Four years ago, retired engineer Graham Renny?made a device to help his wife,?Susan, collect horse manure in the paddock of their Herefordshire home without having to use a shovel.

The original scissor-action device was made of broom handles, plywood and nails and it worked extremely well. And not just for collecting horse manure. It helped in the garden for leaf-collecting, grass-cuttings and hedge trimmings.

They took the tool to an attorney, obtained patents and licensed the design to US-based Radius Garden, which has been manufacturing the Gator Grabber since July 2010.

Renny made his debut on the QVC shopping channel last year and sold out of hisentire stock of Gator Grabbers within seven minutes.

The Gator Grabber costs £22.95 plus P&P.
