3/16" drill bit
small screw & bolt
soldering iron (alternatively blade or knife)
1/2 gallon=1.89 liter plastic container
pole (wood or 1/4 or 1/2 inch pvc)
Alternatively you can use any size plastic container (soda container, milk container, metal coffee container, etc). Two holes were cut, located at the bottom of the container and on the side, to make fruit picking easier at different angles.
Container dimension: 10.5in x 5in x 3.5in
I currently use this to pick persimmons and am very satisfied with the result.
