Thanks to Brad Kopp for sharing the following tips with me. In Brad's own words and photos:
I use a cheap Harbor Freight wheel chock. Boy it makes parking easy, just roll in and that's it, locked in solid. I would use tie downs if doing work on it.
My garage floor is slippery and when I hit the pivoting lock part of the chock the whole thing slides away instead of the wheel going up and over then the catch locking it in...everything just slips forward. If you mount the chock to a piece of wood long enough for the back wheel to weight it down then the chock can't move. Same when getting it out, I'd try to jerk it from the latch and the whole thing with bike slid backwards. Got to make sure the wooden platform is longer than the wheel base before running into the pivot part or you just push the chock forward (even with the wood platform) and it never goes up and in. I could use a piece of lumber to the wall so the chock can't move forward but that won't help when getting it out.
