Manthorpe Drop Down Loft Access Door is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Clever design and very smart. The hardest part was adjusting my loft opening as it is an older house with 2' spaced joists. Once done fitting was easy. Two tips from my experience: when screwing the frame to the opening, use duct tape on the inside of the frame to hold it to the opening while you screw in the fixings and I found that the pole I use to pull down the ladder has an end that fits exactly in the recess to open it. Hold the pole in the recess with your left hand and with you right hand halfway up the pole push the hatch in the opposite direction to the hinge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I fitted one of these yesterday, after fitting a loft ladder. I found this easier than modified the original hatch, which the ladder came with a kit to do. Also a much tidier job and no painting to do. The only slight negative to bear in mind is that you do need to stand on something, (unless you're over 6 foot tall) to open the hatch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good item but beware the space needed. This does exactly what it says, easily put up and a well-designed thing. But...be aware that it needs extra space round the frame beyond the quoted dimensions. Hidden in the instructions it states, quite correctly, that 100mm are needed all the way round the frame. This is due to the horizontally-sliding design. This is limiting in a modern house. Mine is up but with 'modifications'. It only just has the necessary space to open and close.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea but... Good idea but didnt work. As others have commented, the hatch is very difficult close and open. I reinstalled the hatch into a separate frame and that worked ok on the bench but it didnt solve the problem in situ. I ended up having to break open the frame to dismantle it and ordered the older, drop down version from elsewhere. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value. Bought to replace a draughty loft hatch. Fairly easy to fit and looks nice and neat. A big improvement and no draughts. Good value.
