I carry a short piece of 4x4 with me for a scotch block. Anybody on here attach chain to their scotch block for reeling it in? My handicap makes it a little harder for me to get in and out so I'm thinking about some chain. Maybe plastic chain. I'm pretty sure that I've seen plastic at Tractor Supply.

Could try one of those retractable dog leash things. Small and strong.

Your T maybe won't roll, but it might walk on you some :-)

Tommy,

A thin rope / thick string will work also -- but the retractable dog leash stows a lot neater. You may need to back up just a little to make it easy to pull up.

Also switching to the multi-grade oil and having a good parking brake should also work. But I have seen the parking brake not hold as well as I thought it should (oil leak etc.). While the chock has always worked (except when I forgot and left it in the tool box).

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Don't use a chain or a something with a lot of tensile strength. IMO you want light cord or rope that will snap easily if the chock gets stuck somewhere you don't want it to. Just my 2C worth.
