Video Transcript for Rackem Manufacturing Removable Wheel Chock Review

What's going on everybody Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Rack'Em Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock. If you're like me, and you got a two wheel motorized vehicle, and you have a tire with less than six and a half inches, that's what you need to be able to use this wheel chock. Wheel chocks are really nice just because, this one's removable, which is awesome, but also just the wheel chock being what it is. It really helps getting everything locked down.As you can see, I have mine strapped to the left and the right side of my handlebars. As I started tightening one, the wheels are trying to turn the whole entire time.

This way, it's going to keep it nice and combined in there. And now that I'm pulling forward too, it's pushing up against this front part, which is extremely, extremely solid. It doesn't matter what kind of roads you bring this thing back on, it's not going to tip over.To sum it all up, I've been using a lot of different wheel chocks today. And one thing that is unique to this one is just the powder-coated finish. All of them are kind of the same.

If they're removable, they're removable, great. Some are going to be able to fit up to like a seven inch tire, but that's not too much of a difference for me not to like this one just as much as all the other ones. The installation process wasn't too hard, so let's go over that with you now.First thing we want to do is just getting an idea of where you want your bike to be. For me, I want to be able to walk through the door you're standing in. And of course, I want to be able to access my little hatch here, got a spare tire and some tools in there.

This way, my back's going to be here and I have all this room to get all my stuff ready for the trip. What I'm going to do is just place it down, take a little Sharpie or something, and mark these eight holes. And that's where we're going to do our drilling.You are going to have to supply your own hardware, pick your drill bits accordingly. Now what we want to do is take these little holes right here, and we want to make sure that the skinny part is going to be facing towards the bend. I want to get my bike in like this.

The skinny part is facing that way by the bend right here. Just keep that straight, we don't want to put it on backwards.Do that, grab your hardware, and a friend if you got one, and I do. He's going to go underneath and tighten all these up for me while I hold it up top. Now, we can go ahead and take our chock and fit these two little studs right here in that first slot, and slide it forward. And then we have some hardware that came with the kit, which is awesome. It's this little wing nut guy. What we want to do is put that into the slot, and that's going to thread in the threaded portion of that bottom bracket that we just secured down, and that's all we got do. And we are in business.Before I get the bike and load it up, I just wanted you to get a good look at the nice finish to it. It is going to be an extreme ware hammered powder-coated finish and it's going to be extra, extra strong. So if you have an enclosed trailer, definitely not going to rust away. And if it's on the outside of a trailer, you really don't have to worry about it. It looks really, really cool, and it's going to be extra tough against mother nature. And that's going to do it for our look at the Rack'Em Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock. And I'm Adam at etrailer.

Rack'Em Manufacturing Removable Wheel Chock - RA-17

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (36 Customer Reviews)

Wheel chock helps to stabilize your motorcycle, dirt bike, or other small vehicle for transport. It can quickly be removed from its base for versatility and will accept wheels up to 6-1/2" wide.


Easy enough to install and heavy/durable. Ran into minor issue when the bolt hole on the chock did not line up exactly with the hole on the plate so I had to forced the wing nut to screw in on one side. I'm leaving in 4 days and need it this so no time to exchange. Not sure what will happen when I go to remove it and/or re-attach the chock (stripped threads maybe...). Other than that it's good. Seems a little pricey for what it is though.

The instructions read "1\4" long bolts" but really it's 1\4" diameter bolts at whatever length needed for your application. Easy enough to figure out that 1\4" long doesn't make any sense but since it's worded odd in the instructions I'm pointing it out. I just took the plate to the hardware store to make sure I got all the right size bolts, washers, and lock/stop nuts.


I use this to trailer my KTM 350 dirt bike and it does a good job. I was concerned that the chock was going to be too wide for my dirt bike tire, but it holds it securely and it is not too wide of a chock. The pic of the tire in the chock is size 110/100-18 for reference. The chock is quality made and does not feel flimsy or cheap in any way. The painted coating is a thick type of texture that is tough and would be hard to scratch up. Mounting the base to my wooden trailer floor was very easy and the chock is solid when attached to the base. I have trailered my bike on short and long hauls (300 miles) and the chock mount wing nuts have never loosened. The chock works well and I ended up buying another one. As you can tell from the pictures the chock still looks brand new and it has been used many times.


I never got to use it, I did put the bike on the trailer and it seems to have worked well.


Wheel chock & base mounts very easily and looks great. Very convenient to be able to remove wheel chock frame from the base. Would be nice to have an option for a narrower wheel chock for dirt bike width tires that could mount on same base.


It's the perfect solution to keep my cargo trailer floor un-cluttered. One minor suggestion would be to attach the lock washer to the mounting screw. I remove the chocks when not in use and the hardware can easily be lost. Other than that, I love 'em.


Product is advised. Works well with 400 lb motorcycle inside cargo trailer. Nice removable feature if not being used.


Going to be used for transporting a Spyder in an enclosed trailer. Fit the front wheels snugly.


Sturdy, well packaged. etrailer we great in communicating our package would be a bit delayed and asked if we would like to substitute the delayed item. We chose to wait and the package arrived within a couple days.


I bought two of these to go on an open 4 x 8 trailer. They were very easy to install and being removable, still leave the trailer available for other uses. The quality is superb... very pleased.


Product arrive as scheduled. I mounted the wheel chock in my trailer and it looks good. Tried resting my bike in it and it is going to work well. My bike has a low profile tire and dual brake rotors. This chock is going to work just fine.


Quick delivery, great customer follow up. Outstanding product backed up by a great company.


Thank you for getting the parts here fast delivery the parts look great the paint job on the items excellent there nice and sturdy and I can't wait to put it in my trailer

They hold my bikes very well when I go to the shows
Dan D - 12/05/2018


We've ordered more than once from etrailer and every product has lived up to its description; this one was no exception. Excellent quality, sturdy, and exactly what we needed for stabilizing a motorcycle for cross-country travel.


These are really nice. I have not installed them yet, but a good product and will work well for my needs.


Perfect. Great quality. Using it inside of my enclosed trailer. No bolts/screws included.


The order arrived in a very timely manner product was packaged really good also, would recommend to others.


Work great. I have 4 of them in my cargo trailer. Can easily remove them by hand to move bikes around.


Product as advertised. Timely delivery. Sales person very helpful and pleasant. Will use ETRAILER in the future.


Totally useless, per the photos and video I thought the mounting hardware was included. All I received is the chock which I will be returning for a refund. Very dissatisfied.


Just got them today. Being installed next week but chocks look solid and will definitely do the job. I will be ordering 2 more once these are installed.


Exactly as advertised. No complaints. Great information while the items shipped and great follow up. Products were great.


Everything I ordered worked awesome. Great quality for a great price. My trailer is turning out nice.


I have another RA-17 and it’s great. I ordered my second one on a Tuesday afternoon with 3 days shipping, it arrived late the next late morning.

That’s service.


Thanks for the fast delivery and great products


Items arrived in a timely manner, in good condition and quality was as expected

  • Could MaxxTow Chock part # MT70075 Work with Vespa Scooter
    Depends on the front wheel setup of your Vespa but the MaxxTow chock part (DISCONTINUED) MT70075 could work as long as it's dimensions didn't interfere with the front wheel/fender. The overall height of the chocke is 12-7/8 inches which you'd need to compare that to the dimensions of your front wheel to know for certain if this would fit or not. A smaller one, designed for a bike, like the part # RA-17 might be better. This is 8-9/16 inches tall.

  • Can Rack 'Em Removable Wheel Chock RA-17 Be Mounted in Truck Bed
    The Rack 'Em Removable Wheel Chock # RA-17 can be installed anywhere that offers a suitable mounting surface. This could certainly include a truck bed so long as you can get access to the underside of the bed for installing the base. This carrier does not include hardware so you will want to select suitable hardware and possibly some reinforcement plates for the underside of the bed.

  • Will Spyder Hauler Fender Fit with Rack'em Wheel Chock # RA-1
    We haven't had anybody confirm a fit for a Spyder hauler, but I can confirm that the highest point of the Rack'em Wheel Chock # RA-17 from the ground is 8-9/16". If you measure from the ground to your fender you will be able to tell if it will make contact with your fender of not.

  • Wheel Chock Recommendation for Loading 2009 Yamaha TMax Scooter in Trailer
    The tallest section of the Maxxtow Chock part (DISCONTINUED) MT70075 measures 12-7/8 inches. The front portion of your fender being 19 inches off the ground would be just fine in that regard. That being said I do believe your rotor would interfere with the side rail of the chock system. A better option would be the part # RA-17 which is much smaller and wouldn't interfere. The tallest portion of the chock is 8-9/16 inches.

  • Can Rack'em RA-17 Wheel Chock Handle 700 lb Motorcycle
    The # RA-17 Motorcycle Wheel Chock is designed to be used along with tie down straps to secure a motorcycle during transport. As long as the straps you're using have the proper weight rating for the 700 lb weight of your bike, the # RA-17 will be plenty sturdy. Erickson offers # EM05710 Ratcheting Motorcycle straps sold in pairs that have a 400 lb capacity per strap. Two straps would more than cover the 700 lb weight of your bike.

  • How to Tie Down a Motorcycle in a 7x14 Foot Enclosed Trailer
    If I were you I would go the route of using a wheel chock like our Rackem Wheel Chock # RA-17 and then use the E-tracks to tie down your bike by compressing the forks. The other method you described where you said you wanted to hang the bikes could possibly work but most likely if you were to hit bumps in the road your bike might bounce and become unattached and fall. The E-Track 2 inch D-Ring # E59143 would work well with a set of tie-downs like the Erickson Cargo Tie Downs # 05605....

  • Using E-Track, Tie-Downs, and Wheel Chocks to Haul 2 Harley Davidson Motorcycles
    If I were to haul to Harleys I would make it as safe as possible so a wheel chock would not be a bad idea. Using the E-track is also a good way to go because the track is so versatile. Using a steel plate for support is also the way to go. You have a good grasp on what needs to be done. For a wheel chock, you can use something like # RA-17. It accepts wheels up to 6.5 inches wide. Might I also suggest the motorcycle tie-down assist straps, # 06303. Using these straps on the handle bars...

You would need to compare those dimensions to the wheel setups you have on both Harleys to see if this would fit. Another option is the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock # MTMWC-01R.

  • Wheel Chock Compatible With Go Buddy 50cc Scooter Wheel
    The Rack'em Manufacturing Removable Wheel Chock # RA-17 measures 8-9/16" from base to top of chock and fits tires up to 6-1/2" wide. Your Go Buddy 50cc Scooter has a tire that is about 17 inches in diameter and 3-1/2 inches wide on a 10 inch wheel. That means this wheel chock will be a good fit for your application.

  • Can I Carry Motorcycle With a Hitch Carrier on My Nissan Pathfinder
    I looked up the owner's manual for your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder and it gives all of the specifications and how to check for proper loading, and weight capacities, you can find it on page 10-17 - 10-22. The maximum tongue weight for your Pathfinder is 600 lbs, which is 10% of the max towing capacity 6000 lbs. So unfortunately since the total weight is over 600 lbs, I cannot recommend it, if you can shave 21 lbs off the carrier or the bike it would be within the manufacturers limit. I think...

    Our wheel chocks like Rack 'Em # RA-17 and MaxxTow # MTMWC-01R that you referenced do not have any adjustment or tension control. The # RA-17 accommodates front tires up to 6-1/2-inches wide and the # MTMWC-01R takes tires up to 7-1/8 inches wide and includes mounting hardware. For clearance at your brake disc I would prefer the Rack'Em # RA-17. Since you are trailering your trike you might want to consider also using a wheel tie-down set-up like the Pack'Em # PK-WTD.

  • Will MaxxTow Motorcycle Wheel Chock Fit a Tire with a Wrap Around Fender
    MaxxTow adjustable wheel chock # MTMWC-01R could potentially work on a motorcycle tire with a wrap around fender. It all depends on the specifics. The chock measures 24" long x 9-3/4" wide x 12-7/8" tall overall. At the front of the wheel where the chock will be the tallest it is 12-7/8 inches up from the mounting surface. Take a look at the picture a customer sent us that I have included. Tires don't get much more surrounded than that (well, some Indian fenders) so I would say there...

This wheel chock's pivoting bracket will provide two points of contact for more stability and locks in place to cradle tire. It has a simple bolt-on installation that allows you to attach it to the floor of a trailer, shop, or anywhere else you want to use it with the included mounting hardware. If you plan...
