I think wood blocks is a good way to go. Park your 21" where it goes, and screw down some 2x4's. Mower should stay put unless you're taking speed bumps at 35 mph

Block of wood will be fine, I mean even if wheels get over one block it might get the frame stuck on the wood haha.

How do you place them. Any pics ? Do you put them 4 inch high or the fly side down ? Around the entire mower or just the wheels like 4 rows ?

I would put the mowers front wheels against the front wall, then make two 2x4's make a L shape, place one flat on the ground behind the mower with the wheels against the width and then the other one standing on edge against it as a safety just in case the mower jumps the other one? I figure its easier to slide it into place that way too.
