    Those rubber chocks from HF are nice.

    I keep at least half a dozen chocks around my driveways. Some are plastic, some are homemade from 4x4 wood, and one is a HF rubber one. I will say that the HF doesnt hold up well from being ran over with a tire on pavement instead of moving the chock. That's not the chocks fault, though

    HF has discontinued coupons more or less this year. Bummer, the 20% off coupons would get me in the store.

    I second the Harbor Freight chocks....they are the best we've had yet! Much better than plastic...

    I've only seen X-chocks mentioned once here. But when I have one side up on a Lynx block or 2 or 3, my regular wheel chocks won't work on that side. I chock the wheels on the high side (no hammering, just a few good kicks) then put the X-chocks in place. Tighten those suckers down and the wheels are immobilized. The tires would have to skid on the ground/lynx blocks for the trailer to move. They also help a lot with the trailer rocking fore/aft.
    I do like the HF chocks though. I have the yellow plastic ones. My brother has the HF ones. They're way better on asphalt than the plastic ones.

    Upper right hand corner - click on your user id - there is an option for signature, etc.
