Need some help!!

I just got a new bike trailer today and I am trying to get it set up. My wheel chock's holes will be directly over the spaces between boards. Would it be safe to go ahead and drill or do I just have to suck it up and not have the bike in the center of the trailer?

I moved it over for the pics. The holes are now 7/8" from the spaces

Why not bolt a couple 2x4s laterally? And then secure the wheel chalk to that.

How wide is the trailer? If you want it in the middle, go ahead and drill and get a 1/4 piece of metal for the bottom side of the planks to bolt through.

Can I go ahead and ask to borrow the trailer?

What y'all said is the only things I could think of. Just looking to see any options that I may not have known about. The trailer is a 6x10

my wheel chocks on my trailer go through a steel crossmember. If one is not available, I would get a piece of steel as suggested. I certainly wouldnt trust wood screws (not matter how big) to secure the chock to the deck.

just my opinion though.

Get a metal strip or 2x4 and place underneath
