Manual gripping pliers, also known as helping hands, allow you to hold or grasp objects in the immediate vicinity and thus extend your reach.
Gripping pliers are available in different lengths, they are often foldable and have a locking device to fix the gripped objects. The gripping surfaces are made of non-slip material. Additional magnets on the gripper head allow the pick up of metallic objects. There are also special toilet paper grippers.
