Typically, while holding the toe brakes, then set the parking brakes. All the parking brakes does is to hold the current hydraulic pressure being applied. Be forewarned, most parking brakes will tend to bled over time and slowly release pressure. In other words, only use for short periods of time. i.e. long enough to get out of the aircraft and place chocks.
