  7. Kathleen Boyle

    I was so delighted to get the “HELPING HANDS” I had one about 14 years ago that has just give way. I was told you weren’t making them anymore so I get a different one and it was far inferior

    A reliable gadget with a long reach and the bonus of a free gift

  10. Wendy Travis

    This grabber has been a absoulute lifeline for me over the years, I have had this for 11 years and it has been amazing. I don’t know what I would do without it. I have brought cheaper versions in the past but they are awful compared to yours.

  11. A Mogridge

    Makes bending down to pick items up unnecessary

  12. Mrs Cleasby

    Excellent Product. You should play David Bowie song ‘We could be be Hero’s because you are

    I don’t have to bend to pick things up, Having a magnet at the end of the device is a great idea.

  18. D Matty

    I ordered two Classic PRO Reacher’s one 32 inches and a 26 inch.

    Speedy delivery within 24 hours, excellent price, product and delivery service

  21. Viliana Rancheva

    It is useful if you have trouble reaching to pick stuff off the floor. But it isn’t very useful for what I needed it, ie to help me with doing and undoing my boot straps.

  22. Irene Rice

    There’s no struggling now when reaching and bending

  23. Thomas McIntyre

    Helps me pick up items from the floor – great

    Picking up my dogs toys to throw it for him without having to bend down! Its great!

  26. Jim Wood

    I recently purchased my second Classic Pro reacher following my recent hip surgery. I had lost the first.

    I cannot recommend either the product or the service from The Helping Hand Company highly enough.

    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.

  74. Robert

    I have had my grabber for 10 years or more and use it to pick up lightweight items and small logs for my fire. I use this everyday without fail and have one in every room as I am paraplegic. 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!

  83. Mrs Poplak

    Since 1976 I have only needed to use 2 classic pro grabbers, They are wonderful. In the last 5 years I have become totally reliant on them

  84. 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.

  85. Patrick

    I have MS and I am a wheelchair user, I need a Reacher in every room for when i drop items onto the floor. I can also attache my Reacher to my wheelchair using the stick clip.

  86. Mr Prior

    I am absolutely lost without my Reacher! its helps me to dress with the dressing post.

  89. Mrs Drinkwater

    Its the most invaluable piece of equipment in my life – this is stationed in my bathroom for ease.

  90. 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! We love the Helping Hand Company because there is always someone willing to help us when we need them replacing.

  91. 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!

  92. 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 !

  93. 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!

  94. Mrs Pamela Neville

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

  95. Olive Frost

    I love the Classic PRO – I use the magnet for picking up screws and needles

  96. 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.

  97. 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

  98. 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!

  99. 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

  100. 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!

  101. Anthony Mitchell

    I would like a Grabber for every room as they are darn useful!

  102. Mr K Thacker

    Worn it out, marvellous thing

  103. 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

  104. Jan Fuller

    I would not be able to cope without my helping hands I now have three! Not only for picking items up off the floor but getting my washing out of the machine and other essential tasks.

  105. 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.

  106. 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.

  107. 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.
