There is no doubt that getting on and off the boat always becomes more challenging. The fender is not designed for standing, and the tongue of the boat can be slippery and dangerous when loading and unloading the boat. Trick Step of Mark Peiser Manufacturing, Inc. used their custom steps to connect to the bass boat trailer, solving the trouble of getting in and out of the boat from the picture. They also look cool.

I just put one on my boat trailer and I want to share the details with you.

The installation is very simple. Basically, two wrenches are needed, and a partner may be needed to fix the steps. For my boat, I can easily complete it in 10 minutes.

Trick Step has strict tolerances, is built like a tank, can easily support up to 450 pounds, and has neat and precise welds. The Trick Step is installed on the trailer’s leading post and comes with everything you need, including washers, boats and nylon coated nuts to ensure its tightness and safety.

After determining its position, place four bolts on the side of the step, you can position the board on the back and lock it with the two provided standard 11/16 inch nuts to fix it in place. Close to them allows one person to position the nylocks and washers on the other two bolts. Once placed, it is easy to remove these nuts and replace the nylon locks. 

There is also a simple operation video on the Trick Step website. 

My knees are not good and it is almost ridiculous to watch me get in and out of the boat. I look like a walrus, most of the time I use a boat without Trick Steps to climb up and down the rocks.

Using Trick Step, I can easily get in and out of the boat by walking up the steps, even for those with balance problems, the convenient grab bar is also very simple. Those who are less affected by gravity will like how quickly they can get in and out and speed up the loading and unloading process, especially alone. Even for an old angler like me, my feet in and out of the boat are more stable and lighter. Before I get one, I don't know what I missed.

MLF Big5 professional player Bill McDonald was an early adopter of Trick Step, and he said it best.

"I used all the tools I could use when I was fishing, why don't I also use them to get in and out of my boat?" McDonald said. "I have been on the boat for many years, and I believe it is also a tool to expand my career. Too many times I have seen anglers have difficulty getting in and out of the boat, and the skill steps exclude it."

Trick Step is a detachable ship entry step, made of mild steel square tube and TIG welded to achieve strong, long-lasting integrity. All components are coated with marine industrial tuff coating to eliminate wear and extend their service life.

The stepped alignment is suitable for tall and short people, and the non-slip material on the steps has a strong grip and firmness. For the record, I recommend them from the point of view of material and function, and will always advance for my boat.

Trick Step customer service is second to none, applicable to Steps for Ranger, Phoenix, Vexus, Triton, Tracker, Legend, Skeeter, Falcon and Nitro ships. They also build custom steps for Lund, Champion, G3, Bass Cat, Xpress, Stratos, and many others.

The retail price of Trick Step is approximately US$490.00. It can be found on
