some sort of latch and pole system to pull down the door to an attic ladder
have an attic ladder (aluminum w/ easy-open assist mechanism) but it has a rope pull. I want some sort of handle/ latch - (short) pole system so the rope pull can be removed, and not hang down into my hallway. Maybe something like we had in school (in the 60's# when the windows #were they called transit windows??# were up high #ceiling height), they had a brass ring that you had to hook w/ a long pole, and open the window by pulling down.
