Who uses tandem wheel chocks?

Similar to these?



I know nothing. I'm looking for brand name, features, price points, more . . .

Thanks!

If I'm posting on the wrong forum, whip me with a wet antenna:-)

Ditto....we use them as well -- totally worth it (just be sure that your significant other remembers to take BOTH off when you hitch up and leave)!

Chocks

I had a metal set a long time ago.to heavy and bulky.The rotos are made of aluminum and a hard plastic.It is very light and easy to use with the removable handle.No worrying about finding tools to put them on.

I use something similar on our 28' International; essential on our sloping driveway. I put them on whilst still hitched, then release and refit once I'm unhitched and level.

It says on the box to use them only in conjunction with other chocking systems, but my backup chocks simply don't get to see any action at all.

Lucy uses the single plate Bal Chocks. We usually use just one unless the site is really unlevel.

I useuse a pair of them, and I admit tire chocks as well. Use the tire chocks to get the AS set, then the X-Chocks to keepit steady.

We have the exact set that you have pictured, Splitrock. Very easy to use, lightweight and lockable for added theft protection. We use it every time we park, but is especially useful for the blocked up (levelers) side of your rig. Would absolutely purchase again.

Rotochoks look like this?

Rotochok Installation Instructions

Does the installer crank a handle?

I hadn't heard of them. Thanks!

These look like the big brother to the x-chocks.

They look nice,

Thanks!

Yes

Yes.You get a 10'' bar with a handle on it(I believe it is that long.Maybe longer).I use it no matter what.As long as it is parked I have them on.It only take a few turns and you pop the lock in place and thats it.
In the picture,The bar is in the bottom chock.there is a hole there so you can use it to twist the bottom chock out from between the tires.Once you do that it pretty much comes out with you hands easily.
