Reach It Grab It

I received the Reach It Grab It Reacher Grabber Pick Stick through a promotion. 

Product Info:
  • Strong grip
  • Non-slip jaws/grip
  • Sturdy 
  • Helps with those who cannot or do not want to bend to pick things up
  • Made with aluminium 

First thing I noticed about this product was that it's packaging wasn't the greatest. It arrived with the company's packaging and the grabber having ripped apart. There was no damage to the actual grabber, so all was well. Plus, how would you actually package a grabber without there being a large cost to it? 

The stick felt sturdy as did the button that helped work the grabber. It didn't feel like it'd break after several uses or if a child got a hold of it. 

The non-slip grippers or "jaws" worked nicely to pick things up. It was able to pick up a coin, but it was not able to pick up something as small as a tooth pick. The jaws are able to be rotate to the direction or angle to reach items with. Just pull on the head to rotate it.
 (Note: the non-slip grippers are floppy or loose at the sides, so beware of pets who are chewers.) 
One thing I miss with this grabber stick is the locking mechanism that others have. My parents' have one that's able to lock into a certain position that makes it easier to store.
