Pooper Scooper with a long handle to tackle the worst clean-ups
These are the important features:
- The set is made from aluminium and stainless steel. The handle tube is stainless steel with aluminium for the tray, rake & spade
- The non-stick coating makes it easy to hose off everything to clean.
- A detachable handle on each of the pieces locks into place once it’s assembled. And it’s just as easy to disassemble so you can take with you if you go away with your buddy.
- Hang it up out of the way with the storage clips.
- The manufacturer backs their product with guarantee
Choosing a product from stainless steel and aluminium materials, gives a stronger, rust resistant product. It will last longer longer than plastic, but it’s still lightweight.
The rake works well on grass and dirt, simply rake and collect in the scoop. The spade is good for paving or to clean out the kennel. Just use the hose to clean everything off easily after use.
The clip attachment allows the trio to be stored out of the way in the garage, while still being easily accessible when needed. You’ll always know where they are. No more hunting around the yard trying to remember where you last saw them.
Having said that, if you’re like me, and have left the rake and scoop out on the odd occasion when in a rush, rust isn’t an issue.
If going away the whole unit can be disassembled to take with you. The handles can be separated back into the 3 pieces each for compact packing.
How to assemble the handles on the long handled poop scooper:
When you receive the product the handles are in 3 pieces each. These all fit together and connect with the rake, spade or scooper.
The process: Push in the button, insert the tube into the next tube and when the button springs out from the small hole those 2 pieces have been joined together securely.
Repeat this process for the third piece and then connect to the scooper, rake or spade piece the same way. Repeat this process for the other 2 items.
This is a good product if you’re getting to the stage you just don’t want to have to bend over. This takes pressure off your back. And you’re away from the ‘smelly action’ which we all know isn’t unpleasant.
It’s a that has to be done, so let’s make it as easy as possible.
