I retired from the power industry and we quit using those a long time
ago. When they're new it's safe to use them but, as age and corrosion
sets in, they rust at the point where they screw into the pole/tree.
It's impossible to verify the integrity of the steps unless you screw
them out all the way.
If you only need 6 steps then a long ladder should work for you and be a
lot safer, too.
