The Ultimate Scooter Hauler Accessory

June 3, 2015

Okay, you don’t have a Ford Transit Connect (The Ultimate Scooter Hauler™), but you do have a pickup truck, or a solid-sided utility trailer. No worries, Scooter Mercato‘s gotcha covered.

Sterling 7000 scooter wheel chock

Behold the Sterling-7000 scooter wheel chock. Made in the USA, it’s a fine piece of fabrication, powder-coated to prevent rust and corrosion.

Best of all, there’s no need to drill any holes in your truck or trailer bed (though if you want to secure it with a nut and bolt, there is a hole). Put it up against the front of the bed, roll your scooter’s front wheel into the loop, attach ratchet ties and a Canyon Dancer, cinch ‘er down tight, and you are good to go!

The tension from the tie-downs and the rubber booties will hold your bike securely in place. Much more securely than sandstone bricks or 2x6s, for sure.

Of course, the wheel loop is positioned so the front fender of your scoot is set back far enough from the front of the bed to prevent damage.

While the list of compatible scooters is all vintage, I can’t imagine any scooter with a ~3.50 inch wide front tire having a problem fitting into the loop.

How much? $63.50, plus S&H. You could have two. And it would easily pay for itself with the money you don’t spend repairing a munched front fender. Favicon

In case you were wondering, no, I received no compensation for this post. Zip, zero, nada. I just think this is a product worthy of my dear readers’ attention.
