It’s indeed a pain to come back home from a surgery and not be able to carry out the basic tasks. I can’t imagine how tedious it must have been for my daughter, although she kept telling me she didn’t mind the extra chores at all. However, I needed something to help me grab nearby objects, at least those falling just outside my reach, considering it’s a pain to try and move the wheelchair with an IV sticking out the back of my hand.

And so I asked my daughter to buy me a reaching tool. Within a week, I got the Grappler extended reach pickup tool delivered at my doorstep; and just a week later, I had already gained much of my independence back!

My first impression was that it’s amazingly light on the hand for a tool that features a solid and sturdy aluminum body. It functions on a simple trigger mechanism, and the trigger is placed comfortably close to the handle and is easy to squeeze, so it doesn’t hurt my fingers at all. Also, with a pair of strong picker jaws that grip onto the targeted object with a force of 17 pounds, I have had no issues of dropping anything that I pickup, unless I accidentally release the trigger. The picker jaws are designed with sharp features to boost dexterity, and believe me – you can even grab a toothpick with it!

For a short while after I got rid of the wheelchair, I still kept using the Grappler reaching tool for grabbing nearby objects, like the ashtray, or the TV remote, or magazines from the coffee table. After a month or so, when I gained all my strength back, I stopped using it and gave it to my daughter to help her with her daily chores. Today, she uses it in the kitchen to grab cans and cartons off the top shelves, for the most part. Occasionally, like once in three weeks or so, she uses it to assist with her lawn-keeping chores. I remember there was a time we discovered a snake creeping about in our garden, a situation I tackled easily by using the Grappler to pick it up from a safe distance, secure it in a jute bag, and let it go into the woods a couple miles from the last house in our block.

A True American Product
Grappler extended reach tools are one of the rare American-made products available in the market today. Apparently, when I looked up the internet, I came to know that it’s one of the bestselling products in the niche. Also, unlike other reaching tools in the market, Grapplers come with a lifetime warranty! So, the extra few bucks you may have to spend to purchase a Grappler is definitely worth spending. Use it for 10 years and you can still get it repaired or replaced for free by shipping the damaged Grappler back to the company address and they’d promptly do the needful for you.
