Heininger PortablePET Twistep® – The Innovative Pet Stair Step for SUVs.
Now in Stock!!
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.
Purchased this to assist our 80# Lab in & out of our Jeep Wrangler. Works great & swings out of the way when not in use. He took to it right away when getting in but still a little hesitant on using it when getting out.
The step was easy to install, and is easy to manipulate. And there is enough space when it is under the vehicle that I can use it as a step. The step won’t be much good if you have backend full & trying to load your pet but for our day to day, it’s pretty awesome.
We will have to remove when we off-road - we do have 16” clearance from the bottom of the step to the ground - but that should be easy enough to do.
I happy that it works on my full size Ford van
Easy to install and it works as designed. She took to it right away and is perfect for my 50+ lb dog to get in my Xterra
Have been using the twister for several years and just bought a new one. It’s fantastic for the pups. Helps save the shoulders and joints by using when they are younger. It’s also great to sit and change shoes at the trail head!
This is my third twistep and I’m delighted as always. These are well made and easy to use. Great for puppies through older dogs. Really reduces stress on their joints jumping out of SUVs.
