These are hard rock maple with what looks like hand forged bails that swivel freely. With a rope tied to the bail you could release one of these from the drivers seat.
Thanks, Jay. The only way I would improve on those would be to arc the surface to match the tire diameter.
It's a fool's errand to carry a jack in a T without chocks.
Not to mention stalling on a hill, and having brakes that won't hold.
Jay ; A friend of me made a wheel chock the DUTCH way
Does your friend carry tube patching materials inside his wheel chock ?
In response to someone using a distributor as a chock block once my friend has used a coil box for a chock. He is a very brave man indeed.
Anthony, nice discs!
RD has a good chock I like:
Dang, I was searching for that old photo and didn't notice that RD beat me to it!
Sorry about that "double post"
They were probably made by the same company that made my antique furniture clamps. I have a few of the chocks that have fallen off old clamps, now I know what to use them for. lol
Perhaps they really are parts of wooden bar clamps and not wheel chocks.
Bill, Looks like the set I have started out as part of a furniture clamp just like the one you pictured above. Thanks for your post!
Ralph, Does your wheel chock have a name? :-)
Toon, that sure is a fitting wheel chock for The Netherlands!
The roadkill chock belonged to the younger Mr. King, who belongs to the SoCalif T Club.
Fellows, we have an avowed conservationist in South Australia who was renowned for his hatred of feral cats and their impact on the native wildlife. He wore a catskin cap to rouse opinion and sold bumper stickers which said, " The only good cat is a flat cat!" My wheel chock is a black toy cat,once I get it stuffed with sand.
