Our heavy-duty reachers are not just popular litter pick-up tools for cities, road departments and volunteer groups! We hear of interesting personal uses for EZ Reachers in addition to picking up sticks and debris in the yard. Some people keep a reacher in their garage just to reach spray paint cans, WD-40, etc possibly on a rather inaccessable shelf. Elderly and handicapped folks use a reacher as a great tool for picking up the newspaper and/or reaching anything dropped on the floor. Our lightweight and folding reacher will travel in a suitcase or easily ride alond in a wheelchair. One guy told us that a reacher helps extend his reach when cleaning out his gutters and another uses his long reacher to pick fruit from trees. We hope to share some of these interesting stories from time to time to give you more ideas of ways to use your reacher.
The original EZ Reacher is often called a "grabber", "nabber" or "pick up tool"! This tool has been around for over 35 years so don't confuse it with cheap imitations! It is still considered the most popular pick-up tool available due to its durable construction of non-rusting aluminum, spring stainless-steel mechanism and comfortable pistol-grip handle. The original manufacturer, Arcoa Corporation, was purchased by a sister company, ArcMate Manufacturing, in recent years. The rebranded product is still the same tool!
