Ultra-Tow Tandem Wheel Chock/Lock - Pair
These wheel locks DO work for locking the wheels for hook up and large movements, but due to the design and the construction of them (lack of tread groves) they do not work as stabilizers. The small rocking back and forth motions when inside the trailer is not prevented like with some of the higher dollar units as the ends of these are smooth with little grip for the tire treads. Even when placed correctly and tightened down to the max the trailer will still rock a little bit when walking inside. ALSO the area for a locking device (padlock) is to WIDE to fit a STANDARD pad lock an extended arm padlock is required to lock these in place to prevent theft.

I purchased these wheel chock/locks to use on my travel trailer when camping. There used to be movement in the trailer when we were parked even when it was level and stabilizers were down. I used these chock/locks for a week of camping and was very impressed with the difference they made. The trailer was very stable with no movement. They were easy to adjust and use.

Great Aid in setting up.
Easy to setup and use. Works as advertized. The chock/lock held the travel trailer in place after leveling etc. I used other wheel chocks, but trailer never moved. Better safe than sorry.
This is a good value for the cost.

Need to be Bigger
Worked great on on side of my RV at not quite full extension (Nut screwed down to near Max), but even with the nut screwed down to where it locks at maximum extension of the contact plates I could slip the chock between the tires on my RV with just a slight resistance. I measured the one side before ordering and found that it was close to the maximum width recommended. I would recommend on planning a 1/2 to 1/4 inch smaller distance to be sure it will work.

Fairly simple to set up the first time with minor adjusting, then that's it from here on out. Locks the same way every time after that.

OK for chock use
My wheels are a bit close and it's hard to put a lock on these: shanks seem either too small or too large; I like using the round padlocks for securing things as they are more secure, but those wouldn't work (based on my observations with standard shank locks) on these chocks.
It seems like one can just rotate the chocks between the wheels and defeat the locking mechanism: I didn't try because I am not wanting to risk breaking anything. If the answer/solution is to make the chocks seat tighter then there's a concern about breaking the handle.
As chocks they're OK. As security devices, which I was interested in, they're questionable.

Performs as advertised
It takes a little work to get the chocks adjusted, but once they're in place they work great. I use them on my 36' travel trailer and they definitely cut down on the rocking motion when people are moving inside the trailer.

These Are Very Easy To Use, Once You Do Your Initial Setup. My Wheels Are Six Inches Apart, Which are At The Max For These.

Good for the price
The clamps are reasonably heavy duty but the rivets that join the pieces together seem to be the weak link. If they wear out they can be replaced with bolts and lock nuts.
For the price they seem to be a good deal, time will tell.
Be aware that they do not open more than 6 inches! Measure your wheel gap before you order.

Great wheel chock
Easy to use once you set them for your application. Instructions are straight forward. Really like the ability to lock them as this serves as a dual purpose chock.
