Let’s face it, when it comes to strapping your board, bike or lengths of 4 x 2 to the roof rack, it is always, well and truly, a pain in the backside. You either end up chucking the straps over the top and hope they don’t twist or dink the paint, or you end up balanced precariously with a wet or sandy foot on the seats or wheel. Luckily there is a new product set to come to market, called the Moki Doorstep which cleverly hangs on your vehicle’s existing slam catch and provides a perfect step to reach up above the roof rack.
Designed by Zachary Brown the Moki Doorstep is crafted from high-grade aircraft aluminium and features a non-slip surface that can support up to 300 lbs. The Doorstep also comes with protective magnetic stickers to protect the vehicles doorjamb. It is such a simple idea and it is hard to believe it has taken this long for someone to take a ‘step’ back and find an easy and compact solution to this age-old problem.
After working on 5 prototypes Zachary now believes the Doorstep is as good as it can be and is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter to enable him to place a bulk order and in doing so keeping the retail place to a minimum. At time of writing, with 20 days still to go, Zachary has smashed his funding target of $2000 and currently has the backing of 951 investors who have pledged an incredible $44590.
It is not to late to be a part of the Moki Doorstep revolution, and you can still make a pledge on the official Kickstarter page. Unfortunately I am a bit late to the party and some of the best Early Bird deals have gone, but you can still secure the Moki Doorstep in either a four pack, a double or a single at a great price up until Thursday 8th of February.
The official Kickstarter campaign video can be seen beneath this article, and you can check out the remaining packages on the Moki Doorstep funding page here. Let us know what you think about the Moki Doorstep below and what mishaps have you had loading things onto your roof rack in the past?
