I have purchased cheap ones in the past and the kids have destroyed them. this one is a better quality. I bought 2 and gave one to my son, he is a mechanic. He has used different brands and he said this one works the best.
My son is constantly working in our garage. He uses a lot of various screws and nails that seem to end up on the garage floor and many times under cabinets. This is perfect for corralling all the loose parts and for reaching underneath things.
Great Little Tool , I use it all the Time , I have Purchased two for myself and one for my Mother . Comes in Handy when working under the Hood or in the Dash .
While tool shopping for my husband, I bought this handy gadget for myself. I no longer lose the earring backs I drop. This handy gadget locates them and picks them up.
This is good to have around if you work with small metallic stuff like screws and nuts and bolts since if you lose them in some corner or hard to reach places you can use this pick it up. It would be better if it had a longer reach and the tip was smaller but I guess the latter may be undoable given it's a magnet. May also be useful for picking up metallic stuff that you don't want to touch for being too hot or dirty.
This magnet is super powerful in a small package. The rubber-feel grip handle is very useful and feels great in hand. The magnet end has a small moveable collar that protects the magnet from sticking to unwanted surfaces when sticking it through tight spaces. But once your ****** is selected the collar just pushes back and the magnet grabs a easily. VERY useful!
It has helped me retrieve all kinds of items that all of sudden falls in a place not reachable by hand. It has been a big lifesaver.
This magnetic pickup tool is small and compact. Great for picking up loose nuts and bolts. I have a bigger and stronger one, but this one will fit in almost all places.
