Whether you admit it or not, we know that you know what we’re talking about — that brief second where things all go wrong and that little bit of metal something falls into a space that by all calculations it shouldn’t have been possible for it to fall in. Yet there you are jamming your fingers down a hole altogether to small for them, trying to reach that little whatsit.
Hasn’t happened to you yet? You’re not trying hard enough. For those unhappy occasions, it’ll help to have a flexible grabber. The design is simple yet effective; Just slide the grabber end into the offending space. Once you’ve found your target, push the claw open by squeezing the handles together and then release them and pull the wayward object free.
Grabbers come in varied sizes and can be found for a few dollars on the net or at your local auto center. The one pictured came from a local dollar store. (Guess how much it cost.) Trust us: You want one of these. Really.
