available only through our dealers

Transform Your Entry and Exit with a Touch of Innovation

Are you feeling the extra effort it takes to climb in and out of your raised 4×4? Clearview® Power Boards are the revolutionary step towards effortless access without compromising your vehicle’s ground clearance.

Elevate Your Side Step Safely and Seamlessly
At Clearview Accessories, we understand the increased challenge of entering and exiting an off-road vehicle that’s set up for adventuring. That’s why with Clearview® Power Boards, comfort meets convenience right at your feet.

Our retractable side steps are the ultimate blend of utility and sophisticated engineering, designed specifically for the 4×4 owner who craves accessibility paired with performance.

Intuitively Integrated for Ease and Security
Crafted to perfection, Clearview® Power Boards are snugly installed under your vehicle, spanning from wheel arch to wheel arch on both sides. They’re cleverly synched with your vehicle’s doors — deploying a strong stepping platform when you need it and retracting back to preserve the sleek profile of your 4×4 when you don’t.

Smart Side Steps That Respect Your Journey
We prioritise safety just as much as simplicity. In case of any resistance, our Power Board’s safety feature ensures that the step holds its position. Once the obstruction is clear, simply opening and closing the door reactivates the Power Board. This blend of intuitive technology and user-centric design is what makes Clearview® Power Boards an unmatched travel accessory.

Robust Build, Refined Experience
Clearview® Power Boards aren’t just about the ease of access. They’re engineered to endure:

  • A substantial 300kg loading capacity per step means they’re ready for the heavy lifting.
  • A safety cut-off feature for uninterrupted protection.
  • Solid mounting with 2 or 3 brackets per side, tailored to your 4×4 model, for unwavering stability.
  • Advanced IP68 waterproof-rated motors because adventure doesn’t wait for weather.
  • An OEM fit nature, eliminating the need for new holes and preserving your vehicle’s integrity.
  • No Hassle, Just Resilience. Your adventures are free-spirited, and so is the maintenance of Clearview® Power Boards — free from constant upkeep, easy to clean, and ready when you are.

Trouble getting in and out of your vehicle? Revolutionise your travel experience with Clearview® Power Boards.

If your vehicle is built for off-road and has been lifted for clearance, stepping in and out of the vehicle can take more effort! Clearview® Power Boards provide a safe stepping surface without sacrificing all-important clearance!

These retractable side steps provide an easy and safe way to step in and out of your vehicle. 

Clearview® Power Boards are fitted under the vehicle, running along the length of the vehicle between the wheel arches on both the driver and passenger sides.

Clearview® Power Boards are triggered by the vehicle’s door sensor. When the door opens, the Power Board is activated and automatically lowers up to 300mm, from door sill to lowered board (depending on model) to a convenient stepping height. When the door closes, the Power Board will automatically retract back to the body of the vehicle.

The inbuilt safety feature activates if any resistance is felt on the step resulting in the step holding its position. Opening and closing the door again will deactivate the Power Board’s safety stop.

With 300kg load capacity, safety cut off feature and IP68 rating on the motors, accessing your vehicle is as easy as one step up.

Caring for your Clearview Power Boards

Whilst the motors don’t require maintenance, regular routine cleaning will help ensure the continued smooth operation of your Clearview Power Boards. 

  • Using a garden hose, rinse away any loose dirt and grime that has built up on the Power Boards, their arms, and the areas around them.
  • Fill a bucket with warm water and mild car wash, and gently clean the Power Boards with a soft towel. Any hard-to-remove substances can be spot cleaned with a road grime & tar remover, ensuring to re-wash that area afterwards. Rinse well with clean water afterwards.
  • Dry the Power Boards and their motorised arms with another soft towel.
  • If your powder coated Power Board arms are losing their shine, you can apply a thin layer of high-grade non-abrasive car wax after they’ve been cleaned. Wipe all the wax off once its dried and the powder coat should look like new again! Use a car wax brand that contains a UV blocker or UV inhibitors. Do not use compound-type waxes as they contain abrasives that can harm the powder coating. More information on maintaining powder coated surfaces can be found here.
  • Avoid detailing sprays to give a high shine on the tread or step as it can make it slippery and unsafe to stand on.
  • Stay away from harsh chemicals as they can degrade the protective finish or discolour it.
  • Stay within the load-bearing limits of your Power Boards. If more than one person stands on a power board and exceeds its capacity, it could bend the board or break the arms.

Pressure Washing Warning

When using a power washer on your vehicle – please take care not to subject the Power Board to the pressured water spray. High Pressure water washing of the Power Boards can affect the electrical operation by forcing water into electrical connections. Although the Power Board components are sealed, they are not designed to handle high pressure water directly. Damage resulting from water ingress from high pressure devices is not covered under warranty.

What are electric side steps?

Electric side steps are an advanced type of running board that automatically extends from under a vehicle’s doors when the door is opened, and then retracts when the door is closed. They are designed to make it easier for passengers to get in and out of high vehicles by providing a sturdy step that lowers to a more accessible level. The electric mechanism is operated by a motor, which is activated by a sensor when the door is opened or closed.

Why do I need electric side steps?

Clearview Power Board electric side steps are great for anyone who has difficulty getting in and out of high vehicles, or for those who want to make it more accessible for passengers. They can also be helpful for parents with young children who may need help climbing in and out of the vehicle. Moreover, they can improve the overall appearance of the vehicle and add a touch of luxury.

Electric side steps are a practical and worthwhile investment for your vehicle.
