Moki Car Door Step

There are times in life when we all need a leg up—that little boost whether it’s figurative or literal. Then there are the times that all but the very tall need a leg up—getting gear onto or off of a vehicle’s roof. Car roof racks and rooftop cargo carriers are a great convenience. They solved the problem of long drives squashed into a car, wrapped around skis or sitting on a kayak. But there was the problem of not being able to reach up onto a car roof without standing on the car seat or hauling a step stool out of the house and then back in. And then Zach Brown created the “leg up” that most of us need—the Moki Door Step.

Zach and his wife Alyssa love the outdoors. When Zach, a Firefighter Paramedic, needed to work a 12-hour shift, Alyssa hated missing one of those perfect ski days with soft, fluffy, fresh-fallen snow because she was too short to secure her skis onto the rack. Zach noticed that plenty of others had the same problem. In fact, with certain vehicles, even the taller Zach struggled with getting equipment up on the roof. It took a few years and many prototypes, but finally Zach’s vision was a reality—a patented step that attaches temporarily to the U-shaped slam latch on a vehicle’s door and provides a solid, stable platform for its user to easily access the roof. Load and strap down a cargo carrier and boxes and secure canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, skis, snowboards and bikes. It’s a hundred times easier to take your gear down from the roof while standing comfortably on the balanced platform. It’s also nice for washing or waxing your vehicle’s roof or keeping the sunroof clean.

The Moki Door Step attaches and detaches in seconds. Simply hook the step over any one of the vehicle’s U-shaped door latches. A rubber bumper and coated hook keep the device from denting or scratching the door frame. The step measures 8.75” x 3” x 5.25,” large enough and sturdy enough no matter what your shoe size, and is made of durable aircraft-grade, heat-treated aluminum capable of holding up to 300 pounds. All the way through the design process, Zach kept safety concerns in the forefront—not only due to the “safety first” aspects of his profession but also due to his education at Eastern Kentucky University in Fire Prevention and Safety.

When you are finished using the step, you can fold it and conveniently store it in the center console, glove box or spare tire compartment.
