Rated 5 out of 5Â by hpiguy It's Nifty and It Nabs! Very Convenient, Metal Construction, Long Reach
The all metal 36 inch Nifty Nabber by Unger is a handy tool for hundreds of purposes.
Need to reach that cup at the top of the cupboard? Drop a tool through the engine bay? Can't get to the meatball the kid tossed under the table? Do you want to win a long distance milking contest? How about reaching out and giving that special someone a pinch from across the couch? Is your soda just a bit out of reach from the recliner? The Nifty Nabber is your tool! (OK, I really don't recommend trying to milk a cow with it! )
We have a small waterfall feature and this is the bees knees for reaching to the bottom and grabbing rocks, kids toys and anything else that falls in without getting an arm soaking wet. It's also great for grabbing dropped tools in the garage and placing knick knacks on high shelves.
The tighter you squeeze the handle, the stronger it holds. Squeeze lightly and it holds without crushing. Perfect if you need a gentle touch such as putting Grandma's antique star on the tree.
All aluminum alloy construction for the jaws and handle means it won't break easily and it won't rust if used in wet applications.
The plastic operating grip is a comfortable size and allows for secure holding. Because of the great operation handle design it can be used with one hand.
The jaws are covered in a thick grippy rubber and one of the jaws has a small magnet inserted
It's a great tool and a great bargain. Much better than cheaper all plastic versions. A welcome addition to the tool set.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OCEANSIDE I'm impressed. I can pick up a cent off the floor with this thing!
This device extends your reach 3 feet. It is a metal pole that is sturdy.
The handle is plastic, but has a comfortable grip.
The pads at the end have grooves and I was very impressed when I was able to pick up a cent off the floor easily. The grips locked on and it is actually easier to use this than your fingers.
I'm not sure what the weight limit is. I was able to lift a 2 1/2 pound box from the shelf but you need to have a good grip on it and hold it firm.
This is a great tool for picking up items from both the ground and from the upper shelves in your kitchen.

I originally got this to try to remove some weeds that were growing out of my gutter. It did strip the leaves from the stems, but it was not strong enough to grab the roots out since the weeds are so tenacious. That was kind of disappointing, but I am finding other uses for the Nifty Nabber. I have cabinets that go all the way up to the 9 foot ceiling in my kitchen, and the Nabber can easily grab items from the very top shelf. It is quite lightweight, and the rubber grips do a good job of holding things until I get them down to the counter. It opens only about 6 inches wide, but that is wide enough for most cans, bottles, and jars.

Great product if used properly. Tangs are easily bent out of shape and realignment is not always possible for teeth to be like it was when new. Easy to use and makes picking up small and lightweight items much easier than bending over. Great for putting items up on high shelves when unloading dishwasher. I would have given it a higher rating except that those tangs are easily bent when not used as intended.

It literally safe my skin. I used it to grab the cactus cuttings. Just for the job of cutting down a 5 ft tall 5 ft wide cactus, it is worth it.
