Skamper-Ramp® Regular Size
Skamper-Ramp® was invented as a KISS (Keep It Simple Solution) to an age-old problem - prevention of animal water drowning - and now matter how the ramp evolves it will always serve that purpose.
The blowmolded Skamper-Ramp (SKR4), new in 2009, was developed in response to consumer requests for a ramp that functions for emergency use as well as for frequent use. This version is stronger, ideal for vinyl lined pools because it is manufactured using a process that makes sure there are no sharp fabricated edges, easier to assemble, less slippery, more aesthetically pleasing, and more functional, all because of the change in forming method!
Because all living beings see white, animals can see it day or night and, even if they can't use a step (ducklings, snakes, baby possums), they can "skamper" out of the water on the ramp by themselves!

Attachment for all Skamper-Ramps:
Some people choose to use existing railings, pool cover anchors, or water leveler covers, rather than drilling into their deck. In this case, be sure the rope tie-downs are not spread much farther apart than the width of the ramp for optimal performance.
The ramp should float/hang in the water at an angle that is approximately 30-degrees below horizontal so that the ramp's round "nose" is submerged by a few inches.
There are two sets of holes in the ramp for threading the rope through, in order to have a snug fit to the wall (including under a deep coping, such as with a steel sided vinyl wall.)
In the case of coping/an overhanging deck, be sure to rethread the rope through the holes below the logo, in order to pull the ramp snugly under the overhang, and close to the pool wall.
Lead-plug or stainless steel anchors with non-rusting screws are suggested for poured/solid decks; non-rusting bolts and nuts with a lock washer are suggested for hollow decks. Customers should check with their pool service company if they are unsure what method to use!
