thanks for this DIY ladder design.
Can you give us a description about your parts?
What are the single parts for?
How many pieces do we need for a complete DIY ladder?
Thank you in advance,
best regards

There are 3 different size clamps (inner diameter), which consist from 2 pieces (Piece 1, Piece 2)
The Connector Piece also consists from 2 parts and is used to attach the stairs to the clamps. So 2 assembled pieces for one stair needed.
Carbon rod endcap should be clear
The Rope Fixer is fixing the paracord which is fed through the carbon rods, so they don't fall apart. This piece then is placed inside the connector piece and screwed in place
The latch simply attaches to the connector pieces and should avoid slipping the connector piece out of the clamp. In my case they are optional, since the pieces fit pretty well and with some resistence, which is intented, so the clamps don't slip up or down.
Just realized that one piece is missing. Added the Peg_Holder which connects the telescopic arm with the metal peg (2 pieces per telescopic arm needed). The Peg_Holder_Spacer is for the upper Peg_Holder, which has to slide over a thicker area of the telescopic arm, leaving some slack at the final position. The space is supposed to take away the slack to some degree.

Take a look at the gravity gate thingi. There are some more pictures, which may answer some of your questions. Also added some new here.
