Locks came with our x-chocks. Cheepies, but serve as just one more hoop a thief would have to go through to take off with the tt or steal the chocks. We usually don't lock them until we re-tighten the chocks usually a half hour later as we usually have swelled tires when parking from a long day's travel

A ratchet also came with each one. We place the chocks so we can tighten them from the top of the chock.

One of the First Things to Buy for a New Camper

Question.. when using the x-chock is a chock required on both sides of the TT or is one sufficient?

I think two is the best way to go. I thought I bought them as a pair but I can't recall.

I set them up for use on the top. As related in some other posts. They come with a handy ratchet. Which in emergency situations fits most stabilizer jacks from my understanding.

I would recommend two. You can't stabilize your camper too much. I'm big on trying stop the jiggle as much as possible. Nothing more aggrivating lying in bed and feeling the jiggle deep into the back of your neck, I have teenagers.

From my experince one helps a lot. At first we just had one. Then I found another at a swap meet and I bought it. (saved a lot of $$). The second one didn't make as much difference as the first. My next move is to buy two more stabilizers.

Anyone got information on these things:

They look handy but I have yet to see anyone using them.

I think I'm going to go with the Steadyfast system. It is simpler, easier to install, and easier to maintain, etc. I've read a lot of good reviews over the past month and am hoping to order in the next couple of weeks. Have a long trip planned in June and want them functional by then.

That said, I've heard very good things about the JT setup as well. I think either way you go will product good results.
