They are a small addition that can make a big difference--ramp top lip extensions. Made specifically to fit onto Suitcase Signature, Suitcase Advantage or Trifold Advantage series EZ-Access ramps, the extensions increase the depth of the top lips from 3" to 9". The added length makes the ramps much easier to use over the rear bumper of a van or SUV than without. The extensions have a non-skid aluminum construction and are easy to add or remove as needed.

After upgrading from an 86 Econoline to a '16 Transit, I discovered that the Transit rear doorway had a curved edge rather than straight like the Econoline as well as a deep bumper so the ramp wouldn't extend deep enough into the truck to reliably stay on. This extender does wonders and now there is no problem with staying on the truck.
However, the way it's made there is a seemingly needless almost 2"high short steep ramp on the extender to get up onto the ramp, whereas it was flat before. I wish the angle of that slope was less (although that would make the extender even longer) or that it wasn't there at all so as to avoid having to get over that "bump". The sharp angle of the "bump" does make it dig into the floor better, though.
I also wish there were an extender for the other end, too, since adding extenders to one end but not the other complicates the unfolding of the ramp. The far end from tre truck is no longer touching the ground when unfolding, so it wants to swing toward the truck and requires a contortion from the operator to keep in place and not get in the way. (A video would be clearer than my description.)
Other than that, these extenders let me use a ramp that would not have been possible to use with this van so I'm grateful for that. Ramp and extenders definitely make my life easier. Thanks!

Used on an EZ Access tri-fold ramp to give the needed clearance to keep the ramp from scratching the painted bumper on our van. Easy to install with locking action onto the ramp with one bolt and locking nut to secure. This is an exceptional accessory to the ramp.
