I’m finding uses for the Nifty Nabber after getting it form Home Depot hadn’t thought about. Originally, it was to reach up high on shelves in my pantry in the kitchen. Now. I’m finding other uses for it like reaching behind the washing machine where I’m always losing detergent bottles up against the wall and in the garage to fetch things from a rather high and long shelf on the back wall. The grabber is sturdy and you can even use one claw as a hook to catch container handles,. The jaws are rubbery covered metal so it doesn’t flex and can hold items tight. I’ve reached and grabbed cans of tomatoes off of top shelf’s. It opens five inches which seems to do the job so far. Its one of those handy things nice to have around the house. I keep it in the broom closet and granted, not used all the time, but glad I have it when needed.
