    Hi
    We are having a few problems sourcing a scooter chock to help secure the scooter in transit. The scooter has 12 inch wheels and sits about 3 inches from the top of the van garage when loaded, so the chock cannot be one that raises the wheel by much, if at all.

    Looked on ebay, amazon etc with no luck.

    Has anybody found something that works for them recently?

    cheers

    Been there bought several and ended up making one myself.

    Initially I wanted one that held the scooter upright while I strapped it down. Those all seem to rock the wheel up then down again and I didn't have the garage height to do that. I found a link on the internet http://modernvespa.com/forum/topic8548 which I made. It holds the front wheel straight but won't hold the scooter up while I strap it down. I did try adding uprights to the sides to hold the scooter upright but still wasn't happy with it so they got removed. I have rails on the roof of the garage so I use a couple of straps to the rear hand rail each side to loosely hold it upright while I get out and go round to the front to strap it down properly. I usually leave the rear straps in place just in case something goes wrong with the front ratchet straps. I also use the roof rails to bungee tables, chairs etc. against the side wall to ensure they don't fall against the scooter while we are moving.

    That is very pretty Allan, but I do not think I would have made the front sloping as that will only encourage the wheel to ride up it !

    Thanks Jaws

    That looks as if it would work for us...You wouldn't think it would be so hard to find something.

    Cheers
