3/4 EMT. Pound flat. Bend 90. One mean grabbing tool.
Can get a flat price of wood that slid up to front of bed.
8' long.

Where did my pic go?

The flattened part will snap off in no time, just bend it 90 and forget about flattening it.

We bent some #4 rebar into a handle on the top (loop) then a hook at the bottom. Ground it down a bit to make a point but nothing too sharp. About 3' tall. We use in to pull up 7x7 mesh when pouring our slabs.

My tape measure, when I drop my speed square through a deck I can pick it up with my tape measure.
I was on the second story decking the floor of a house we built in college, dropped my chalk box all the way to the basement. No stairs built yet, so i fished it with my tape, took like 45 seconds.

Oh it's a great money saver. There are times I'm very high up and the only access under a deck is over a fence down an embankment and through some tumbleweeds. You get good at it.
