Tight clearance on lower step

On our 2015 29RLS Wildcat the lower step has very tight clearance as it folds up to close. Being a tightwad I Chose to make mine out of outdoor carpet from Home Depot and zip tie them on. The second step pad wants to curl a bit on the front edge as the lower passes.

I would get some outdoor construction adhesive and glue it down.

Easy and cheap fix. Go to an Ollie's or similar place that sells square foot outdoor carpet panels with sticky back ($.79), cut them in half and you have 2 step covers. Can easily be replaced. I bought extra but haven't needed to replace yet in over a year. Got that info from this forum

We've got the carpet, held on by the springs and steps work well. There are 2 styles, a straight design and one that is curved. Our steps are curved, so we use the curved style and it works well. We have them on both our sets of stairs.

Rhody- the clearance for the third step on mine to fold onto the second was too small. I did as many others did here and pick up patio carpet from HD and a large grommet kit and built my own. I like Oldcoot's way of the self sticking carpet- just always weary of how that adhesive holds up to the heat in my area. Usually if it's not VHB tape- I can't use it!
