Griots must have realized this as they now sell these "bottle holder" accessories for an additional $10...

    This stool is a good idea, but it`s ultimate design is poor. I would not recommend buying this particular product.
    Good feedback! Thank you.

    I’ve been using it for about a year, no problems at all. The side trays hold the Griot’s bottles just fine. The drawer is good for holding my scangrip hand light.

    Re: Griots Garage Rolling Sit-On Creeper

    I bought mine back in June, I love it. I use it all the time on everything from cleaning jams, rinseless washes, polishing the side of vehicles to wheels and tires. My back thanks me for it. I wish it had a rod to hang bottles on, I find the compartments to be pretty handy. It would be a plus if the height were adjustable, IMO since it’s not adjustable I feel like it sits at a good height.

    Add the creeper seat from Detail king to the list. Perfect height too. And priced decent. Think I like this solution the best out of all of them.

    See the issue I have with that sytle of creeper seat is it tips over rather easly and gets caught on the cracks in my garage floor. I`ve been think of try to fit larger wheels on it - like the ones on the GG model. I also prefer to sit on mine sideways which is why I think the GG might be a better choice for my use...

    I have one of these in my arsenal as well. This is the one I use least of all. A bit low for me and seems easier to tip.

    Re: Griots Garage Rolling Sit-On Creeper

    I use both of these depending on the situation. I too have problems with kneeling and actually would rather sit on the ground or the knee & back pads but also have problems with my hands and makes it quite painful to get up. They both ride on 5" wheels which roll well over most surfaces. I did not put the tray on the seat because I see it could be more problematic that helpful for me. I may cut it pie shaped and try it tho.

    How is that `Bone`, how wide it it when laying on it?, I`m sure I`m not alone when we do a lot of detailing on our backs to get the under chassis and those tight spaces you can`t possibly do while sitting.

    Re: Griots Garage Rolling Sit-On Creeper

    One reason why I`ve passed on The Bone is that it looks like it`d hold/retain water and I spray a lot of water/etc. when working on the undercarriages. And while the padding on my creepers isn`t anything great, it`s better than hard plastic. AND..gee, I`m really slamming that thing ...it looks like it`d be harder to get on/off of than my regular ones (noting that I`m, uhmm..pretty agile for my age and get up/down a lot quicker than many, dozens of times per wash) and harder to grab hold of to move it around (no framework to grab).

    I`m using two old Griot`s creepers...one a plain flat one from right around the time Richard founded `em and the other is the first of their fancier Cadillac of Creepers with an adjustable headrest...which was always slipping out of position often with head-banging effect. I finally removed the tilt mechanism and fixed the headrest in place at a kinda-OK angle.

    They are in *terrible* condition...but are really easy for me to use since I have decades of experience with `em; know exactly how much pressure I can put on which part of `em to avoid any tipping/etc. and they`re both really easy to grab hold of and more around. When I`m gonna be up/down so many times I don`t want to make it hard on myself.

    AND I bet that what I like wouldn`t suit some people any more than their faves would suit me!

    I too use my round-cushion, height-adjustable seat the most. Got mine from Imparts back in the mid `80s and it`s still fine though its padding is pretty broken down.

    My flat seat one came from Griot`s, but other than having a drawer (which I basically never use) it`s just like the Detail King one.

    Gee, I don`t use either of those seats for months at a time.

    Re: Griots Garage Rolling Sit-On Creeper

    I have the above Detail King type but mine`s a Craftsman.

    The only defect in the design I`ve found in this `mechanic creeper seat`is with the tubular steel design in the C shape brackets, when it needs to be D shaped to support you when you sit, it puts all the weight on the elbows (the weakest point), of the bracket and if you sit down too fast and just a little too hard it will bend, the D support bar stops that from happening.
