Deluxe tongs help change a lightbulb. Each extendable grabber is 32"L.

Each year, thousands of unsuspecting Americans fall at home leaving many of them seriously injured and even disabled. In 2010, more than 12,800 people over age 65 died and 1.6 million were treated in emergency departments because of falls.

Falls can occur unexpectedly, even to the most sure-of-foot person. Most falls take place at home, making proactive fall prevention around the house so important. Here are some safety tips to help prevent slips, trips, and falls:

    Easy Comforts fall prevention and home safety tips
  • Reduce your risk of trips and slips by keeping your feet firmly in touch with the ground.
  • Use products that hold rugs in place and add traction to slippery surfaces.
  • Never walk around the house barefoot or in socks/slippers with smooth bottoms.
  • Ensure uniform lighting in rooms by adding lights to dark areas.
  • Use motion-sensing lights so you can see where you're walking.
  • Place lighting close to the bed, where it’s easy to reach.
  • Preventative measures, such as handles and mats, lessen the chance of being caught off guard.
  • Keep items used frequently on lower shelves (about shoulder level).
  • Use a stool with a bar attached for additional stability when reaching items on high shelves.
  • Place non-slip mats or strips on the floor of the tub or shower.
  • Add bars inside and outside your bathing area and next to the toilet.

    Health tips for preventing falls
  • Exercise regularly. Focus on increasing leg strength and improving balance.
  • Identify your medications that may cause side effects such as dizziness or drowsiness.
  • Keep an eye on your vision health and visit an eye doctor at least once a year.

In addition to fall prevention at home, being aware of weather and terrain conditions when you venture outdoors is also important. Easy Comforts offers easy-to-handle products that can reduce hazards and aid in personal stability while away from home.

Happy grabber
We purchased this product to help retreive our dogs balls she manages to roll under furniture. Works perfect for that and other uses, I'm sure.

I bought this for my husband to replace a similar product he used to reach model trains up on shelves. He really likes this one because it has an adjustable grasp that adapts to objects of different widths. He also says it is well-made, compared to others he's had in the past.

My mother had bought this years & years ago. I had it after she passed for about 8 yrs when it finally broke. I am only 5'1" so I do use it a lot instead of always bringing out my 3 step ladder.

This is my favorite!
I am vertically challenged and use this daily to reach items in my kitchen cabinets, laundry room, closet shelves, etc. I bought 2 of these years ago and couldn't remember where I had bought them. I have purchased others, some looked much sturdier. Each has it's own strong points, but none give you the control of this one - I use it to get glass dishes off my top shelf. 98% of the time, this is the one I use. I'm ordering another one to keep in my basement and getting another for my mom.

I bought one of these in the 1980's and am still using it! I could not remember from where, but now I am ordering several more. It is so useful wherever I go. Especially in the grocery store. I will now keep one in my car. Other extenders that fold , collapse sometimes while in use and are flimsy. I have recommended this product to strangers who ask me about it. It is awesome!

Drop anything, easy pick up!!
I can reach and turn off the light, pull my walker closer. Pick up a book I dropped. Find a metal pin with magnetic.I may even try pulling weeds but I don't want to get it dirty. Maybe I need to buy another.

Not only helps to reach higher shelves but has a good grip--grabs better than similar items.

Had one of these for a long time and finally had to replace it. Tried many others, but they don't open wide enough allow you to pick up larger items such as a roll of paper towels or a larger cup. This one can also pick up a dime. Makes life easier!

Darrell W on May 14, 2018
The metal reacher was chosen because the plastic ones I've tried didn't open wide enough for what I need.
Raihana Z on May 13, 2018
The grabbing tong fingers are narrower/thinner and allow me to easily slide between cereal boxes on my highest shelf. Other grabbers have thick tongs which are difficult to position between boxes stacked tightly together on the shelf. I can also 'stab' thru plastic wrap on paper towel packages and grab them from the end-sides of the rolls. John 62 y/o

what store in lou ky can I get a deluxe reach extender at?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I got mine from Easy Comforts. It works better than the more expensive folding metal ones and doesn't break as easily. I haven't found these in a store and I haven't been in Louisville in a couple of years so I'm not familiar with your stores. It has been used every day since 2012 and is still(reachy-grabby).
What is the weight capacity with this grabber? This looks like the very kind I've been searching for a long time now!!
nancy p on Nov 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The weight limit is three pounds. We hope this information will be of help to you.

Thank You,
Easy Comforts
Can you please tell me what kind of hand grip this has?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It has a spring action handle to grip objects. We hope this information will be of help to you.
can it pick up a pencil ?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can pick up a pencil or pen. I have also picked up a post card with the grab it.
