    This is a great tool that no painter should be without. I painted the interior of my new home with this product and I wouldn’t be without one ever again.

    Helpful Tips:

    If you are getting paint on the ceiling just trim off the top bristles with a pair of sharp scissors, just the bristles not the plastic.

    If you paint you ceiling first then overlap onto the wall about ¼ inch. With the modified pad you will leave a 1/16 line at the top of the wall and this looks great.

    Use a paint brush to apply paint to the pad, never dip the pad into the paint. Place the paint in the center of the pad with the brush and then swirl the pad on the wall to get the pad completely covered. This will keep paint off the wheels and sides.

    If painting baseboards use a drywall knife on top of the baseboard to give the wheels a place to ride. Use an almost dry pad so the paint won’t run. It will take two coats. Wipe your drywall knife off after every move.

    After completing a run go back and feather the outer edge with the pad so you will not see the trim line after you roll the rest of the wall.

    Does a great job IF USED PROPERLY, August 7, 2013

    Do not pay attention to the bad reviews. This product has a small learning curve only because it is completely different than what people expect who have only used brushes. Let me give you some tips and you will be edging perfect edges and complete the job in one pass instead of multiple coats as you would with a brush.

    1) do NOT dab this in paint. Use a brush to load the pad. Do not load all the way to the edges or you WILL get it on the wall where you don’t want it to go. Once it is on the surface, the paint will spread through the pad and work like it is supposed to.

    2) Slow and steady!!! Take your time and work the product slowly along the area you are wanting to trim. It holds a lot of paint and will be able to do a good job in a long line if you just have patience.

    3) When you place it on the wall, move it in both directions about an inch one or two times. This will allow the paint to distribute evenly among the small bristles and give good cohesion to the wall.

    I have used this product time and time again. Granted, the first time I used it I had to learn its little quirks, just as any product, but now I would not paint without one. For those who say that you should learn to use a brush like a real painter would… remember, a real painter had to LEARN to use a brush to cut in, it didn’t come naturally. This product is no different. There are many people who try to use a brush to cut in and do a horrible job, but there are no bad reviews on brushes because the person using it wasn’t that great. But the brush doesn’t get blamed for a user not knowing how to use it!!! The bad reviews of this product are only because the person didn’t learn how to use it properly first.

    When I looked at this cheap little plastic gizmo, I didn’t have high hopes, but I thought it was worth the risk at such a reasonable price.

    When I put it to use, all doubts faded. It made edging fast and, dare I say, Fun. This cut the time of the painting project in half. No taping required(except on our baseboards, which are too narrow for the wheels to rest on.) Ceiling edging and window edging were a snap. A quick follow-up with the roller and you’re done.

    Don’t dip it too far in or you’ll get paint on the tracking wheels. Scrape or brush off some of the excess after dipping. No instructions came with the product, nor did a paint pan. I used a small plastic dish.

    Great invention.
