Do I need a motorcycle wheel chock?

Can you trailer a motorcycle without a chock?

Registered. You don’t need a chock as long as you have something to stop the front wheel from moving forward, like the front of the trailer.

What can I use instead of wheel chocks?

How many wheels should you choke?

OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.178 requires vehicle operators to set their truck and trailer brakes and block their wheels to prevent vehicle movement. The standard notes that chocks should be placed under the rear wheels, which means two chocks should be used – chocking just one wheel isn’t enough.

How does a motorcycle chock work?

How does a motorcycle wheel chock work? A motorcycle wheel chock works by securely holding the front wheel of a motorcycle in order to store or transport the machine upright.
