Insider Tip: How To Keep Apple Boxes From Sliding on Snow or in Icy Weather
“Whenever our crew uses apple boxes filming outside and there is snow on the ground, the apple box slides and creates a dangerous situation. Your Shure-Step looks like the perfect replacement that won’t slide in the rain or snow.” – Randy J, Senior Engineer, ABC News New York

To prevent this sort of problem check out Shure-Step and some of the safest step stools in the world. Customers that have owned these steps for a while, brag on how tough they are to their peers.
