Video Transcript for Pilot Automotive Hitch Step - Fixed Step - CR-605LED Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number CR-605LED. This is a stainless steel trailer hitch receiver step with the LED lights for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitches. This is from Pilot Automotive. The hitch step is going to help gain easy access to your luggage racks and truck beds as well as your cargo areas. Once it's installed, it's also going to act as a strong bumper guard, so if you're about ready to back into something, the step's going to make contact before the rear of your vehicle. It's going to feature an attractive round 2 styling. The round 2 is going to have a diameter of 3 inches, the LED strip on the face of the step, this is going to come on with your running lights and then it's going to illuminate brighter when your brakes are applied, giving you another brake light at the rear of your vehicle, and a little bit lower than any other brake light location.

This LED strip is going to contain 7 diodes. It's going to give us a measurement of 6 inches long. The step itself, or the tubing, is going to be constructed of a stainless steel construction, so it's going to resiste rust and corrosion. It's going to be topped with a nice non-slip, high impact plastic step pad. That step pad is going to give us an overall length measurement of about 9 inches.

It's going to give us a width, here at the narrowest point, of about 2-5/8 of an inch. Then at the widest point, about 3-1/8 of an inch. The accessories right here up front, these 2 pieces are going to be your spacers. This is going to help remove any room between the shank of the step and the inside wall of your hitch. It's also got some adhesive tape on the back side there for a permanent installation option. This right here is going to be your adapter sleeve.

It simply just slides over the shank and then it's going to convert it from 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch. That way you can fit in either size hitch. Taking a look at the overall width, measuring from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 18 inches. It's going to have a capacity of 350 pounds. The pin holes back here, center on center, they are going to be separated between two of them. Measuring from this one to this one, it's going to measure 1-7/16 inch.

That's going to be the same separation between all the pin holes. The measurement that we have from the center of the closest pin hole to this portion right here, that's going to measure 2-3/16 inch, so this one would measure 3-9/16 inch and this one would measure 4-15/16 inch. The distance that we have from the closest pin hole to the very edge of our step, the outermost point, that's going to measure 6-11/16 inch. This one would measure 8-1/16 inch. This one would measure 9-7/16 inch. I want to go ahead and show you what it looks like with power running to it. That way you can see the LED lights. It's going to connect to your vehicle via the 4-way flat connector. I'm just going to go ahead and make our connections. Then we'll be able to turn off our overhead lights and see what it looks like in a low light setting. There you can see, it sends out a nice, consistent signal. This would be the running light function. Then when we apply our brakes, it's going to illuminate for your brake signal. It's also a very simple installation inside inside of your hitch. We're going to go ahead and put the 2 inch adapter on there. It is going to require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those are available here at etrailer.com. They are going to be sold separately. All the pin holes on this unit are going to measure 5/8 inch in diameter. All you have to do is slide that into your hitch until you get the pin holes lined up. Again, 3 different options to choose from. Just pick the one that's going to work best with your application. Insert your hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock. If you have any room in there, you can apply one of the shims to remove any of that spacing inside of the hitch. That's going to do it for our review of part number CR-605LED. This is the stainless steel trailer hitch receiver step from Pilot Automotive. .

Works great and looks great. I only have 2 minor issues. First, the packaging left a lot of sticky residue on part of the black cover on the end. More of a pain than anything. My other issue is the electrical connection. Between the electrical cord on the step and the electrical outlet cover on my truck, I am not sure how long the wiring will last before it comes apart. I will only use the step when needed to help make it last longer. Otherwise, it is nice looking, sturdy, and works fine out of the box. 667974

part that goes into receiver is starting to rust 610875


Comments
The metal on metal contact that occurs when the step is installed and removed will eventually wear the powder coat which could allow some corrosion to set in. A thin coat of grease will prevent this, and will also make installing and removing the hitch step easier.

Well, it has been a year now since purchasing the Hitch Step for our Honda Pilot and it was a good investment for a couple of reasons. First, it makes it easy for the grandkids to climb up into the back, which comes in handy when the back is a changing area after wet outdoor events. Secondly, the device is not that common and makes identifying our Pilot just a little bit easier in a full parking lot. We really like it! 603552

I originally ordered a similar step ftom another company, I had to cancel after 2 weeks and no delivery. I called Vanessa at etrailer, I described to her what I was looking for and she sugested this step. I really liked the option to adjust the step to extend or retract for different applications. The chrome steel looks great and the LED lights are a huge plus. Great product and outstanding customer service. Thanks again Vanessa 516000

This is a great product with versatility. As a step bumper I can load and unload items from my good rack. It has saved my car bumper from damage twice when I was rear ended. Lastly it is an extra rear light and looks awesome! 467059

Very pleased with product. It was easy to install and adds a personal effect to the look of the care. Most importantly it's a good accessory to alert rear drivers that you are braking. Living in a big city, this hitch extension has prevented many fender bending parking mishaps. Wish I had a larger one. 461598

I had this product for a year now. Everything is great about this product. It does not rust being that I live in a very wet area. Heavy duty. Only issues I have are the wire to plug in was a little short, it didn't reach my trailer plug but I just spliced the wire and made it longer. Second this is the product when in the hitch is not straight it tilts to the right. I tried shimming it but found out that the metal is actually bent that way and no shimming can fix it. Other than that its a good product if you are not OCD about it being not straight. 455222

Nice product. Two things I do not like. I would assume most people would leave this on most of the time as I plan to do. 1. The wire harness is open on both ends. No covering or shielding. 2. The grommet on the back of the unit to too large. The harness can move back and forth freely. This can place a strain on the connections and allow dirt and water to enter into the step. I taped the loose wires and sealed the grommet with silicone. 439457

After some troublesome news that I thought the step would not fit my receiver hitch because it was a 2 1/2" size, I came to a conclusion that they make a reducer so situations like this don't occur. Totally happy with the product, it was every bit as good as I was told. 348065
