This Craftsman lighted pick-up tool is a must have for everyone. I bought it thinking in might not be that great and only good for picking up screws....boy was I wrong. It picks up some heavy stuff that fall out of reach. Also it is backed by Craftsmans forever warranty so I know I will have it forever. Strong magnet, Forever warrant, good grip and very long reach. No complaints here.
I use these "stick" magnets all the time. I always have 2 of them attached to my wheel chair, as they make life a lot easier for so many reasons it would take too long to list them all here. As it was, one of mine had turned up "missing in action" somehow, and so I was doing some shopping and saw this one. It hadn't been on the shelf on my previous trips that I could remember, and so it looked like a good sized magnet so I picked it up. Once home I was trying it out, and I thought maybe the collar around the magnet was preventing the magnet from being stronger. So when I turned it, that's when I found out it had a light on the end of it. Suddenly this became a GREAT idea. So someone else had the problem of hunting that screw that fell to the back of a stack of boxes and decided to solve the problem with this gizmo. Like the title says, "A little thought goes a long way", and this simple device proves it. It just makes plain good sense. Now you will notice I gave it 3 stars. The reason it's not higher is because the magnet is a LOT weaker than it should be for it's size. It will pick up some screws, but often I need my stick magnets to do some pretty hefty work. I will be replacing the magnet in this, but the idea is dead on.

Very handy device especially with the LED. Made in USA + lifetime warranty, looks decent quality, compact and light for its size. 5 lb. magnet lift spec. must have been a special test criteria, realistically more like 1-2 lbs. for items most folks would pick up. Design improvements I'd like to see: A magnet shield around the edge of the magnet so it doesn't grab stuff on the side and a little stouter telescoping rod, or at least in the critical segments.

Not super heavy duty, but the light makes this a must have in the tool box. It will come in handy for those lost bolts in the engine compartment. Worth every penny.

This thing is great for almost any application you were to use it in. The magnet is very strong and the light works awesome in the dark. For the $$ you cannot go wrong with this product. It has a nice grip with it too.
Works great and the light at the end is particularly useful. I saw a complaint about the magnet not being strong enough but if you are navigating through a lot of metal to get to a screw then too strong of a magnet can also be an issue. I picked up, as a test, an entire set of allen wrenches in their case with this magnet so I think its strong enough for my use.

This is great help in finding and picking up screws, nails, earring backs, etc. The built in light is very helpful. My husband liked mine so much he's ordered one for himself.

I have always thought that this would be a great thing to have, so I saw it on sale and bought one. It works great picking up staples and paperclips in the office when they fall between desks and the vacuum can't get to them.

I have a couple magnets already: a shirt-pocket telescopic and a 15 lb. telescopic. Both do their job, but the small one can only handle about a pound; anything heavier and you risk dropping and breaking or losing it. The heavy duty magnet serves its purpose and is extremely strong - sometimes making it difficult to break loose the item you used it to pick up! The handle is smooth and worn ... and slippery! Both magnets are older and a little rusty. This new SEARS CRAFTSMAN magnet is telescopic, constructed of stainless steel for anti-rust & -corrosion, is just the right strength -- how often do you pick up a fastener or tool from the shop floor or lock washer dropped in the engine bay that weighs more than 5 lbs.? But my favorite thing about this magnet that sets it apart from the pack is the easy to use, very bright LED light, which is bright enough to use as small-but-bright light when needed. And the grip is textured rubber that provides excellent grip when your hands are oil-slick and the grip material cleans up to like-new. This is one of those tools one rarely thinks of ... until they need it. Do yourself a favor and buy one. This one is a great tool and a bargain. A definite recommend.
