    Mine is not nearly as fancy! I will get pictures if I remember. I know several people who use store bought boat hooks.

    That's fun to see. My dad just uses a little narrow garden rake. Not as cool but works.

    4 feet long 3/8" dia. Aluminum rod purchased at local hardware store. Bent a hook in one end and threaded the other. Drilled 3/8" hole through 1-1/2" D x 3.5L Aluminum tube. Fed threaded end of rod into the tube, installed one SS nut, fed rod rest of the way through the tube and added second SS nut. Tightened the nuts to act as clamp on the tube wall. Light and works great! I have had this for 9 years.

    the problem with that is every time you need a piece or threaded rod it will get shorter

    Would be very handy for dumpster diving - mine's a broom handle with a hook screwed into one end, couple of hard disk magnets the other!
