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:

          The plastic trigger screw on the grabbers breaks easily and we have to replace the product quite a bit due to this issue. The rest of the mechanism works well; a more robust screw in this area would make the product much more durable.

          I use this to pick up leaves; I have two houses and usually bring it back and forth. Now I don't have to worry about forgetting it because I have one for each house.

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

            This is a great picker upper! We live on a lake in the woods of Northern Michigan and each time we get a blustery day, we have twigs and branches to pick up. Thanks to this lightweight and easy to use grabber, our task is made relatively painless. No more stooping down for each piece of debris. We just have a garden cart and our DOT Reacher. The job is no longer daunting. It's 'kind of' fun.

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

              We use the grabber to pick up twigs and small branches, as we clear our property. I bought the 32 inch model. It is quite strong, and will pick up heavy items. With a bit of practice, you can use it to "toss" sticks toward the brush pile or fire. The only negative is the way the rubber cups are attached. Rather than the machine screw, which will eventually tear out with heavy usage, I would like to see a bolt and nut that go through the entire rubberized cups.
