Folds for easy storage. Durable aluminum. 33" long.

I buy it again
I love the Gopher I use it ever day when my dog goes out side in the yard when it too hot to walk him or raining, it picks up his business when my knees and back hurt. I bought similar products that broke with in a months from over usage this one is perfect it easy to use and foldable so when done after washing the end I can put it away.
Jun 11, 2017
This is great
My washer has a very deep tub and I'm very short. The Gopher gets those pesky socks in the bottom of the washer tub I can't reach by myself.

I need to have one of these in every room
Need this because of sever back problems. While I may not use it for heavy things, it is extremely helpful for picking things up off the floor that I drop. plus os that by sing it (squeezing the handle to pick up things) I can slightly strengthen my hands.
Apr 12, 2017
Works like a charm.
I would certainly recommend this for anyone even if you don't have back problems.
Apr 08, 2017
VERY disappointing!
I was VERY disappointed in this item. I purchased two. Gave them away. They are VERY cheaply designed and made and could not grab onto or pick up anything but perhaps a sock or small article of clothing. IF it would grab the item, it would not hold the items.
Mar 11, 2017
Useful item
I received my first as a gift and it was very helpful. I have since bought 2 more and love them. They come in very handy when trying to reach articles up high. They have also been a very big help since I had back surgery and have had to use almost daily in picking items up off the floor or out of the washing machine since I can't bend over yet. Love these.
Mar 02, 2017
I like it
The rubber tips could be bigger...

Every body needs one
I steppeed on my old one so I had to buy one. Made the stupidist mistake of buying a 'Knock Off' from a competitor, didn't even work out of the box so I returned it. When I received mine I replaced the screws that go thru the suction cup with small nuts & bolts now the suction cup won't fall off.
Dec 15, 2016
Love this product. This replaces my old one.
Purchased this to replace my old one that I have had for years .......finally wore out. This is great for reaching out of reach items on a shelf or picking items up from the floor if you can't bend over. I just love it.
Dec 14, 2016
Disappointed
Item being sent back. Not worth the money.
Oct 08, 2016

GREAT! I use mine all the time. Comes in handy for high places.

Excellent product, couldn't be without it
My husband has a back problem, so this is a life saver

one broke 30 minutes after picking up a piece of paper.
Mar 20, 2016
Works good!
I like it. I don't think it would hold more than a couple of pounds. But I'm using it to reach the back of my pantry shelves, so it works well for that. I can pick up a box of pasta or a can of corn with it. No more straining my back and shoulders to reach the back. It would probably work best to pick up socks, slippers, toys or the newspaper from the floor. I like that it's adjustable, folds easily, and can be locked.
Mar 17, 2016
love it!
use all the time- keeps me from bending over (have bad back)
Mar 16, 2016
Love this for picking up stuff outside off the ground.
Great for picking up trash outside. I live at the end of a culdisac and there is always garbage thrown by the house.
Feb 27, 2016
lLOVE IT CAN PICK UP NEEDLES, CRUMBS ANYTHING
VERY DIFFICULT TO BEND AND PICK UP OBJECTS. I CAN PICK UP ALMOST ANYTHING EVEN TINY CRUMBS. SOMETIMES DIFFICULT TO PICK UP LIKE REMOTE CONTROL OR CELL PHONE. THINGS THAT ARE HEAVY BUT WITH A FEW TRIES CAN DO SO. CAN REACH THINGS IN BACK OF SHELVES. NOW OF COURSE CANNOT PICK UP LARGE SUPER HEAVY CANS BUT CAN SLIDE IT CLOSER TO ME. I LOVE IT.
Jan 14, 2016
no good
Not good to pickup anything heavy like it says

Love! Love! Love!
I have consistently bought the Gopher through the years since it was invented. I use them so much I wear them out! I have one in my car, one in the bedroom, one in the living room, etc. You can use them anywhere! I am very short and I can reach lots of things with the Gopher. It is sturdy enough that I can reach and grab most anything, even items that are heavy. This particular model also has a "lock" mechanism that helps keep the item within the "jaws" and not easily dropped. Love it!
Nov 29, 2015
For me is of great help.
I just love it because it is of great help for me.
Oct 02, 2015
much nicer than previous one i had seen, was surprised of q
the gopher is great for being able to get things out of reach, built very good and is adaptable for easy reach from afar at a certain distance, love it.
Sep 29, 2015
Strenghten to hold larger items
Better handle to grab and get larger items down from cupboards. Item doesn't slip out.
Sep 11, 2015
didnt last long
Used to get items from top shelf or upper cabinet. Design is great and very helpful. Dont have to get step stool out. Fell apart after a couple times being used. Screw fell out suction cup fell off. Put back together, but didnt last long before same thing happened. replaced it with a different style.

my new Gopher
the new function to be able to rotate the base is fantastic,great idea thanks a lot! i love my grabber!!!
Jun 16, 2015
Finally found the one he'd been looking for...
My brother-in-law has several reachers but none were as good as the one he used to have, the Gopher. He claims he can pick up a dime with it. Was happy to purchase this one for him when I saw it in your catalog. He loves it! I ordered two and he'll be getting the other one for Christmas!
Jun 04, 2015
Best extend a grip I've ever used.
The ability to change direction of the gripper & handle proved very convenient. Was able to get large books that had slipped behind my headboard. The locking button was wonderful. Grear product.
May 15, 2015
don't have to lean and rn the risk of falling
I wish I had a holster for it so it was always close at hand. I tried using it to wash the shower and I had tyo fold the sponge to get it to work.
Apr 25, 2015
Love these
I use this product outdoors to pick up sticks in the lawn and to put gravel/rocks back in their place. The two suction cups pick up the tiniest twig with ease and I especially love the fact that this product is slightly longer than the old so that I don't even have to stoop over. I bought two so I should be covered for quite a while.
Apr 25, 2015
Love it!
Easy to get hard reach items, beautiful for picking up sticks in yard
Apr 20, 2015
Just what I needed!!!
Need this for independance.
Apr 18, 2015
handy helper
Ability to reach up into cabinets. Also ability to reach under furniture when playing with tennis balls with puppy.
Mar 11, 2015
is worth a pass-on as an aide to assist
I have problems with my hands. Being able to have the aid to not only reach, but grab and pull down is in itself a big asset. I still maintain my independence!
Dec 27, 2014
Purchased it for my mother..
for my mom to reach things in high places.
Nov 17, 2014
dangerous.
because of the design I was taking a picture off a wall and it collapsed in the center !! which in kind made me fall off a ladder ! I was injured would never use this again . there is one that is solid wood not this hinge in the middle I trust this product. Hope no one ever goes though this.
May 31, 2014
Good Product
Had one before, for several years. I broke it doing a stupid thing with it. I ordered two more. Got them. I would recommend them to anyone.
Apr 15, 2014
do not recommend
there is a 'lock' at the bend but it does not work. when you lift something it collapses.
Mar 10, 2014
So-So
The Gopher is helpful but not of quality construction; the lock broke immediately. A previous Gopher I owned broke quickly too.
Feb 22, 2014
great product
I am on a volunteer road clean up crew and this is the best little helper that could ever be. It cuts way down on bending and reaching to get those bits of litter. Over the course of years I have worn out several of these units and hope to wear out many more!
Feb 17, 2014
Great for "Old" Backs
I've worn out several of these over the years. Used them for "yard duty" to pick up pine cones on a three-acre lot - really saved back and leg muscles. Currently a life saver in the laundry room. I've had to stack my appliances and the washer is on the bottom. Until I got the grabber, I had to crawl on my hands a knees to get that last sock stuck to the back wall of the washer. Now I grab it neatly and quickly. Thanks.
Feb 07, 2014
Gopher
Folds easily to put in walker bag. Suction cup is great for catching stink bugs!Was a great tool post op when bending and stooping was not allowed.
Jan 19, 2014
Very practical tool
I have had this tool for few years now, there are endless uses for it; I even use it to wear my clothes sometimes. With smart using it can last for a long time. It's very useful for those who suffer from back pain when picking stuff from the ground among other uses. I would recommend it to everyone; it's, again, very useful.
Jan 02, 2014
Very Handy
I am 5' 3" and this has helped me reach things in my kitchen. Also, if something falls in hard to get to places, this has worked perfectly.
Dec 22, 2013
not so great
items have to be light
Dec 16, 2013
Handy item for handicapped
Ordered for handicapped spouse - helps him retrieve dropped items - very handy.
Nov 09, 2013
O.K.
It can reach stuff but doesn't have the strangth to pick much up. Your product is a peice of junk and should be sold in a dollar store.
Sep 13, 2013
Great for everyone!
This is a great gadget, not only for older adults, but for everyone. It saves you from bending and/or stretching to reach something, possibly risking injury. I would recommend this for everyone.
Sep 04, 2013
Love it!
I use it to get stuff off top shelves in the cabinets that I can't reach instead of having to go to the garage to get the step stool!
Aug 08, 2013
Good Product
Performs as expected. Has good grip.
Jun 10, 2013
great
easy to pick things up
May 02, 2013
Very happy
I'm Handicaped and this very helpful makes it easy when I drop things.
Mar 28, 2013
Gopher
Picking up things in corners and where you can not reach. My previous one broke and I can't live without one.
Mar 02, 2013
Easy to Use
I have not had a chance to use it but it is truly a product to use when I am outside doing my recycling. It is great to use when I have to get useful recycleable materials from garbage dumpsters and trash cans. I am quite sure I will use this tool a lot and it is a great help in getting this job done. Thank you for this product.
Feb 24, 2013
Would refer this item to anyone
I use this daily because for one I am not a tall person, and second I have medical problems that I cannot use ladders, etc. Now if I need something out of reach,I don't have to wait for help, I grab my Gopher, and do it myself. I have become more independant with this item and makes me feel so much better about myself. Thank you very much!!!!
Jan 21, 2013
A must-have product
This product is such a life saver for me I have one in every room of my home. I am disabled and use it to pick up items from floor, across table, up high, in and out of cupboards - I mean anywhere. To keep suction cups from falling off I use putty to secure them. After doing this not one has broken. My family & friends tease me & call me the "reacher lady." ("Reacher" is my name for them.) They say they're for old people, then when they see how great they are they buy one for themselves. I should get a commission!!!

Great 'Back-Saver' in the yard, too!
Once I discovered how useful this thing is for picking up twigs, small branches and the like in the yard, I bought several and keep extras on hand. It's a real lower-back "saver" letting me avoid the ups and downs and constant bending over that goes with yardwork. I've even given some to friends who have back problems but still need to clean up their yards. They love 'em, too! The only drawback to this tool stems from a design flaw: the little rubber suction cups, which are fastened onto the spring steel arms with short screws, wear out with the sort of heavy use the tool is subjected to during yard clean-ups, and they fall off (alwys seems to be the one on the right side). The screws usually sail off and disappear in the grass, never to be seen again. If you can find the rubber cup, you can try a larger screw but it won't hold for long. Granted, this thing was intended for light and occasional indoor use, not heavy use outdoors; but I find it such a help during Fall and Spring yard cleanups that its worth having extras. So when the little screws give way and the rubber cups go sailing off, I just toss the whole thing and go get another from my garage stash. My poor ol' back is very grateful!!!!
Aug 12, 2012
I just LOVE this product.
I use this product to reach things that are to high to get at inside and I also use it outside to pick up stick in the yard so I don't have to keep bending over. I originally got this as a gift and after a few years, the plastic in the middle broke so I HAD to order a new one.
Aug 05, 2012
I would buy this product again
great anywhere you need a longer arm
Aug 01, 2012
Just what I was needing!
It came in my mail, perfect! Great handling. It was the thing I was missing the most to pick up items on the floor in difficult places and reaching for others in unreachable places before owing it. Thanks!
Jul 07, 2012
What a great help
The Gopher is such a wonderful help in picking things up off the floor and getting things that are high up. We had another one for about 30 years but this one is much better with the suction cups. Can't live without it!
Apr 24, 2012
Waste of money
Broke in half in less than a month, with very little use. Was unable to pick up many items. Usually took many attempts to pick up things.. Due to broken Femur, I am in bed for about 3 months, Gopher was supposed to make mine & my husband's life easier. 80% of the time never worked. Snapped in half at the bendable joint while trying to pick up a small bottle of eye drops. Very disappointed.
Apr 20, 2012
Helpful tool
I use this when picking cans and bottles to recycle. I love how it can fold in half to store.
Apr 09, 2012
what a great help
works much better then i expected. was able to get stuff from top back corner of kitchen cabinet. able to grab and hold tight items that i thought might be heavy for it and no slippage.
Mar 26, 2012
Better then expected
this worked much better then I expected. Able to reach way up in top back corner of kitchen cabinets. Grabs hold nicely. Able to handle larger jars easily. Can use it to maneuver things around up high with the Gopher to get them in place to grab. Able to put things UP on top shelfs and stack them up. Did Not think of that when I bought it. Great product at low price. Getting 1 for my sisters house.
Jan 15, 2012
Priceless Jewel
Had surgery on left shoulder,so cant reach to high..Love my gopher..It is very easy to store away. I have purchased some as gifts.. Workmanship is great for the price
Jan 03, 2012
Use it a few time before you judge
I only used it to try before I gave as a gift,but the reciever of the Gopher is thrilled with it. The fact that it is easy to store,but also strong.
Dec 26, 2011
tempted to return
When I try to use the gopher, many times is will collapse/bend by the red band. It does not always pick up items very well.
Dec 26, 2011
Handy tool to give the reach needed
I bought two of the Gophers. One for home and one for work. Great tool for picking up things that rolled behind something or under something without having to strain to retrieve it.
Nov 28, 2011
I would buy this product again..
I am now able to reach things that required a stool before the Gopher! Thanks!
Oct 11, 2011
THE GOPHER IS A GOD-SEND!!
This was a gift to my 90 year old aunt who suffers terribly from knee and back pain. As she put it: "This is a God-send! I'm able to reach for anything I need without aggravating my back or my knees. Thank you and Harriet Carter!!"
Sep 23, 2011
It'S not A Strong Prduuct
Rubber tips fall off easily . can't reach cabinat shelf or can't pick up what I need woud be great if head were movaablebe.Use it To pick up small light object's from floor.
Aug 10, 2011
Greatest product ever invented
This was purchased for my mother whom is alone during the day, and has a hard time picking things up off the floor. This product works great for her when she is alone.
Aug 01, 2011
MOM LOVES IT!
Mom's 85 and doesnt reach or bend so well...This helps alot!
Jul 29, 2011
Picks up more items than I expected.
To reach things dropped behind my dryer, or to get things in the back of my cupboard.
Jun 30, 2011
gopher helps alot
I use it when I need to reach something that I would need to stand up which is hard for me to do.
May 23, 2011
This is the 2nd purchase of the gophers
I have three of these and use them in the basement work shop - out doors in the garage work area - the swimming pool - some yard work and in the house - excellent product for the price
May 18, 2011
Makes life easier
I am in a wheelchair Goffer makes it possible for me reach things that were unaavailable. Gods gift to the handicapt'
May 12, 2011
Go Go Gopher!
I have shoulder and lower spine pain. This Gopher makes it so easy to reach without putting pressure on those areas. The length also seems to make things lighter. Not hard to grip which I was worried about (dropping something once I got it). Great product.
May 10, 2011
"Good for the money"
Would buy this product again, good for yard work.
Apr 05, 2011
Reach without dropping!
I got mine on a whim. Used it so much I've had to replace the rubber tips. (screws came out) Just bought a second one.
Apr 04, 2011
Great used for trash
The Gopher is great for picking up trash along the road side. It is light weight, folds for storage, and will pick up paper, bottles and cans.
Mar 30, 2011
I could not pick up papers with it.
I have some disabilities and I needed it to help me pick up things I drop, since bending over hurts me to do, plus could cause me to fall down. I could not pick up a piece of paper that had blown to the shrubs while I was waiting for the bus to pick me up. I was forced to ask for help which I am trying to learn to independent.
Mar 22, 2011
Product performs as advertized
None
Mar 18, 2011
The Gopher, a very useful product
The Gopher allows me to pick up things that have fallen to the floor that I can not pick up because of my disability. I use the product daily.
Mar 16, 2011
Works Like A Charm
It is as usefull as another pair of hands for that item that is not too heavy and not too slippery
Mar 07, 2011
Don't just buy one, you'll want a couple
I love my gopher, I am disabled and have difficulty picking things up off the floor or reaching for things in cabinets. I have a gopher in the shower for when I drop the soap, shampoo or wash clothe and can't pick it up. I also have one sitting next to my lazy boy chair, in my car for when things fall on the floor or if something falls out of the car while removing my walker, it helps me retrieve so many items. And of course, I have one in my bedroom. My only negative comment is that I have one that the rubber tip at the end broke off where the screw enters the back and I have tried everything to repair it, unsuccessfully. I think it would be a little better design if the rubber tips were attached using wood or bamboo (which would keep the design light weight).
Mar 06, 2011
great help!
I bought this for my mom so she would no longer have an excuse for not being able to pick up something off the floor. It may sound kinda mean but when someone is not available to help her she may fall trying to pick up something. It works very well with the suction cups on the end and the handle is not too hard for her to pull.
Mar 02, 2011
Excellent Product
My new right hand!
Feb 20, 2011
GOPHER
IT REACHED BEHIND I DRESSER WHICH I COULD NOT MOVE AND PICKED UP THINGS THAT HAD FALLEN DOWN. VERY SATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT.
Feb 07, 2011
Wonderful Product!
My husband & I absolutely love the Gopher (we call it the "Picker Upper"). We have one in every room & we each have one at our workplaces. We use at least one of them every day. It seems like we're always dropping something. We use it indoors & outdoors. I wouldn't use it on anything heavier than the recommended 5 lbs., though.The suction cups will unscrew in time but we put a little Gorilla Glue on each screw & screw it all back together. The suction cups have never come off after that. It's great for bad backs. No more bending. We don't know what we'd do without it!

Gopher reach extension
Used the product to pick up litter along the roadside. Works well.

A back-saver in the yard!
We have lots of trees in our yard and after a storm or heavy rain there are hujndreds of little branches all over the yard. This tool turns out to be very handy to pick them up rather than having to bend down all the time. Weak spot is the rubber cup attachments. After some use they tend to work loose, drop off and disappear when you are not looking. Solution: tighten the screws frequently, and buy several spares to store in the garage. Otherwise I think they are a great bargain and a real back-saver!
