They worked out great! Added stability to the TT.

Here is one I saw a few weeks ago. It is built around a pipe clamp. Click image for larger version

How much wider do you cut your chock? I'm going to make a 2 pair for wide stance axles. They're 17" apart at their narrowest point. Judging from the photos, I'm going to want to be a few inches above that point where the distance is about 19 or 20".

Nice job, I tried and failed. Purchased x-choke 2 pak. Only had to buy the all thread and nuts/bolts. Now I'd have to buy a 4x4 or 4x6, so I decided not to try again. This is a great idea, I just couldn't get it done. Oh well, I do what I can.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, I'm just catching up on some of the mods people have done. I made these chocks for our old Starcraft hybrid, and they work great. They cost almost nothing if you have the stuff on hand.

After 10 years of use, they're finally wearing out. The threaded rod acts like a saw against the side of the hole, slowly enlarging it until they get kind of sloppy. Here's a photo of when they were new.



But that's the beauty of it. When they wear out, you just grab some more scrap lumber and make a new set! I have some PT 4x4 posts sitting outside, so I think I'll use those when I rebuild mine.

The wood ones like the last few shown are like the ones I built for mine and have used for years ... But after having seen the x clocks in action on a friends trailer I believe I am going to get some... The cross bracing on them just seems to be a more solid design to keep the amount of roll to a minimum.

You might think about drilling the hole in the 4x4's a little larger and inserting a piece of pipe/copper tubing/pvc into the hole (slightly shorter than the thickness of the 4x4. That should minimize the "sawing" on the wood, and they should last even longer. Just an idea!

Just out of curiosity, why is your front tire up on a 2X and not the back one? "Inquiring minds want to know".
