Tailgating games are as much of a part of tailgating as are grills and the food you serve. Washers is an extremely popular tailgating game but there are some hazards to playing washers while tailgating. Retrieving errantly thrown washers or just the constant bending over and picking up the washers that did land in game box can be back breaking. I know a lot of tailgaters that choose not to play washers strictly because they have back problems. I recently discovered a new product that will have those that have sworn off washers in the past, playing washers again. It’s called Willy Washers Pick-Em-Up Stick and Caddy.
Willy Washers is a retractable, magnetic stick that retrieves washers without having to bend over or get on your knees. The stick extends to about 30″ and easily picks up washers with its magnetic tip. The caddy portion of the Willy Washers will hold your washers tightly when not in play. It also retracts up small enough to fit in your game box when not in use. Another cool feature is the hook on the back of Willy Washers allows you to hang it from your back pocket, off your belt loop, a nearby fence, car door handle, etc. and stays easily within arm’s reach. The magnet on the end of Willy Washers is plenty strong too.
I was sent a sample of the Willy Washers Pick-Em-Up Stick and Caddy and tested it out for myself. I was impressed by the strength of the magnet and how much weight it could handle. As you can see from the photos below, I was able to pick up a pair of pliers and a hammer using Willy Washers.
As you can see in the photos, Willy Washers can be customized with sticker kits that you choose. The sticker kits available include, Athletic Willy, Chillin Willy, Patriotic Willy, Racing Willy, Surfer Willy or Just Plain Willy. The sticker kit of your choice is included with your order of a Willy Washers. You apply the decals on Willy wherever you like. For my sample I chose Athletic Willy that has all kinds of sports images and sayings. Take a look at their video of Willy Washers in action.
I would highly recommend Willy Washers to any tailgater that likes to play washers and wants an easier way to pick up thrown washers. Now you don’t have to dread if a washer rolls under a car. Get a Willy Washers and you can grab the washer without having to crawl on your hands and knees on a dirty parking lot.
