History’s Most Versatile Tool?

From the beginning of time, mankind has evolved to thrive in our environment. What we lacked in stature, we made up for with tools, and specifically for things outside of our immediate grasp. Some tools are designed for particular jobs, while others can be broadly used to accomplish a myriad of different tasks. Take a moment and do a personal inventory of the tools in your garage or shed. Which would you consider the most versatile multi tool?


Though simple in design, Mr. LongArm can help you overcome numerous obstacles. Prior to R.D. Newman’s invention of the telescopic extension pole (in 1958), people had to grasp, strain and jump for things that were just out of reach. Iron and ceramic were too heavy to use in assisting with any prolonged task. But with the advent of ultra-light materials, such as aluminum and plastics, all of that changed. Now you can work a full day without maneuvering up scaffolding or aching from hoisting up a paint brush taped to a lead pipe.

And this versatile tool doesn’t stop at painting. The truly innovative thing about the original Mr. LongArm is the ability to change tool heads. This allowed one pole to complete a multitude of tasks. With a quick turn of a threaded end you can go from painting a room to dusting a ceiling fan. Or go from staining your deck to washing windows or even a boat or RV.
