I just bought a grabber from Harbor Freight Tools. On the box it
says, "Extends your reach by nearly 3 feet." I measured the
distance between the end of my thumb and the end of the grabber. The

as "nearly" should be at least 90 percent of the size/length of what
it is being compared to. Ninety percent of 36 is 32.4.
Twenty-eight is less than 78 percent of 36.
I think that Harbor Freight Tools is being deceptive when they
describe this grabber. What do you think?

specs and labeled with American shoes sizes. I don't rule
out occasional snafus but systematic size-label error is

the server could not be reached thus it was not sent...see what happens
with this one. Heck, it could be 42 feet once they all get there!
Don't, if it's that blue plastic one. I bought one. There are better
I use one - a better one, now - when I pick up the fallen branches,
pine cones, and potato plants from my yard before mowing the grass. It
saves bending over multiple times.
