    I'VE BOUGHT TWO, AND YES THE CUPS COME OFF EASILLY SO BOUGHT SOME #4 X 5/8" LONG MACHINE SCREWS AND NYLON LOCK NUTS. THESE HELD PRETTY GOOD BUT STILL CAME OFF WHILE PICKING UP TRASH THAT BLEW INTO THE PUMPKIN PATCH. SO I USED REGULAR NUTS AND TOOK MY BALLPEEN HAMMER AND FLATTENED THE END OF THE SCREW THAT PROTRUDED ON THE OUTSIDE/BACKSIDE OF THE CUPS. NOW THEY DON'T EVERY COME OFF. THE TOOL IS GREAT FOR PICKING UP SCREWS, BOLTS AND NUTS I DROP IN THE SHOP AND FOR THE UGLY WATER BUGS THAT GIVE MY WIFE CRAZY.

    My wife bought this to help reach shades that were positioned to high. It worked on the first two shades when she reached for the third shade the rubber cup fell off. The tool would work great if the cups were redesigned to stay on. I will look for another type of tool to use. After reading other reviews outlining the same problem it is obvious the manufacturer doesn't give a damn about fixing the probelem.

    AFTER READING SEVERAL OF THE COMMENTS MADE BY CUSTOMERS/OWNERS OF THIS DEVICE...I FIND I AM NOT ALONE WITH THE PROBLEM OF THE RUBBER CUPS COMING OFF THE PRODUCT. I TRIED GLUE...WORKED FOR A FEW DAYS..THEN THE SAME THING OCCURRED. NOW..THE CUPS ARE MISSING..AND I SUSPECT MY DOG MAY HAVE FOUND THEM AND ABSCONDED TO SOME SECRET HIDING PLACE.

    This is the 4th Goopher I have bought, and this one also has broken. I have glued the suction cups on and on again. The idea of the suction cups are great, but they certainly are not sturdy enough to deal with the simplest of tasks. I would not wast my money on any more as there is a definate design flaw!

    First I want to say I've used/owned at least 4 different brands of grabbers. It had been a couple of years since mine broke. I was disgusted with the poor quality of the last two, I decided to ask for my family's help to get things instead of waste money on a new one. My husband saw the Deluxe Gopher II, which folds/unfolds in the middle to make for more compact storage, and bought it. That was last week. I'm used to not needing the grabber, so I forgot about it. When a plastic wrapped clothing package was delivered on the front porch out of my reach, I thought to get my new grabber. Guess what? It broke as soon as I closed the device onto the plastic. No, the screw didn't just come undone. I'd tightened the wobbly one the day I got it. The darn black suction thing came right off. I didn't even have an opportunity to pull the package toward me. I will never again get a Gopher product! And I'll be sure to let my husband know to avoid Gopher's products too.

    Out of the 15 people I know who ordered these from the US a year ago, all are delighted. They're great for us because we have difficulties reaching and bending due to disabilities and we don't try to lift things that are as heavy as the manufacturer suggests may be possible. Replacing them at any of the medical equipment centers cost more than double for people choosing to buy locally. I'm sure happy with my own.

    Yeah they are junk, but what do you expect for the price. Take out the cr*ppy screw, drill through the black cup and thread a small 4-40 screw with a flat washer and a nylon locking nut. It'll never fall off again! Yes, I am a rocket scientist... I lost the cup off my first one and I returned it to Walmart and got another, let them eat-it for selling this crap! Works fine, just dont pick up heavy items.

    My beef with it is the button that makes it collapse. It doesn't take much to accidentally depress that and then you've lost whatever it was you were picking up. I have not had a suction cup problem, but then I haven't used it much because I find it pretty useless.

    This would be a great tool but the rubber cups fall or break off making the tool useless. If the maker provided extra cups or make them available that would be a plus (but actually the tool needs to be redesigned).

    Shamefully I keep purchasing new units to replace units that break (screws coming off of the frame). Do not purchase without being aware of the product's inferiority.

    Pretty much the same comments as all the rest. The suction cups are junk. For a few cents more they could put a metal screw anchor in the cup and use a machine screw to attach the cup to the grabber. The plastic insert on the suction along with the cheap wood screw is a joke, I guess they don't want their product to last very long thinking you will run out and buy another. WRONG!! I Wont buy another, thank you very much!!!

    I use my gopher pickup and reach a lot...however, like many of the others who have commented...the rubber cups fall off easily and replacement cup are almost non existent. My question is: Is the manufacturer reading these comments and doing something about the problem??????

    The tool is great and very helpful specially when you are short but the black suction cups fall of the screws and makes the tool worthless. When can I buy the replacement for the suction cups, please and thank you.

    Wothless. Used it less than a day before a suction cup was broken. After much glue and improvisation it was back together. Only to have the weak joint break in week two. Wish I had saved my money. Oh. You cannot find repalcement suction cups if you were dying and needed one.

    This product is terrible. I can't believe I wasted my money on it. It was so hard to pick things up, and awkward to bring it to my hand. It takes me around a minute to pick something up. That's just unnatural, you hear? And then my son broke it within a week. The deluxe gopher is worthless.

    I HAVE ALS AND HAVE BEEN IN A WHEELCHAIR FOR OVER ABOUT TWO YEARS. I PURCHASED 7 DELUXE GOPERS AT BED BATH & BEOND. I USE 2 AT MY OFFICE AND 5 AT HOME. ONE RUBBER GRIP CUP ON 5 OF THE UNITS CRACKED AND KEEP FALLING OFF. I WILL ONE ABOUT FOUR TIMES BEFORE IT FALLS OFF. ONE UNIT I HAD TO THROW OUT BECAUSE THE ARM JOINT DISINTERGRATED. THE PODUCT IS VERY HANDT BUT IT FALLS APART
