Eagle HT 29.5 BHDS - Wheel Chocks

Just wondering what everyone is using for a good set of Wheel Chocks on their 29.5's?

BTW, I have to upgraded 16" tires, if that makes any difference?

Thanks,
Dave...

I can attest to the X-Chock. They work incredibly while reducing the dreaded "back and forth" motion of the unit. Great addition. I do also put regular chocks under the wheels. I'm sure the X-Chock would keep the trailer in place. It just wigs me out a little NOT to have chocks under the wheels.

Thanks, this is the same brand I was looking at myself.

Smart move - I believe the X-Chock (or a similar product?) specifically states that they are NOT designed to keep the trailer from rolling, only from rocking. Although that may just be a CYA statement, as I can't imagine the trailer rolling with the X-Chock in place either.

Harbor freight sells a couple of different rubber chocks at good ol' Harbor Freight made-in-china prices. These are very similar (identical?) to the type used for small airplanes Rubber Wheel Chock with Eyebolt

I have some of these. I don't think they work as well as a block of wood, etc.

My concern with them is, if I crank down on them too hard, could they ever mess with the trailer alignment?

If I use tire leveling blocks (the build a block honeycomb stuff) to level the trailer, I can't get the tires chocked on that side. I would rather use the x chocks on this side, and keep a wood block on the ground for the other side.

It doesn't take much pressure or cranking with the X-Choke's to keep the trailer from moving. I use a power drill and just snug it and the trailer doesn't move. I have been on unlevel sites and had zero issues. The X is the best bang for the buck and will last a good many years. I have had cheaper and it wasn't even close to the quality of the X. I hate buying things twice.
