Who makes the best CREEPER?

I use my creeper often, but you know the old saying "once bitten, twice shy"? I have a Craftsman that is downright dangerous and should be recalled. If you rest your arm on the side rail (between the frame and padding) while moving, your arm can get pinched resulting it a big bruise like in the attached pic and a LOT of pain. This has happened to me at least three times, so time for a new creeper.
Anyway, who do you think makes the best creeper?
Thanks,
Ken

The BEST and CHEAPEST creeper i found is the one from Harbor Freight toOLS
It keeps ^^ that from happening, and has place to put tools

That was what I was looking at, one of them anyway. I found it HERE on Amazon, it has great reviews.
Off the subject a little, but have you guys seen THIS?

Looks kind of cool, but it runs on compressed air and I bet it is REALLY loud.

I'd say the dog bones are the best. Big wheels and comfy.

I had 2 of the craftsman creepers neither one lasted so I went to the harbor freight creeper they're cheap as well but will handle a little more weight I'm on my second one with the coupon they're under 20$ or so. My plan was to get a dog bone we have them at work and they're stout have good wheels etc. This year I was given a omega Z creeper for my birthday, guess she was sick of me breaking creepers. The thing is awesome super stout and it folds into a stool.

Dog bone is what I use. I've had those other shitty ones. Not worth it

my friend has the dog bone one. he once panicked at a surprise oil leak and pushed it under to protect the floor. big mistake..hahah
