This grabber is easy to use with just a simple pull trigger to activate the claw. Gives your arm another 3′ of length to grab those things on the top shelf. Need just enough room to slide the jaws around your item and bring it to you. No skid gribber helps hold tight. A telescoping handle could be useful but the 3′ length will keep you from needing that short step stool so much. Limited in size to smaller cans and such which is understandable considering weight constraints.
