Any auto mechanic who has used a creeper knows the frustration of rolling into a stray nut or bolt; it's like an unforseen panic stop. Inventor Bob Butler knows all about that problem...
While lying on his creeper doing some welding under a car, a blob of hot metal burned its way down his shirt sleeve. In trying to make a hasty retreat, the creeper wheels locked up on some small bolts sitting in the path of escape, leaving him no choice but to slide off the stalled creeper, and get to the first aid kit.
That incident gave Bob the idea for "Creeper Sweeper" self-sweeping casters. They feature a nylon brush that clears debris out of the way, so the wheels keep rolling, instead of getting locked up.
"It's very frustrating to be rolling on creeper, only to be stopped dead by some tiny object that gets wedged under a wheel. Creeper Sweepers keep this from happening " said Butler.
Creeper Sweeper Casters were recently featured in Hot Rod, Popular Mechanics, and Car Craft magazines. In addition, they received Honorable Mention in this years Invent Now America contest.
