Review of the Heininger PortablePET Twistep Hitch Step


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Heininger PortablePet Twistep, part number HE3045. Bringing Rover along just got easier. The Heininger Twistep saves you the trouble of lugging around a ramp or step-stool and it comes with you. Simply rotate the step around, and once more, and then you're good to go. It's adjustable in and out and up and down so you don't have to worry about it interfering with your spare tire, exhaust, or anything else. It features two step positions, one for you and one for your best friend.

It has a rubberized anti-slip surface and it's powder coated for all-weather durability. The step measures 22 inches long by 19 inches deep here at the center. With it fully extended, from the center of our first hitch pin hole to the outside edge, measures about 44 and a half inches. From the center of our second hitch pin hole to the edge measures about 42 inches. With it folded in those same measurements, we're looking at 30 and a half inches and 28 inches.

With it tucked underneath, from the center of the first hitch pin hole to the outside edge, measures 16 inches. From the center of the second hitch pin hole to the outside edge measures 18 and a half inches. Not only is it going to make it easier for your dog, but let's be honest, if you have a 200 pound mastiff, it's going to make it easier for you. Dingo here only weighs 20 pounds but the step has a capacity of 400 pounds, so bring Beethoven along too. Good boy. Now that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. We'll take it and we're just going to feed it into our receiver tube and line up our pinholes.

Then we'll take our included anti-rattle bolt with our lock washer and thread that through. We're just going to use our 15/16th socket. Good, nice and secure. The nice thing about our anti-rattle bolts, it's going to help reduce all that play and that rattle within our receiver tube and our shank to make it a nice, solid ride for our step. To use it, we're just going to lift up on our T handle and we can spin it either way, just spin it out until it locks into place.

You can use it just like this. It's a perfect people step to get things out of your truck bed. To get it ready for Rover, simply lift up on the blue handle. You can spin the knob either direction until it snaps into place. Then we can drop down our tailgate and load up our best friend. inaudible 00:02:36. That's going to complete our look at the Heininger PortablePet Twistep, part number HE3045. .
