X-chock

Anyone use x-chocks? Was thinking about it but was not sure if they stress the axel.

Use them all the time. No problems with the axle, and they compress the tire a small amount.

Mine are in place and in the job right now. They work great at preventing forward-aft movement of the trailer.

X-chock

I have some chocks that work in a similar manner, wedges tightly between the tyres. Tightened with a hand screw to clamp them. Will skid if i forget to remove them.

It is not going to break anything if tightened properly. Heck, the axles take travel, bump, and weight loads you can’t possibly apply with just chocks.

Gave all my regular "chocks" away!

Best thing is that you can level the trailer with blocks and still have both sides chocked properly.

Put a Red ribbon on them. . . . Don't ask!

I use these also. Although made by BAL, they are not X-chocks. In my thinking they have fewer moving parts, therefore a better design.
Being lazy, I found a right angle DeWalt drill on e-bay, and use it (with a 3/4" fitting, same as stabilizers) to expand and contract.

If I had a complaint, they're heavy, but they sure lock those tires down!
Especially if your tires are on blocks, where standard chocks are ineffective!

I use them but lost confidence in them. I forgot to remove them when leaving home last year. Truck at idle, pulled forward enough to close gate and found bent chocks laying on pavement where trailer had been parked. It is a Duramax, but at idle?
