Reachers and Grabbers ~ Independent Living Aids

A variety of reachers and grabbers, all reasonably priced, all designed for picking up objects otherwise unattainable for limited mobility.

Let me share with you what I’ve learned and provide a link for you to purchase one of your own or to give as a gift for a loved one in need.

Use the E-Z Reacher to grasp items out of reach without twisting your wrist. With the optional SAF-T-LOK (with on/off lever) feature, you don’t even need to maintain your grasp on the trigger to keep the object gripped!
