General Information

Any auto mechanic who has used a creeper, rolling stool, tool stand or box, 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 to get to the first aid kit.

"It's very frustrating to be rolling on a creeper, only to be stopped dead by some tiny object that gets wedged under a wheel. Creeper Sweepers keep this from happening."

Caster hangups are now a thing of the past with Creeper Sweeper self-sweeping casters.
These casters feature a specially designed brush that sweeps through debris and small objects as the wheel rolls, greatly reducing wheel lock-up/bind up. They are a simple solution to an age old problem.

Commonly installed on automotive creepers, stools and other rolling devices that are prone to wheel bind up, they also work wonderfully in photo studios on caster equipped stands and booms, pushing electrical cords and other obstacles out of the way.

The brush holder is precision formed stainless steel, and clips right on the leading side of the caster.

The brush itself is long wearing nylon, is chemical resistant, and has 90 percent bend recovery. It is designed to provide good sweeping action with minimal effect on mobility.

The wheel is polyurethane for extended wear, and is also resistant to chemicals.

CreeperSweeper equipped casters are presently available in 2-1/2" diameter swivel with double row bearings, 5/16" x 18 threaded stem mount, and a load capacity of 120 lbs. This size is standard for most creepers on the market today.
