|专利名称：||US10099620 (B1) - Safety step on a hitch receiver for a truck|
|联系人：||SGROI NUNZIO BIAGIO [US] + (Sgroi, NunzioBiagio)|
A step accessory for a receiver hitch for climbing into a truck bed. A step plate connected to the bottom of the receiver tube does not enter into or block the interior space of the receiver tube. The step plate is directly attached to the receiver tube, but not the bumper, the truck, the ball unit, or the tongue of a towed vehicle/trailer. The step plate extends horizontally and transversely to the longitudinal axis of the truck, centered relative to the right and left sides of the truck. Preferably, the step plate does not extend rearward of the opening of the receiver, or above the bottom surface of the receiver tube. The step plate extends under the bumper, distanced from the bottom of the bumper, to provide a toe space, resulting in a safe and stable position for the user's foot to prevent slips and falls.
