Give yourself a confident and convenient step up for any job or adventure with the CURT adjustable channel mount hitch step. This folding hitch step features a solid construction, a dependable weight rating and a hardworking design -- all to give you added functionality on your vehicle.
CURT adjustable channel mounts are a highly versatile towing option. They not only allow for a wide range of vertical adjustment for flexible drop and rise, but they also provide multiple trailer ball options and mounting platforms for towing different types of trailers. CURT channel mounts can also accept the CURT hitch step, adding a useful, adjustable step of the front or rear of the vehicle.
The CURT hitch step attaches to the vertical channel of any CURT adjustable channel mount. It uses two pins and clips to securely fasten onto the channel and can easily be adjusted up or down in 1" increments to accommodate the exact needs of the job and vehicle (channel mount, pins and clips not included).
For enhanced safety, the CURT adjustable hitch step features a textured surface with raised metal treads. This provides a non-skid step and helps resist slipping, even in wet conditions. The step measures a generous 16" wide, offering a comfortable stepping surface. To help keep the hitch step clean, it also features an open cutout design. This allows dirt and debris to get knocked off your boots with each step and to pass through onto the ground, keeping the step and the inside of your vehicle free from excess mess.
Part of the versatility of the CURT adjustable channel hitch step is that it can be mounted on the front or rear of the vehicle -- anywhere you need it! With a rear-mount trailer hitch installed on the vehicle, the hitch step and channel mount can be inserted into the receiver tube for easier truck bed or cargo area access. With a front mount hitch installed, the receiver hitch step provides more convenient access under the hood. This particularly useful when working on larger trucks, vans and SUVs. CURT adjustable channel mounts are available to fit 2" and 2-1/2" receiver hitches, and the hitch step is compatible with all CURT channel mounts.
When the CURT hitch step is not in use, it can simply be folded up and out of the way. The channel attachment bracket is equipped with three sets of holes -- one to mount the step onto the channel, one to secure it in the stepping position and one to secure it in the folded position. Folding up the hitch step when not in use reduces the forward / rearward clearance of the vehicle and helps avoid unnecessary obstructions and risk of injury.
To give this folding hitch step the strength for heavy-duty jobs, it is constructed from cast steel. The use of steel ensures maximum rigidity and allows for a weight rating of 500 pounds. The CURT hitch step is also covered in a highly durable carbide black powder coat finish, protecting it against rain, mud, scuffs and scratches.
The CURT adjustable channel mount hitch step is great for trucks, vans and SUVs alike. It can be used on commercial vehicles to provide a useful step for reaching equipment in the truck bed, climbing up onto a flatbed truck or entering and exiting a delivery van. It is also ideal for non-commercial trucks, providing a convenient extra step for grabbing gear, supplies or equipment from the truck bed during work or on vacations. For any large or lifted vehicle with a front mount hitch, this folding hitch step is also perfect for working under the hood.
NOTE: A CURT adjustable channel mount is required to use this folding hitch step. An adjustable channel mount must be purchased separately.
