Very helpful tool! It can pick up even the tiniest piece of paper which is very helpful now that I have a hip issue and can no longer bend. I am short and can reach places I would have needed a stool for but can’t stand on a stool anymore. For me, though, because of my short arms its a little hard to take something from the grip end and put it into my other hand while holding the handle — can do it but its a little awkward so a few inches shorter would be great but then again for reaching higher things the extra inches are helpful!!
