Wheel chocks

So looking for a wheel chock that's under 40 bucks. I've been looking at the harbor freight ones. Does anyone have any experience with this one? Or what would you recommendations for a wheel chock under $40.00? Thanks in advance!

You talking about the baxley? They are way out of my price range. Unless your talking about something else?

When I bought my trailer it actually came with one. I never used it because I am not too sure I trust it.

Picked up the black HF ones! Definitely a lot more stable, heavy duty, and a better finish!

Would ya recommend removing the horizontal bar in the front? I only have a 4x8 trailer and two won't fit unless that is removed.
