[Sca-cooks] long reach grabber

This looks like what we use for rubbish sticks.  It does work, is not that
wide, or that strong.  I would not use it to get heavy stuff down, it may
work, or you may have a big clean up.  We don't expect it to even last more
than a few months use, but it's cheap.  It also requires a reasonable
strength on the pistol grip.  I would go to a proper gripper designed for
household use by people with reduced grip strength/dexterity.  Probably from
a disability support service or from medical company that sells to the
geriatric market.

<<<  I also have a grabber that I use not only to get things off of tall
shelves, but also up off the floor if my bending-over-parts are not working
so well that day.  My current grabber is on its last legs, and I will
definitely be getting a replacement soon.

Do you have another link for one similar to the one you like, either at this
store or another? When I use this link, I get bounced to an upper level,
presumably all their products, and I can't find any grabbers.

This "long reach grabber" sounds like something my aging mother could use.
(My wife has me and a stool if needed)
