No OC magic "thingie" you thought of on the bottom or anything? Come on OC, you are like MacGyver I thought you would have had something special to keep it from sliding on any surface. Okay, cool. Thanks, maybe because it is heavier, although the Trailer Aid is pretty hefty also.

Coefficient of friction between wood and plastic is not magic.

Had 2 flats on a triple axle cargo trailer, same side, and used a 12ton bottle jack and 19.8V cordless craftsman impact wrench. What a life saver. Changed flats in 10 minutes. Hardest part was getting spares out of storage.

If you have a dual axle, just get the Trailer Aid. Works like a charm.

And...thank you Mr. Science! Just thought with all your ingenuity you probably had something special on the bottom of the wood ramps. I have thought and been wrong before...oh boy!

I wasn't trying to be snarky, I just haven't seen the need to add anything.
