FenderStep and Fender2step are made from very strong marine grade PVC integrally moulded to our solid rope holds
FenderStep and Fender2step use high grade metal valves with protective dirt/salt screw caps integrated within the rope holds
Every FenderStep and Fender2step is immersion tested prior to despatch, to ensure that each one is leak free and air-tight
EU Community Design 002314344 & UK patent GB2388078
Attach the FenderStep to your boat and use only as follows:
Separately tie two minimum diameter 10mm (3/8") ropes using a carefully formed bowline knot to each rope hold.
Securely tie the other end of each rope to suitable strongpoints on the boat, never use only a single point.
Ensure the step is level and that all the knots are fully secure prior to every use.
Do not use the FenderStep for any loads exceeding a total 100kgs or 225lbs.
If your FenderStep has been supplied deflated the simplest way to correctly inflate it is to use the Dan-Fender adaptor (available from your supplier) to connect to an airline or suitable pump:

Alternatively you can use a standard air compressor fitted with an accessory air pistol and then:
Remove the plastic screw.
Press the air pistol against the metal valve.
Do not overinflate the FenderStep, it should remain easy to make a small “dent” when pressed with a thumb
Replace the protective plastic screw.
You may also carefully inflate with a handpump fitted with a fine plastic (not metal) nozzle, but take care not to damage the valve insert.
We recommend the DAN-FENDER pump as shown below:
