Sarah Skelton

SKELTON, Sarah, English, b-1979. At the age of 14 she was a co-partner (with STATON) in designing a scissors-type jack for cars (1993). The driver runs the vehicle onto the jack and can feel when it is properly positioned. The framework is then clamped and the jack part removed - making room for the mechanic to work. Collapse is impossible because of security locks. This device won awards in 1993, Sarah looks set for a good career in engineering.
