First, let’s define the term Condor Wheel Chock.  Condor is a brand name for a motorcycle wheel chock that uses a pivoting cradle or “teeter totter” to contain the motorcycle in the chock.  Most people use the term Condor to describe any motorcycle wheel chock using this technology (they’re all pretty much the same), similar to using the brand name Coke to describe a soft drink or Sheet Rock to describe dry wall.  In the information below, we’ll list Condor / Teeter Totter when referring to motorcycle wheel chocks using the pivoting cradle technology.

The key differences between the Wheeldock motorcycle wheel chock and the common Condor / Teeter Totter.

 

Wheeldock

- Patented design contains both the front and back of the forward wheel.

 Condor / Teeter Totter

- Uses a “V” shaped front strut and rear cradle to help “balance” the motorcycle upright.

 

Wheeldock

- Rigid all welded construction.  No assembly required.

Condor / Teeter Totter

- Bolt and pinned together.  The chock will bend and flex in use.  Also, have fun with the instructions written using a Chinese to English translation program.

 

Wheeldock

- Flat entry and exit of the chock.  Only one person required to chock and un-chock the motorcycle.

Condor / Teeter Totter

- Usually requires two strong people to un-chock the motorcycle.

 

Wheeldock

- No compression of the motorcycle suspension when trailering.  Due to the Wheeldock design and construction, the chock will keep the motorcycle safe and upright using only 2 straps.

Condor / Teeter Totter

- Because the chock does not contain the front wheel and flexes during use, the motorcycle must be clamped down hard using multiple straps when transporting.   This is not only tough on the bike, but the straps, d-     rings, and trailer as well.

 

Wheeldock

- Does not need to be fastened to the garage or shop floor.  The motorcycle is very secure freestanding in the Wheeldock wheel chock.

Condor / Teeter Totter

- Must be fastened down to enter and exit the chock.  The motorcycle can be pushed out of the chock if not strapped down.

 

Wheeldock

- Trailer mounting hardware included with the wheel chock.  The Wheeldock chock is simple to install.  You can trailer your motorcycle within 30 minutes of the chock arriving at your door.

Condor / Teeter Totter

- Hardware is purchased separately (if available).  Please keep this hidden cost in mind when comparing products.

 

Wheeldock

- Lifetime warranty.  Made in the USA!

Condor / Teeter Totter

- 1 year warranty at best (depending on brand).
