Review of the Carr Tow Hook Mounted Step

Today we're going to be looking at the Carr Custom-Fit Tow-Hook Mounted Step. Part number is CARR155012. Maintenance under your hood has never been easier than with the Carr Custom-Fit Tow-Hoot Mounted Step. It simply attaches to your truck's factory tow-hook, giving you the height you need to get the job done. The molded step is textured for sure footing. When not in use it simply folds up and reveals the chrome finish for added style. It also comes in handy when washing or waxing your hood. The step measures 5 inches long by 2 and 1/2 inches wide, and it has a 650 pound weight capacity, and it's a no drill installation, and it comes with all the hardware you need to get it installed.

The whole thing's made out of a die cast aluminum, so it's going to be strong, durable, and rust-proof. Now that we got all the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. You'll need to grab your top portion of your bracket, the big washer, and then the bolt with a flat washer and then a lock nut on it. What we want to do is first take our top portion of our bracket, we're going to set it in place on our hook here. Then, we'll take our bolt and just kind of feed it down through just like that. Take the big, flat washer, put it underneath, then followed by the lock nut. Now, once we get that hand tightened, we can just grab a 3/4 inch socket or a wrench and tighten it down.

The socket wrench I'm using is part number PT20104-38524. Once we get it angled and positioned where we want it, we can tighten it down all the way. Once we've got it good and snug, we can attach our step. Now, when we bring in our step, let's go ahead and open it up and that's going to reveal our mounting locations. We'll take it, we'll line up our holes, grab our two bolts, set those in position. Then, we can grab our two flat washers and our two lock nuts.

We'll just put those on back, and tighten them down. Now, we'll just tighten it down with an Allen Wrench. You will need to provide your own. Great, now let's try it out. Works great. That's going to complete our look, the Carr Custom-Fit Tow-Hook Mounted Step.
