Wheel chocks?

I'm looking fir some wheel chocks for my Lacrosse. I'm curious as to how well the "x" type chocks work compared to the traditional ones. Does anybody use these with their Lacrosse?

I'm more into, "which chocks are the easiest to use?"

Best Regards,

Hob

I use the x type chocks on my TT. To me it seems to help keep the TT moving back and forth. easy to install use the wrench that comes with it and all done. But lets face it nothing easier then trowing a chock under a tire.

I use the X-chocks with my LaCrosse. You have to buy the extended version to work with the E-Z Tow axles. They are expensive compared to the regular ones. I found mine on ebay for something like $152 for a pair including shipping.
I don't think anything short of putting your tt on blocks will completely take out all movement, but they do make a difference.
You will still need some type of wheel blocks to hold the tt while hitching/unhitching the tt. The X-Chocks are applied after you have leveled the tt and removed before you hitch up.

I agree that ckocks are the easiest. I'm just curious as to which works better. Will the x-chocks work on a slope?

I use good old fashioned wheel chocks and a rubber mallet

I purchased a pair of X-chocks thinking that they would prevent the trailer from moving back and forth but I don't feel any difference. Now, I just use the old fashioned kind. Those are the easiest to use IMHO.

We use the x-chalks as well and they work well for us in keeping down the front to back movement, and I use a wheelchair inside the trailer. We still use wheel chalks to keep the trailer from crusing down the slope as the x-chalks are not really designed for that purpose, as per their instructions.
