  1. Frank Budd

    I have just been in hospital and its been a blessing to have had this with me, My wife has always used these and I cannot tell you how jolly useful this has been during my stay as I have been unable to move

  2. John Hoerner

    I have used this for years. It is cleverly made and does a great job. Very well priced as well.

  3. Helen

    A very good tool

  4. Glenn Parker

    An extremely useful tool that is well made.

  5. Alan

    Jaws could be “grippier” but mostly OK. Quite long, so I am using the Handi-Grip MINI much more

  6. Pete Singleton

    It reaches, it grabs (everything but toothpicks, so far!), it has hooks for pulling things. The magnet tip is occasionally useful even though it’s a bit feeble. The choice of lengths is important (ask me how I know?)

  7. Mrs.Janet Phillips

    A little shorter than I expected but ok

  8. Mrs D E Barnes

    A really useful item, will be of great assistance to me.

  9. John DRAY

    Great product! Got a short one already….now got a long one!
    Bit more expensive than some on-line…but ‘you get what you pay for’ here!
    Good service from Seller.

  10. Tony Sayer

    Works very well a great help!

  27. Andrew

    Exactly as needed.

  28. David

    Very useful tool for reaching things down from shelves and picking things up from the floor, with useful magnetic tip. Helps with getting dressed too, pulling up trousers and underwear. I have two of these and one older version in various parts of the house. This new version has narrower jaws than the old version, hence I have only given it 4 stars.

  29. John

    Jolly useful I’m wheelchair bound so picking things up is made easy

  30. Anthea Payne

    It fits on my overnight bag


    It does all it’s supposed to do and does it well – but it would be even better if it doubled up as a walking stick.

  32. Mr Ian B Grant

  33. Geoff Adams

  46. Daphne James – Trustpilot

    I have 4 of them around the house. They are excellent. I would recommend them to anyone.

  47. Christopher Rees – Trustpilot

    Pleasantly light and well made. It picks up reliably both 8cm and 2mm objects, and the magnetic end finds things that one wasn’t even looking for. Less able to hang onto objects over 500g., but wasn’t bought for that! Mine is 7 years old and as good as new; bought another for a disabled friend.

    This grabber is extra long very good value really useful after surgery.

  68. Ronald Webster

    I obtained my first “Helping Hand” after my first hip replacement in 2003 and two more after subsequent operations. They have been in constant use since then and all three remain in strategic positions throughout our house!
    Thank you so much for the continued assistance to my daily routine.

  69. Mrs Porter

    I use the handy magnet in my Classic Pro to pick up staples I drop, this is so handy and it saves me stepping on them when walking round in socks.

  70. Mrs Di Wright – Trustpilot

    This is my second grabber and I wouldn’t be without them! It’s incredibly useful for so many tasks when you’ve had a hip replacement from picking up things you inevitably drop or pulling socks up. Even afterwards it has many uses.

  71. Norma Rich – Trustpilot

    Found my Helping Hand “Classic Pro” grabber so useful after surgery so bought 2 more to have one in the bathroom, bedroom and sitting room!

  72. Claire – Trustpilot

    Prompt delivery of an excellent product – I have 5 of these sticks (different rooms in the house) and always keep a collapsible version for my car and holidays.

  73. jamann – Ama

    Glad I forked out for the more expensive one. Worth paying more to get better quality.

  74. jamann – Amazon Customer

    Glad I forked out for the more expensive one. Worth paying more to get better quality.

  75. ermintrade – Amazon Customer

    I bought this for after my hip replacement op. It is an excellent piece of kit, well designed and constructed. It is invaluable in helping me get dressed.

  76. Mr Hutchinson – Trustpilot

    great item helps me with many jobs thank you

  77. Groovy granny – Amazon Customer

    Liked the hook that you can hang on to door handles etc . Anything I drop can easily be picked up without bending, or used to get things I can’t reach up high. Great piece of equipment, you can also use to pick up litter dropped in the front garden .

  78. M. Lloyd – Amazon Customer

    Some brands can be a little too lightweight to get a grip. This seems to have the right balance

  79. Bumblebee – Amazon Customer

    We have purchased these type of helping hand for a while now and we always come back to this brand, sturdy, lightweight, easy to grip and a magnet at the end to pick up small items (in my mummy’s case Hair Grips!) My mother has carpal tunnel in her hands along with osteoarthritis and osteoporosis and she struggles with anything where hand use is required. Being wheelchair bound this tool is a life safer for her. She’s dropped spoons, small cooking utensils, food items and lots more but this small gadget has and continues to assist her.

  80. Anne O’ Farrell – Trustpilot

    Excellent Product

  81. Roy McAdam – Trustpilot

    Easy to pick up items

  82. Lou – Amazon Customer

    This grabber is superb. It’s claws are brilliant and I even managed to pick up a lettuce leaf that I’d dropped. It’s lightweight and an easy mechanism to use. Highly recommend

  83. Annie

    Excellent, as always. Couldn’t live without this product. Would definitely recommend this product and this company.

  84. Jane – Trustpilot

    Great item, massive help to elderly mother in law.

  85. Willie mac – Amazon Customer

    Nice soft touch, simple and easy to use, the hooked trigger makes it ideal for hanging on a door handle and the supplied bracket is ideal for holding it on to 15mm thick furniture example I attach one of mine to a console table and the addition of a magnet makes it handy for picking up small metal articles.

  86. Richard Scratcher – Amazon Customer

    If you need a well made, lightweight helping hand this is the grabber to get.. I have several of these dotted around the house and after trying other makes which have all let me down I will now only buy these as they are robust and last.
    A bit of a hiccup on delivery but the merchant replied promptly to my email and the rest of the order arrived quickly. A very useful gadget that saves a lot of bending down.

  87. Ann Cecilia – Amazon Customer

    You think you do not need one of these sticks. Until you get one. I cannot bend to pick up items on the floor. This beauty, picks up the smallest item, from discarded thread, sewing pins, and clothing. Just fabulous, going to get another for another room in the house. Very good quality. So pleased I bought this.

  88. M Millar

    The product is to be a gift

  89. Mr Turner

    This gripper has made an enormous difference – everything falls on the floor – now easily retrieved!

  90. Pamela Turner

    Made life much better, Thank you!!

  91. Keith Bishop

    This grabber has helped me a lot, I have a spinal condition, so anything I drop keys, clothes food etc. I pick up myself even in the shops. A well thought out aid. Useful magnet and stronger than most on the market

  92. Elaine – Amazon Customer

    Just had major hip operation. Never had to use one of these before. This gripper helps me with everything from dressing to picking things up.
    Strange at first but now it’s so easy to use. It has become my friend.

  93. John A

    My Back isn’t as sore anymore from the bending over

  94. Eric Holford – Trustpilot

    “These are the gold standard of grabbers/reachers. They are strong, well made and last a good number of years.
    There are things to bear in mind:
    1. If you cant grab your grabber, you cant grab anything with it. Buy several and place them strategically around your home/workplace. This may seem extravagant, but they do wear out, and wearing several slowly will make them all last longer than one dragged around with you. I currently have at least 10 in service.
    2. They do fail eventually, so always keep a spare
    3. The folding version works well, for a folding version, but not as well as the fixed ones. Only buy folding ones where you need them (E.g. for travel, in the door pocket of your car.
    4. Once the rubber tips wear out, and they will, the cease to work efficiently. Don’t wait for your most used ones to fail, but swap a high use one for one used only occasionally.
    5. No one is paying me to say this, but over 17 years of using all makes and types as essential everyday items has convinced me that these are the very best grabbers available today. Don’t was money on other types, even from here, just buy a bundle of these and use them. They are life changers!”

  95. R A Murdoch

    This product significantly saves me backache and I no longer need to bend. These are great I have numerous reachers around the house

  174. Mrs Smith

    I have had 2 of my “Helping hands” (reachers) for over 20 years and they are still going strong, I have been disabled since 1999 and I think these are wonderful. I cannot bend much or reach the floor and I would be lost without them. I have one for every room and would recommend them to everyone.

  175. Doreen Curran

    I ordered another grabber for upstairs, Its very inconvenient to carry it around as I use a stair lift to get upstairs. This will help me out a great deal!

  176. Mr T W Dudgeon

    I now don’t need to call family to pick things up for me now!

  177. Mr Brayshaw

    I am able to pick bits up easily

  179. Anthea

  180. Patrick

  184. Ms Pope

    This has given me the ability to pick up /reach things as I am unable to bend down

  185. A Campbell

    The biggest impact for me using this product is that it makes me happy not to have pain when bending down to pick up things from the floor

  186. H.J.Hopkins

    I’ve had a reacher for some time and it aids my mobility!

  187. Mrs Cleasby

    I have limited mobility and balance, This is like having an extra arm.

  188. Julia Evans

    This has helped my 92 year old mother by not bending down as she has a chronic back condition. Your staff have excellent telephone manners, patience and knowledge.

  189. Nancy Martel

    Good product which makes me less dependant on others

  190. Mr W James

    The Reacher is the best on I have used. It really helps that the handles are yellow as my eye sight is very poor and this stands out in a darker room!

  191. Julie Martin

    I have one of these in my sitting room, bedroom and kitchen, also a folding one which goes on holidays.
    Poor mobility due to brain tumour and orthopaedic surgery, not allowed to reach to floor. Used to pick up items I am forever dropping, reaches places I couldn’t, also very helpful for dressing assistance.
    In addition, excellent company, pleasant helpful staff and swift delivery even at this crisis (virus) time.
    Highly recommended.

  192. Peter Hume

    I first saw one at a corner shop where the elderly man used it to get a packet down for a client
    Then my father bought one and lots of fun showing me all the tricks he could do with “The Classic”. I was impressed

    When he died, I asked if could have dad’s, and I kept it in my workshop where I used it 2-3 times a week as my “arm extension”.

    2 days ago I had a double hernia operation and felt like in painful hell when I came home.
    I knew what to do. I sent my son to get it from my workshop.

    So not only have I picked up all kinds of things (Even my smartphone that I had dropped). I just used it, like a walking stick, to get out of bed ALL ALONE. What a victory !

    What a great product !

  193. Mr F Robinson

    I have had a knee operation recently and the ‘grab stick’ has been perfect – I can’t bend down at the moment so it has helped me pick up items I drop on the floor.

    My sister is a wheelchair user and she has a Reacher in every room – very clever

  194. Mrs Vicky Hockett

    So useful, wouldn’t be able to function without it. Recently had a hip operation and cannot bend down at all, I use it for putting and pulling my socks on. It’s a fantastic tool!

  195. Mr G Townsend

    Would like to have a Reacher in each room, therefore I don’t have to carry them around with me and trip over them – they are fantastic, I wouldn’t be without them

  196. Brynn Sharkey

    I am ex military, I have extensive damage to my leg and I cannot bend down. These Reacher’s are fantastic! They don’t look cheap either!

  197. Mrs Jill McBeath

    I have had a hip operation and I find it easier to have 2 Reachers, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs, saves me carrying them backwards and forwards

  198. Mrs Pamela Neville

    I have one in every room – it saves me going from one room to another carrying round my Reacher

  199. Mrs Patricia Hunt

    I’m using my mothers old Reacher to help with recover after a fall. She had it for over 20 years, it’s still going strong!

  200. Paul Kennedy

    Having used my new Classic Pro over the past few weeks I can honestly say it is as good if not better than the old Classic. The Gripcert Jaw UPGRADE certainty is an improvement as it appears to be more rigid and less incline to move sideways under downward pressure, I found the new dressing post another useful item as it allows items to be hooked or pulled towards you without having to use the trigger, which maybe very helpful for those whose trigger fingers are not as strong as others.

    The Classic Pro provides me with an invaluable every day tool that is a help in a hundred different ways and situations, and its so easy to use. Having to use a walking frame my Classic Pro is conveniently clipped to my frame and ready for instant use when ever needed. My life without my “grabber” would just be a series of difficulties in the bending and reaching of the different objects I need throughout the day.

    Once you you have one you will wonder just how you managed without one, I couldn’t be without mine now.

  237. Wendy Travis

They are head and shoulders above other cheaper ones on the market. I briefly used another one when I came out of hospital and it wasn’t a patch on the helping Hands!

  259. Doreen Fountain

    I wouldn’t be without my Reacher’s, Me and my husband both have mobility issues. We use them for a variety of things, Including feeding the cat, I can put the plate down on the floor with ease!

  268. Edna Brown

    As a result of a hip replacement surgery I purchased your Classic Reacher at one of our local hospitals.

    The reason I am writing is to congratulate you on such a fine, fine product. It gives me great joy to use it as it is designed so well.

    You have thought of everything…. The magnet, the soft material that helps with pick-up…everything. Not only is it so useful, but so well made. It invites me to feel well cared for. It invites me to delight in the fact that some people take pride in work well done.

    I wish I could personally thank each person involved in this product as it gives me something else to be thankful for as I go through the process of recovery.

  269. Mrs J Edwards

    I have had the Classic PRO Reacher for a number of years, my favourite use is picking up my tablets when I drop them on the floor. I also use it to help me put my shoes on too.

  273. Gillian Kriehn

    This is just what I needed to help me reach a bit further in the garden and keep it tidy while my feet were wrapped in bandages after surgery (it’s not easy to keep me out of the garden). It also is invaluable for those items dropped and just out of reach indoors. Good value for money.

  274. Amazon Customer

  276. Stephen Bowers – Amazon Customer

  277. Belle – Amazon Customer

    Arrived really fast. I have used these since 2014 and I’m sure if I treated them better they would last as long as my first one from the hospital did. I pick up too heavy items but it’s so handy.
    Somehow I managed to order the wrong size this time and the 32 Inc is massive. Seriously stupid I should have checked my previous orders but I got the 2 for such a good price.

  278. Mr L Gurney – Amazon Customer

    Idea if you can’t bend. Or reach on top of cupboards.

  279. Helen Renton – Amazon Customer

    It is so practical and the clip makes it very portable and less likely to drop it. It can pick everything I have tried to pick up.

  280. CJ – Amazon Customer

    I bought these because they have a fingertip pickup.A lot of these things have a pickup thats like two bananas back-to-back and you can’t get the tiny things that drop under the table for instance.
    These are great for that and for all the usual other stuff.
    Hiwever,I reached up to get down a four pack of kitchen roll and the shaft felt like it was about to buckle or was at least under too much strain…I wouldn’t feel happy using it for a 1ltr bottle or a tin bigger than yr average can of beans.
    Maybe the manufacturers can reassure me on this?

  281. E Shannon

    I had a total hip replacement 3 days ago and I am so happy to have prepared myself with some helpful items such as this grabber. This is a must-have. It clicks on to my crutches, so it is always there, when I need it and it is strong enough to fill and empty the washing machine so I don’t bend so much. Worth every penny.

  299. E. J. R.

    This is the third one I’ve bought now – two for myself and one for my father. I’ve had one for over 1 year and it’s still going strong. I keep one up in my bedroom and the other downstairs. I use them every day and would be lost without them. Fantastic if you’ve got arthritis like I have and if you’re vertically challenged, like I am.

  303. S Powell – Trustpilot

    I use my grabber on a hotel let alone daily basis, it helps me dress as well as picking things up & reaching for things.

  331. S Goustas

    Excellent product.
