Gripcert et al

5 out of 5 stars

Charlie has practically covered it all in his review, but a couple more points to consider:
This, like lots of items nowadays is available under many brands and names, Gripcert is also the one I have, and it was a while before I realised that the plastic component in the middle attached by cable tie is actually a holding bracket, so that you can mount the Gripcert wherever suits you best.
There is also a small protusion at the "Jaws" end that you can use to hang it up just about anywhere.
It is also a great way to get youngsters to tidy their lego etc away!
I bet they would love one for Christmas.
All in all a well made piece of kit and can be a God send to the less nimble.

No problems so far and feels sufficiently sturdy.

Just knowing it is there if you need it is worth the price.

Getting To Grips

5 out of 5 stars

A nifty little gadget picks up practically anything according to size obviously it can also pick up paper and pins with the magnet attachment and any bits around the house.
Ideal for anyone who finds bending down awkward or impossible.
This is such a help. I purchased it so that I didn't have to bend during the healing process of a knee replacement operation. I pick up tiny stuff, single pieces of paper, pens reading glasses, my shoes etc. I dropped a can of soup out of the cupboard, picked it up without a problem, pull stuff out from under the sink or back of cupboards, I dropped pegs out in garden easy to pick up from the grass. It’s a great helping hand for getting stuff dropped back of sofa, under table or bed. I think it’s a must have gadget for anyone recovering from an operation or with mobility needs, You wont be disappointed if you get one.

You can get them in any mobility shop , amazon and ebay.

I have had this product a few years and still going strong. I lost my magnet on the end but only because the dog chewed it.

Its certainly value for money sturdy and well made.
