That model has the one touch release.

I really don't trust the one-touch release ladders I have seen in person.

It's one piece of plastic between the ladder collapsing or not.

I use the Xtend and Climb. Yes, you have to undo each run individually, but that also means there is no one point to fail and collapse.
