I dont normaly write reviews but I had to on this product. We have never had any edger work as nice as this one did. Easy and fun to paint. I know fun to paint?, not two works that go tograther. Just remember when doing trim board at floor level and the pad is being held upside down, dont have too much paint on the pad or it will not work like it should. I got into a system of pulling lever back when I removed from wall and the pushed lever back into place when I removed fron paint pan. When you purchase one you will understand what I am talking about. I especially loved the pad removal botton. I did not have to touch the wet paint pad for clean up or changing colors.
This corner painter tool works great. I lack patience (especially when painting) so this was a life saver and did the job well. Just keep it clean as you work. If the rollers get paint on them the device won't work. I used a smaller brush to brush the paint onto the corner edger sponge instead of dipping it into the paint. Also, the felt sponge material on this is a little flimsy but you can purchase refills which I would suggest 1 for each room. I used mine for 3 rooms and 2 closets and it was spent. You can clean the sponge many times though so if you're careful and clean up frequently you can extend the life of this thing for as long as you need.
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use
This gave me perfect edges and saved the misery of taping. I'm an amateur painter just learning, and this made my edges look like a pro did them. As others have advised, I load it with a brush. I had to go over some edges a couple of times, but it sure beats taping. Try it, for the price, you can't go wrong.
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Use
I am glad I discovered this, even after I had already painted 3 rooms! I love it! Painting the trim killed by legs and back, but not anymore. It made painting the edges a breeze. With this product you cannot be heavy handed. You have to be careful to only dip the pad in the paint and rub some of the excess off on the side of the paint tray. If you do get some on the rollers you will get it on the trim, but no worries. Just get a wet rag and wipe it off. It is so much faster than using a brush and you can't beat the price. Even my husband was empressed as he watched me paint! Highly recommend.
The edger is ok if your walls and ceilings are perfect.. It worked sometimes but was a lot of trouble to keep the rollers from getting paint on the rollers. Found it easier to paint the edges freehand.
This product worked great when painting around the door frame. I was delighted to have this product as the edges were perfect. Unfortunately, I live in a home built in 1960 and the patches along the ceiling or wall are not perfect. Hence, this product was not useful when I was painting the wall that was 90 degrees to the ceiling. I would get paint on the ceiling when I was painting the wall's edge with this product. So it did not save me time for the wall/ceiling area.
TIP: when spreading the paint on the edger's pad, it would be best to flip the edger's rollers up. Then when ready to paint with the edger, flip the rollers back down. If paint gets on the rollers, you will be spreading the paint on the ceiling/wall/ etc. that does not need paint. Instructions on the carton are not that great. The instructions recommend that one allow the edger and its pad to float on top of of the paint that is in one's paint tray. I found this to leave too much paint on the pad and the rollers would end up with paint on them. Instead, I used a paint brush to add paint to the edger's pad.
I have used this particular brand of edger before and was very disappointed. The new design (retracting rollers, swivel head, etc) is infinitely better. Doors, windows, 90/45 degree ceiling and even base molding was a breeze. I just painted a 19X12X10 room with two doors and and 4 windows in under 3 hours without a single inch of tape.
To be totally forthright, I still prefer to "load" the edger with a paint brush instead of dipping it into a tray as a precaution to keeping the rollers clean. But all said, I was VERY IMPRESSED with the new product!!
Pros: Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Use
This product is so impressive. I was skeptical at first, but the reviews sounded good so I tried it out. I used this on a hallway with five doorways and it never made a mess. Load the paint pad with a brush and you'll have a perfect line. If you can't make this product work for you, hire a painter.
I hate painting ceilings.. its very difficult for me to get a straight line along the wall on the ceiling. Professional painter I am not, (free hand cutting in and getting a straight line is not for me)so I purchased this tool. It works very well. You do have to be mindful that when you reload the paint that you pull the wheels back every time, otherwise, paint will get on the wheels and of course on the wall where you do not want it. Good product. (I do still tape off as well though). Makes painting go a little faster with less mistakes to fix later.
Pros: Even Application, Easy Instructions, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use
I had high hopes for the next generation of this tool, which now includes a retractable plastic guide along the top edge, supposedly to maintain a sharp paint line. But alas, when using it along my ceiling, paint still seeped beyond the guides and onto the ceiling. The old version, with wheels only and no guides, is not perfect but it works better than this.
This little tool saved me tons of time. After painting one room and edging free hand, I realized there are quite a few things I am good at, but edging is not one of them. I lost all hope, I was completely frustrated and wanted to give up painting the rest of the house that so badly needed painted ( I had just bought a fixer upper). I searched online and found this little beauty. I watched a couple youtube videos on usage and away I went. From there I looked forward to painting the rest of the house and my edge lines were straight and beautiful. Painting is fun....now....that I have this to edge with! I would highly recommend to anyone that struggles with their edge lines even a little.
Pros: Even Application, Good Coverage, Easy to Use, Looks Great
I was spending hours doing cut in and doing a pretty sloppy job because my hands weren't steady enough with the brush. I bought this tool on a whim and didn't have much faith that it could be the miracle I needed - but it was. I was cutting in rooms at a fraction of the time I used to take using a brush, and the job was much neater. I actually used far less paint as well. As long as you don't load too much paint on the pad, and always keep the paint off the black clips at the top - you won't get paint on the ceiling, doors, windows, etc. This was worth it 100%. Made a tough job much easier. Some rooms I found that a second coat was necessary, but since it was so fast I didnt really mind.
I recamend using tape, Frog tape never bleeds sticks good and leaves nice straight lines on door and floor trim, Evan if you have to tape your ceilings.Those little wheels on this item always seem to get paint on them and you always have to brush down the outer edge when using this paint pad

Review 19 for 6.8 in. x 3 in. Pro Paint Edger
Get the non pro one
PostedMarch 28, 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
The pro version of this tool is far worse then the non pro one. The top guards on this pick up paint very easy so you have to sit there and clean it off all the time.
