Review of Carr Hitch Step CARR183242

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a hitch mounted step for two inch trailer hitches. This unit provides quick, easy access to your vehicle's truck bed, cargo area or roof rack. When it's not being used, it flips up. It's got a really secure hold in this position. So it flips up when it's not in use. It has the red reflective sticker that covers the bottom of the step and shows when the step is folded up.

It offers very sure footing with the nonslip surface. Slides in a trailer hitch to function as a hitch cover as well. So it's going to keep out dirt and grime. It secures in the hitch using a standard pin and clip or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately and are available at pin holes on this unit will accept a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin.

There's two pin holes to choose from. So you just choose whichever one works best for your application.When it comes to the construction, we're looking at a black powder coated aluminum construction. It's very strong, durable, and rust proof. The parts are made in the U.S.A. It is designed to fit inside of a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver.

When it comes to the step dimensions, we're looking at about five inches. Then front to back going this direction, we're looking at about two and 5/8 of an inch. It has a weight capacity of 650 pounds and it's covered with a limited lifetime warranty.It's very simple installation. All you have to do is take it, slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up whatever pin hole works best for you, and then take a pin and clip or a hitch lock and secure it inside your hitch. That's going to do it for today's look at the hitch mounted step for two inch trailer hitches..
