Working Under a Vehicle
When you are crawling under a vehicle to maintain to repair something, it’s not always easy to be elevated on one of those wheeled dollies or “creepy crawlers”. Sometimes it’s just better to be down flat on the ground or the cold garage floor.
Next time you have to get down on the ground like that, try folding up several layers of cardboard. The cardboard acts as an insulator from the cold floor and gives you a pad of sorts to soften up that concrete or asphalt. It also allows you to slide under on the cardboard easier than if you were on the ground itself. Best of all it’s disposable and free. So keep a few slabs of cardboard around for the next time you have to get under your vehicle.
