You know, I have always secretly wanted a grabber. It's just something that looks like it makes life easier. But, that desire was something I kept to myself because the majority of my family are old-fashioned and believe that if something makes life easier, it makes you soft.
However, I have a couple family members who have fully accepted an easier lifestyle - my grandparents. They are
enjoying sitting in their chairs, watching television, whining about politicians, eating cookies and sleeping. They worked hard their entire lives (my grandfather is a World War II veteran) and they have earned the right to relax for the rest of their lives, as far as I am concerned. So, this grabber is going to go to them. Grandma can sit in her chair, watch Jeopardy and use the grabber to reach for and acquire the glass of water she set on down. She will not have to worry about getting up out of the chair and grabbing her walker just to lean over for her water glass.
Hey. It's the little things in life.
This particular grabber by Jackyled is very lightweight, so I do not need to worry about Grandma and Grandpa not being able to lift it. And as long as they use the lever on the side of the handle, they should be able to pick up almost anything. I did not use the lever at first and I dropped a glass. It was a test. I have been able to even pick a coin up off of my kitchen linoleum floor and a full can of tomato soup from my cabinet. So, a variety of shapes and weights can be lifted with this.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
