HitchMate TruckStep Customer Reviews

Traditional hitch steps work wonders when you need a boost into your payload or up to your roof. But, they’re completely useless as soon as you lower your tailgate. When you equip your rig with the HitchMate TruckStep, your step is always ready to lend a hand. This retractable truck step slides out a full 23.5” to clear your open tailgate and give you a leg up anytime you need it.
Built to be as rugged and dependable as your rig, the HitchMate TruckStep is constructed from heavy-duty steel and finished with a rust-repellent zinc plating. It’s got enough backbone to support up to 500 lbs even when fully extended. What's more, the step pad sports an anti-slip rubber pad, giving you sure footing even if your boots are caked in mud and crud. And, the step flips up and sits flush with your bumper when you’re not using your trailer hitch step.
Best of all, the HitchMate TruckStep mounts to any 2” receiver hitch. Got more than 1 vehicle? This truck hitch step is easy to slip on and take off, so it’s simple to swap between vehicles. And, it’s backed by a limited Lifetime Warranty.

First, works as advertised. Craftmanship is pretty good. Few issues. A little tricky to fold step back up. Second, retaining pin falls out causing whole unit to fall off. The pin had a sprung ball bearing to keep it in slot but that appearently failed the 2nd day. Thank god no one behind me when whole unit slipped out of receiver and bounced on road

No tools needed, just slides right into receiver. I am a hefty man at 260 and supports me easily. I like the way it slides and locks into place and stores inside itself to be out of the way. (only sticks out 2 inches)

the hitch mate truck step is as tough as it gets. hitchmate beats the mounted push downs. there may be a litte extra effort because it has to be puuled out. but it holds 200lbs more. it straight up is a rugged step.

Having a six inch lift and 35 inch tires, this product is a necessity for getting into truck bed! And the fact that it extends so its still useful when the tailgate is down makes it even better!!! What a great idea! What a great product! Highly recommended!!!
