What are pick-up tools made from?
|The end of a pick-up tool holds a strong neodymium magnet which attracts ferromagnetic materials to the tool.

|The telescopic tubing or flexible shaft of a pick-up tool is usually made from aluminium or stainless steel. Both are non-magnetic so as not to interfere with the tool. Aluminium and stainless steel are also both corrosion resistant.|
|The claw of the clawed pick-up tool is also made from either stainless steel or aluminium, with a plastic spring handle mechanism.|
|Some pick-up tools come with a cushioned rubber handle. This helps improve the grip of the tool and also helps the tool not to slip if the user’s hands are wet.|
