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.

This is my 3rd purchase of the twiststep and I can honestly say, it is a must have if you have big dogs. We have one on all our vehicles. Comes in handy for other uses too when out & about. Such as a stand for the dogs’ water bowls. I also use it to sit on when changing shoes

Great item! The platform could be a little more ridged. I use to access my van and the platform has some give.

Great product

Dogs love it! Expensive, yes, but take care of it and it will last a long, long time. First one we got lasted over 20 years until I dinged it backing up. Bought a new one and got fast delivery. Did notice that the screws holding the cover plate would not tighten to keep the plate from flopping. Fixed the problem with two small washers.
