Description

From high-speed road bikes to ocean kayaks, your roof rack is the perfect platform for hauling your toys. But, unless you're built like Andre the Giant, hoisting your gear aloft is a real pain in the backside—literally. Instead of straining to reach your roof, give yourself a big boost up with the HitchMate TireStep.

The HitchMate TireStep is a fully portable step ladder that fits right over your tire, creating a stable, sturdy platform for stepping up. Break it out when you're washing your rig, and you'll be able to reach that bird squeeze on your roof with ease. Set it up when you're working under the hood, and you won't kill your back checking your brake fluid. The HitchMate TireStep is always there to save the day.

Constructed from durable steel with an anti-rust black powder coating, this tire step can support up to 400 lbs of weight. The stepping area boasts a skid-free diamond-tread pattern, and its generous 22" x 10" size ensures sure footing. Plus, it folds flat and comes with a storage bag. Limited Lifetime Warranty included.

Seems like it does what it intends

The adjustments are kind of hard to work, and yet the folding parts flop around a bit. I might try to put a bit of bicycle innertube at the folding joints to tame it. Seems OK for what it is intended to do though.

Sturdy and works well

Very sturdy and heavy duty feeling, works well. Only complaint is, like others on here have stated, it would be nice if carrying bag was big enough to allow you to have the step at preferred position, bag can only be used in default setup of step which is not ideal for me.

Slightly disappointed

Works fine, but if you change the adjustments from the way it was shipped, it WILL NOT FIT in the bag. The zipper on the bag popped the stitching the very first time I zipped it up. I can have it fixed, but theres a few extra bucks to make it right. Also the spring loaded detent buttons to adjust for tire size were so hard to push I had to use channel locks with padding to get them pushed in.

perfect!

the step is just what was needed to reach the center of the windshield and the hood. makes washing & waxing much easier. it's adjustable for different sized tires and it also adjusts for up and down for a longer reach.

practical

The step is very practical and fits perfectly over the tire and I like that it comes in its own bag so that the interior of the car doesn't get scratched. The downside is, that I have adjusted the step into the middle position and the bag doesn't shut anymore. I wished that part would have been better thought out!
