Removable Side Step

My wife has been bugging me to build her a side step to get into the D90--I do not really want one because I always use my sliders when wheeling, so I made a quick, removable one for her. She is a girly girl, so I painted it pink. It slips over the slider and attaches with a single bolt (nut is welded on far side) so it is very quick on, off, and small/light enough for storage. It can hold my weight (almost 200lbs) so it should be fine for my wife who weighs about 1/2 that. This topic has come up before, so I thought I would help for other cheap bastards who need something like this...
