Depending on the material being lifted the extra strong magnet fitted to this pickup will lift up to 1.5 Kg or about 3.5 lbs.
The pickup has seven retractable sections allowing the tool to extend to 645mm or 2 feet. Fully closed the pickup is just 130mm long, under 5.5 inches.
There is a pocket clip installed so the pickup can be stored neatly in a pocket so it is always at hand.
The magnetic pickup has a bright chrome finish.
It is advisable to keep the tool away from items that are sensitive to strong magnetic fields. This includes mobile phones, credit cards and devices fitted with LCD screens. Ensure the pickup is kept at least 30cm from such items.
