The raptor reacher is a must have tool for anyone recovering from hip replacement surgery or has any lower back, hip bending problems.

I have had my right hip completly replaced and I still have problems with bending over to pick things up off the floor. The Raptor reaches is great for picking up just about anything. I use it all the time from picking up socks, my shoes, the dog chews and toys my dog and my roommates dog leave all over the house, I can pick up my hair ties if it falls on the floor. I even was able to pick up my deordant off of the floor when I accidently knocked it off my shelf. It did take a couple of tries because of the smooth round plastic sides, but I got it.

It is made of a strong solid plastic and is able to pick up items with some weight to it. I have had other reachers but either the little rubber suction pads kept unscrewing and falling off while using it or other small bolts/screws would come lose and I would end up missing parts. I threw my old one away once I bought the raptor reacher. It has a good length on it also.

The handle is also made with some holes so that you can place it on a hook to keep it within easy reach. The holes are perfect if you use the 3M hooks with the metal hook. I have one I keep in my bedroom all the time and I currently saving up to buy one to keep in my car and one at work also. This is worth your money to buy one. This should be the one they should have people use when they are physical rehap learning how to cope with a hip replacement.

I've had a lot of different reacher/grabbers, but I'm afraid the other reviewers haven't had this experience. This reacher is a huge disappointment. I'm returning it to Amazon tomorrow. (And I usually don't return things unless they're REALLY dismal.)

The handle design attracted me, but when you open or close it, it clatters and binds like something that you'd buy at a dollar store.

Worse, the plastic jaws let jars or cans slip from its grip. The manufacturer could have added strips of rubber or other gripping surfaces for pennies and made it immeasurably better. I could probably do it myself, but I shouldn't have to fix design defects.

In the same shipment from Amazon, I got a Dura-Med 32-inch Aluminum Reacher, which is the best grabber I've had yet. It's exquisitely designed, and even has a magnetic tip. Plus it was $3 cheaper.

I mainly got this to keep in the laundry room to retrieve things dropped alongside the washer or dryer (or behind it) but have found it useful for other things as well, especially when back pain tunes up. It is lightweight, easy to use, and easy to store since it will hang from a doorknob. A big plus for my arthritic fingers is that only a gentle squeeze on the handle is necessary.

We installed a strip of the lacy looking vinyl shelf liner inside the pinch fingers with double sided tape. Now this will grip and pick up nearly anything. It's lightweight and easy to use even for arthritic hands, unlike some of these devices. Built so that only one half of the handgrip needs to be squeezed, another feature that is easier for hands/fingers that are hurting or weak.

If you only need to get a tissue from a box, this could possibly work (probably not though). The jaws are just hard plastic, don't pick up anything - can't grip things at all. Everything slides right out of them. Don't bother with it...

It works. Can't expect more for the price. It fits my hand nicely and the size is just right to take to the grocery store. The parts are hollow plastic and not as sturdy as some other reachers I have had. I
