PLTW Mechanic Creeper Form Sign In

Hello, my name is Matt Roseboom and am enrolled as a junior at Twin Valley High School. I am currently taking an engineering class called Engineering Design and Development which allows us to innovate an existing idea. If you could help us by clicking on the link below that would be great. Thanks for your time.
Do you own or have you used a creeper to work on a vehicle?*
  • Yes
  • No
Do you struggle to reach up for things while working under a vehicle?*For example being unable to reach up to a part you are working on while under the vehicle
  • Yes
  • No
If yes, is this due to the creeper's stationary height?*
  • Yes
  • No
Would you consider purchasing a creeper that solves this height problem?*Without cost in mind, would you purchase a product that's a solution to this problem
  • Yes
  • No
What is an area of improvement a creeper could benefit from?*
  • Height
  • Wheels getting stuck on debris
  • Maneuverability
  • Comfort

If you can answer these question in numerical order that would be great, thanks.

  • Yes (yes but VERY low)
  • No
Would you consider purchasing a creeper that solves this height problem?*Without cost in mind, would you purchase a product that's a solution to this problem
  • Yes
  • No (like the one I have as your body is as low as the wheels now, six wheels rolls over rough or imperfect floor well. BTW was a no name only $20 +/- but like a much better one?)
What is an area of improvement a creeper could benefit from?*
  • Height
  • Wheels getting stuck on debris
  • Maneuverability
  • Comfort
  • (other: not run over a trouble light cord Cool )
  • (other II: Make a light on the creeper, battery but bright LED)

Re: PLTW Mechanic Creeper Form Sign In

Couple more thoughts on a better creeper I missed above.


*Reaching up for a career using and preferring creepers if the item was too high I would get it from the top.


* Managed but nice that they are cleanable up to washable if a spill got on padding which IMO is must.


* Another and not sure how it would be done is a quick way to lock wheels. Always seem to push or pull on something and it rolls away so using feet to stay in place might be nicer is the thing stuck in place.


Another "other" lightweight, strong and easy to store away or quickly out of the way when you are done needing it at all or just out of way for a while,

I call them sleepers. They need to have ones that massage your back, have cup holders, light mounts, and a USB for charging your cell phone.


Someone posted this a while back, maybe it was J.
