Touch up decks or railings
If you reach too far to recover a dropped paintbrush or use your grabber to pick up something a few feet away from where you’re standing, you can injure your shoulders, back or hips, or even slip and fall, reveals Gallucci. “To prevent this, keep everything you need within arm’s reach. Try using a tool belt or carpenter’s apron. And, if using a grabber, walk over to the item so it’s by your foot, then grab it.”
Tip! If tools tend to slip out of your hands, wrap them with foam tubing (or several layers of duct tape) to make ’em easier to grasp.
