Review of the Rumber 20 inch Long Recycled Rubber Wheel Chock with Eyebolt


Adam: Hi everybody. Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rumber 20 inch wheel chocks. We're going to have a couple different orientations here and pretty much I don't really have to go into details. You guys know what chocks do. It just makes sure your stuff doesn't roll.

So whether you're just trying to prevent that or just upgrading from a brick or something you we're using before, today we're going to go into some of the details of what these things are going to be good for. So these 20 inch chocks are going to be ideal for those dually setups that you guys may have, whether it is just an RV like you see here or if you're a trucker and you have your backend of your truck or trailer. Also for you construction guys or even the agriculture guys. A lot of the times you are going to have duallys on those grain trucks or those commercial trucks that you guys drive.And a lot of the times when you're on a site, it's not always concrete and of course, if you're in the field, it's not concrete either. With having all of this surface area and being able to pretty much span the whole length of both of those tires on your back axles it is definitely going to help them not role, obviously, but mainly kind of just keep it from sinking into those more soft ground, whether it be in the field or again, at the construction site.

A lot of the times I actually saw a couple of chocks sunk into the ground and maybe only sticking up maybe an inch or so and they're not really doing a whole lot. But with this big one, I don't think we'll have any issues there. So as you can see here, we got a little bit of soggy ground here and that's not going to be good.If we had our chock down there, it would do the same exact thing. That's why this big guy is going to have plenty of surface area so it's going to help minimize the sinkage. So if you don't have a dually set up on one of your pieces of equipment, whether it be the RV, a truck, commercial truck, grain truck, whatever it is, we do have a lot of different sizes and also orientations.

We're going to have a single and then some that comes in pairs with chains connecting them. So what we're going to do is actually get them all lined out, go inside etrailer, and we're going to go over all of your options there and then come back out and continue the video with some specs. So these are all the wheel chocks that Rumber does have at etrailer that we have available.There's going to be different sizes and of course, variations as well. We're going to have the eight inch chocks, we're going to have the 12 inch chocks, we're going to have the 16 inch chocks, and of course the big old 20 inch chocks. We are going to have, obviously, just the ones in the single.

It's going to have a little loop on one side, but then all of them are going to come with the variations of either a three foot chain in between two of them or a five foot chain in between both of them. So it really just depends on what equipment you guys are working with. For your single tire, smaller trailers I do think we can get away with the eight inch chock. With the 12 inch chock it is going to be for maybe those wider tires on those single tire trailers that you guys may have.And then we'll have the big sixteens. This is when we kind of get into the dually type trailers or campers, whatever you may be storing somewhere and you need them not to roll obviously. And then of course we have the big boys, the big 20 inches. And these are mainly going to be for your massive dually trailers. Maybe you're even just at a campsite with an RV and you're not on concrete or gravel. So you're going to see a lot of sinkage. So with this we're just going to have a lot more surface area to be able to put on the ground so they're not going to sink. There was a couple of times where I saw a couple of chocks that we're kind of sunk into the ground on a construction site and I do believe that these will give you more surface area and prevent that from happening. But at the end of the day, it all just depends on what equipment you guys have and that will determine what chocks you need.But today we're going to be focusing solely on these big 20 inch chocks. As for our 20 inch chocks, we're going to start with just the single. I think this would be good for preventing one of your pieces of equipment from rolling one way. Let's just say you're on a hill, you're facing downward, you just really need a chock on the front to prevent it from rolling. Also, especially if you have a motor with your dually setup. Obviously our transmissions can be taken a lot of that weight whenever we're on a decline. So to kind of maybe help it out a little bit we can actually just put this up there just to take some of that strain away from the transmission. Other than that, I do believe if you guys have an RV like this one, we're going to be moving around quite a bit.Also, if we are, let's just say, in the fields, maybe loading and unloading hay bales off a trailer, we don't really want that trailer to be moving around. Or if you're on a construction site and you're moving some material on or off the trailer, you really don't want it to roll either. So I do think the three foot chain would be ideal for this because this way we can just hug the tire and whenever we're in the RV and we're moving around, it's not really going to want to roll and shift as much. I like to have my RV extremely stable because it just feels more homey that way. And of course, if you are loading and unloading on a construction or agriculture trailer, again, keeping that nice and steady is definitely going to be a plus especially if you have a lot of weight on that trailer.You do not want that thing to kind of get away because odds are you probably have equipment around it and we don't want any accidents happening. So if you are a dual axle dually guy, meaning if you have a big ol' trailer like this and you're trucking around with it or it could be obviously just a construction trailer or something like that. I do think that the chains will come in handy in this instance just because we can go ahead and actually one, of course, just kind of saddle one tire just like that and like that.So it can go on each side of one tire if you need it to be nice and stationary. Also it is going to make for a relatively easy removal. You can do it by yourself. If you're in the construction site by yourself or in the field by yourself or just trucking around somewhere by yourself, it's going to be a little bit easier. It's just have one in one hand and then you go on the other side, you can get the other ones in that hand. Other than that with the five, if we really are on an incline we only want to stop this thing from rolling one way, I think what we could do with the five one is use all that chain to be able to put a chock on both the same side of both of our tires. One thing to note though, depending on how big your tires are and how spread out your two axles are in the back, we do not have enough room to chock the outside of both the tires.So we have some options here. If you think that's an issue, one, the chain does have an adjuster on the end so we can just undo that with either a tool or just by hands. And we can either one, add chain to fit the size that we need or if you don't like the whole chain idea, they are kind of heavy, kind of loud, and kind of cold in my hands, you can always just go ahead and grab, if you don't want to add extra changes, just go and grab the single and just grab two of them and you can just tie some rope in between them. It'll be a little bit easier on your hands and it might be little more customed to your guy's set up. So the 20 inch chocks being the largest size that Rumber has available here at etrailer, they really are going to span the whole entire width of this particular trailer.I mean, this is about 24 inches. So at two feet of tire and we pretty much have almost all of that covered. So I think this is going to be your best bet when it comes to surface area, whether you're dealing with concrete and you just got big tires or you have a softer ground as well. The more surface area the better. You won't see any of that sinkage or anything going on like that. But we did do the 16 on these tires and it really wasn't horrible. They didn't have a whole lot of tire left unchocked, but if you think the 20s are going to be right for you, go for it, but if you think you can get away with the 16s, do that too. So initially when I started thinking about chocks the first thing that goes through my head was way back when my grandpa was just like, "I don't need any chocks."He'd just throw a four by four underneath there. And he's like, "It's like a dollar." Honestly, when I kind of think of it on a business end, so if you are driving around for somebody or you're at a construction site, a lot of it just has to do with appearance. Yes, it's got to be functional and yes, it might work just as good as a big old rock you find, but at the end of the day, we do need to look professional and I do think that these chocks do look relatively professional. There's a couple things that we're going to go over about these chocks. One is just the dimensions. Pretty simple stuff. Obviously these are the 20 inch long ones, but the width down here is going to be about seven and three quarter inches wide and we are going to have about four and three quarter inches of height here too.And that's going to be universal throughout all of these different sizes. Another thing to think about is just what these things are made of. The fact that they are recycled makes me feel great about the purchase and also it's pretty much just a bunch of old tires and old plastic. So I do think it's going to be a lot less abrasive to your tires. It's pretty much rubber on rubber. So you don't really have to worry about something breaking and then maybe shooting a splinter up into your wheel. Also with it being recycled rubber, you don't really get that horrible, horrible, strong rubber smell. Honestly, it's not too bad and we had a bunch of these things inside etrailer in the bay when we we're shooting that video inside and honestly, I didn't really smell it. I thought it was going to completely cover the room with that scent, but it didn't.So that is always a plus. Another thing we need to think about is all the wear and tear that we're going to put on these things. One being if we leave them outside, don't have to worry about it. It's not going to soak in any of that water and it is UV resistant as well. But on top of that we need to think about all the fluids that will be down by are tires. Brake fluid is extremely corrosive, but it won't affect these chocks here. They won't absorb any of that and that also goes for gas, diesel, oil, and all that jazz. So you really don't really have to worry about that. Another thing is, if you're looking for a chock that's just really durable, it's going to hold up, this thing will. You can toss them around this way and that way and I don't think we'll have any issues long-term. Alrighty guys, durability test. First up is our basic chock. Let's see if she holds up. All right, you're good. Durability test number two with the Rumber chocks. Let's see how she holds up.Well, all good Joe. Thank you. Well other than that, you can kind of see it. This one really didn't give it all. The other one kind of smashed down and kind of eventually rolled over like we expected. This one stayed put. It did climb it. It took a little bit more effort to do so, but this didn't compress whatsoever. So we can't really see any signs of wear or deformation on this one just because the Rumber, it's honestly, it's a tank. It really is going to hold up to a lot of abuse. You don't really have to worry about it. This one is still intact, which impresses me, but there's a lot more stress cracks when it got compressed. This whole entire thing started moving, crinkling down. So now we're seeing a little bit more wear. And that's just from that one roll over.You do that multiple times, it's probably going to get worse. But honestly, if you just want to have a one-stop shop and have a chock for a long, long, long, long time, the Rumber's definitely your better bet. So if you are an owner of a dually rig of some sort, I would definitely recommend either the 20 inch like you see here or the 16 inch. They're just going to spread out that pressure throughout both of the tires. Sometimes you see a couple dually setups and they're all chocked up, but they only put one smaller one on one tire.If you think about it, all that weight is being put on that one tire. Might as well just evenly distribute it so you don't really add any extra wear and tear on your tires because tires are expensive and if you're a construction guy or an agriculture guy, tires get your stuff to the place that makes you money. So try to take care of your stuff. And I think these are going to do the best at that. Other than that, again, these we're the Rumber 20 inch recycled rubber and plastic wheel chocks.
