OK this is a cheap brush comb and you probably would like to have one off the shelf that lasts forever, but recognize that few people bother to clean brushes correctly so there is not a lot of demand for brush combs I don't suppose.
I bought this one, spent some time tuning it up and dunking the handle in some spar varnish and the teeth are now all secure. It should last until I lose it.
I suppose I could wish there were a better one available, but I'm not inclined to spend more than 5.00 for a brush comb, so this is what I get.

Bought one and the teeth fell out. Returned it and I realized all of the ones on the peg were already splitting. Very cheap softwood used for the handles. I think the free paint stir sticks are better lumber!

Online description says 21 teeth -- picture and product have only 18. Had to sort through store stock to find one that did not already have missing teeth already loose inside the bubble package. Have used mine about half a dozen times over two months. After second time 2 teeth fell out. After a later use 3 more fell out. After last use 8 more fell out ! Now left with 3 teeth at one end and 2 at the other end !

It works fine. If your brushes need to be cleaned, especially at the heel, this will do the job. It is also good to use these for normal day to day cleaning so the heel of the brush does not get caked up with solidified paint.
But, this brush comb is just okay. I have had ones in the past that had more teeth that were maybe one wire gauge smaller, for me, that worked better. Of course I lost the last good one I had and I have not been able to find a new one like it.
On the upside, so far this one is not losing any teeth. The grip is also a bit larger than ones I have had in the past which I feel is more effective and safer.
If your brushes are really gunked up I recommend getting a heavy duty wire brush with stainless steel bristles to go along with this. Sometimes a good soak in some brush cleaner is needed too. Soak it, use the comb to lossen up the bristles, use the wire brush to remove smaller bits of paint, rinse (according to the brush cleaner's directions), comb it out again. Repeat as needed.
If you have a good brush that works for you, it's worth the effort to clean and / or restore it. Brushes are not all the same of course.

This comb lost 3 or 4 teeth when using it for the first time. Not well made at all.
