The Reach it Grab it – reacher grabber pick stick is a Must-Have!


Finding it hard to reach things up high? I know that sometimes I have this problem but not anymore! The Reach it Grab it – reacher grabber pick stick is very useful! It’s easy to use for clean up and can pick up even very small things. I like that it  has a strong grip with and non-slip jaws. My husband who has been dealing with knee pain, is also finding it helpful! This is also great for both kids and adults. I really like this Grabber because it helps reach things that are up high and even my son can use it! Great for all ages..young and old. It also securely grabs the item so no worry about dropping it. I find it helpful in the Kitchen to reach high places too.
