Do you mean the type which are riveted to the lower cowling? Or the type which clamp onto the wing-struts? Or the type which fold-away and are stored?
There are also the type which clip onto the landing gear legs, usually intended for 170/180/185 types.

Give the guys at Atlee Dodge a call. They make strut steps, cowl steps,and a cowl handle so you don’t kill yourself climbing up and down.
