Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  What does the CE marking indicate?
A.  The Colroy retriever has been independently assessed as meeting all the European Union health and safety standards applying to walking sticks.

Q.  I have a touch of arthritis in my hands. Will that make it difficult for me to use the reacher mechanism?
A.  No. The operating slide-button has been specially designed to require only a small amount of pressure and the jaws are spring loaded so they automatically close and grip the object.

Q.  What should I do if the reacher mechanism fails?
A.  Under normal use, it won't. The components have been carefully selected and stringently tested.

Q. Why is the grabber on the handle?
A. The Colroy Retriever was deliberately designed so that you’re not picking up pills or spectacles with the ‘dirty’ end of a walking stick.
