Time to retire the old Craftsman wood creeper. Saw one in a Griots' Garage catalog that looked pretty nice - dropped rails, adjustable headrest, etc for about $100.
Also saw a stool creeper that looked nice and would save wear and tear onthe knees.
Anybody have any experience with either creeper or with Griots Garage?

I guess that Griot's is ok but you could probably get the same kind at a more attractive price. I used to get their catalog but they seemed a bit pricey.

I never really liked using creepers. I'd rather have a big piece of cardboard.

As far as creepers go: The best one I have ever seen is "The Bone" my father-in-law has one. It may suddenly vanish one of these days hehehe.

Take a look:

pricey, but I did find it one sale for $73 at

I have one of the sitting creeper stools. It is very handy for brake jobs, but that's about it.

well..... off topic a little bit...

i have rescued broken office chairs from my place of employment and given them to a coupla friends for their garages....

the backs were broken off of the chairs, so you have this cool little rolling, adjustable height, soft bottom shop stool.... anyways, for freebies they are pretty handy for "squat" jobs!

otherwise i have no advice...just buttin' in!! ha ha

My dad was a mechanic and after his untimely death in 1961 I inherited his Snap-on tools and the "Jeepers creeper". The creeper was several years old then and is still going strong in my garage. Probably not much chance of buying one like it today.
