TowStep DUO - with Connect+ Parking Sensors

Please note - Commercial vehicles which have parking sensors already fitted will need to be disconnected. We recommend this should be carried out by a qualified auto-electrician who will need to disconnect the original parking sensors. It is therefore suggested that they contact the main dealer before any disconnection as this could affect the vehicle electronics.


Modern vans are increasingly equipped with a complex array of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) designed to improve safety and comfort of the user.

Until now, this has complicated installation of vital accessories including rear access steps where the vehicle is already equipped with original equipment reverse parking sensors.

Rhino Products can now offer a fully integrated solution to this requirement, its called Rhino Connect+

What is Connect+?

Rhino Connect+ allows your vehicles original equipment reversing sensors to be seamlessly integrated directly into your Rhino Products step.

Connect+ is a highly innovative solution which is compatible with many of Europes top commercial vehicles.

Making alterations to introduce an external step with parking detection technology has previously been a time-consuming process, often requiring specialist knowledge, complicated rewiring and of course, added expenditure. Connect+ neatly solves this problem by integrating each OEM sensor into the step via a simple plug and play cable.

- Seamless plug & play connection - full integration to vehicle electronics
- Fast, simple installation fitting process - considerable time savings
- No additional rewiring costs - cost effective solution
- Revolutionary design - a truly innovative system from Rhino

Whats included?

Rhino Connect+ is delivered to you as a complete kit for successful installation:

-The Rhino Products modified with special adapters
-Plug and play cabling and connectors
-4 x panel blanking plugs

Installation is quick, simple and effective. Typical installation time is 15 minutes from start to finish.

How does Connect+ work?

1 - Dismount the OEM sensors from the vehicle.
2 - Click them into place via special adapters and using rear spacers located in the step.
3 - Plug & play - reconnect the sensors, with the male plug going into the sensor and the female plug connecting to vehicles wiring harness.
4 - Fix blanking plugs to cover the space where each sensor was originally located.

Some products are dispatched direct from the manufacturer’s warehouse. Please ensure you have read the DELIVERY section in our Terms and Conditions

NOTE DELIVERY TIMES: These are calculated using ‘working days’ which exclude Saturday, Sunday, Bank Holidays and Festive periods

We wish to advise you, that due to all the current problems caused by Covid - 19 in the way staff are now deployed under social distancing guidance, coupled with the huge increase in online ordering, this has put the whole system under severe pressure, and may inevitably cause some delays in achieving the usual high levels of service.
All Couriers are not guaranteeing a Next Day or Timed Service at this current time.

Whilst most of our customers are receiving their order at the arrival time expected, there have unfortunately been some slight delays with the carriers which are outside of our control.

May we therefore suggest, that should your order not arrive on the anticipated day, and you are not going to be available to receive it in the following days, that you nominate a neighbour who might accept it on your behalf?

In these circumstances it would be helpful if you could leave a clear written instruction attached to the obvious door that the driver would visit, advising of the name and house number of the chosen neighbour. 

Should this not be possible/practical then, the normal procedure of the courier company leaving a card advising you to contact them to rearrange the delivery will apply.

Thank you in anticipation of your understanding and cooperation during these most unusual and difficult times.
