Prior to owning the Handy Cane, I had a grabber in every room. I had an incident where I went to my car and dropped my keys while attempting to open my car door. Rather than risk falling while trying to pick up my keys, I waited 15 minutes for someone to come near me in a garage to help me pick up my keys. Now that I have the Handy Cane, I’ve thrown away all the inefficient grabbers I owned. It was always impractical to carry a grabber with me when I left the house but, with the Handy Cane, my grabber is always with me. Now I can easily pick up items that I drop or can’t reach. I love my Handy Cane!
