Long tweezers — finally


I've long since lost count of how many times I've dropped things like my keys down the black hole next to my car's driver seat.

Whoever designed the admittedly comfy bucket never had something slip out of his pocket while sitting in it.

Unbelievable contortions and effort are required to retrieve items which have somehow wedged their way down below the railings and cushion into impossible–to–visualize — much less access — locations.

Now come these formidable 10"–long tweezers to spare my fingers and knuckles future misery.

These puppies will be placed in a convenient trunk location.

Can't wait for first use.

$7.95 here.

A reader has informed me of his "Centrisk" tongs (below) from IKEA.


He wrote, "They are long (11"), narrow and withstand temperatures up to 428ºF (220ºC). They've got little nubbies at the end of each side to facilitate effective grabbing."

Best of all they're only 99 cents apiece.

But — IKEA only sells them in its actual physical stores, not online or via catalog.
