An Useful Grabbing Tool for Garage area Technicians
An extended reach pickup tool is a handy tool to have at an auto-garage. I've been working as a garage technician for over eight years now, and of late, the owner of the garage decided to equip us all with a Grappler extended reach pickup tool. There are three of them, all Industrial Grade Grapplers featuring no plastic parts and of varying sizes, namely 40", 72", and 96" in length. As simple as the make is, Grapplers are smart, efficient grabbing tools that we technicians rely on to help us with our daily tasks.

Accessing the Top Shelf
This is probably the most obvious task we use the Grappler extended reach tool to accomplish. Ladders are simply not the right choice to reach for things stored at the top shelf. Each time you need something off the top shelf, you need to pull the ladder, position it properly, climb up and reach for things, and then promptly put it back again.

No, this is just very time-consuming. Instead, with the 96" Grappler, we simply reach for auto-parts and accessories stored at the top shelf and then place the Grappler leaning against the wall. And unlike other grabbing tools in the market, the Grappler performs outstandingly when it comes to gripping onto heavier objects. With an efficient trigger mechanism that delivers a squeezing force of upto 117 pounds, you won't be dropping the things you pickup unless you release the trigger.

Retrieving Fallen Objects
I've often faced trouble retrieving bolts and screws that fell under the bonnet or beneath the vehicle. With the 40" Grappler, I can now simply reach for the dropped items without taking burns from hot engines and without needing to crawl under the vehicle to retrieve a fallen object.

Cleaning Up the Work Area
After a long day's work, it is one of the most tedious and boring tasks to clean up the area of stray bolts, random mechanical litter, and worn out parts. Before the Grappler, we used to pick them up using our bare hands, constantly bending over to pick up trash and litter off the floor. But with the 72" Grappler, all we need to do is point the Grappler at the target, squeeze the trigger and grab the litter to be disposed off.

Trash Pickup Tools
A good way to collect trash is by attaching a Handy Bag Ringer to a 30-gallon trash bag to get an instant portable solution and carry the bag along, to while you clear the area of litter using the Grappler extended reach pickup tool. Alternatively, you can also use the Handler to carry along a 5-gallon bucket to collect the used/worn-out bolts and screws for recycling. Use these along with the Grappler to help save a lot of time and energy, and to cut down on extra personnel needed to carry the trash bag or the bucket for you.
Available in many sizes, and in both, standard as well as Industrial Grade versions, Grappler extended reach pickup tools are manufactured within the US, and they all come with a Lifetime Warranty. Visit their official website to know more about their products and to place orders.
