TwiStep® Vehicle Step

Jumping in and out of a vehicle can cause injury to your dog, regardless of age. This innovative, rubber-coated dog car step fits into a standard 2" or 1¼" receiver, and provides easy, safe access into and out of your vehicle. When not in use, the step simply swivels 180 degrees and stores beneath the vehicle—there's no need to remove it. Able to support up to 400 lbs., it's also ideal for accessing roof racks on taller vehicles. Sturdy steel and glass-filled nylon composite construction. The lock doubles as a secure hitch pin and includes two keys. Dog car step in black. 19" x 22" step area, weighs 24 lbs.

Back saver!,

"This works great and my 65lb. PWD loves it. He learned quickly to use it, and people stop me all the time and say, "Where did you get that, I need one!" I wish it was a little easier to twist, the pin is a little tight. It would be perfect if you could open and close it with your foot. But, i would recommend to anyone, especially if your cargo area is high like my Jeep."

Great for large dogs,

"This item is wonderful! i bought it for my new Traverse for my 130# Swissy and it took perhaps several viewings to register the different approach to loading up but then he was right on board! it's super easy to use, swings into storage and is just about the best alternative to a ramp that i have ever seen. Just love it and a great purchase!"

exactly what I needed,

"We had been using a tri-fold ramp for the first 2 years of my Bullmastiff's life. When she was with me- the ramp took up the entire back seat. It started scuffing my leather interior. The ramp was heavy and wasn't holding her weight well.
This step is a great replacement! SO much easier on me.
My dog is very sensitive to change, but is adapting well.
I highly recommend this for large dogs (of all ages) to protect their joints."

Best Invention Ever!,
March 14, 2013
By: Tobymom
from Virginia
"I have a 115 pounds German shepherd and he love to ride in the back of my SUV. I always had trouble getting him up but the step is wide enough to allow him to get up and down with no problem. I can leave the step on the car all the time so is easy for me to turn it in and out for Toby. Great product!"

USE WITH EASE - both K-9 and Human!,

"I have an XL dog and this step is WONDERFUL!!! Regardless of the dog size, this allows your pet to get safely in and out of your vehicle. It takes the impact off their shoulders and hindquarters and gives them the enjoyment of "going for a ride". The price seems high but the balance is the elimination for the potential vet bills. Intallation is simple and the use is effortless! Stowing under the hitch is brilliant! Thanks again to Orvis for providing such a quality product as part of their dog line!"

"Easy to install; sturdy; and easy to use. One of the best purchases I've made (for both the dogs and myself). I probably use the step more than the dogs (makes a great seat while putting ski boots on!). Highly recommend the product."
