Pads and Chocks

Your opinion and possible experiences with : Jack Pads With Handles, Wheel Chock With Rope. Do the handles on the pads stay upright to get ahold of, or do they lie on the ground, thus i'm still stooping to the ground? Same with rope on chocks, but is the rope long enough to stop me from reaching? do you believe they are worth the purchase or make things easier?

Use your awning rod as a 'snatching tool'.

Makes it easier to grab those rope handles

My pads and chocks have a short length of rope on them. I use the long awning extension tool that has a hook on the end to grab them and drag them back to their storage compartment.

I have four 4x6x12" blocks with thin rope staple to the 4" side. I don't have a problem reaching down to pick them up. What I like about the rope is I can grab 2, 3, 4 at a time and make the rounds when setting up or taking down. I use a cordless to set the jacks so bending down is just part of the game.

I added these 1/4" ropes to my Andersen levelers for easy extraction.
