A very useful tool for the elderly or anyone else who has difficulty bending over is a "Bowls and Jack" lifter. The use is self-explanatory but the tool is available in 2 forms - a screw-together, three part version and a collapsible version.
The lifter has two parts to the lifting piece - there is a smaller hole nearer the handle for lifting Jacks and smaller bowls (such as carpet bowls) and the outer part for lifting normal bowls.
These should fit into most larger bowls bags and work with any size of standard bowl.
Please note this product will not work with Crown Green Jacks.
