I did this years ago, never thought it was special until someone saw me using it last week and said Wow! I feel a bit silly posting it, but hey, anything that makes work easier is a good thing! I have a broom I really like and didn't want the bristles to get bent. My brooms tended to be leaned in a corner for long periods of time........ so I screwed a cup hook in the top end of the handle and hung it from a nail. Well that had got to be the handiest cuphook in the house. I use it in spring for retrieving the hummingbird feeder lines that went up under the eaves during the winter, same for the seed feeders in the winter. Hanging or taking down Christmas lights? Perfect, just unplug the lights first. Pots and pans way up high above the cabinets? Snag a handle, pull it down and catch it. (NOT recommended for breakables.) Running an overhead extension cord to the coop? No problem, once again, be aware of electricity! It has really been a handy tool, amazes me what I use it for sometimes. It's pretty much an extension of my arm! TaaaaDaaaaaa!
