Rubber Wheel Stops go by a few names such as parking blocks, tyre stoppers and wheel stoppers and are used all over the world. They serve a variety of purposes from protecting vehicles from high kerbs to assisting coaches and trucks with parking in the correct position. Wheel stoppers are different from wheel chocks in that they are permanently installed and are bolted to the ground.
Tyre stoppers or wheel stoppers for cars are to stop cars from driving forward (or backwards) into high kerbs, buildings or other vehicles. They prevent the vehicle from “overshooting” the parking bay and make parking faster and easier for the driver.
When used for trucks and coaches they are used to assist with the proper alignment of the vehicle, or as a reversing aid. With larger vehicles it is often harder to determine where the rear wheels of a vehicle are, by using stops drives can feel the rear wheels make contact resulting in improved safety.
