Video Transcript for Brophy RV and Camper Steps TSSB Review

Speaker: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Tailgate Scissor Step bracket. This bracket is used to mount a set of Scissor stairs to your truck's tailgate. It's going to work with 18 inch and 24 inch Brophy Aluminum Scissor steps. The bracket itself is made from a durable steel construction with a protective finish to keep it safe from rust and corrosion and from the elements. Now when it comes to getting the bracket mounted, it's going to have these L pins back here. You want to measure to distance from the center of one L pin to the center of the other.

This is going to give you the distance between the two holes that need to be drilled in your vehicle's tailgate. Then you would insert the L pins into the holes and rotate the bracket. That's really all there is to it. That's8 going to provide a really great attachment point right here with the hooks for your Brophy Scissor Stairs. For a permanent installation, you can use the pre-drilled or pre-punched holes on each end of the bracket and attaching it to the tailgate with mounting hardware. Mounting hardware is sold separately.

It does come with detailed installation instructions to help walk you through the entire process step by step. Few measurements to go over with real quick. We're going to start with the over-all length of the unit. Measuring edge to edge, it's going to give us a measurement of about 18 1/8 of an inch. The distance that we have between our L pins going center on center, that's going to give us a measurement, it looks to be right on 15 inches. The distance between these mount holes, center on center, that's going to give us a measurement of about 16 13/16 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy Tailgate Scissor Step bracket..

Worked perfect for my application. I did need to modify the bracket slightly (straightened the tailgate hooks on the underside of the bracket) to install on my adjustable camper deck. I wanted the top hanging bracket style so this was the closest I could find. Fit my stairs perfect.

etrailer has come through again for me! I needed an additional mounting bracket for my excellent Brophy detachable camper step and Kaylyn got right on it! The Brophy step is really sturdy, stable and very well made. In my case I wanted 2 attachment points on my rear cargo carrier/back deck on our camper and Kaylyn at Etrailer made it happen! I have attached a photo of the carrier with the 2 mounting brackets. (the stairs are not attached because of where it is sitting!). Thanks again to Kaylyn, etrailer, and Brophy! Best regards.

What I like: 1) It's compact for easy storage when not needed. 2) It's well built and firmly attaches to my tailgate. 3) It works great for steps to our truck camping tent, see attached photos. What I don't like: 1) The 6" gap between the top step and the tailgate. I've filled it in with a block of wood but eventually like to replace that with a bent aluminum plate.

Its a year old now and still working great. I have had no issues with it and the steps used with the bracket helps for easy entry to the truck camper.

The steps and bracket for our pick-up camper work great. I am only disappointed in the fact that the description for the steps did NOT state that this bracket is necessary to use on a tailgate and i had to order it separate after receiving the steps. i then had to pay expensive overnight shipping rates to get the bracket in time to use on a planned camping weekend. this added a lot of extra expense when i could of ordered it with the steps. you should have a statement in the description of the steps clarifying this.

It seems like we have two of these now. Bought this because it said many people purchase this, but there seems to already be one that came with the steps...

This mount allows too much movement in the stairs. It seems like it should have tighter tolerances.

by:

Don't usually do reviews but was pretty disappointed in the finish of this product. Although it seems well built the silver paint it is coated in was horrible. Fingerprints fused into the finish from handling it wet. Quality control needs to be adjusted.

  • How to Install a Tailgate Adapter for use With Brophy Scissor Steps
    The Brophy Scissor Step Bracket # TSSB will install on the edge of your tailgate. You will have to drill two holes for the L shaped pins. After drilling, all you have to do is simply insert the L pins into those holes and attach you Brophy steps! For permanent installation, use the hardware that comes with your scissor steps and drill holes where the mounting holes are. I am adding a picture that demonstrates how to install using the L pins.

  • Installing Brophy Tailgate Scissor Step Mounting Bracket # TSSB
    When installing the Brophy Tailgate Scissor Step Mounting Bracket # TSSB you will first measure the distance between the two pins on the bracket, on center. Then with your tailgate open and laying flat, you will take a 5/8 inch measurement in from the edge of the tailgate and this is where you will drill the two 7/16 inch diameter holes, spaced apart the distance that you took when measuring the pins on the bracket. I went out to our warehouse so I could take a picture of the instructions...

  • How to Install CR Brophy Tailgate Scissor Step Bracket # TSSB on 2004 Dodge Ram
    The scissor step bracket has two L shaped pins on the inside of the angle iron. Measure the center to center distance between the two pins. You will want to drill two 7/16 inch holes into the tailgate that are the same distance apart as the pins that are 5/8 of an inch back from the edge of the tailgate (see Photo). The L shaped pins would insert into the holes drilled into the tailgate, so that it locks into place, and the steps would clip to the front of the bracket.

    With the bottom of the door at 24 inches on level ground, the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 3 Steps - Steel - Diamond Tread - 18" Wide - 300 lbs # SS03 will have a very slight lean in the tread toward the RV. Unlevel ground will obviously change this and may make this step even more user friendly. To give you the level steps, you would want to use the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 2 Steps - Steel - Diamond Tread - 18" Wide - 300 lbs # SS02 which will reach up to 23 inches. This will...

  • Recommended Scissor Steps for a Pickup Truck Camper With Tailgate Height of 23-24 inches
    The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS03 is what I would go with if I were in your shoes. If you are needing a height of at least 24 inches then it is better to get steps that can extend past your minimum height requirement in case you need a little more height. The Tailgate Scissor Step Bracket # TSSB by Brophy is what you are going to need so that you can install the Scissor Steps on your tailgate.

  • Are the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS05 Correct for a Camper Attachment 37 inches from the Ground
    The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS05 that you referenced have a height of 40" - 48" when they are expanded which would be a little too much for your application. Instead, I recommend going with the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS24 which have a height of 31" - 39" when expanded, plus it features the non-slip tread. We have a bracket for a tailgate # TSSB or an RV # AS2002 if you need one as well as a handrail # AHR4 to assist going up and down the stairs.
