I haven't had the time to look at this that I had hoped for - just a quick hint on #5. It's an unusual sense of "pop".

Lovely clues, jolan - thanks again. I'm sorry that I didn't have more time to look at them today (I did consider BARNET for #1, but yours is very much better!)

Chock-a-block is originally a sailing expression. It means that the sail has been hoisted (by the halyard) so that it reaches the top pulley or "block".
