We have a 2019 Honda ridgeline and as my wife says, she is vertically challenged only being 5’1” tall. So I decided to order this step to help her as needed when she wanted to get up in the back of the truck. It works great for that and I like the reflector factor for the back of the truck, anything that helps being rear ended by some fool driver. The only down side is that it isn’t as tight in the 2” x 2” trailer hook up as I would like to see, but that’s a small deal. 704812

I am in and out of the back of my van all the time. The fold down hitch step is the perfect accessory to make entering and exiting the cargo area of my van not only easier, but safer! And when not in use, it easily folds out of the way so I don't bust my shin when walking around the back! I highly recommend this item to anyone as a safe and practical method to enter or exit their truck or van!! 845774

Beats stepping on the hitch ball to get on my bumper of my 2017 Nissan Titan XD 4X4. It looks robust and casting has knurls to keep your foot from slipping off. 585523

I bought this step-hitch to use as a "bump" guard on the back of my new Ventrac 3400L tractor. It fits the 2 inch hitch perfectly and I am pleased that it will shield me from backing into things with the new tractor. 573814


Comments
The step-hitch also used as a bump guard is now looking scratched and beat-up: however, my new tractor still is looking good.

The product is very well built and the reflecting abilities is outstanding. The reason I ordered it was that as my wife says “ she is vertically challenged “. The Honda Ridgeline that I put it on is low enough for a man, but some women are just to short so this is just the right thing to have on the vehicle. I also had to order another one only days later, my good friend and neighbor saw ours and she asked if I would order her one too. I think ETrailer should get with truck dealers and have them in their show cases in the parts departments. I ran parts departments for40 years and I would have stocked them for sure!

Hitch step is good quality and easy installation. I mainly use it to make it easy to put shoes on at the golf course. Folds up out of the way when finished. Great product. 501916

This is exactly what I wanted. I have a Jeep and only need to step up when I’m putting on the soft top. It seems well made and even though the fit is a little loose to the hitch, a small amount of electric tape fixed that. 494825


Comments
So after a year I think I probably like it more. It does what it’s supposed to do and doesn’t give me any problems . Still looks good too!

This is a great addition to the hitch receiver. Well made, heavy duty. When I was younger, I just hopped up on the bumper, but now that I'm older, this is a life-saver. 377129

Exactly as advertised. Had to use the second pin hole on my GMC so it sticks out another 1/4 inch or so, but very happy with this product. The receiver lock is impressive and protects my investment $$$. 376334

Ask the Experts about this Carr Hitch Step

  • Recommended Hitch Lock to Secure Carr Hitch Mounted Step
    To secure the Carr Hitch Mounted Step # CARR183242 to your trailer hitch I recommend using the Master Lock # 1480DAT for 2" hitches as it is one of the more well-received locks we carry, which you can see in the customer reviews section of the lock's product page. As for the sticker, it does not light up, it is simply a reflective red sticker; when you fold that part it down it acts as actual step. I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to take a look at.
