Long zip ties zipped together would probably be even better. You can't drive the rig with the steps flapping. Not a good design after I got to spend time with it. While the linkage looks strong, its just chromed iron and it fatigues from your weight on the step. I now avoid the very bottom step till I get it supported.
What do you use to support them? Thanks.

Short stack of wood pieces different thickness, some use a small screw jack. For sure a good idea, keeps wear down on joints.
