Weight

The weight of the vehicle being chocked will need to be the gross weight, that would include any load and fuel, etc.

How To Measure Tyre Size For Wheel Chock

Tyre Size

Tyre size needs to be measured as the diameter (from one side of the wheel to the other). This will ensure the wheel chock fits the radius of the tyre and is not too small.

Gradient

The incline you are chocking the vehicle on will have an effect on how many chocks you need; level surfaces need the wheels chocking either side. Where as inclines generally only need one side to be chocked.

Surface

The surface is less of an issue in the UK, but for countries where the ground is frozen for long periods, ice studs may be required for the chocks. Gravel and other loose materials will also affect the chock required.

Proper Chocking of tyres

All wheel chocks should be placed in the centre of the tyre tread, not to the edges. By placing wheel chocks at the centre of the tyre, it is far harder for the vehicle to push the chock aside.

Any external forces applied to the vehicle should be taken into consideration. You may be loading the vehicle on an uphill gradient with chocks behind the wheels, but what if a forklift is likely to push the vehicle uphill. You will need chocks to counteract that force ensuring the vehicle does not move away from the loader.

Using Wheel Chocks on Gradients

When chocking a vehicle, it is imperative that the gradient is taken into consideration. The gradient will have an effect on how many chocks are required to chock the vehicle safely.

Wheel Chocks Being Used On a Car Facing Downhill

Facing Downhill

In this instance, you will need to place the chocks in front of the front tyres on the downhill side.

Wheel Chocks on a vehicle facing uphill

Facing Uphill

When the vehicle is facing uphill, you will need to put the wheel chocks on the downhill side again, behind the rear tyres.

Chocking a vehicle on a level surface

On a level surface

Wheel chocks should be placed either side of wheels when you are on the level or if you are unsure of the gradient. This will prevent the vehicle from moving in either direction.
