Deluxe tire spreader/lock
on May 12, 2013
I am on my 4th Trailer/RV. I have used different devices to keep my trailers from moving over the years. With tandem wheels the best way seems to put a spreader style lock between the tires. I have had a pair of this style for quite a while. They were the style that you adjusted them, then placed them between the tires and pulled a lever up while trying to keep the bottom from coming up, I did this with an old wrench holding the bottom down. With two bad shoulders this was getting to be a dreadful experience. Finally they were just too rusted and I just couldn't keep them adjusted.
I have had my eye on this style for a while but thought they were expensive. Well I finally took the leap and I am happy I did. They are easy to put between the tires and crank them tight. My trailer is more stable now than ever before. I did buy two of them and a wrench came with each so I have a spare. The box wrench has two different sizes, one on each end. It is also a ratcheting wrench. So I marked the end that fits the device and also marked the wrench for which side to be up to put them on and which side to be up to take them off. This set up is so much easier! Suppose you could buy the cheaper set but I like the way these press and fit on the tires.
Wish I would of bought these sooner.
Update: We have used these on several trips now. Our trailer is SOOOO much more stable now. Very easy to put on and with these cranked tight and with my stabilizer pads down we are rock solid.
