I've seen a single piece of clear fishing line sticking up between the rails and a little higher than the truck axles. Nearly invisible,  very little resistance when operating but enough to hold a car.

First, please do not share your electro-mechanical solutions.  I know about those. I am looking for any solutions that are physical blocking devices that can be placed on the rail or across the rail or set between the rails that are removable in a simple pull with the fingers.  I already know about weeds and stickpins.
