The telescopic pick-up tool is made up of three basic parts: the handle, the telescopic shaft sections and the neodymium magnet end.
Neodymium magnet on a telescopic pick-up tool
All magnetic pick-up tools have a neodymium magnet end to attract ferromagnetic objects. Neodymium magnets are the strongest commercially available magnets, although the magnets in pick-up tools vary in size and strength.
Cushioned handle on a telescopic pick-up tool
Some telescopic pick-up tools have a rubber cushioned handle to provide extra grip in wet or oily hands, however this is not stardard for all telescopic pick-up tools. Others can have plastic or metal handles.
Telescopic pick-up tool shaft
The telescopic shaft has separate metal sections which extend the tool. Different length tools can have a varying number of sections, they are sometimes known by their number of sections. For example, a 7 section pick-up tool.
