Anyone have experience with the HF freestanding wheel chock?

No, but my inclination would be to build one from a few 2 x 4's with a diagonal brace back to envelope more of the front wheel.

I have seen a few of them and I would say from looking that it would work OK. Be a bit wary of the powder coating it will probably peel in a couple of years but nothing a rattle can of black jam wouldn't fix.

Thanks guys. I've been debating to try to build one with my buddy who does all the welding, but they're running a special right now at HF for $69.95 which is a great price if it would do the job and hold up for even just a few seasons.

Went ahead and picked up the HF model so I'll report back on how it works out... Well and of course I think I "need" one of these now too...
