The exo-pinchers are mechnical pincers connected to a long, thick robotic arm, which can be extended from the Satellite of Love to grab objects in space. It is controlled by two control sticks attached to a clothing piece resembling football shoulder pads. The exo-pinchers have only been shown in the episode Women of the Prehistoric Planet where Joel Robinson uses them to bring a "doomsday device" inside the SOL.

A similar device referred to as the "manipulator arms" were later used by Mike Nelson in MST3K: The Movie to free the Hubble Space Telescope, which he crashed into shortly before.
