I have a number of rugs from the trunks of totals that I use, you know the ones with Corolla or Lexus stitched into them? LOL They work awesome, rubber on the bottom so they don't slide much and so you can put it on a wet parking lot or something. They work very well.

I have long hair and when I work on ANYTHING I ball it up and put it in my hat. I have rolled it up in the creeper wheels and would in a drill motor once so I hide it inside my hat. I am too old to crawl around on my back on a cold concrete floor. It's bad enough with a creeper! I have two creepers - neither one was bought at Harbor Freight so I can't speak to that.

You should get a Lisle one if you don't have it, that is the best that I have ever used. I have a good old wooden SnapOn one that I used for years, then got that Lisle and forgot about the SnapOn one!

I do have a Lisle - It is my newest one (15 years old?) and it is the one I goto first - it's a low profile creeper - that way if I fall off it I don't hurt myself too bad.
The other is a Snap-On metal framed creeper. I had to replace the foam in the headrest and reupholster it.
