The Kelus-LV Bay Mobility Enhancer is a telescopic ladder Kerbals can climb on during EVAs. It is the longest ladder of all stock parts.

Product description

The Kelus-LV Mobility Enhancer Bay comes equipped with advanced telescopic extension technology. Recommended load 1.5 kerbals. After discovering that their name was already in use, Kelus picked their current name with the flip of a coin.

Usage

When put on a vessel, the Kelus-LV Bay Mobility Enhancer starts in a closed position and extends when activated by the user via right-clicking on it. The extended ladder allows Kerbals to grab onto it and move vertically on it. A small electric light turns on when the bay is opened and the ladder is extended; however, the light consumes no electric charge, and cannot illuminate terrain. Kerbals can't collide with the part whether stowed or extended. The only interaction via Kerbal is grabbing and moving vertically. Kerbals can climb from one ladder to the next.

In the VAB and SPH, the Enhancer is always shown in its retracted state unless manually extended. It can be right-clicked and made to start extended or retracted.

Like other ladders, the Kelus-LV Bay Mobility Enhancer is a physicsless part.

Trivia

  • The part description refers to the ladder's name change in version 1.1.3; its original name was "Telus Mobility Enhancer".
