What type of vehicle/trailer are you mounting it to and which kind of motorcycle wheel chock are you using?

I use Harbor Freight wheel chocks. I put threaded inserts in the floor so I could bolt in the chocks and also remove them when I want to. I normally carry 3 bikes - a Kawasaki Versys, a KLX 400, and a TW200.





I used a threaded insert that would fit flush to the top of the floor, but did not go through the 1" plywood used for the floor in the garage of my toyhauler. I carefully drilled a pilot hole and then screwed in the insert.

Shop The Hillman Group 4-Count 1/4-in Zinc Alloy Standard (SAE) Wood Insert Lock Nuts at Lowes.com



The bolts that hold the chocks down aren't really stressed except when you load and unload the bike. The straps hold the bike in place during travel.

FWIW, my ramp door is slippery as goose poop when wet. Be very careful when loading or unloading bikes in wet conditions (get help).

I don't ride my bikes in. I am too old, my legs are too short, and I'm scared. I stand beside my bike, engine running, bike in gear, and use the engine power to get up the ramp. To unload, I again stand beside the bike, bike not running, engine in gear, and use the clutch and front brake for resistance while I back the bike down the ramp.

Condor. The best. Drilled two holes in the floor to install the mount, which the Condor attaches to with a single screw bolt. Holds my Harley very well.

I use pingel removable chocks. I have mounts set to haul 2,3, or 4 bikes. This pic was with 3 bikes in back.
I agree on the ramp door being slick when wet, even with the rubber flooring

The bolt on is cool looking, was try to come up with something to mount my chock to, similar thoughts on using existing tie downs. I like it.

No problem, we're always looking for a better mouse trap.

Here are some photos of what I did to duplicate the Bolt-It-On system. The added feature of self locking chocks is what I was after but is not available on the Bolt-It-On system.

The tubing is 2" square with an 1/8" thick wall. Purchased on ebay for $56 shipping included right to my door. I purchased the 1/2" diameter J hooks as well as the shouldering I bolts at Lowe's home store for $45. The wheel chocks came from Harbor Freight.

I drilled holes for the J bolts that are centered on the tie down positions in my Fuzion. I then drilled holes to locate one chock centered on the tube for single bike hauling. I also drilled holes to position both chocks with equal position too haul two bikes. The eye bolts are located 33" on center of the corresponding chock position. The eye bolts have a 2200 pound safe working limit.

When setting up at camp the chock/s are removed and placed in the back of my truck and the square tube is placed on the top bed in the garage. Of course the chocks can also be used in the garage or driveway for service or washing when the included cross member is reattached. All in all I have less than $200 invested here. Say what you will about the cheap Harbor Freight chocks.....These are rock solid construction. The only benefit with the Condor is the aluminum construction which decreases weight. The system I have put together comes in less than 100 lbs. Believe me when I say....."My bikes are mounted rock solid giving me piece of mind.....and that.....my friend.....is priceless! ".

I just ordered a free standing chock too. As someone pointed out, it's held in place by the bike. But I will probably hook it to the tie downs just to be sure

Baxleys are the shizzle. I used one to haul my Busa all over the place. Very easy to ride into the chock, get off the bike and walk away.
