    Go figure, when you give a product an improper name, people tend to think it does what the name says.

    Yep, go figure - but even when Norco includes a warning note in every box of X-Chock(s) sold many still ignore the warning and use them as "chocks" anyway. [B)] FWIW though, a pair of X-Chocks do noticeably reduce camper wiggle.

    That's like buying something called a "battery" but it's not intended to be connected to your electrical system, but instead provides additional tongue weight to help with towing.

    If it's not a chock, they shouldn't call it a chock. Then there would be no need for a warning to ignore.

    Thanks Mike. I'll look again when I'm not so straight out. Are you hacking off the tall end and using the shorter end? I'm trying to envision how this does not detract from the total height you can attain from these. Thank you!

    Donna, you need to cut off the narrow end of the ramp, not the fat end. It really doesn't detract at all. The little bit you cut off is so thin it wouldn't raise the trailer much anyway.

    For what it's worth, I've broken plenty of Lynx blocks, but I'm subjecting them to more weight than a standard TT...expect all plastic to fail every so often. :)

    I think i'm going to order mine today too. I tried sawing away at my Andersen yesterday and I just don't have the time to devote to slowly removing 4" from a product they said would work. My kids were crying to be fed and I gave up. Crazy priorities right? [:P]

    On uneven ground surfaces, sure - but mounting Lynx on a rigid base solves this issue entirely.

    I have done similar to Greyfox.. except I haven't screwed the base set of blocks to the board, I just made an end stops so the blocks won't slide off. This might be something I do next year.

    FYI: Lynx Levelers carry a 10 year warranty...

    Ha! If I could fit boards into my leveled-by-Lynx rig I'd be using boards!
