Northern Tool Ultra Tow Motorcycle Wheel Chock

http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...9163_200409163



Anybody use this wheel chock? I'm thinking about one for my new to me trailer. I would be hauling my FZ6 and KLX250s with it.

At Harbor Freight for $29.95 USD. Same ready to rust through POS direct from China.

If you get one, paint it right away if it is going to be on an outside trailer.

I've seen 'em both, and they are inexpensive but not POS's. Sounds more like an anit-Chinese comment than fact based to me. FWIW.

I have 2 that are the same design, I think they might be pit bull brand or something.
They work well and make life easier.

Get the more expensive one at HF. I have used both and highly recomend this one.

If you want some of those I will sell you a couple for $20 each. You will needs to paint them though.

I changed to this one:

Got on sale for under $40 though.

I have one and it works pretty well.

HF has 20% coupons in most Motorcycle or 4x4 magazines so look for one of those.

I got mine from HF several years ago, and use it on my lift.

It works great!







As you can see it works with a variety of bikes. With most it will hold the bike upright long enough to strap it down.
