I received a Reach It/Grab It Pick Stick for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.
I've seen (and used) many other Reacher/Grabber tools very similar to this one. However, unlike those other ones, this one is adjustable. You can have the grabber part horizontal or vertical. This is great because it means you don't have to contort your hand into an uncomfortable position to use it.
This works basically like the other Reacher/Grabber tools that I have used. It works fairly well, but the grip is a bit weak because of the soft silicone on the "fingers."
Hubby used it to get the Christmas lights down from the front porch, in hopes that he wouldn't have to drag the ladder out. It worked- somewhat- but the lights ended up getting hung up on the hooks, so he had to get the ladder out anyway.
to get the Christmas lights down.
Overall, I'd say it's a pretty good product, as long as you're not needing to do anything major. The silicone that's on the "fingers" keeps the grip pretty soft. I am pretty sure it'll be handy at Mardi Gras, when we're stuck behind the barricade and some of those throws don't quite make it over!
