And easy to store. One of the better pick-up tools we've seen. Folds to just over 16" to store, but locks open at 30" with spring steel arms on an aluminum frame. It has soft, suction-cup-shaped grabbers and big, locking pistol grip. Pretty good gripping capacity too-maybe to 10 lbs or so. Get one for Mom, because at her age she can't reach the things she used to. And then get another one for yourself, because you'll be Mom's age before you know it.
Give your wrist a rest. Very comfortable padded and fairly elastic wrist brace is gray with black trim and has a thumbhole. Works on either hand, as long as they're small/medium. Stick in your thumb and wrap the fabric around until your wrist is happily braced, than slap the hook-and-loop sections together. Measures 2-3/4" wide x 13-1/2" long. Compare our price to drugstore chains and big boxes, and we think you'll like ours.
It's either a telescoping aluminum backscratcher, a fork for people whose elbows don't bend, or a sand rake for miniature Zen gardens. You pick. The 5-draw shaft extends from 6-5/8" to 20-3/8" long, the 5-tine rake is 1-3/16" wide, and it has a pocket clip.
Find out if you are alive, and if so, whether your blood pressure is so low you will tip over when you stand up. This home blood pressure kit includes the usual D-ring cuff, a nurses' stethoscope and full instructions on their use. Not a toy, it is the real thing. Great for monitoring your health and for educational purposes. It is a two-party set, meaning it is most easily used by two people. Anyone want to play doctor?
Bob the Plumber told you it was going to cost $15,000. to remodel your bathroom. Ha! Bob doesn't shop at A.S.&S. For less than the price of a loofah, you can have (4) -- count 'em, (4) -- new towel racks. Your package of (4) 25-3/8" x 9/16" dia rods has (8) 5-1/2" x 2-3/16" x 7/16" thick pre-drilled brackets. Real wood, ready to stain or paint and mount on the wall (hardware not included). Okay, you're down to $14,997.05. Keep shopping!
Just your basic wrist straps with basic clips on the ends. You choose either 1/4" wide x 9" long in black or 1/8" Dia. x 5" long in assorted colors. Perfect for I.D. badges, locker keys, or even hamster leashes.
Or shampoo by the gross, if you have lots
of hair. By the 6-pack, if you wear a buzz-cut. From our AS&S rare
miniature toiletries department, which got them from a defunct hotel,
comes the opportunity to purchase multiple 1-oz bottles of shampoo with a
beguiling, lightly floral scent, in plastic screw-top containers. The
labels read “Institute Swiss,” so they’re international, too, along with
being an airplane-permissible size.
Anodized aluminum channel, 2-5/8" long and just wide enough to hold a 5/8" wide card or tile which is up to about 1/16" thick. It has a spring clip in the channel to secure the card and a pair of "tie tacs" on the back to hold it on your bosom. Flaunt your name, "I Love Minot", "Addicted to Surplus" or whatever message you feel is appropriate in this age of self disclosure. We'll pick at least (2) different colors for you from among black, gold, red, purple, blue and silver.
Cranked-up water heaters mean clean laundry, but risky showers. The 1-1/2” wide x 2” long Scald Guard has a standard 3/4” thread, and screws in between your shower head and water pipe. You decide what “too hot” is, and the adjustable valve reduces the water flow to a trickle when it hits that temperature. Make life safer, especially for the very young and the very old.
