Lean on Me

This reacher-grabber cane not only offers an extra leg, it also offers an extra hand. Its sturdy design has a two pronged grabber built in, so you can pick up fallen objects without bending over. A button on the handle lets you release and retract the grabber to grasp dropped keys, glasses, and napkins without putting strain on your back. There’s also a removable hook you can hang a purse, bag, keys, or jacket from, or hang the cane itself from, by turning the hook upside down. Whether you’re going through a quick recovery, or something more long term, Snapper Cane is one to lean on.

    Hello Grommet Community! I’m Dan Byrne, owner of The Snapper Cane. Thanks for joining us as we launch our cane with The Grommet. The Snapper Cane was designed to provide increased functionality to the traditional cane in two ways. First, by allowing for picking up items while minimizing the need for bending and second, the ability to carry items or store your cane easily with the handy hood. I look forward to answering any questions you may have.

    Hi there! As we all know, canes must be adjustable to the nearest inch depending on the height of the person or it can cause considerable harm to the patient using it. I only see two heights. Are you planning on making more sizes?

    @elizabeth - Hi Elizabeth. Thanks for your question. So far we have not considered any additional sizes but you raise an interesting point. If we find that users would benefit from a size in between our existing 33 and 36 inch or a smaller or larger size we would certainly consider producing it.

    @Dan as a physical therapist I can tell you haven't done your research into the cane end of the business because Elizabeth is absolutely correct. Persons needing a cane to walk need it adjusted correctly. Having only two sizes is not appropriate and will end up harming your consumers.

    Additionally, it is very medical looking and most consumers are moving toward more decorative canes so they can express their personalities. Just a thought for the future...

    I don’t mind how it looks but do worry about the length. When desperately needing a cane as I do at times this grabber feature is something I wanted. I am buying one but if they were adjustable I’d buy more for other members of my family.

    I bought one for myself because my current cane is about 33 1/2 in. I live in a senior community and belong to senior groups so am looking forward to showing this off.

    I’ve wished and looked for something like this in the past. As a physical therapist you know how important the length of the cane is for shoulder and hip comfort so please see about designing that feature.

    As an engineer I understand why a cane with a mechanism inside (the grabber) would be extremely difficult to be made adjustable. I would note your two sizes seem to be based on the mean of the normal distribution of women and men heights. While I applaud your willingness to produce other sizes it seems to me this grabber cane cannot be for everybody.

    I am 4' 11" tall, so the 33 inch cane needs to be either 27 or 29 inches to be of benefit for me.

    Also my mother, who is 6' tall would need a cane slightly longer than 36 inches.

    Do you think the 33 inch cane could be used by me?

    @Toya - Hi, Toya. Are you currently using a cane? If so, I would recommend measuring that one to compare to what the 33 inch would be like. If you are not currently using a cane you could always buy one and return it if it doesn't meet your expectations.

    It's 1 lb, Marian. It's not available in Natick at the moment, but it soon could be.
