Grabber, Helping hand, litter picker or whatever you prefer to call these things.  Picking up aid.

For wheelchair users and wheelchair drivers they are absolutely invaluable. 

This grabber thingy has got me out of trouble many more times than I can ever remember.

I have about 5 in the house. I even use one to pick up another one when I drop it!

How any wheelchair user can manage without a grabber or helping hand is beyond me! 

They are ESSENTIAL equipment in your car too. Only a week ago I dropped my keys on the ground at a model airplane flying site. I was the last one there so without the grabber I would have been stuck!

I keep one in the rear cargo area and one inside the passenger compartment. I actually always keep a spare key on me anyway locked away in a bag on my powerchair - just in case - but I wasn't about to be leaving my expensive set of immobiliser and ramp lowering remote keys on the floor!

As every wheelchair user knows only too well everything we touch finishes up out of reach on the floor. Or starts off out of reach on a shelf or behind something...

I dropped my wallet and parking badge on the floor of my van recently. The grabber did its magic again. You NEED one or two of these in your vehicle.

These things are available all over the place very cheaply. Everywhere from garden centres to mobility dealers. It really does pay to shop around. I have seen prices on these grabbers vary from a few pounds to a few tens of pounds. But also check quality and design. Not all are equal.

I have a folding one inside my van (thrown on the rear seat) since its small. I have a longer one in the boot/trunk/luggage area. I have a variety of them at home.

Some grabbers have magnets built in but I prefer to use my magnetic picker upper for that! 

Its basically a telescopic "pen" with a small powerful magnet in the end. Picks up all kinds of stuff including keys, some coins and is small enough to keep on you at ALL times in your wallet. If you drop paper money just drop your keys next to it. Slide the paper money over the keys and pick up both at once. Stops your mates spending your money on their own beer in the pub... Another essential gadget.  But you only need one. Extends to about three feet or one meter. This one was found on the EBay.   If you are disabled and a wheelchair user or just lazy you need both of these gadgets.
