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.
I was kind of surprised by how nice this pick up is. How much is there you can do with a magnet on a stick? But it is really well designed, with a very strong magnet, nice grip, neat light feature, and assembled in USA.
My work shop had adequate, but not great, lighting. The light at the end of this wand illuminates the hard to reach places, and also in finding screws and bolts that have a knack for finding good places to hide. The other pick-up tool, I purchased I carry with my portable tool tote, and again, it saves me bending and getting down on my knees to find dropped items (or ones that just came loose). I wish I had owned these a few months ago when I was re-paddling my snow thrower (in the cold); the time they would have saved would have made the job much more bearable.
I bought this magnetic pick-up tool knowing that I would need it someday. Looks to be well made - the only thing I would ask for is for the the pick-up head to be a bit smaller.
I'm bought this knowing that I will need it someday. Wish the pick up head was a bit smaller so that it could get into tighter spaces. But other than that it looks to be very well made. Now I just have to keep my kids from stealing it.

I very much like the idea of this tool. It seems sturdy however the reason I am buying this is to replace the last one I bought which replaced the one I purchased before that. The problem I keep having with this is the magnet keeps falling out because it is not glued in good. I am going to epoxy this one in so it will not come out.
As I get older and find it harder to bend over, I find that tool is helpful in picking up dropped screws, etc. I do find that I have to visualize the piece in order to direct the magnetic pick up to it. The light helps somewhat, but its beam is pretty focused.

Handy little tool. I have a different one but it didn't have a light. I have cats so when I have to clean the floor vents.I always manage to drop a screw. Took away one star because head doesn't' pivot.
This tool has a good strong magnet (I think it's rated for 5lbs) I haven't tried it yet so I'm not sure how much you can really pick up but I'm sure it will serve the purpose I need it for which is loose nuts and bolts etc.. The light is nice and bright, hope it lasts.
