Rohnil Wheel Chocks
A self-tightening wheel chock device is provided for vehicles & aircraft's and is generally adapted to be easily installed and removed from either the nose wheel or the wing wheels. The wheel chock will maintain intimate contact with a retained aircraft wheel while the plane is being buffeted by wind or backwash. The wheel chock further is weather resistant and medium weight to provide a simple and efficient, yet reliable, system for protecting parked aircraft from unwanted movement resulting from buffeting of the aircraft by wind, prop or jet wash, etc.
A heavy duty chock, for use in preventing the movement of wheeled vehicles, particularly commercial or military aircraft, is triangular, preferably equirectangular in cross-section, has a longitudinal axis, and is divided transverse to its longitudinal axis into a number of triangular sections. The clock has an end section at each end thereof and a number of central sections located between the end sections.Construction Of Wheel Chock:
A wheel chock for aircraft comprising a first inverted U-shaped channel member which includes a horizontal upper surface and side surfaces extending downwardly therefrom to form vertical side edges. A first side panel is secured to one side edge of the first channel member and extends horizontally in a first direction with at least one locking hole extending there through. An aperture extends through each side surface of the first channel member in axial alignment about a horizontal axis. Both apertures are of a common predetermined diameter. A second U-shaped channel member includes a horizontal upper surface and side surfaces extending downwardly therefrom to form vertical side edges. A second side panel is secured to one side edge of the second channel member and extends horizontally in a second direction opposite from the first direction with at least one locking hole extending there through adapted to be positioned in alignment with at least one of the holes of the first side panel. A cylindrical rod extends horizontally in the second direction from adjacent to the end of the second channel member remote from the second side plate and is slidingly positionable within the apertures of the first channel member to an extent determined by the alignment of locking holes of the first and second side plates. A chain is secured to the first channel memberChoice Of Sizes
Width can be varied by selective use of individual sections (from 3 to 7).
