I got both of my steps from guys putting pre-made steps in. They cut off a few steps to make it fit and gave me the left overs. Home Depot is the place.

When the step is lowered to the correct position, it moves inward pushing the top into the (upper) corner. Easy!
I have one larger one of those braces, and it goes in the center of the step, rather than 2 small ones on the outside. I'm sure the 2 smaller ones are more stable. But anyway, I think this is just to support the lower step; I don't think it'll do much to support a wobbly top step.
Replacement outriggers are surprisingly inexpensive...but the job of replacing them is quite involved, what with all that has to be dis-assembled in order to get at them.

Looks like you guys got it exactly right, And thanks again for the tips. I simply put a de-burr tool on the drill and shaped things up. The right (worn) side needed cleaning up with the tool. Then I had to grind about 1/8" out of the top of the left side (factory original, not worn at all). Everything locks into place just fine now. This forum is a great place for info!

Thanks guys.

FYI this thread is 8 years old. If you want to get Jim's attention, maybe Quote him via the button below and to the right.

Good luck,

other options from MORryde

I was looking at this old thread as well and if your looking for step options the company I work at has made steps that fit in the doorway, flip out and touch the ground. And they are about half as much as the original AS steps. Below is a link or you can email me if you have any questions.
