A pickup retrieval tool may be better known in the automotive world to recover bolts, screws, and washers that have fallen in hard to reach areas, but there are also plenty of uses in the household for these specialty tools.
For any object that has fallen…gotten stuck behind…or under a very confined area, you will be greatly aided with a compact grabber tool for retrieval.
Many times over the years I’ve found these to be great go-to tools in recovering:
- Laundry that has fallen behind washing machines and dryers, or furniture.
- Batteries that have rolled under washing machines and dryers, or furniture.
- Anything that may have fallen down a sink drain.
- Keys or small toys between car seats.
Flexible Claw Pick-up Tool
The small diameter flexible shaft easily fits in most tight spaces and the 4-claw models are good for non-ferrous items that magnetic models alone cannot attract.
Try one of the claw and magnetic combination pick-up tools for the ultimate in retrieving magnetic and non-magnetic items.
LED models are available to help see in those low lit spaces.
Telescoping Magnetic Retrieval Tool
These telescoping magnetic pick-up tools can mimic the look and size of a pen when completely collapsed, but extend in increments of up to 2-feet or more when needed.
This small, yet long, tool is great for retrieving batteries, screws, or any other ferromagnetic object that has rolled under or fallen into tight spaces.
Want a larger grip area and stronger magnet? There are models available to fill those needs too.
