The SECURITYMAN 2 Pack Wheel Chocks are designed for use with RVs, trailers, trucks, and campers and have a weight capacity of 20,000 pounds. Since they are bright orange, they are a highly visible reminder that you should remove them before you drive away, and are made of polyurethane, which means these chocks don't stink like traditional rubber chocks often do.


Constructed to work in all types of weather, these chocks have grips to provide support even on slippery surfaces. Pre-drilled holes allow users to secure them using a rope or chain, and the molded grip handles make them easier to carry and position. Unfortunately, there have been some complaints that these chocks don't grip well on sealed and smooth garage floors. Some users also prefer chocks constructed of rubber.


The Ironton Trailer Wheel Dock Chock is a novel solution to the problem of keeping your trailer where you left it. Instead of using something to block the larger drive tires, the small rubber donut is designed to have the small pivoting trailer jack wheel lowered onto it. Neat! Some commenters have even used the Ironton Trailer Wheel Dock Chock to keep their trailers from sinking into the grass and mud, since the dock spreads out the area the trailer wheel sits on.


If the wheel chocks will be used in a construction environment, consider getting them in a bright color such as orange or yellow. This will help with the visibility of the chocks, amping up the overall safety of the site. As a rule of thumb, metal is the most durable, with rubber, and plastic following. The way the chocks were manufactured and the overall quality of the materials also affect durability.

Headquartered in Angola, Ind., Vestil Manufacturing is a family-owned and operated business that was founded in 1957. They make a lot of products for material handling, so a heavy-duty wheel chock is a natural next step. They make the Vestil Wheel Chock, Serrated Steel.


A: The best kind to use is a wide-base rubber or metal chock to resist soil compression. The last thing you want is for your chock to sink into the ground, rendering it ineffective. Take extra care to chock your vehicle on this terrain and use more than two chocks.


This Buyers Products aluminum chock will work on paved surfaces as well as on ice and snow. It's strong enough for semi-trailers, trucks and any other larger vehicle in your fleet, so it can surely hold your little Honda Civic while you change the oil. At only 3.54 pounds, it isn't too heavy and you can easily throw it into your trunk or onto your workbench. Keep in mind, however, that this price is just for one aluminum wheel chock. We recommend having two at your disposal.


These durable rubber MLTools wheel chocks have a little handle for easy carrying. They are sold as a pair and each weighs about 13 ounces. These are best used on lightweight cars or on other wheeled recreational vehicle-related items you may have in the garage or shop like forklifts and floor jacks. Amazon users give these rubber wheel chocks 5 stars for ease of use and stability, and say they provide plenty of grip. Plus, these MLTools WC283 wheel chocks are made in the good ol' USA.


Leave it to Harbor Freight to provide a good, affordable rubber wheel chock. It weighs about 4 pounds and costs a mere $8 for one chock. This solid rubber chock has a handle for ease of use and a nonslip, oil-resistant surface allowing you to rest easy when throwing it behind a trailer wheel.

We like these solid rubber wheel chocks for their 7-inch height, making them ideal for trucks and SUVs with larger tires. These heavy-duty rubber chocks are oil-, moisture- and UV-light resistant and can also withstand extreme temperatures when exposed to the elements behind a vehicle tire. Each chock block weighs 6.2 pounds and has three reflective yellow strips for high visibility. There is even a handle to make it easy to position behind a trailer rear wheel. One caveat: Many Amazon reviewers say these tire chocks emit a less than pleasant smell and recommend letting them sit outside in the sun for a few days before use.


If you've got a double-axle travel trailer that needs chocking, these Extreme Max heavy-duty interlocking tire chocks are a great choice. This plastic wheel chock set can be used singly but can also be locked together for tandem axle trailers or make a great RV wheel chock. The individual chocks measure 9 inches long by 8 inches wide by 5 inches tall. The interlocked tandem wheels configuration for RV tires measures 18 by 8 by 5 inches. These plastic chocks feature a nonslip rubber base and weigh about 3.5 pounds each.


If your car moves at all while the wheels are chocked, you might find it difficult to remove a wheel stop from behind a tire. For those circumstances, we like these Abnaok RV Camper Wheel Chocks for the built-in rope handle. Just one good tug and each RV chock should come free of a car or travel trailer tire. These chocks are made out of bright blue plastic so they are easy to see and they weigh only a little more than 1 pound each.


If you're like me you're always trying to save space in the garage, these plastic Camco wheel chocks are for you. These are stackable, keeping their storage footprint down. These tire chocks work best on cars with a wheel size of up to 26 inches in diameter. Many reviewers found them to not be sturdy enough to use with an RV or heavy travel trailer, though, so consider springing for these chocks for lighter-duty vehicle applications. Each chock weighs 9.6 ounces and they are made in America to boot.


If you need to save space in your garage but need a bit more strength, try these foldable, drop-forged steel wheel chocks. We like the cool red color of these Torin wheel stabilizer chocks, which makes it hard to forget you chocked your wheels, and they do stack up nice and tidy. However, they aren't very tall, so we recommend using them on a flat surface only. Each chock weighs less than 2 pounds.


These heavy-duty Roblock rubber chocks come with a 30-inch rope to easily pull them out at the same time when chocking the front and rear of a wheel. They are weather- and oil-resistant and feature reflective tape for easy visibility. They employ molded rubber on each side for plenty of grip. Each wheel stabilizer is pretty heavy, 6.6 pounds, and at only 3.9 inches tall we recommend using them only on flat surfaces. However, they still get an Amazon customer rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars.


If you want to add your own rope or chain, grab yourself a pair of these Roblock rubber chocks with a built-in steel eye bolt. Even if you don't want to add anything to your wheel stabilizer chocks, the eye bolt makes for an easy carry point. Each weighs 4.4 pounds and while Amazon reviewers claim they hold vehicles on a slope, at just under 4 inches tall we recommend sticking to using them only on flat surfaces.


This Extreme Max motorcycle wheel chock earns an Amazon Choice designation for its versatility and stability. It can hold wheels from 17 to 21 inches in diameter and from 3 5/32 and 7 3/32 inches wide. This motorcycle wheel chock is made of matte black powdered coated steel and has a solid front cross bar and boot. One person can roll the motorcycle into the V-shaped cradle, which then pivots with the wheel and locks it in place. The deluxe tire chock version comes with two nylon ratchet straps for travel. At 22 pounds this motorcycle chock is heavy, but it gets the job done incredibly well.


A wheel chock is a small ramp that keeps your wheel from doing what it wants to do naturally: roll. It provides a small uphill grade and a bit of friction that your wheel can not overcome without outside force. For smaller cars plastic wedges do just fine, although they're not as durable as metal or rubber chocks. Rubber chocks are good for larger trucks and trailers. Metal chocks are the ne plus ultra: They won't offgas like some rubber chocks do and won't break down after time spent in the hot sun. Further, metal chocks are the best to use in ice and snow.


In general, a wheel chock should be about a quarter of the height of the tire. If you're rolling on 35s you'll need a chock that extends about 9 inches up the tire. A smaller chock won't work on a steep slope since tires are flexible and if gravity isn't on your side, they can easily run over the ramp. And remember, the heavier your vehicle is, the more likely it is to roll. Be sure your wheel chocks can accommodate the weight of your car.


Wheel chocks should be used on both rear wheels on the side of the tire that faces downward. If the grade is so slight that you can't readily tell which way it's sloping, chock both sides of the wheel. Put your vehicle in park -- or leave it in gear if you've got a manual transmission -- and engage the parking brake. The wheel chocks should be placed in the center of the tire. Give them a good kick to make sure they're snug against the tread.


If you're chocking a trailer for storage, keep the trailer connected to the tow vehicle. Follow the same procedures as above, but be sure to use a trailer wheel chock on both sides of the wheel. Once the trailer is safely chocked, you can detach your tow vehicle.
