where do you but a grabber?

I just wanted to know where you all have gotten your grabbers from? I keep dropping things and hollering for help! Thanks! Melinda

Sorry, somehow I posted this thread twice. It must be the drugs! Melinda

Re: where do you but a grabber?

I bought mine at Walgreens but soon after that I saw one on QVC for half the price I paid. If you go to QVC.com and type in "Easy Reacher", they have one for $15.99, plus shipping.

I got mine from the PT at the hospital after my surgery- I think it was $20.

Dh received his as part of his PT packet following his microdiscectomy. Even tho $15 isn't much to pay, you prolly could get a prescrip from your dr and have your insurance cover it. Bet it would be at an outrageous price, too, however.

Re: where do you but a grabber?

I've seen them at Bed Bath & Beyond and at Linen's N Things - but the more sturdy ones (and better in my opinion) are at pharmacies (best ones where they sell other pharmaceutical appliances). The ones at BB&B and LNT are a bit cheaper (but you get what you pay for).

I submitted the receipt to my insurance company and was turned down. Oh well, still money well spent.

Re: where do you but a grabber?

I got mine at a True Value hardware store. It cost about 20 bucks. It was money well spent although I was very glad when I did not need it anymore.

Re: where do you but a grabber?

I bought the EZ reacher deluxe from their website for 25.00. It has the wider head and can lift 5 lbs and bigger stuff than most others can. Didn't want a cheapie that didn't do the trick. I found the ones at the drug stores to have too small of heads.

I bought the 32" for me and two 42" ones for my dad to keep at either end of his house. Use mine all the time and I'm 6 mons post op.
