Klein’s Telescoping LED Light and Pickup Tool allows you to retrieve any steel tool or part — the ones that always seem to drop out of reach. The telescoping arm extends almost two feet, and the gooseneck end allows you to reach around into the tough spots. When you’re in low light, the LED provides light to guide you to your tool and back. The Telescoping Magnetic LED Pickup allows you to reclaim your dropped tools, making this a must for your tool bag.

This tool is great for picking up steel items that fall in hard to reach places like behind the couch or behind the tool bench.
There is a bright light to help see, so you don't have to hold an additional flashlight. The end is flexible, so the angle of the magnet can be adjusted slightly to reach around corners.
Please remember that coins do not contain enough iron to be picked up by this tool.
I received this telescoping magnetic LED pickup tool for free to write this review.
I have a telescoping magnet, but as heavy-duty as this one. This magnet will pickup heavy wrenches and tools. The day after I got it, I was working on my truck and dropped a ¾” wrench, it picked it up easily. The light is an added bonus because it gives you one hand free. The LED is bright and always pointed where you need it. The belt clip is handy to clip on a pocket or fits nicely in a tool caddy or bag.
Pros: All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy
The Klein new Telescoping LED Pickup Tool Lights the way. If you every dropped a tool in your engine compartment you know how handy a magnetic pickup tool can be. Add a properly placed LED light on that same tool with a 2 lb. magnet you can’t lose. The telescoping arm extends 22 inches and has a stiff flexible gooseneck end to help retrieve the dropped part or tool. The pickup tool has a belt/pocket clip for easy storage and access.
I have had the tool for a couple of weeks and find that I really like the light and flexible gooseneck where the magnet attaches. This Klein pickup tools is superior to other similar tools I've had in the past.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy
This thing is awesome. Anyone who has dropped a screw or nut or bolt behind an appliance or in the engine bay of a car knows the value of a good telescoping magnetic pick up tool.
I have a cheap, small, flimsy 'pocket' version that works for small screws, but it isn't very long, can't hold much more than an ounce, and doesn't have a flashlight.
This Klein pick up tool is super heavy duty, extends to over 28" in total length, and has a neat 3" flexible section at the tip. The magnet is incredibly strong--I was able to suspend a 10" crescent wrench by just the tip of the wrench, which is incredible.
The built in flashlight is a nice touch. A small rubberized power button makes it easy to turn on and off while holding the cool, and projects a bright, tight focused beam.
The tool has a large flat metal belt clip on the back, and the entire tool is covered with a rubber outer surface. This is a serious, beefy, tool that is really well designed and well made.
With that said, since this is primarily a magnet, this is a somewhat bulky tool, considering what it is. It is great for the toolbox or tool bag, but probably not something you would carry around on you all day unless you actually need to use the magnet regularly. However, because it has the flashlight, it might be a good EDC flashlight that just happens to have a magnet.
This is a really well designed, well made, rugged, professional tool.
Pros: All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Sturdy
The Klein Tools Telescoping Magnetic LED Pickup Tool is a well thought out heavy duty version of the pickup tool. Its both a magnetic pickup tool and a light source which is often needed in tight dark spots to retrieve small parts and tools. I've owned several pickup tools over the years even one that had a three prong grabber on the end instead of a magnet. Pickup tools are a time saver when working with small fasteners like bolts or nuts that slip and falls into recess spaces. Besides wasting time it can be terribly frustrating distracting you from the job at hand to get them out. A grabber end is fine for small screws and nuts, but a magnet is more practical and a heavy duty one like here is ideal. This one has a strong magnet that can hold two pounds so it'll handle small dropped hand tools, too.
The Klein tool is 22-inches long extended with the telescoping rod and has an articulated end to better position the tool head to grab. It uses an LED light powered by two AAA batteries and casts a wide enough circle of bright light to follow the tool's end. The handle is rubber like material covered and is water resistant. It all collapses nicely down to stowaway in your toolbox or can be clipped to a belt.
The tool is not as small as others go I've seen. Fully closed is almost six inches long. It would have been nice if it had a snap on mirror attachment to use as an inspection tool to see up under things like for HVAC or engine work. Klein makes good tools and this one is not some cheap knockoff, but well thought out to do the job well and last.
This is one of those tools that you will be very glad that you have when the need arises. I have had several of the old style magnetic pick-up tools in the past but none of them had an integrated light and none of them had such a strong magnet. The light is well aimed and very bright. The last couple of inches of the extension is flexible and can be bent into a curve or whatever shape you need. The magnet will pick up heavy items, I was surprised that it easily picked up my large vice grips (see photo). High quality from Klein Tools as usual!
