The Shure-Step® can handle the heavy loads too! Each step is very sturdy and rated at 500 pounds. This is the toughest foot stool you’ve ever seen! With the aging US Population you’re going to see more & more senior passengers on your buses & trains. Older adults can see the bright yellow Shure-Step® and feel secure when stepping in or out of your bus or train. These Shure-Steps® only weigh 8 pounds, they’re so easy to store.
