I think I have the same table as yours GW (Harbor Freight?) I like the wheel chock idea. I think I would use mine more if I could load the bike on the table myself without the fear of dropping it. Which chock did you use? It looks like you don't need any tie-downs to hold the bike when using that chock, correct?That's exactly the problem. A table lift works much better if a ride in front tire chock is added to replace the tire clamp. Otherwise, one person safely getting the bike on the lift is difficult. The side stand foot dangles over the side rail of the lift when the bike is centered.
I thought that looked like the Condor chock...very nice but a little spendy. I doubt the HF chock is the same quality, but if it's a lot less money then it's probably worth it.Mine is HF too. The ramp had pin welded on each side but the setup allowed removal. I just never do. That may be why one pin broke off and had to be replaced by a nut and bolt. I got a very expensive Condor chock but HF now has something that looks nearly the same for a lot less money.
I picked one up this earlier this year (mines red). I was in the middle of building my garage and had it stored in my crappy caravan for 2 months. The garage is finished now and also looking forward to using it.Princess Auto had this wonderful device on sales $ 100.00 offf...so after 40 years of changing my oil on my hands and knees.. I now have a lift..
Awesome.. early Christmas prsent to myself..
High quality chocks are meant to deal with the forces generated while towing your bike on a trailer, that kind of quality is not needed to hold it steady on a lift. I would go cheap cheap like a bird.... :biggrinjester:I thought that looked like the Condor chock...very nice but a little spendy.
