  1. This measurement is key to getting a stair lift that properly fits your stair case. Please make sure to measure at least twice for the most accuracy. To make this measurement you will stand at the top landing and extend your tape measure down the stairs until it hits the bottom landing. The tape should be resting on the edge of each stair's tread along the way. How many inches is it from the edge of the top landing to the bottom landing? Use the diagram if you are unsure of exactly what to measure.
