The Tail Bone™ – A new take on shop stools.

TAILBONE_CREEPER2

Introducing the Tail Bone™; a new approach to the traditional creeper seat. Created by a master mechanic to be more comfortable, durable, provide greater ease-of-use and of higher quality than any other mechanic’s stool currently on the market! Utilising the same five inch (5″) diameter wheels that that made the Bone™ creeper so widely known and famous allow the Tail Bone™ to roll around a workshop simply travelling over air hoses, rough surfaces, electrical cords, clutter and much more!

The one-of-a-kind designed tripod base provides a naturally stable working platform, providing an extra-wide base at thirty-two inches (32″), the Tail Bone™ prevents you from tipping over when you lean down to pick up that dropped wrench. The whole stool swivels with your every movement with only light input from your thighs. The Tail Bone™ acts as if it were a natural extension of your body and because it moves with you, the high strength polypropylene copolymer legs won’t ever get in your way and you can easily tuck your feet under the seat in order to get up close with your project. The Tail Bone™ is easily manoeuvrable and vastly reduces strain upon your back and knees whilst working on the job and allows you to get on with your work faster and quicker. With it’s tripod design, the Tail Bone™ also possesses less wheels to roll over obstructions and with it’s cosy and widely designed tractor-style seat, it is sized to suit all posteriors. Cruising around the workshop at a low twelve inches (12″) off of the ground, makes for the perfect height for any job that requires you to get low.

One of the most important features on the Tail Bone™ are within it’s wheels. Ordinarily, stool wheels are the conventional stool’s weakest point as they are too small at one and a half inch (1 1/2″) and as such, they easily get caught up or stopped by the smallest of obstacles and manage to break at the worst moment as well as being a costly item to replace with a complete set being almost as much as purchasing a new stool.

The Tail Bone™ utilises custom-moulded five and and one-eighth inch (5 1/8″) diameter wheels with an oil-impregnated center bearing, which is specially formulated and moulded in place with one inch (1″) wide tyres that roll with ease and last even longer than our previous design. The proudly American-made steel castor frames are cad-plated, have dual race adjustable ball bearing swivels. They are securely thru-bolted to the Tail Bone™ body and have the addition of a winged design that adds form to it’s function and best of all, the wheels their selves are guaranteed for the life of the Tail Bone™ (against manufacturer defects)!

Possessing a 150 kgs capacity, the Tail Bone™ is made from the exact same tough engineering grade polypropylene as the original Bone™ and our other creepers. Enjoy the smooth, shock and impact resistant, easy to clean, oil / solvent proof and easy to clean stool that is the Tail Bone™!
