Review of Brophy Enclosed Trailer Parts SS02


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Steel Scissor Steps. These are going to be manufactured from a steel construction for strength and durability. They're actually going to feature a weight capacity of 300 pounds. On the surface of the step, we're going to have a nice diamond tread surface that's going to help provide some additional grip to prevent falls. The steel is going to have a nice black powder coated finish on it so it's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion and looking nice for a long time. Now, the vertical height with these steps is going to measure between 18" and 23" so what that means is if the area where you need some stairs is between those measurements, then this setup is going to work great for your application.

The stairs, because of the unique scissor design, they're actually going to self-adjust to the terrain for a nice secure hold and they also fold easily for compact storage. The unit is going to come fully assembled so it's ready to be installed right out of the box. It's very easy to install and to use. It does include installation instructions. It's also going to come with your mounting hardware and our mounting bracket. Your mounting hardware is going to consist of these 4 lag screws right here and then your mounting bracket is going to look like this.

The mounting bracket grabs on to this arm here at the back so that actually pivots and then it's going to create that nice flat surface where it's going to mount to your application. This is going to mount one-eighth of an inch below the lowest part of your door. Again, mounting bracket is included. Now, if you're going to be installing this on a pickup at the tailgate, it does require a separate mounting bracket. It's sold separately.

It can be found here at e-trailer.com with part number TSSB. The mounting bracket that's provided, those are going to measure 18-1/4" long. The lips are going to measure 1" so 1" deep by 1" tall. You can see it's got the nice V channels right here to hold that upper arm of the scissor stairs or scissor steps. It's going to contain 4 mount holes. These mount holes are going to be separated on center, outer one to outer one by 15-3/4" and then we're going to have 5-1/4" between each mount hole center on center.

Again, mounting hardware is included. The product is made right here in the USA. This is a 2-step design. If we take a measurement of the actual step size, outside edge to outside edge, the overall width is going to be about 18". The actual step is going to measure about 17-1/4". The step depth is going to measure about 6-1/4". The distance that we have between the steps from the top of one to the top of the other is going to measure about 7-1/2". Now, please keep in mind that the step is only to be used while the vehicle is stationary. You do not want to permanently mount the step. You want to use the included mounting bracket so that the step can easily be removed prior to vehicle travel. To fold this up, what you would do is you would simply remove the upper arm from the mounting bracket. At that point, the step can easily be folded just like that. Here at the back, it's going to have the little keeper. That way when it's folded for storage, you can see there that it's going to keep it folded. That way it allows for easy compact, transportation and storage when it's not fully setup. Now with it in this position, this is going to be the fully retracted position, we're going to push it all the way down, take some measurements in this position. It's going to measure about 18" wide. Front to back, we're looking at about 9". Overall height, we're looking at a measurement of about 7" tall. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy Steel Scissor Steps.
