Leveling Wedges

I am a wedge guy; I have had these aluminum leveling wedges for 8yrs my dad had them 20 years before me and they were given to him from my Great Uncle(I have no idea how long he used them). So these levelers could be 40-50yrs old and still look like new.
I like that there is no guessing on how high I have to go. I put them in place, go up until Iím level, put the locking chock in behind and done. Theyíre very light weight and store easy.

Lynx Levelers .. Once you have them you will wonder why you bothered carrying wood with you.

They run promotions and give away stuff on FB :

It looks like there is a brand name or serial etched on the bottom.

any chance we could find out what it says?

*edit - does it say "level-it" by any chance?

I did some surfing, and found these:

Andersen Rapid Camper Leveler and Wheel Chock Andersen Trailer Jack,Wheel Chocks AM3011

Just ordered two. Might get to retire the 10X2X4' boards.

I hope you enjoy them. As soon as I looked at them the thought "Unstable" came to my mind ... Wouldn't that thing just pivot to the other side if you moved the trailer enough ? I am not talking bad about the product, it is just that it looks unstable by design. Does anyone use this and any feedback ?

Looks cool, but I would worry about stability on a soft site. Probably fine on a very firm surface.
Also, for dual axles, not good to have one wheel off the ground for a long time?Added stress on the weight bearing axle?

You are absolutely correct.

I bought two (as stated in my post). You can never have too many chocks. LOL
