Wheel Chock 101:

Wheel chocks are used to keep a vehicle from rolling when the opposite end is lifted or when a larger vehicle (or plane) is parked to protect against property damage and injury. Off road chocks are also used in construction so workers can park vehicles on non-paved terrain that may be uneven.

Choosing a Wheel Chock

There are several factors to take into consideration when choosing the appropriate wheel chock to use:
  • Type
  • Details
  • Tire Size
  • Usually you will choose a wheel chock at least 1/4 the height of the tire
  • Weight of the Vehicle
  • Heavier vehicles will need heavier duty chocks and possibly use more than one.
  • Grade of the terrain
  • Steeper grade will require either heavier duty chocks, more chocks or both.
  • Tire Pressure
  • Tires with higher air pressure may decrease rolling resistance.
  • Type of tire
  • Radial tires vs bias ply tires, radial tires can reduce the chock's effectiveness
  • Condition of the Ground
  • If it is firm, wet, frozen etc. Frozen or wet ground for example may require more chocks, heavier weight bearing chocks or chocks with different grip.

How to Safely Use Wheel Chocks for Vehicle Lifting:

  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface.
  2. Set the parking break
  3. Determine which way the vehicle would roll when you lift the end.
  4. Place the chock securely between the ground and the back end of the wheel (furthest away from the side you are lifting).
  5. Kick/push the chock toward the wheel to make sure the fit is secure.
  6. Do the same on the opposite side of the same wheel and make sure it is secure.
  7. It is best to secure both wheels with chocks to ensure maximum safety.
