The Hand and Stand magnifier offers the versatility of handheld or hands free use. The 2x glass lens with built-in 10x spot magnifier increases the SG-16’s range of use while providing maximum durability. The ergonomic SureGrip™ handle adds comfort while in handheld use or easily transition to hands free use by extending the metal drop-down legs (stows easily in handle during handheld use). The rectangular shape of this magnifier is designed specifically with reading in mind. The SureGrip™ rubberized handle is mounted at an angle for additional comfort while providing a more natural viewing position. The variable range of use of the SG-16 while in the stand position is great for threading needles, removing splinters or any time when two hands are needed. This magnifier is perfect for those with limited hand strength who also want the durability of a glass lens. Includes a soft zippered case for protection between uses.
