Looking for the name of a tool

I once saw an advertisement here by a member who had a device for leaning a vehicle on its side.

There's something like this with a brand name similar to "Liqui-kippi " in Europe, but I'm looking for a version that comes out of Tennessee or Kentucky.

This version attaches connectors to the lug nuts and uses a device like an engine hoist/cherry picker to lift a frame which is holding the vehicle until the vehicle is almost 180 degrees on its side.

Does anyone know the name of this device? It would be perfect for work on the chassis and underbody of a vehicle.

Thanks

We are not as formal as those across the pond. In the US simply Auto Rotisserie

The version that connects to an engine hoist is called a "Easy Tilter"

I don't know the name of the one you want but perhaps the keywords "turner", "flipper" or "roller" will help?

Perhaps a "car spatula"?

Oh heck, why fool around with any of that fancy stuff? Just go down to the local hangout, find a couple of teenagers and tell them you want to see how sharply your car will turn. Hand them the keys and voila'. 10 minutes or less, you'll have the car on its side. Of course, it might be side, top, side, bottom, side before it comes to rest but look at the money you'll save!
