Meaning of Wheel Chocks

Wheel chocks are small wedges made of rubber, plastic, or wood, which are designed to stop a vehicle (or isolated tire) from rolling or moving accidentally. Wheel chocks are also called wheel blocks, tire chocks, trailer chocks or wheel stops.

Meaning of Scotch Blocks

Scotch blocks are a specialty type of wheel chock made of steel or steel alloy. Scotch blocks are traditionally used on railways to prevent parked train cars from moving or rolling. Scotch blocks are also sometimes used to store motorcycles or other vehicles that typically rely on a kickstand to remain upright while stationary.

Importance of Wheel Chocks

Wheel chocks are important because a parking brake alone often isn’t enough to keep a vehicle from rolling during a towing job. It’s also important to stabilize tires and vehicles when they’re being transported so they don’t come loose and cause injury.

How to Use Wheel Chocks

Wheel chocks are used in the following situations:

  • Towing
  • Auto-hauling / transporting a car or tires
  • Repairing a vehicle
  • Storing tire or vehicle
  • Keeping airplane stationary while it’s on the airport apron
