Re: e-track mounted chocks

There is an inline one available for the Pit Bull too. I had some custom made, and he still sells them I think. The HondaGals can point you to the guy. I don't have his info handy.

Figment had a couple wheel chocks for sale

EDIT: Just noticed you weren't a fan of the Pit Bull. Maybe it's time for bed...

I love pit bull, just lazy and like the preset ones However I might give the guys recommended by HondaGalToo a phone call link to see if they can still do inline ones. Any reason that Pingels suck, in particular?

Re: e-track mounted chocks

The Pingels I've had were tall, and would come into contact with your brake rotors easily.

Re: e-track mounted chocks

Yup, what Conq said. Pingel, and most other chocks, will hit your rotors. PitBull will not. Go with them! Accept no substitutes! Go to that link I gave you and call Performance Trailers...ask for Glen.

Conq, how did those brackets work that he made for you? Didn't one break?

At any rate, ask him if he's still got them or has improved on his design. If not, just add the horizontal piece of etrack and you're good to go!

Re: e-track mounted chocks

Yeah, one developed a crack over time. But I think he reinforced them on the later models.

Good deal, you'll be pleased. They work well. I've seen other removable "pop chocks" unpop themselves at inopportune times.
If you don't hear back from them, keep bugging them. They're good guys but sometimes you need to prod them a bit. But, you've got plenty of time till June!

Ah, I had a feeling he might have purchased them from you. So he purchased the brackets, and the trailer came with them!
