This brilliant new Canadian invention is a must-have for your home (and the reason might surprise you). Already 60,000 sold and counting!
Have you ever bought something on a whim, only to realize later how smart of a decision it was?
That’s what happened when I bought ODii for my family.
I first saw it on Facebook when my friend Robby said it was “the most useful purchase he’s made in a long time.”
Not only that, the comments on his post said more of the same:
“Dude! We love ODii too. Jessica and I both have them in our cars and at home and use them almost every day. Such a great find!”
As the man of the house, I’m always searching for new tools and gadgets that make life a little easier for my family and I.
Whether it’s unclogging drains, fixing a simple car problem, catching spiders or bugs in the house, or having to fish a toy car out from under the furniture for a crying 3-year old (looking at my youngest as I type this) – I’m all for anything that makes fixing any problem, easier and faster.
Since a few of my friends had purchased ODii and had a great experience (plus it was pretty inexpensive), I decided to give it a try. What did I have to lose?
Before I share my full experience, here’s exactly what it is…
At first glance, ODii looks like something out of a spy movie (it’s really freakin cool).
It’s got an 19-inch extendable and bendable metal claw, a 23-inch detachable magnetic rod, and an ultra-bright LED flashlight – all things MacGyver or 007 might use on a regular day.
In reality, it’s something much more practical. ODii was made for one simple reason – to make grabbing hard-to-reach things (and nasty stuff you don’t want to touch) fast and easy.
From the no-man’s land between your car seats, to behind/under your bed or dresser, to that box at the very top shelf of the closet, ODii makes getting things in tough spots a breeze.
While ODii may look like a crazy spy tool, it’s REALLY simple to use – there’s no assembly required, and you can use immediately, right out of the box.
When you want to pick something up, you just extend the claw all the way and you’re ready to grab!
Spoiler alert: it’s really freakin cool and SO helpful!
The first thing I noticed about it was how easily it snagged all types of things.
ODii’s special four-pronged claw is really a wonder. It’s precise enough to grab tiny things in tight spaces (like a ring that slips down the drain), but also sturdy enough to grab and hold larger items up to 10 pounds (like the edge of a phone between the seats in your car)!
Most of those pick-up tools you see on commercials are spring-loaded, which means they not only grab everything the same way, they’re super fragile and weak.
With ODii, you can actually change the grip strength, depending on the weight of whatever you’re lifting.
You can easily adjust it so that it’s tight enough to grab something fragile – or give it enough hold to pick up a pair of jeans without slipping.
The kids and I actually had lot of fun testing it out around the house – small picture frames, cups, change from under the couch….even picked up a jacket that fell off the hanger lifted pretty easily.
Here’s a video of my son easily grabbing his toy that flew underneath the oven (before ODii this would have taken an hour to get).
ODii is also the perfect length. I appreciate the fact that it extends long enough to reach behind furniture and in crevices – which means there’s very little bending or stretching required to grab phones, remotes, keys and other things that slip behind/under the couch.
ODii’s magnet and light are also very handy. The detachable and extendable 23-inch magnetic wand is a HUGE advantage when pulling out or grabbing anything metal like keys, phones, pots and pans, coins, etc…
And this isn’t some wimpy refrigerator magnet we’re talking about here…ODii’s magnet can attract and hold objects as heavy as 2 pounds!
Oh, and another plus…. It folds up really well so it’s very easy to store. It tucks nicely in our kitchen drawer, my toolbox, and glove compartment, so it’s there when we need it and out of the way when we don’t
To say I’m satisfied with my ODii is an understatement. I’ve already used it for so many things around the house and in the car, that it’s paid for itself 10x over.
It’s also very well made and sturdy, which was also surprising, given how affordable it is and how often we use it.
My wife loves it so much, she bought an extra one for the mini-van and also uses it all the time to fetch toys, dropped snacks and more.
You can get the ODii Grabber Gadget at their official website here. Make sure you use that specific link to ensure you get the original, patented version.
There are a lot of counterfeit products out there that are cheaply made and can cause more harm than good.
UPDATE: I just noticed that ODii is now offering an amazing deal on their website. You can now get one FREE when you buy 2 and get FREE Shipping too!
It’s great having one in your car, at home and even at work. They also make great gifts!
