I purchased and installed a wheel chock from Harbor Freight. It had the typical issues that are mentioned in the reveiws, and I took care of most of them, as well as did some of my own upgrades.

The problem was getting the bike back out of the chock, and the bike's reverse would just barely do it. Not wanting to over stress the reverse, I decided to solve the problem; see the photos.

I can provide more details if people want, but sorry, I will not build any more. The best part is I made it from scrap I had; yea, it could look better....

My additional tie down points are attached to sections of angle I welded to the frame of the trailer. The ones with the chock have a TINY sized bolt that goes into the cross bar that I just don't trust. I bolted the vertical part not only to the horiz part of the chock, but also to the frame of the trailer. I also installed a brace between the frame rails to provide support under the chock, as well as where the rear tire rests. You can see in the photo where the front tire sits on my modified chock. The gizmo is pinned so I can remove it like the movable part of the chock. I can also remove it to load, and with a bike loaded I can stow it in place with the foot pad part on the floor of the trailer.

Excellent idea, I have trouble getting my bike out of the chock I have and it doesnt have a reverse :)

Was it solid bar you used or tubing?

Sorry for not seeing your question sooner!


I used pipe, but I have it trussed with a section of re-bar, otherwise it would not have been strong enough. These were parts of scrap I had.
