Harbor Freight Wheel Chock

So I recently inherited a sweet 06 E250 with 53k miles from my father in law who passed
in October. So I plan to mount two staggered TRS systems inside and was considering the HF wheel chocks for the fronts. I thought there were posts but couldnít seem to find ones that talk about the chock so I wanted to see who
,If anyone, uses one.

Also if anyone has mounted TRS into an e250 your input would be appreciated.

Zero need for a wheel chock for the front if you're using the TRS, and to use that setup would render it bike specific for the situation, as the wheelbases between bikes could vary enough that the wheel chock may be too short or far away while secured in with the TRS.

To make more space in the front of the van, sometimes I would mount the TRS underneath the bike. This would put the rear wheel very close to the back door. I didnít do it very often as it is a pain to install it like that. But extra space becomes hard to find when you have 2 bikes.

Harbor Freight Wheel Chock

My original plan was to mount one chock up against the drivers seat so the front doesnít move (I have a TRS in my trailer already and the front moves without the chock which is why I want one). And then mount the other TRS near the back door for the second bike.
Definitely considering not using a second chock for the second bike and just stacking my gear bag against it so it doesnít move.
Itís the longer 250 so Iím hoping it will work.

If your concerned about the front moving around, why not use a ratchet strap to tie the front down? Like Otto said, the TRS is not designed to need a wheel chock and unless you use a ratchet strap with the wheel chock, I donít see how that would help at all. Iíve had the exact same setup before. Turning the handlebars to full lock will help keep it from moving around.

I have one that I bolt to my trailer when hauling the bike. It works okay and is pretty well built for the price. It is quite large though and will take up some space. You would probably be better off with a smaller chock in a van.

Harbor Freight Wheel Chock

This was my old setup. Yes, I understand its a little unorthodox to mount the bike on the wall. But hey, its not stupid if it works.

Yea, with the TRS you shouldn't need a wheel chock at all (maybe a ratchet strap for the front as mentioned above).

For our trailer hauling setup (we didn't have TRS at the time), we used a different HF wheel chock with great results: https://www.harborfreight.com/motorc...ock-69026.html

I mounted a baxley chock in a position to steady the front while the bike was locked into TRS. Waste of time and money, not to mention a couple of holes in my trailer that don't need to be there.
