I purchased this step-up for just that, a step-up when my husband bought a one ton van. There was just no way I could reach the door opening and nothing to pull myself up with.
This Pilot Step-Up Cane solved the problem perfectly. Getting out of the van was a problem also as I had to edge myself as far as possible on the bucket seat, extend one leg forward, and slide down, leaving about a one foot distance between me and the ground. I would alternate which leg I put forward to to take the pounding on the ground because I knew that the joint at the top of my leg would be very sore the next day.
Before finding the Pilot Step-Up Cane on the internet I actually stopped going shopping when I knew we were taking the truck. I give this five stars because it literally changed my life and solved a very unpleasant problem.
