The black edge was already around the top of the stairs. Just fitted it to sit flush inside.

That looks amazing. So it is just plywoood with tiles on top? Do you have the dimensions that you used to make it fit so well? I got the half inch thickness, looking for width and length. TIA

I just measured the opening at the top of the stairs. The support was 1x3 pt that i had laying around . I put 3 short pieces across the top step and one on either side of the entry door (measured from the bottom of the door to just below the edge where it would make it flush when the plywood was resting on it). It is easy to remove and put in place. I mounted the 1x3 with velcro so i could.remove without doung any damage. Has worked out great.

Can you take a picture with the cover off so we can see how you set the cover in place. Don't know what 1x3 pt is.

Ah, the sunshine state! Here are the pictures of the supports i used. I also sprayed them black so they blended in a little better. On either side i used a cabinate knob to make it easier to install/remove

That makes sense. I think we were trying to figure out how you supported it to make it so flush or least I was. What did you use to anchor the supports, screws? Has anyone actually stepped on it? Do you know what type of weight it would support? Appreciate the help.

I used velcro ,it had sticky on both sides. It supports about 150lbs i tested it. It won't collapse on you but it is mostly there for the dogs and to prevent accidents while going down the road. Ie:dog falling down the stairs. Does work great.

On the Axis/Vegas Mods there is a thread regarding covers for steps.
This is how Ron fixed the problem. Used sticky tiles from HD for surface.
