Xtend+Climb telescoping ladders work like extension ladders but collapse small enough to fit into a car trunk.

The aluminum ladders are available in home and pro series that come in heights from 8.5 to 15.5 feet. The ladders can be adjusted to any height at 1-foot intervals. A handle is integrated into the design to make the collapsed ladder easy to carry, and thumb releases are positioned to prevent pinching while the ladder is being collapsed. The ladders weigh from 16.5 to 36 pounds. Prices range from $149.99 to $309.99 on The ladders are also available on and from many big-box retailers.
