Lightweight Aircraft Chocks

Prevent movement with Rope Chocks—the alternative to traditional wheel chocks.

We all know that securing your small-to-medium sized aircraft is critical to maintaining safety and compliance when not in flight. And, we’ve all used the same ol’ block-style chocks for years and all agree that they aren’t the most friendly tool in the toolbox.

We knew there was a better way. Meet Rope Chocks.

I designed Rope Chocks for my own aircraft and I’d never think about going back to traditional block-style chocks. I know you’ll feel the same way.

Product Features

Lightweight and Easy-to-use.

Eliminate mis-alignment with Rope Chocks’ lightweight construction and easy installation. Just whip, secure, and cinch.

Wind-resistant Design.

Traditional chocks can leave your plane vulnerable to turn-out under windier conditions. Reduce risk with Rope Chocks’ 360 degrees of coverage.

Rope Chocks are designed for average days where you would use standard chocks. Tying down or hangaring your aircraft during high winds is always preferred.

Non-marking and Quiet Construction.

Traditional rubber, wood, and aluminum chocks rattle around during flight and can leave unsightly marks that aren’t becoming of a high-class operator.

High-visibility Color Scheme.

Rope Chocks are clearly visible, reducing the likelihood of taxiing before unchocking.

...and more!

While we could go on and on, consider a few of these quality-of-life advantages:

  • Weather and UV-resistant construction lasts longer than wood, aluminum, and rubber.
  • Easy alignment and storage keeps your aircraft secure while keeping the weight down in cargo.
  • Custom engraving with your aircraft’s N-number*

Frequently Asked Questions

Rope Chocks are made from marine-grade polypropylene rope designed to withstand the elements. The retaining end is crafted from durable polyurethane that is naturally chemical and UV resistant. The opposite end is fully encapsulated to prevent unraveling.

When snugged against the wheel, Rope Chock’s 360 degree coverage actually provides more protection against unintentional movement when compared to standard block-style chocks.

Simply whip the opposite end around the wheel, secure through the retaining device, and pull tight. It really is a cinch.
