Gripping a hoover.

Another useful task this tool can help with is holding the handles of a hoover, broom or mop. We hadn't thought of using the gripper tool for this until Janet suggested it!

Holding a glass of wine.

Another very popular use of this tool is to hold a wine glass. Both Alex and Kim have really enjoyed being able to hold a glass of wine again!
