Carr Hitch Step - Flip-Down Step - CARR183172 Review

Jeff Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this Carr black aluminum hitch mounted step for two inch trailer hitches. This will provide a nice quick, easy access to your vehicle's truck bed, cargo area, or your roof rack. You just flip the step down. Allows you to access those areas.

And then, it flips up when it's not in use. Gives a nice unobtrusive look. You can see when it's flipped up, it shows a nice black graphic of the pickup truck on the bottom of the step. So when you do fold it up, that's what you would see. And then, when you fold it down, here's what's your step is.

Offers sure footing. Has a nice non-slip surface to it. And it is designed to slide into your trailer hitch receiver. Keeping out any dirt and grime. Now, when you do install this, it does require a pin and a clip, or a hitch lock to secure it to your hitch.

Those items we do sell separately. But I just wanted to show you how this installs. I happen to pull an example of a two inch hitch receiver that this would fit into. Again, you see, I'll take the pin and clip out. And then, what you'll do is just take this, and you notice there's two holes you can attach it to.

So, you just find the one that correctly fits your application. Put your pin through there. Put your clip through there. And as we mentioned, the pin and clip is not included. You would have to supply that. And it locks it into place. And you're in your hitch, all ready to go. And there's your step you can step on. And then again, when you're not using it, just flip it up. You just wanna make sure, don't get your fingers in there cause it will hurt. But it flips up and is out of the way from somebody hitting it with their shins. Now, it is a nice black powder coated aluminum construction. Very strong, durable, and rustproof. It is made in the USA. Few specs on this again, it is designed to fit two inch by two inch size trailer hitch receivers. Weight capacity on this is 650 pounds. And the step platform dimensions. We put a ruler on them. It's gonna be right at five inches long. And the width on it. Let me go ahead and flip this up. You'll see the width better. This is gonna be right at 2 1/2 inches wide. So again, when this is installed, you can have it folded up just like that out of the way. And then, when you need to reach into your truck bed, or access your cargo areas, flip that plate down. Step right on. You're ready to go. And to remove it, just slide it out. And it removes easily from your hitch. But that should do it for the review on this Carr black aluminum hitch mounted step for two inch trailer hitches..
