How much are those wheel chocks?
I like the idea of a padlock.
I was considering getting the "boot" like the parking police put on, but this serves 2 purposes and is smaller to haul around and easier to put on.
and it's aluminum...

I use them all the time. Level site or not, they just add great stability and peace of mind when raising the front jack.
Guess it is just a personal choice, couple of 4 x 4's, cut to length, will also work.
I have one of these as well. I bought it commercially, but it has been 20 years ago (which speaks for its durability) and I have no idea where. It has no brand stamped on it.

I have X chocks. I'm sure your homemade ones are quicker to get locked into place.

X Marks the Spot

I use a combination; a wedge chock when I'm unhitching and X chocks once I'm leveled. Also, when retracted, they require very little storage space.
Now, if only I had enough room to use a cordless drill to expand and retract them. (Maybe I need to add a right angle chuck to the toolbox?).
