    After seeing the first one, I see that it would be a waste of time looking at the rest. I bet the Indy racers would fight to get a fast efficient jack like that. :(

    Well, I kind of fast forwarded through after the first one, nothing practical that I could see.

    The folding wheel chock was cool. I would not trust flat metal too much to not slide on concrete though.

    OMG...

    Wile E Coyote got better tools from ACME.

    They were demonstrated by adults but look like they designed by a clever group of second graders during recess. :crazy:

    the ONLY one that caught my eye.....to give me an idea was the tire hanging STEP.. Gives me an idea to make a bigger/taller one for my truck. With 6" of lift and 35" tires ...leaning over the fender to get to stuff is a bit problematic. Even being 6"1" and good wingspan....still find myself kneeling on top of the radiator support to get to stuff...

    I could see many folks using the drive up lift at 3:50 on the oil pan or transmission.
