Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doresoom Good Grabber!
This grabber saves me the trouble of dragging a step stool to the laundry room every time I need something out of the cabinet. We put in a pedestal washer/dryer combo, and they're so deep and tall I can't reach the cabinets without help anymore!
I'm impressed by the overall sturdiness, and most of the grabber is constructed of aluminum, with the exception of the plastic handle. The rubberized gripping surfaces have small fins that deform around the object being lifted in order to give a more secure hold. There's also a magnet built into one of the grippers that can pick up a decent sized lag bolt.
The handle is designed in such a way that the gripping action is naturally activated when holding a heavy object. This design feature makes it easier to pick up and hold larger objects with less fatigue. The jaws couldn't quite get around a jumbo roll of paper towels, but once I nudged them over, I could grab them by the tube in the middle. The jaws are big enough to easily fit over the smallest dimension of a standard box of tissues though. It can also handle picking up smaller objects as well - I found I could easily retrieve dimes, pennies, and quarters off of the floor.
As for the jaw width, I measured it at 5.5" at its widest point, and 4.125" at it's narrowest clearance when open.
Overall, these grabbers are an excellent solution for reaching high places and avoiding bending over to pick up objects on the floor. The grip strength is very good, and the design is excellent.

I now have 3 of these tools. They are well made and work flawlessly. I wish they were cheaper. Even the one that I drove over still works perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ka Excellent purchase
I was able to grasp even very small items.....or small bunches. Due to back issues, this was a lifesaver when needing to clear the yard of sticks and small branches, gumballs, galls. Easy to use...and can use with either hand. Not sure how someone with arthritis in the hands would fare (squeezing). Have not used it to reach high items, but it will probably do just as well. Found this by accident while shopping for other items.

I like the idea of the nifty nabber, I purchased this item to get the stuck clothing out of the laundry shoot. The pole it self should be adjustable for high to reach places. For the cost I will be returning this item.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mommyto22011 Can reach EVERYTHING
I love my nifty nabber, I use it at home every day, the reason I bought it is because I got one of these new huge washers and I can't reach the bottom without practically climbing in! So I went and purchased on of these and now I can reach all the way down to the bottom, it also helps me drag toys out from under the kids beds! I seriously love this!!
