  29. Edinburgh woman – Amazon Customer

    The grabber is making life so much easier. Had cataract op last week so not meant to bend down. It really helps to be able to pick up things I’ve dropped, reach things at a low level, put on switches otherwise out of reach and magnetic tip very useful.

  30. Gill – Amazon Customer

    Really useful for picking up things and pulling on clothes. Prefer the shorter length as the other one is a bit long for me and I’m 5’10”. Handy that it folds in half so can fit in bag when out and about.

  31. MRS M BROWN – Amazon Customer

    I have just had spinal surgery and am not allowed to bend or twist and this grabber has been an absolute godsend! I can lift tiny things and larger things with it and it has allowed me to be more independent. I can even put the toilet seat down after male members of the household forget to do this. Highly recommend!

  51. Jen Hepworth

    My order arrived the following day! I already have two of the standard reachers and the folding one has made me even more independent. I am very impressed with the friendly and informative person who dealt with my telephone order

  52. Helen James

    I have had your picker upper before, I couldn’t do without these! The gentleman (Scott) who took my order was very kind, friendly and professional.

  53. Mr Chadwick

    I have 3 of the long folding Reacher’s, these help me with shopping and dressing as I am a wheelchair user.

  54. Ft. Chadwick

    The folding Reacher is the next best invention next to the wheelchair – I can take it wherever I go and pop it into my bag, It helps me reach things in the supermarket.

  55. Mr Windebank

    The Classic Pro folding reacher has been a massive help. I went shopping today and found the things I normally buy – some on the top shelf right at the back of the supermarket and others on the bottom. When you have non-stop vertigo that can be difficult but thanks to the grabber I could get what i needed easily and without dropping them!

  56. Barry

    I purchased a Classic Pro Folding Reacher, It was dispatched promptly and included a welcome additional free gift – nice touch.

  57. Ms Nagel

    I have a folding Reacher – It has changed my life, I take it shopping with me so I can reach items in the supermarket without asking for help.

  58. Mrs M Cawte

    I have MS and Stroke and have lost all movement down my right side. These Reachers help an awful lot – I would be lost without it.

  59. Mr Heard

    I ordered the folding helping hand as since January 2004 I’ve been using a non folding helping hand. The original one from 2004 is as good now as the day I bought it and would be without it, I use it to put on my underwear, my trousers, socks and any items I drop. The only thing I’ve had problems with through my own fault is I keep breaking the clips which I use to attach it to my walking sticks. I’ve now bought the folding version which will fit in a backpack or a suitcase so I’m never without my trusted friend.

    The company are very helpful, always very good value and postage is extremely quick, or you can buy any of their wonderful products from most hospital disabled shops. I highly recommend this company to all impaired people no mater your gender or size, and prices are very reasonable.

  60. Retail Customer

    Having the gripper helps stop the frustration of always dropping things and having to ask for someones help

  61. Ruth

    Bought for my 95 year old grandmother who had difficulty bending down to pick things up from the floor. This did the job perfectly and was easy for her to use. Squeeze mechanism was not Lightweight and easy to store. Does fold but my grandma preferred to have it open ready for use so has not used this functionality. Too stiff for her to use and grabber is a good size to pick up both smaller and larger items.

  62. Amazon Customer

    Used it to pick up things when i was pregnant. It helped me pick things up from the floor during my last trimester. It was really helpful.

  63. Gilly

    Bought this when my husband had a hip replacement. Since then it has proved to be useful all over the house.

  64. Claire – Trustpilot

    This is my 5th helping hand grabber ! Excellent product and the collapsible version is good for holidays or to keep in the car.

  65. Anthony Woodbridge – Trustpilot

    Useful when travelling

  66. Mr Beckwith

    This is on 3rd folding Classic Pro so useful I use it everywhere

  67. Customer

    Extremely helpful!

  68. M. E. Finch – Amazon Customer

    Needed something to help place the rolls of loft insulation, this works a treat. Sturdy and works a charm. Buy British, the country needs you.

  69. Mrs Prime

    I have relied on this product for several years, and have three scattered around the house plus one in the car. I find it invaluable to myself and my needs

  70. Jane Sturgeon

    Plastic grip doesn’t fit

  71. Leigh Cranmer

    Grabs anything – even use it when putting on shoes.

  72. Mrs Madeleine Freelove

    As I can no longer reach the floor, to pick things up, due to spinal surgery. My grabbers are vital to my daily life. They give me back my independence. And the Classic PRO Foldable Reacher Grabber is the best.
