Product Information

DOT Reacher ™ Extra-strong Pick-up Tools- Non-locking

Don't be fooled by less-expensive lightweight imitations

  • Quickly clean up highways, golf courses, parks, beaches and lawns
  • Retrieve objects from hard-to-reach places
  • Available in six different lengths

While the lifting ability of many other pickup tools has been lessened because of lighter construction, the DOT Reacher ™ has maintained the same high lifting capacity because quality has not been compromised. Quickly clean up highways, golf courses, parks, beaches and lawns. Also use to retrieve objects from hard-to-reach places like high shelves or for sanitary maintenance cleanup in restrooms. Lightweight aluminum shaft is available in six different lengths and has rubber pick-up grippers that grasp objects as small as a dime or as heavy as a 5-lb. brick. Pistol-grip handle is made of impact-resistant ABS plastic. DOT Reacher tools are non-locking. Handle is included in the length. Imported. Choose length from selection box above.

NOTE: The handle is included in the length.

    For someone who had major back surgery, this is a must have item. I can now do jobs otherwise I couldn't do because of the bending over to pick up items. I have tried other pick up tools, but none compare to this one. It has a very strong grip and doesn't drop items once you latch onto them. I am going to purchase several more in different lengths to fit any job that I can think of. Now the first thing I reach for after getting out of bed is, my glasses then my pick up tool. Very well built and very well priced for the quality.

    The weight and length are great. Excellent overall construction.

    However, the jaw springs are weak. I don't see why they need to be there at all. The strength of your grip ought to be the only limiting factor. You can't keep hold of anything even slightly heavy. I tested it by lifting a mason jar from a high shelf. It dropped it. Wouldn't lift it. Springs too weak.

        Comments about DOT Reacher Extra-strong Pick-up Tools- Non-locking:

        This is the most solidly built grabber on the market and still very light weight. The company has an excellent customer service department. I have purchased other items from Gemplers and have never been disappointed.

              Comments about DOT Reacher Extra-strong Pick-up Tools- Non-locking:

              I love this product. I have arthritis and it helps me reach leaves underneath my shrubs and pick up things without repetitive bending. There are Lyme ticks in our area and this tool reduces my risk.

                  Comments about DOT Reacher Extra-strong Pick-up Tools- Non-locking:

                  The handle is too flimsy for the length. It needs a better handle. Picking up any item more than a small piece of paper will break the handle. Great length.
