The heavy-duty EZ Reacher is not just used as a litter pick up tool 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 an EZ Reacher as a grabber in their garage just to reach spray paint cans, WD-40, etc. or anything on a rather inaccessable shelf. Elderly and handicapped folks use a reacher/grabber as a tool for picking up the newspaper or reaching anything dropped on the floor. Our lightweight and folding reacher will travel in a suitcase or easily ride along in a wheelchair. You can pick up yard sticks and/or pine cones or even use a longer reacher to pick fruit from trees. One customer even uses her EZ Reacher to pick up critters her cat seems to bring home for her! The uses are endless and we hope to share more of these interesting stories from time to time to give you more ideas of ways to use your reacher.
