Will the Door Step damage my vehicle?

Can the door latch support a person without breaking?

Absolutely. Per the Society of Automotive Engineers ("SAE") Document J839B: Passenger Car Side Door Latch System - Every vehicle door latch must be able to withstand a vertical force of 2500 pounds and a horizontal force of 2000 pounds without failure. Therefore, the Moki Door Step is guaranteed to support the weight of a person many times over.

Can the Door Step support a person’s weight?

Yes, the Door Step is rated to safely support a 400 pound weight capacity. Aircraft-grade aluminum construction ensures that the Moki Door Step is built to get the job done!

What is the Door Step made of?

The Door Step is die cast from aircraft-grade aluminum, and the bumpers are made of rubber and bolted in for additional protection.

How much does the Door Step weigh?

The Door Step weighs in at just under 2 pounds, but don't mistake it for being weak! Despite its light weight, the Moki Door Step is super strong and can easily support a 400 pound weight capacity.

Is the Door Step painted?

No, the process we use which gives the Moki Door Step its signature bright orange hue is actually epoxy powder coating! The soft dip coating at the hook adds extra protection for the Step and the vehicle.

Will the Door Step rust?

No, not ever. Because of the Door Step's aluminum construction, it is impossible for it to rust!

Why are there cutouts in the Step?

The cutouts in the Door Step help to keep it lightweight (under 2 pounds!) and also help to give you a little more traction when accessing roof.

Why are there so many other lower cost steps on the internet?

The Moki Door Step is the original, patented design; the other products are cheap, foreign knockoffs. Our Rightline Gear Moki Door Step is such an innovative and unique product, that it was only a matter of time before low-quality reproductions would start popping up online. However, legal action is underway and copyright infringers will soon be off the market. We appreciate your support for the Original Moki Door Step and its creator, Zach Brown.
