Re: Parking car on slope?

Yes buddy! Tyre stopper will reduce the load on hand brakes to certain extent by complimenting hand brake's job (Just like how you place a stone to be on safer side). Hand brakes are designed to be used while parking in slopes. Any car manual also stipulates the same. So, I presume that it should be capable of withstanding the wear and tear.

A good point discussed. I am worried about the wear & tear of hand brake, but the point which keeps me relaxed is I use hand brake, I keep 4 size stones at all 4 tyres & I keep gear engaged. I guess with this combined effect load on the hand brake reduces. Correct me experts if there is anything wrong in my technique.

I will be parking my car on the incline and I am worried about it as the incline is high ..
It is like the house is at higher angle and road is at low angle. I will also put pics.
Please help me if I should park the car facing front towards the road or back side

Park it in whatever direction, but keep your tyre oriented towards the curb.
