Did you try to put in flat on the ground between the tires?
You are supposed wedge it under one tire but have the other end angled up resting a little on the other tire. When you drive up on it....it drops down between them just fine. If your tires are close to 2" apart...then you might have to cut off a little on the tip.

So, I went to the lake for a few days and was able to use mine, they worked fine. I did have to angle mine up between the tires. When I backed off of them I did have to get it just right to pull it out.

Here is a couple of pic's.





And a couple other pic's while there.







The decal on the back of my trailer

I will definitely take them, I'm leaving out of town tonight and will be back Sunday night late, but we could meet up somewhere early next week, if that works for you. I will PM you my number.

They do work...I bought, well it was an Andersen Rapid Jack..looks to be the same thing only bigger...from etrailer. It's got an 8" lift on it. with a big bubble level where you can see it from inside the truck, all you have to do is stick it behind the low side and back up until it's level. Chock everything and done. I think I'm done with blocks.

From the pictures, it looks like they are barely wide enough for the tires?
I sure wouldn't want my tires hanging over the edge of these things for any length of time.
Why wouldn't they make them wider?

I used mine to help a fellow RVer change a flat today. I had him back up on it rolling onto a little taller block. No jacks involved. He stated, " I am going to have to get a couple of them". Sorry, no pic's

So Procedurally, you get to the site

get out of truck

put the 2 blocks in place.

get back in truck

back up till level ( or a little more to allow the wheel to equalize between the chock and the stop)

get back in truck and roll forward till stable

get out of truck

put in X-chocks or rotochoks or whatever.

unhook rig

TO REVERSE.

Get into truck

Hook up rig

back up a bit

get out of truck

pull front chocks

get back in truck

pull forward just enough to pull chocks

get out of truck

pull chocks

collapse.

To many steps.

I stick with the yellow jobs.
