        Comments about Matthews Half Apple Box:

        I use this product in two ways. One to elevate either me or my subject but also as step to help my aging father-in-law from his wheelchair into his truck. It is nice because it is light weight, stable and the built in handle makes it easy for anyone to control. IT would be nice to come with a slip proof coating as an option.

          Comments about Matthews Half Apple Box:

          These are quality items that are solidly built. We considered having our own UCLA facilities department construct these items, but were happy to find these items at B&H. They would have likely cost us more to have them constructed. These look like they'll last us a long, long time.

          It's support a truck - and because it'll support a truck don't expect it to be light weight. And, yes - it's easy to use.

                  We beat the heck out of these Apple boxes. If you are in the industry then you know that Matthews is the name in the business. Why buy anything else when it comes to solid grip gear that you know will hold up.

                          well built - unfinished though, so you may want to stain it if you use it outdoors or in messy locations
