I would like to introduce you to one of my favourite little gadgets, my Grabby Thingie:
Officially, it’s a 36″ pick-up & reach tool.
I got this wonderful tool from Donna and Ken, whose RV should have really been named Ali Baba’s Cave.
As you can see, there is a handle at one end and a gripper at the other. You just squeeze the handle and the gripper closes to grab whatever you need to fetch that is beyond arm’s reach.
This gripper is very strong. I have actually used it to pick up heavy tools like my hammer and drill from the main floor while working in the loft. The warning sticker that says to wear goggles while using it (LOL) puts its capacity is 2lbs. It also has teeth that actually grab the item.
I mostly use the gripper to grab things deep in my pass-through compartments so that I don’t have to empty everything out and then crawl in.
Donna claimed not have much use for it, so I don’t feel too guilty about having accepted the gift since I use it several times a week. 🙂Share on Facebook
