Light duty. Priced appropriately for what it is.
I’ve been looking at these on several other sites for a while now. For the modest cost, I went with this one thinking that it couldn’t be horrible and if it turned out to be a waste, it wasn’t all that much of a gamble.

It works OK, not sure how many pounds it would be rated at. The other telescopic magnetic pick-ups on other sites typically rate their product by the amount of weight it can hold. This one is minimal to be sure, but I was only looking for something that would easily pick up screws and similar small pieces. This will do that but beyond that weight, such as picking up a 10” wrench, I really doubt it.

Here’s how I sum up my impression of this 25” telescopic magnetic pick-up:
Do you remember when you were a kid and had a transistor radio with an extendable antenna? If you were the typical example, the antenna was made of thin gauge metal that bent and broke off easily. I never had a single one that was durable enough to survive for long. That is what this product will remind you of.

If you are careful with no small kids that want to play with it, then you can get some use out of it.
