If you are concerned about tree damage, all the fruit picker does is let you place two of the prongs above a piece of fruit so it falls into the padded basket when you pull on the fruit. You are at no more risk of damaging a tree than you would be pulling off a piece of fruit by hand, except there's no option to hold the branch in place while pulling the fruit.
Similar fruit pickers in stores are generally more expensive or give you a shorter pole or flimsier basket. You can feel comfortable that this ranks among the better ones of its design and makes sense if the price is right for you.
Update: After a few uses the tine in the center of the basket broke off. Next to go was the glue that held the plastic locking nut in place on the lower section of the fiberglass handle. I ordered a replacement basket and have glued the nut back on the handle with Loctite brand "Epoxy Plastic Bonder" (expensive stuff). We'll see if this holds... This 25 dollar fruit picker has now cost me over 40 bucks. Obviously I'm not very happy with this product and have reduced my rating from four stars to one.
I find the picker too heavy and the handling is not as easy as one would like. My grandfather had a fruit picker with a cloth bag and wood pole that was so light and agile that a child could hold it at the very end of the pole. I was surprised how heavy this one is when I took if out of the box. You need to hold it with the hands at least 3 feet apart to have enough leverage.
My daughter struggled quite a bit with this. It works ok, but I am not entirely impressed.
Some mentioned the twist-lock 'sleeve' to hold the pole extended split, so for grins i wrapped it in gorilla tape to help take the strain. (Leave ~3" of the top pole inside the bottom pole, then twist-lock it, to distribute the stress better. Or when closing it, don't let the metal basket slam into the plastic twist-lock 'sleeve' when it closes.) A bronze or s/s twist-lock sleeve would of course be stronger, but a pole like that is many more dollars.
Edit: I didn't really wrap the twist-lock sleeve in Gorilla tape. And the sleeve took the strain during this picking season no problem.
I cannot wait for peach season to arrive, this nifty thingie will allow me to reach to the top of a mid size tree without causing damage and, with the absence of ripe peaches glowing in the sun, prevent less considerate people to break the tree's top off again as they have done in the past.
With a bit of adjustment such as meshing in the basket I am positive that I can also use it to pick grapes off vines that can't be reached otherwise. Twelve feet is a lot of reach, highly recommended!
