    Lightweight Duty Only This product is advertised with an aluminum handle. However, my handle is NOT aluminum! It is hard plastic, but has been durable. The Nabber is solid overall. Having looked at many models, I was alerted to consider whether a cord vs. a wire is used to operate the jaws when the handle is pulled. Cord may have a tendency to degrade or stretch out and render the jaws unable to fully close when the handle is pulled. This Nabber has a wire to draw the jaws, which should mostly eliminate the possibility. Note that, with the jaws fully closed, the handle potentially could only be depressed another one-eighth inch before contacting the pole; so any stretching or other maladjustment could quickly affect one’s ability to depress the handle far enough to draw the jaws fully closed. The jaws HAD good alignment and contact when first bought, but I often have had to bend them back into alignment after applying a little pressure on them, for example, by grasping a rag to wipe a spill off the floor with a back-and-forth motion. I’ve picked up a dime, an M&M, a paper clip, etc. off a hard surface, but that is becoming more problematic considering the number of times I’ve had to bend the jaws back into position. It handles 1-lb. food cans easily. The jaws are at an angle of about 30 degrees from the pole. The models with small suction cups seemed problematic to me. Several reviewers of those models agreed that the cups may degrade or fall off, thus compromising the grasping surface. No such problem with this tool.

    very effective I was not surprised that I was happy with this product. I have used Unger’s equipment for professional window cleaning for years and was very satisfied. Although this product is made for picking up trash without having to bend down to pick it up I purchased it for a different reason. Fortunately, I was able to try the Pro model before buying this one. The only difference I found between the pro and this one is that the pro is made with a steel shaft and is different colors. Since I was borrowing it I wanted my own. This one has an aluminum shaft, I assume to cut down on weight and resulting fatigue from using it for long periods. I purchased this item because I injured my leg and needed something that would help me do things quicker. You can grip items as strong as you like or as easy as you like. I’ve picked up full 1 liter nalgene bottles with it and I’ve picked up a dime off a concrete surface. It also has a fairly mild (yet effective) magenet on one of the pinchers to help pick up metal items like paperclips and safety pins. I routinely used it to grab sets of keys off of a board where the keys were hung on hooks as part of my job without having to get out of my chair. This is a very diversely useful product and it seems to be quite durable. You’ll not that it also has a little hole on the handle in order to hang it on a hook or nail. I also got it really fast up here in Alaska.
