The top of your car is kind of a no-man’s land. Whether you’re washing and waxing or stowing gear, that middle portion of your roof is always out of reach. That’s where the Rightline Gear 100660 Original Moki Door Step comes in handy. The door step is simple enough in design. It features a hook that is compatible with all vehicles in both the front and rear doors.
The hook connects with your door’s latch and provides a platform—or step—that you can stand on to reach into the middle of your car’s roof. The platform measures 8.75 inches long and 3 inches wide, providing plenty of space for you to stand. The step has a rubber bumper and is coated to protect your paint job. It’s also made of aircraft grade aluminium, so no worries about it bending, warping, or breaking.
When you’re done with the step, you can slip it into your centre console or glove box for storage.
But can your door latch actually hold up to that kind of abuse? According to government safety testing protocol, the latch must be able to withstand a vertical force up to 2,500 pounds—so unless you’re carrying an elephant on your shoulders, it should be just fine. The bigger question is whether or not you have the original Rightline Gear Moki Door Step. There are a lot of knock-offs, so make sure that you get the one that started it all, and is still doing it right today.
