Safe Way Treads Wear Like Iron!
Verified Purchase

I bought a set of these reflective treads for the new deck I built. They are still in great condition after two years of blistering SoCal summer heat and two winter downpours. We are having our house remodeled now, and workers carrying sacks of cement, drywall, lumber and sand are tromping on the stair treads, and they still hold up fine. We hose off our deck regularly as well and they have not come loose.

The Last Bath Mat You Will Ever Buy!
Verified Purchase

My only regret is not finding out about peel and stick bathtub mats 30 years ago. This mat is thin and sticks directly to the tub, so you can hardly tell it's there. Unlike suction cup mats that are bulky and have a tendency to slide around as well as get mildew underneath. Straightforward and simple installation, non-slip surface, and long length make this product a winner in all aspects. Everyone should own one of these.

Super Reflective - Holds Great!
Verified Purchase

Tape sticks to surface like it’s hanging on for dear life - definitely don’t need to worry about it coming off. The reflectiveness of this product is amazing blends in good with aluminum panels so it doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb but when the light hits it you definitely know it’s there super bright.

America's Scariest Stairs!

America's Scariest Stairs!

These stairs may be worth the effort to reach the top, but may be intimidating and treacherous – and remember, you have to get back down...

 Haiku Stairs, Oahu, Hawaii

HawaiiThe 3,922 rickety steps that lead a half mile up Oahu’s Koolau Mountain range are so seriously scary that climbing them is now illegal. Nicknamed the Highway to Heaven, they were built in 1942 by the U.S. Navy. Popular with daredevil hikers, by 1987, they were closed for safety concerns, and they stay that way, despite a 2003 renovation project.

Half Dome, Cable Route, California

IfHalf Dome you want to see panoramic views of Yosemite Valley and the High Sierra, you will have a seven-mile all-incline hike through the wilderness that culminates with climbing the rock face along a cable ladder for more than 400 vertical feet. Rainy conditions have proved fatal.

 

 Statue of Liberty, New York City

Statue of Liberty

To reach the platform in Lady Liberty’s crown, you’ll have to trek up a claustrophobic, crowded, 146-step double-helix spiral staircase with just six feet of head clearance. Or, if you are really brave, make the entire tight 377-step hike up all the way from the lobby, the equivalent of climbing a 20-story building.

 

 

 

Moaning Cavern, California


Moaning CavernWelded almost a century ago, this 100-foot-tall curlicue staircase, leads you deep into the darkness of a damp cave known for its eerie wails and moans. Make it to the bottom and you’re rewarded with a cave so big it could fit the Statue of Liberty.

 

 

The Verrückt, Kansas City, KS


VerrucktTo reach the starting point of the world’s tallest and fastest water slide, you’ve got to climb 264 steps that wind up the slide’s tower with 25 turns. If you can’t brave the slide, you’ll have to turn around and suffer the 17-story walk back down the nauseating steps.

 

Cedar Creek Treehouse Observatory, Washington


Climb up a unique, 82-foot cantilevered, spiral stairway to experience expansive views of Mount Rainier and the Nisqually Valley from this observatory. It is one of the only cantilevered stairways on earth built into a tree. As you go, try not to think about the planks being supported by nothing more than bolts and the trunk of the centuries-old fir tree.

 

Your Creepy Basement Stairs


Creepy basement stairsA majority of basement and cellars from around the country still have some of the scariest stairs. Conditions usually include dank, low light situations with dirty, unfinished wood treads, inconsistent step height, low head clearance and rickety bannisters – if any! These types of stairs seem to have a starring role in every horror movie ever made!
