This Craftsman lighted pick-up tool is a must have for everyone. I bought it thinking in might not be that great and only good for picking up screws....boy was I wrong. It picks up some heavy stuff that fall out of reach. Also it is backed by Craftsmans forever warranty so I know I will have it forever. Strong magnet, Forever warrant, good grip and very long reach. No complaints here.
I bought this to replace my cheap ************** one because I had a need to get into a smaller space than that one would allow. This one fit perfectly, and I was quite happy with it. A week later (and not really even a week of use, as that week includes the weekend and 1.5 sick days), and the magnet has fallen out and the chrome is chipping off. This is ridiculous. My ************** magnetic picker upper cost me about a fifth of what this one did and has lasted for several years (and is still in fine shape, except for the accumulation of some steel chips around the edge). And from what I can see about the warranty, I have to go back to the store I got it from, which is clear on the other side of town (which means I have to waste part of my weekend on this), and they'll probably just exchange it for one off the shelf which is probably from the same poorly made lot.
The 1 stem came apart from the handle And the other was too flimsy and broke in half on our 2nd use. Not used in an inappropriate way, just around the shop to pick up dropped bolts in the engine bay. If the head gets stuck on something while you are using it good luck...
very nice tool for people with bad back !!!.
