Andy, I just looked at them at Harbor Freight and they had them for $1.99. Pretty inexpensive.
My best friend just had double cataract surgery and couldn't bend over or lift much. She bought a couple at Harbor Freight to keep at both ends of her house.
I have had one for years that I use to get seldom-used items off the upper shelves of the pantry and in our closets. They're darn handy little gadgets.
