We've been using pick up stix in our parks for 25 years. Your latest model is much improved over the past models. I like the bright orange handles but the foam could be a little thinner.
I bought this item because there was nothing to wear out on it. No suction cups to come off etc. It does lack a rubber surface that allows one to pick up smooth items. I expect to come up with a way to compensate for that lack.
The clean up caddy is simple and useful for just about any kind of worker to use pick up litter. We spend 4 crew hours each day doing it. They last us about 2 years. The tips end up getting worn down and the U-shaped guide eventually loosens, and can fall off. But still the price is right for 2 years of usefulness.
i have been using them for 16 years would not be without them they are a great tool for getting down in bushes under cars and compactors and best of all they are a green tool when they wear out and won't pick up you can recycle them
We have 3 of these around the house, in the basement, and in my husband's workshop. We use them for picking up anything and everything off the floor. I also use it to reach clothes in the back of the dryer. Also outside I use it to pick up clumps of leaves in our pond. So handy - saves bending over and at our age (70's), that's not so easy anymore.
