Action
Manual: Release safety catch, slide step out until fully extended. After use, retract step and secure with safety catch to keep step closed in canister.

Safety Mechanisms
Manual: Has a warning buzzer which is activated by a magnetic sensor unit inside the Easy Step Manual so that the operator does not proceed to drive off without first closing the step into the canister.
