Our heavy-duty EZ Reachers are not just used as 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. 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 along in a wheelchair. Pick up yard sticks and pine cones or use a longer 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 40 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 and we are proud to say that we are one of the oldest and largest distributos!
The sensitive rubber cups will pick up a dime or a brick and last a long time and these are available for easy replacement if ever required.
You will commonly see our EZ Reacher tools being used along the highways as litter pick-up tools but the list of uses for our reachers is almost endless! EZ Reachers extend your reach for items on high shelves, under furnishings or in tight places such as behind a clothes dryer or even to pick-up sticks and debris in the yard! Murphy's Law says that when you drop something it's always going to go to the most inaccessible location!
