    This turns out to be very effective for my wife who has balance issue going down the steps.

    All I did was building a transition to connect the ramp (6' from Discount Ramps) and the existing step in storage position. She is able to handle this small step. If I have to I can make it flush with the floor. That will be the next upgrade.

    The Handrail is made of 2 pony clamps and some PVC pipes. No glue needed.

    Slick! Nice work. Love the clamp/pvc handrail. GENIUS.

    I dig it! I'm about to figure out something similar for my son's narrow wheelchair (which actually fits through the door, surprisingly).
