another needed modification..

with our "flipped" axels, I need a little extra step now and again. so I make this... used scraps and misc hardware. total cost less than $10 mostly due to stainless hardware and a can of flat paint. The extension arms use the pins located on the side as the main support, the bolts are just there to keep it from coming off. It can be removed in less than 30 seconds with wing nuts.

Brilliant! It would be even cooler if you could find a way to keep it on when folding the steps, but still...very nice job!

Waaayyyy kewl! That might make my to-list after I finish the rest of my TT chores. We are currently using an exercise step like you find at Academy Sports. I sure use it now more than I ever did when it was on the house patio.
