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.

It's a sexual supplement, called Captain Boss Bully Ruby 10000. My wife and I both took one each. We both started shaking horribly uncontrollably, our heads started throbbing, and we started sweating profusely. I started throwing up she didn't. Both of us had problems with our eyes.... Eyes were bloodshot red and super glassy. Don't know what's in those but it's nothing like the pink pussycat pill or the Rhino pills. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Sweating, Shaking

It has been sitting there for 4 days with no movement. I’m getting really nervous about whether... my package will arrive. I need what’s in that box. No response to my inquiries thus far.

I have had two packages that have 'gone missing' with USPS and have now had to refund customers. The packages never seem to leave NJ and both contained the same single items (a CD). The first small media mail package was sent on March 15th, 2022 -->... Departed post office in Pitman, NJ on Mar 15 --> arrived at South Jersey NJ Distribution Center March 15 @ 3:54pm --> March 19th - In transit to next facility and no updates after that. During April: spent a few calls completing the 'missing mail' forms both electronically and speaking to 'investigators' who promise to call back. When I receive call-backs it's to say that my missing mail electronic form 'wasn't fully filled out' or that 'the missing report action has not been updated' or that they are 'now pushing it forward.' No notifications from the USPS since then. My second package that I am going to have to refund the customer for was another small media mail package with CD sent April 25th 2022 --> USPS in possession from Sewell NJ --> April 25 2022 Departed Post Office Sewell NJ --> April 29 2022 "In transit, arriving late". It is now May 17th and still no package to the customer.
