I purchased the Werner AC18MT "ALUMINUM STANDING PLATFORM" to go with my Werner MT-17 ladder, a very well constructed, very versatile and safe Multi Ladder. Amazon's image of the Werner AC18MT shows the correct product, however it is made of thick Aluminum (not steel) and is primarily designed as a hands-free stable standing platform (but could be used as a working toolpaint tray?...AC24 is actually better suited for this!).
Well, I find this Werner platform accessory to equal all of the positive qualities of the MT-17 ladder (see my review), becoming a very nice and useful feature to the stepladder functions. It sets up on the ladder in 2 seconds, retracts out of the way quickly for ascending, pulls back very easily in place with your foot, then becomes a ROCK SOLID, 300# rated, 12" Square, Slip Resistant, Horizontal Platform that gives me greater Balance and Stability while performing my task! When done, just reverse the setup actions and store it inside the closed ladder (hangs from 3rd rung from top).
The AC18MT provides me greater comfort and better standing balance than just working from the ladder rungs. I can work freely with both hands, suffer less leg fatigue and manage longer periods of time working up high. I find it invaluable and a must have purchase that compliments the MT-17 Extremely Well. I don't do projects without it!!!
