So much more than a back scratcher...
on December 15, 2014
This is a super handy little gadget to have around. Aside from the obvious back-scratching benefits, I've found a couple of other great uses for it. I wear knee-high boots and tights a lot in the winter. Before I got this fun little tool, I'd have take my boot off if I ever got an itch on my lower leg or ankle. Now I just use this to reach the itch and my boots can stay put. The tines on the little fork at the end are smooth and rounded, so they don't even snag my tights.
I also picked one up for a friend who had an arm cast. Anyone who's had a cast on knows how itchy they can get, and how impossible it can be to reach that itch to get relief. With this great little tool, he had no problems easing his discomfort.
My mother has one, too, (she got one after she saw mine). She told me she even uses the telescoping feature on hers to help her reach certain things on high shelves (wash clothes, toilet paper rolls, etc). I certainly wouldn't recommend using it to try and move breakables around. A grabber would be much better suited for something like that, but for reaching less fragile items, this will certainly do in a pinch.
It does have a pocket clip at one end, but at nearly 7" long at it's shortest, there's no way it's fitting in a pocket comfortably.
All-in-all, a nice find. Would make a great stocking stuffer!
