Foldable Car Door Step Stand Pedal - Access to Vehicle's Top Roof Both Feet Stand Pedal Ladder for Most SUV Truck Jeep Black (Fit F150), United States
2 months ago
A product being advertised on Amazon and across social media, a detachable step plate that attaches to the latching mechanism of a vehicle and rests in the door jamb, has the potential to cause severe injury or death, damage to vehicles, and potential harm to bystanders. It poses a major fall risk, braces against a part of the vehicle that can be damaged easily, can cause broken bones and the chance of slamming the head against the vehicle and ground causing severe injury, laceration, impaction, and death from the fall. It is a direct threat to the elderly, children, and the average targeted consumer. Under no circumstances is this product ok to be selling at all. That spot of your car is not mean to hold that much weight under those circumstances. Repeated stress on that weakens it. It also pulls it out of alignment in small increments causing progressive worsening of stressors on the door hinges, the weather stripping and seals on the door from extra pressure along the bottom, and potential problems with the locking mechanism so that one day when you think it's locked it won't be. Or the latch decided to not properly catch and opens while driving. Not to mention the lack of propper safety measures for yourself in this instance alone. The step plate can easily rotate under the foot and become dislodged due to stress on the locking mechanism and pressure on the door jamb where it's not intended to be placed. Not all vehicles have the same door jamb construction either making this even more of a risk that it doesn't rest in the same way on all vehicle models posing even more threat to the user and the property around them plus the vehicle.
Perhaps even more concerning is at least one model mentions that "The wide platform of the pedal offers plenty of stability, enough room for nearly both feet, and can safely hold up to 400lbs." NEARLY both feet. This is even more concerning as it tells the consumer that you can't fully rest your entire self safely on the product as they intend you to. You can't prevent a fall if you can't even fully stand on the step. It also fails to address what size foot it is referring to in the first place. Foot sizes vary greatly. This product and all others like it being sold are extremely dangerous and are putting lives at risk and utilizing a part of a vehicle in a way strictly forbidden by vehicle manufacturers for the safety of the consumer. This may even void the warranty of the vehicle in some cases of damage.
For an example of one of the offending products you can see the following listing on Amazon.com
Also note in this particular version that it states it sits even higher than others like it increasing the chance and risk involved as well. The trend of these devices on social media is alarming. And the threat is great.

FDA Recall date: June 08, 2022
6/6/2022, at 2323:43 to be more precise. A significant and extensive sonic boom tore through our house, woke us, terrified our dogs and causes creaking that continued for several more seconds. It is not the “sound of freedom.” It is poor and unaware flying. It is also... profoundly disturbing especially in these crazy times. Our dogs didn’t settle for an hour. I didn’t settle until almost 3 am. This can’t be allowed by city ordinance. Extremely disruptive. I do have it on our doorbell and on inside house camera. It was so loud, it tripped the recordings.

My baby princess is five years old. I used to get her good n fun kabobs and about a six months ago she tried the dreambone wrapped in chicken and she liked them alot and I have been buying them at 18 dollars a bag to make... my baby very sick in so many ways she has choking problems she has been having blood in her poop and is deathly sick now. Remind you at the end of the day I don't have anyone else she is it. I hold on to her and she's very spoiled and is why I wake up and work and she's my world. I had her mom 10 years and I didn't know that it was the treats. I let her eat as much of them as 30 in day and I feel aweful and this company is wrong and I am not going to stop until something is done about it I just really am in shock. My mom called 911 even one day she was choking. I could not imagine the thought of losing her. I've had her serviced and I've lost twins and she is a child and every single pet parents in the world is about to get the truth of this place because it's terrible and dreambone shouldn't be doing this. At almost $20 a bag at that. This place needs to be stopped and not all people can always afford the vet and struggle everyday and lives are hard enough without the worry and deaths of our pets.i can't even believe people are doing this seriously. | Symptoms: Bloody Stool
