Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MGD Very Good
I used this primer last night. I'm painting an old stained and lacquered armoire and I didn't want to have to sand before priming. The can does say to sand and prep properly but I previously tested on a spot and it held great. I did make sure the surface was clean and free from dust and oil.
I was using an airless sprayer so I thinned this with water. This stuff is very very thick... It's a little tricky to get the consistency right. There are no thinning guidelines on the can so I was just winging it. It did cover really well and it turned out very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tvs75 Excellent Cover Up, Great Adhesion
This is as good as any other product on the market and in my opinion ... even better! I used this to cover a light coat of paint in one instance and it worked great. On the same project, it was used on wood trim (painting the house) and it gave great adhesion to the fresh coat of paint. In the end, where i thought I would do two coats, was able to do it in one. Easy application. Made for better paint coverage. And excellent hider of undercoats.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jn55 This product is a must have when painting
I used the gripper on wood, stucco, and drywall and works better than amazing, fills in cracks in stucco and wood and keeps the paint color even, I have told everybody I know about the gripper. Well worth the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momof2 great purchase for priming laminate pressboard cabinets
I only sanded down the rough edges of the cabinets not the whole thing only because it is pressboard. I tried the 123 primer and it was thin going on so I didn't like that.This stuff is thick which helps it stick better and goes on great considering I didn't sand all that glossy stuff off the cabinets. After the primer, I painted over it with a semi gloss paint. I put the primer on with a brush to give a wood grain look then used a foam roller to apply another coat and then the paint. I used 2 layers of primer and paint since it was kitchen cabinets and I wanted to make sure no water gets through. The cabinets are easily wiped off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by James Do not buy, the paint peel off my front door after only 6 month.
I sand down my front door almost to bare wood and used Gripper Primer as base to hide imperfection and hope give top layer paint more gripper. After 6 month, the paint is peeling off.
Uploaded picture shows peel off but was only after putting on another layer of paint so you would not see the white primer. Basically I have to paint it again after weather warms up. I still have 90% of gal still left which I intend to paint my window trim. Looks like I have to throw away. Completely waist money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheGardener Gripper is THE BEST!
I use Gripper as an under painting for both home indoor and exterior painting. It is an excellent primer/sealer that lasts. Thick as a brick and great coverage. I also use it for priming wood refinishing projects before I paint the final color. I wouldn't use any other primer...and I've been painting and refinishing for years. I've included a photo of a refinished dumpster find. Now...it's a treasure chest!
