Halt caster-chock slippage with an old inner tube

If you discover that the chocks you built to secure the wheels on your mobile tools are creeping around, here's a way to stop them dead in their tracks. Take two 2" sections of an old inner tube and stretch them over the extension arms on the chocks. The rubber gives the chock enough grip to stop it from slipping--even on smooth floors.

Cool, I started one today! I have a real bad back so I am going to take a piece of 1/2 inch all thread, drill through the cross piece, attach it with a couple nuts and flat washers, cover it with a piece of 1/2 inch tubing and put an old "Hurst" T-shift handle on top so I don't have to do so much bending.......I may make one a little larger to use on my trailer wheels......THANKS!
