Hi Gary,

I don't think a step at a tub is a very good idea at all. Even if you installed a couple assist grab bars. Why can't you sit on the edge and swing into the tub? Got a pic?

I'm with Jaz. NEVER put a step inside or outside a tub!

Two reasons:
1. They will be slippery when wet. VERY DANGEROUS!
2. They make the two bottoms of the opposite sides of the tub wall different heights. This will throw off your brain and create a fall hazard.
