[i]The reach aid, sometimes known as the "swizzle stick," is a short adjustable bar with a multipurpose end effector that is used to actuate controls that are out of the reach of seated crew members. The reach aid is used to push in and pull out circuit breakers and move toggle switches. It may be used during any phase of flight, but is not recommended for use during ascent because of the attenuation and switch-cuing difficulties resulting from acceleration forces.[/i]
