Boat trailers are used to transport maritime vessels to and from the water. These trailers can be used to haul a variety of watercraft, including boats of various sizes and jet skis. Boating is a popular recreational activity and boat trailers are widely used across the country. Without the proper safety equipment, transporting a boat or water vessel can be dangerous; an unsecured boating trailer could lead to injuries or accidents during the transportation process.
A wheel chock is designed to secure at-rest boating trailers and prevent unintentional movement. Wheel chocks can be easily installed by placing them behind the wheels of a boat trailer. When a trailer is unhitched, wheel chocks can ensure that your trailer or watercraft remains stationary—protecting other vehicles and pedestrians.
