Homecraft Pick-Up Reacher Modification

This is a modification to the Homecraft Rolyan Pick-Up Reacher.

The modification with wider jaws and a design that curves round means that it can get underneath the object to ‘scoop’ it… making it easier to pick up (and also maintain hold with a weaker grip).
