    A few weeks ago I watched a video on the internet about a velke that you could back up. It had two plates you stood on to activate two pins to prevent it from spinning all the way around and another pedal on the top you stepped on to lock it up so it could be backed. If anyone else has seen this velke can you recall the web site or the company that sold it ?

    I back mine up the same way I do my trailer with the truck, just let the velke lead and follow with the Wb...
    Takes some practice and watch your feet (I highly recommend stepping off first) but after a while the jackknifing hardly bothers.
