There's a time in every person's life when gravity takes a cruel turn. I'm talking about the washer that bounces behind the washing machine. The little screw that disappears into the shag carpet. The keychain that gets kicked under the car. It's always something that's just out of reach.
That's why every person needs a telescoping magnetic grabber thingy. It's like a fishing rod for metal, and even if you use it only once in a blue moon, it's indescribably handy to have.
And cheap. For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Vibelite LED Magnetic Pickup Tool drops to just $9 with promo code BBDHKKRP. That's 50% off the regular price; a lot of similar tools sell for as much as $22.
At first blush, the Vibelite resembles a skinny metallic flashlight — which it is, because there are three bright LEDs embedded in the business end.
That end is part of a flexible neck that can bend in just about any direction. And both the base and head ends of the tool have strong magnets that should be able to pick up just about any small metal object. It extends to about 22 inches and comes with the four button batteries needed to power the flashlight.
I have one of these; it works well. In my experience the magnets are strong enough to lift the average keychain, and the light provides sufficient illumination in dark spaces.
And for $9 out the door, how can you go wrong? This would make a great stocking-stuffer.
