Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 22, 2010
The "Truck Buddy" would feature a telescopic tool with an easy-to-grip handle and an angled "grabber" located at the other end. The tool would help to eliminate the need to climb in and out of the cargo bed repeatedly, thus minimizing the risk of back strain and injury. The easy to use, compact design would allow for easy storage. The item would be ideal for physically challenged individuals.
The Truck Buddy would consist of a base handle, telescopic pole, hinge and gripping arm. The 5-1/2 inch long arm would be attached to the end of the pole via a hinged connection. The arm would collapse against the handle when not in use. The handle would measure five inches in diameter and six inches high. The tool could measure six feet long when fully extended. The item could be producible from aluminum or stainless steel. Two magnets would be affixed to the side of the handle. A user would retrieve an item from the cargo bed by holding the handle in one hand and extending the pole with the other hand. After the user hooks and pulls the item within reach, he or she would retract the pole back into the handle for convenient storage. The user may attach the tool to the inner wall of the truck bed via the magnets or store the tool inside a cargo pocket located in a van or SUV. A small light-emitting diode may be built into the handle
