Heininger PortablePET Twistep® – The Innovative Pet Stair Step for SUVs.

BONUS: FREE GROUND SHIPPING TO All 48 CONTINENTAL STATES (Alaska & Hawaii require additional fees)

Twistep is an instant, multi-use step that helps your dog enter and/or exit the vehicle. It attaches to the hitch receiver of your vehicle and stores under the bumper when not in use.

Twistep provides your pet with lower-impact, lower-stress access into and out of a vehicle. Repeated jumping into and out of a vehicle can aggravate or even cause serious conditions like arthritis, leg injuries, back sprains and other spinal damage. And lifting a large dog into a vehicle isn’t easy!

Twistep helps dogs of all ages. Young dogs can avoid unnecessary stress on growing hips and elbows.  Active dogs can appreciate a step up at the end of a long day of hiking, hunting and other outdoor activities.  Twistep provides older dogs, who may suffer from arthritis and who can no longer enter a vehicle on their own, with a much-needed assist.             

The TWISTEP fits most SUV's. We have another model made specifically for a pick-up truck. 

Note: The following vehicles require the TWISTEP Extension Bracket (item #3053) to provide additional clearance for the spare tire:

  • 2006 - Present Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2006 - Present GMC Yukon
  • 2006 - Present Cadillac Escalade
  • 2006 - Present Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2014 - Present Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • 2018 - Present Ford Expedition

A minimum of 16” ground clearance is required from the lower-edge of the receiver.  It does not fit a 2019-Present Subaru Ascent and most mini-vans due to either the bumper configuration and/or ground clearance.

Nice but doesn’t fit my 2025 VW Touareg so have to send it back

Terry Peasley

The twistep is well made, easy to use and my 8 year old large lab took to it very easily. It will definitely save my back from assisting him into the 4-Runner.

Great step for my Wagoneer

Bought for my Wagoneer. Ordered the extension but didn't need it. All of my dogs are quickly learning to use it. Easy on and off if I go to the car wash

Too soon to tell…

I only recently installed your product on my Truck. While my dog seemed to take to it almost immediately, I cannot attest to its quality of construction or function. Please check back in 50 weeks and I’ll be able to share a more informed review.

Jeep step

Second one we’ve owned. Works good for our American Bulldog. Have a high jeep and don’t want our dog jumping out without a step. Much easier to use than hauling a ramp.
