I bought 4 of the larger, rubber chocks. They have worked well for me.

x2 Jack! Tie a rope to the handle to make it easier for the DW to grab them while you sit in the air conditioned truck waiting on her!

That's what I do...is that wrong??

X2 on the fastaways posted above.

For me the best also, locks against the wheels and stops movement right away. Trailer is secure and won’t move a little like regular chocks.

Yeah but you throw them in the truck bed behind the tailgate anyway. The rope leash is a great idea! Duh! One of the few things of value I’ve found at harbor freight...

Yep. I don’t know why the children just didn’t sell the patent to Camco or Lippert

Unfortunately they closed down. From what I heard the couple retired and the children didn't want any parts of the company.

I only use chocks when my trailer is parked at home. Camping I use the BAL x-chock. I have been using mine for 4 years and they are my favorite way to anchor my camper.

Be careful with these. If your tires are real close together they can be very frustrating to use. Buddy said they were awesome and they are for his camper. So I ordered some and my tires are just too close together to use them. They do come in two sizes and even the small ones are just a pain in the butt to use with my tires on my North Point.

So I decided to just stick with the old rubber ones.
