Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mike1529 Great Time Saver
We just painted our entire house. Basement and two floors. Didn't tape anything. Great product. Took a bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aayan Great for door/window trims
This edge roller is a great time saver when you are painting around the moldings, door trims and window frames. I recently painted my entire town home and used it around the windows and door trims. You have to make sure that the tiny edge brush is touching the surface you are painting especially around the window frames otherwise the edgeâs thin end might put a crack in the caulking. You can change the direction of the edge/roller by rotating it to the right or the left. It turned out to be a great little helper or me.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Raju Worst thing did not ever work the first time
Bought it with great hopes.It started leaking from the joint between the paint tube and the thumb trigger the first time I filled it up and tried to use it. Not sure what would be wrong with a brand new product. returning it back to where I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gagnew2 OUTSTANDING!
My late brother was a professional painter. He always cautioned against "gimmick" tools - stating that they never worked. Usually he was right. Not in this case. I took a chance and was overwhelmingly surprised This roller provides me with the ability to do a high quality job while saving me hours of work. My expectations have been exceeded by far. Well done!.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by freelyelee Good self-contained tool for edging
Confession: I'm a lazy painter. It's not that I won't paint things, it's just that I won't prep the space. Ever. Only after I've botched a job do I pull out the painters tape, and then it's too late.
Project: I've been putting off a bedroom paint job for a while because I didn't feel like taping out the windows, baseboards and molding. This tool was the perfect opportunity to tackle the project.
Overview: The tool is 17.5 inches long with a 3 inch roller. Easy to handle, lightweight (even once paint is loaded in the handle) and really sturdy. It comes with a "fill adapter" which is used to pull paint from the paint can into the handle of the tool.
Performance: I've used cheaper versions of similar tools in the past. They never seemed to work as advertised: Either the edge wasn't clean enough or the roller would slide or the angle was awkward. Not so with this. I think the difference is due to the edge brush, which helps ensure a sharper edge.
Good to know:
- Is the line as sharp as a perfectly applied piece of painter's tape? Probably not. But, in my case, it's pretty close. I'm a perfectionist and the result was more than good enough for me.
- I found the roller worked better on my slightly rougher, textured walls with matte paint than on the walls previously painted with semi-gloss where it had a tendency to slide. (Other rollers also slide, sometimes you just need a brush!)
