It’s a mutual feeling with the t-rex below when it comes to reaching for something that you have dropped in a hard to reach place. Not anymore though. Well, at least not anymore in cursed locations such as under the sofa, under the bed, at the back of a cupboard, in the drain, etc.


The General Tools flexible LED lighted mechanical pick up tool is good to squeeze through any tight space and grip what you had accidentally slipped with it’s strong claw. The claw can open up to 1.27 cm wide to do it’s thing which is half the size of what is claimed on Amazon’s website. So, don’t be fooled.

“Nobody reads three-star reviews, but here goes anyway. This things works to pick up socks behind the drier or a key chain under a car seat. But the claws don’t open far enough to pick up bigger items. Just about half an inch.”—Joseph W.

In between the claw, there’s an LED light to guide where you’re going with it and also to help you make sure that you’ve grabbed hold onto the object securely before pulling it back up to safety. Aquarium and bathroom related incidents are not a problem as well as it is rustproof.

There are two options available. 24 inches and 36 inches. Both requires LR41 batteries (included) for the LED light to be able to function.
