Outline

Long trash tong enable easy pick up with your back keeping upright. On the other hand, long trash tong might be heavier, twisted easily and troubled for picking up. We have designed the handle and joint separately to make it strong enough to avoid any twist or bending. Aluminum construction ensures lighter weight for its size.

Evaluation

This tong-type trash picker has gone through multiple updates to significantly improve upon the existing products. First of all, because the body is made of aluminum, it is lightweight compared to the previous steel model. Using polyurethane to connect the existing parts has reduced the development costs and kept the overall costs to a minimum. All the parts easily come apart for proper yet effortless disposal at the end of its life cycle. The use of polyurethane parts together with the aluminum body is an excellent idea that forms the central feature of the product. The stylish design resulting from the simple combination deserves a praise. We are anticipating further development by enabling the replacement of polyurethane parts.
