Constructed from high-density polyethylene, it will support up to 200 lbs. It's perfect for accessing lower heights up to 20". Features a nonslip walking surface and grippy rubber feet for stability. Imported. 39"L x 17"W x 5"D.

Good product,
February 5, 2015
By: JDewitt
from Ohio
"The ramp is durable and very lightweight as described. If you're ordering this for the side door of a pickup you might get the longer one this one works fine on the running boards but not the sill. I'd like to see a rubber surface on the ramp instead of the hard surface. It took a little for our dog to get used to it but now she's used to it and has no trouble going in and out of the truck"

Dog Ramp,
January 26, 2015
By: PJLabs
from Carlsbad, California
"I returned the ramp. I and the dogs did not like the scratchy sandpaper finish and they slipped on it. It would be much better if it had an outdoor or commercial carpet up the middle than the sandpaper stuff for more secure footing."

Too rough to walk on,
July 12, 2014
By: derbygirl
from Galveston, Tx
"The half ramp has a walking surface that is basically hard sand paper. While unloading it from its box my knuckle got scratched and I lost skin! How will my dog's paws feel on it? Also, it is designed to fit on a side door for a car. I have a Chevy Traverse and it doesn't fit at all. I guess the doors don't open wide enough. Bummer purchase. I was looking forward to it."

Effective but Bulky,
January 16, 2014
By: rescuemom222
from Sacramento, CA
"This ramp is effective for cars and lower-built SUVs, but somewhat less so for the full-size family truck. The grippy rubber feet are in a fixed position that is appropriate for only the lower vehicles. The surface is very rough, kind of sandy, and stands up to rain and mud with only a hose-down to clean it up. Storing the ramp for your journey is somewhat problematic, as this is a solid piece of plastic, and takes up the length of the back seat. I should have purchased a fold-up or telescoping ramp instead of this product."

Easy to Use Ramp,
January 13, 2014
By: Lovesrocks
from Oakdale, CA
"Perfect size ramp to allow dogs to get in vehicles, even trucks. Our Springer Spaniel has trouble jumping because of his age and some joint issues. Ramp allows easy access to my Tahoe, so he can still go for his rides.
Larger ramp was too heavy for me to handle. This half ramp is perfect.

For Hoover,
September 4, 2013
By: fatnsassy

"I don't know how it will work until I give it to Hoover for Christmas. Hoover is a bull mastiff, and it's getting harder and harder for him to get into and out of the van. Hope this will make it easier."

What you need to know before ordering...,
April 9, 2013
By: JulieCA
from Lakewood, CA
"This is a terrific idea, but the description did not fully explain that you need a very large, wide door opening to use this ramp. If you have a van with sliding doors or plan to use this at the tailgate area, this would be great. I have a Chevy Tahoe, and the doors to the back seat do not open a full 90 degrees so the ramp will not sit securely on the door frame. Hope this review will be helpful if you are considering this ramp."
