Our heavy-duty The EZ Reacher is not just used as litter pick up tools for cities, road departments and volunteer groups! We hear of interesting personal uses for an EZ Reacher in addition to picking up sticks and debris in the yard. Some people keep a reacher as a grabber 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.
