Review of Heininger Holdings Hitch Step HE4045

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Hitch Mate truck step extendable hitch-mounted step for two inch hitches, has a 500 pound weight capacity. How this unique hitch mounted platform will install into you two inch hitch receiver opening and will let you easily step into your truck bed, even with the tailgate down, and the way that is this support strut right here. This will extended the step platform out up to 12 and a half inches from your receiver opening. You just pull the T handle and extend that out. And once it gets far enough you can see that with your tailgate down, you still will even be able to step on it and reach in there. Locks into place.

It's 12 and a half inches from your receiver opening to the edge of the step. The step itself is five and a half inches. So, the total length to extends it out is about 18 inches.And then it gives you, when you pull it back and slide it all the way in, it'll give you a nice low profile appearance when it's not in use. This support arm slides back beneath your truck or your SUV. This step platform will also flip up and slide back even closer against the hitch receiver.

The step itself is a non-slip molded step surface. It is constructed sturdy steel construction. On the strut, the support bar right here, it's a corrosion resistant zinc plating on that. The hitch pin does come with it, so when you do slide this part in to your two inch hitch receiver opening, line your hitch pin holes up, slide you pin through there, and if you see it has the ball inaudible 00:01:20 it'll hold it into place.For extra security they do have a quarter inch pole in there that you could put a padlock through there, give you extra security. And the padlocks we do sell separately on our website.

Few specs on this again. This is designed to fit two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. Weight capacity on this step is 500 pounds. Give you a few dimensions on the step itself. The width is nine and a quarter inches by five and a half inches.

And again, when you do flip this is horizontal now. It can be flipped up vertically and even pushed back further and when you do that, it'll measure only three inches from the end of the receiver when the step is fully retracted and folded up. But that should do it for the review on the Hitch Mate truck step extendable hitch mounted step for two inch hitches with a 500 pound weight capacity.
