Chocks - ?Rotochok

After reading about the run-away 5er after unhitching, I am wondering about the best method for securing a 5er or TT. Rotochoks appear to lock the two wheels against each other. Do they work; is it the best solution; are there better/different chocks?

I see also ulines are available. How do they compare?

I love my RotoChocks and it's the only thing I use for the wheels.

Bal X Chocks do the same, they lock both tires and should be used in pairs. Main thing is to tighten all of them. IF, tightened, it is next to impossible if not impossible to dislodge them.

I have used many types of chocks over the years and now have roto-chocks. I forgot they were in use last season and tried to pull away...couldn't do it.
