    Perfect step for pup

    By Mary on Mar 9, 2019

    This step easily attaches to the trailer hitch. Our dog loves them and they help him get in and out of the jeep. I think they would only work for a larger dog because they are fairly high off the ground. If you have a jeep with the spare tire on the back, the first step easily removes so the steps fold This step easily attaches to the trailer hitch.

If you have a jeep with the spare tire on the back, the first step easily removes so the steps fold up. The step is easy to take on and off. If you don't have the spare tire, the steps would probably be even better because the top step wouldn't need to come off. Love these steps!! … more

    Great idea but doesn't work 100% for all cars

    By ELIF on Aug 16, 2018

    I wanted something for my 60+ pound dog to get in and out of the back of my Kia Sorento. We're working on getting him used to the steps. He's trained in agility so I am confident we'll get there. However, I wouldn't recommend this for all breeds or ages. Also, the hitch step interferes with my back up I wanted something for my 60+ pound dog to get in and out of the back of my Kia Sorento.

Also, the hitch step interferes with my back up camera. I've tried with and without the steps, doesn't matter - constant beep and sometimes the camera won't turn on. I'm not convinced this is for every car/SUV. I think Solvit has a nice product; however, they should focus it for a subset of vehicles. Also, it would be helpful to have some training tips. I would recommend this with caution. … more

    Easy assembly, sturdy. Easy install, only thing was it detects on back up sensors in reverse. But overall, a great item. Both operational and visual.

    Good product

    By on

    The steps are easy to use and the dog had no trouble with them. The product seems to be well constructed and should hold up for a very long time. Very happy with these steps.

    Good product

    This does just what I wanted it to do. My Lab pup can make the jump into and out of our Expedition but I could see where it’s going to be hard on his joints over time. Now he climbs up and down the steps with ease.

    Excellent Product

    By on

    My lab wouldn’t jump up into our Tahoe as soon as I installed this it took less than 2 minutes to get him up and down on it. We can leave it installed and the rear hatch open and closes. Installed a hitch lock so someone can’t steal it.

    Great steps

    By on

    I love these steps for my SUV. With treats and encouragement, my dog quickly learned to use them. The steps save me from constantly having to carry and set up a ramp. Ramps take up cargo space too. I do take off the steps at times. It's just one bolt. These steps are SO worth preventing joint issues for my dog. I highly recommend them!

    Good Quality, Not Great For Longer Dogs

    By on

    I am pleased with the quality, ease of installation and ease of use. The steps have a good surface so the dog doesn't slip. My only problem is the width distance of the steps. There is only about a 5" differential between the top and bottom steps. My two 85lb Shiloh Shepherds are too long to use both steps. They will hit only one on the way up and down. I probably could have gotten away with a single step type. The product itself is good quality though and would recommend for smaller dogs.
