These chocks are a little different than Anderson, just be aware of the difference, they can be be dangerous. I have not used Anderson chocks, but appear they will not walk off the chock, but these will, especially if the anchor is not used.

For example: I once used chocks like these to level my trailer side to side while it was connected the TV. When I disconnected the hitch, the trailer moved to the side as it rolled off the chock. Fortunately, the trailer moved away from me, or I could have been injured. Just saying.
Yes, I think following Ian’s instruction of installing the second chock and ‘seating’ or pre-setting it is very important in all situations, even when not using leveling devices. The trailer must be totally stationary before unhitching. Even 1/2” movement will not allow the yoke to slide straight off the ball.

Absolutely one HAS to allow the wheel to settle into the chock by putting the vehicle in neutral before disconnecting! In 5 years of using them (and spending about a total of three years out of the five in a trailer, traveling), we haven’t had any slippage.

These are the chocks I bought that gave me trouble:

I still use them mainly to help tilt the trailer at dump station, or if I'm staying one night and don't bother to unhitch trailer. Based upon my experience, I would never again back my trailer onto these, and then unhitch the trailer. I use 2x4 and 3x3 wood blocks under tires to level the trailer side to side when I unhitch trailer.

I vote for the Andersons. Been using them for a couple years on my Casita, they level very easily, and are very secure chocks too. With a double-axle Escape, you need a pair of them and one of the pair needs about 2" trimmed off the thin end of the longer piece, so it will fit between the wheels.
