Now for some actual, useful information about the wheel chocks. I bought these to stabilize my cars when jacking them to service brakes, tires, etc. My garage floor is painted with epoxy paint. Even with the anti-slip additive in the paint, several other wheel chocks I have tried always slipped and moved on the epoxy floor. These Blitz Tire Hugger Wheel Chocks have held firm on the floor every time. As with any wheel chock, it's important to make sure it's firmly wedged between the tire and the floor. A quick firm kick to wedge the chock in place is all I ever need on my slippery garage floor.
I don't think these would be useful outdoors on an unpaved surface, such as with an RV or trailer in the woods. But then, it dozen't seem that's how they are being marketed anyway, and I haven't tried them in this application. For working on a car with a jack or ramps, these chocks do the job.
EDIT: Changed my oil last week and used them to chock my small sized, econobox sedan while it was up on ramps. I forgot to remove them when I was done and tried to back the car off the ramp anyways, and they provided no resistance at all. I didn't even notice until after the car was off the ramps.
I'm not so forgetful that I need a full blown checklist when I change my oil. I've never forgotten to replace the drain plug, or put in oil, etc. However, black tire chocks can sometimes do a good job of... uh... hiding themselves.
Seeing the bright orange chocks serves as a reminder that you're not totally done yet.
As far as durability goes, I have to agree with other reviewers here. If you're like me, and go all out to ensure you're doing things "the right way", they're fine. Would I trust them behind a small to medium sized car with a working parking brake? Sure. Would I trust them to keep a full size pickup with a bad emergency brake on ramps? Never.
Mine are safety orange.
placed behind the rear 16" tires of My car they prevent it from rolling anywhere while I have the frontend jacked up.
I have forgotten to remove them more than once and they prevented the car from moving while in reverse.
They are hollow but quite sturdy and strong regardless of what some "reviewers" have stated. They have frequently held the car where it is supposed to be and I've had to move the car forward when done to un-chock the car.
For a normal automobile, these work great!
(update:10/05) Used these again for the last 2 weekends doing ATF changes on the cars. Still work great Preventing Mazdas from rolling backwards while up on jack stands. I noticed some others have commented about the color black vs orange...shouldn't matter... these are not road markers people. These work fine for what they are intended for. A little extra protection. Don't expect it to hold a car without brakes on a hill or anything stupid like that.
Finally just put it in reverse and gave it gently more and more gas (to the extent I was afraid I would kick out one of the ramps Front wheel drive) finally the car went down (nearly slammed) while picking everything up I noticed loose dirt (we have a lot of orange clay in our soul) and I was puzzeled and when I looked closer I seen both the chocks sitting underneath the car. Was a little disappointed figured I broke crushed them.
To my surprise both too no damage and I do mean to my surprise. Not as much as a little crack.
When I bought them at the store I was thinking they don't look remotely as thick as the ramps.
Anways I was very impressed how they handled not only did the car not want to go back they didn't take any damage I had to give it some serious gas before the car finally drove over them.
I don't know if it will mean much to you but I was really impressed enough to come and write a review at 4am while I was thinking about it.
