How to use a car creeper
Step 1 - Raise vehicle
To use a car creeper, you must first raise the vehicle using a jack.
You will also need a pair of stands to support the weight of the vehicle while performing maintenance.
To find out how to jack your specific model of vehicle, refer to the manual.
Step 2 - Position axle stands
Make sure the vehicle is raised high enough off the ground to allow the car creeper and you to slide beneath it safely.
Placing the support stands at their maximum height should leave enough room for this.
Step 3 - Position car creeper
Place the car creeper onto a hard and level surface away from the vehicle.
Step 4 - Lie or sit on car creeper
Lie on your back so the car creeper is fully supporting your back, bottom and head.
Placing yourself in this position will allow your legs to move freely so you can push and navigate to where you want to go.
Step 5 - Manoeuvre yourself
Using your legs, push yourself underneath the vehicle.
Now you are ready to work.
If you decide to take a break in the middle of performing maintenance, make sure you push the creeper under the vehicle or stand it on end.
After you have finished, be sure to stand the car creeper on end or store it in a safe place to prevent it becoming damaged or causing injury.
