are installed. Your stairs should now look like the image on the carton.
Step 3 - attach non-slip feet (optional): Attach the rubberized non-slip feet only if the stairs will be used on a slick surface, such as wood flooring. Peel the backing from each piece and press firmly into the flat area at the corners on the underside of the stairs. Repeat for all 4 corners.
