Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiA Easy to use and inexpensive
Before puchasing this I have read the reviews and almost changed my mind about purchasing this. But given the cheap price, I decided to give it a try and it worked as it was supposed to. Very easy to use and somewhat holds a lot of paint so you dont need to keep on re-filling. Im not a professional painter, but for DIY painting projects it worked great for my trims.

My experience is like many of the other reviewers, the pad falls off the wand. Home Depot carried a similar product in the past, Padco paint wand, that was better because the pad stayed on the wand.

This looked like a handy little tool, but this is the most aggravation you can find for such a low price. The pad will not stay on. If you apply any slight pressure to get good paint coverage, the pad slips off and then you have a mess. There is a little raised lip that should hold the pad, but it falls short of the job. Its not worth the money to stand in the return line, but i think I must return it just on principle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyHomeOwner Handy Little Paint Pad
I have bought this small pad for years and used it for trim and touch up work. I use it ON stucco, bricks, paneling, doors, drywall, and metal. And, I use it FOR baseboards, door and window trim, and painting the wall up close to a door frame and fireplace bricks . This small pad was not designed to do the big projects a roller or brush does. If used properly, it will work hard and paint smooth. Don't load up the paint or push hard. Wash the pad between jobs and be creative. I noticed that Sure-line has larger pads, a scuff roller, and a Teflon tray...to mention just a few innovative products. I did not rate it a 5-star because the pad can slide off if you push hard...which is no more annoying than a bristle that comes off a brush. I do recommend this paint pad for touch up and trim projects.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Good concept, but poor design
I've used paint pads for many years, and I thought this was just a straightforward trim pad. One fatal flaw, though- they didn't put a little tab to hold the pad in place, so when I was painting trim, the pad repeatedly slid out and hit the dirty floor. After the third time it slid out, I gave up and went back to a brush. A very simple notch or detent to hold the pad in place on the handle would make this a great product. As it is, it's very frustrating.

The pad will not stay in place -- keeps sliding out.
Too bad, because it really applies paint smoothly and evenly if only it would stay together.

I was just painting some doors and trim. These did the trick!
