Paylode’s reusable wheel chocks, designed for intermodal automobile shipments, can be pried up and reused, unlike one-and-done wood blocking. They are also said to take one-third of the time to place opposed to a standard chock. This is because several pieces of wood must first be cut to form a horseshoe shape, then nailed three blocks high around the tire, all of which takes considerable time. This chock is one lightweight piece, nailed down once, and used many times. It can withstand up to 4,000 lbs. per load without crushing and has an estimated life of between 12 and 15 turns. In a recent test, more than 5,200 lbs. of pulling force was required to dislodge the chock from a 1.50ʺ hard wood floor.
The chocks are also nestable—stacked one inside another for easy storage and return on trucks.
