How to Install the StepAbove
Remove the step transition strip between the threshold of the existing door and the floor.
With the StepAbove in the downward position, center it in the door opening. Adjust the steps until the hinge plate is centered and flush against the threshold.
With the StepAbove centered and flush against the threshold, attach one fastener in each of the top corner holes where the plate is notched.
Lift the StepAbove and lock into place. Ensure that the latches have engaged with the flange of the door jamb. The latches may need to be adjusted in or out; this can be accomplished by loosening the bolts and sliding it into place. NOTE: Some doors may require the interior wood or trim work to be notched. For assistance with any modification, please call our Parts Department at 574-293-1581.
Lower the steps and then shut both the screen door and the outside door to ensure they close properly with the StepAbove in the lowered position.
Raise the StepAbove into the locked position and secure the hinge plate with the (6) remaining fasteners. There will be a gap between the hinge plate and the threshold. NOTE: The legs of the StepAbove are adjustable and may need to be retracted in order to fit inside the door opening.
Make sure the StepAbove operates smoothly and aligns correctly.
