SteadymateTM by Kinedyne®, industry leaders in Tie-Downs and Hardware for recreational vehicle securement, is proud to introduce their newly reengineered Wheel Chock which is designed for ease of use in transporting, maintaining and storing all types of motorcycles – from street to dirt, scooters to choppers and everything in between.
“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve our products and ultimately make them more user-friendly,” explains Larry Harrison, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Kinedyne Corporation. “We received such positive feedback from the first edition of the Steadymate Wheel Chock that it was only natural for us to release an enhanced model, allowing us to stay on top of our customers’ needs. This is another great example of our manufacturing capabilities.”
The latest edition of the Steadymate Wheel Chock features an upgraded Pivot Bracket and Upper Chock Bracket design that accommodates a wider variety of bikes and now accepts tire widths of 50 to 150 mm and diameters and from 12″ to 26″. Any type of bike tire – Tall, Short, Skinny, Fat – it fits them all. Another fantastic feature of the Wheel Chock is its portability, making it easier for users to transport it from the garage to the trailer without the need for permanent installation. This new design also provides for easier adjustability and more stability. The only thing left for riders to think about is where to travel on their next adventure!
· Assembles easily in about 15 minutes in six simple steps.
· No side braces or clamps removing all potential for damage to rims and tires often experienced by users of competitor’s Wheel Chocks.
· New design keeps bike supported in an upright position allowing easy one-person tie-down operation -the weight of your bike locks it into place. No need for clamps or pinching, which can put unnecessary stress on the tire assembly.
· An addition of two more rubber feet – for a total of ten – that makes the Wheel Chock even more stable when exiting and entering the chock with your bike.
· Upgraded design replaces four short Hex Bolts with two long Hex Bolts on the Base Channel for quicker adjustability.
The enhancements on the new Wheel Chock have already received rave reviews from critics and customers from all across the industry. The use of the newly upgraded Steadymate Wheel Chock adds a high level of security to the transportation of motorcycles, but as always, Steadymate recommends that riders use the “4 x 45°” rule when securing bikes for transit – four tie-downs (two in the front and two in the rear), each placed on a 45° angle (top to bottom and front to back).
