Thanks for the responses.

Not looking to come into the money. I am on the defense side and thats all I can say.

As far as measurements - don't have them as the stairs are gone - the pictures are all we have. I would say probably between 18 and 24" wide - and I think they were aluminum

guys wake up here. The OP didn't say he saw these in person. He is saying they are "frames" but I don't think he knows or has seen them in person.

Just because the black grip tape has a shape doesn't mean the metal frames that shape or borders it. its an illusion of sorts.

its a plate, rectangular, uncut with tape slapped on top. Its not tape with a cut-out frame surrounding it t

Theyre exactly what hes using them for step pads like was said above. I remember grandad getting some at the farm coop when I was little. He used them on the ramp from the barn to keep my little ass from slipping with a wheel barrow full of shit.

if you look close thats what it looks like. Thats not what he said though

"I am referring to the metal frame that is surrounding the friction tape/material. These were installed on wooden steps to hold the friction tape down"

Insurance company claims adjuster? If someone here finds the actual product what is his or her finders fee for potentially saving your employer thousands or more on the claim?

or finding another to sue look at the pics more. The tape cutouts around the middle screw hole are not consistent. Home made maybe by the deck installer or some shop

finding the answer won't save anything, It is a question being asked and we do not know the answer. at this point I am more curious than anything else.
I originally thought step pads, but it does not seem to be. the mounting/screw holes are not countersunk. The owner said he does not remember where he bought them or what they were called. he put them down over the friction tape to prevent the ends of the tape from curling up over time.

They look very similar to a transition part used at the end of a pre-fab handicamp ramp. I use to install them for veterans. The only thing is they don't look wide enough.

T-top pads for outriggers screwed onto wooden steps with non-skid tape on them.

I am the only fisherman here? Good grief!
