PaintStick makes painting fun, easy
Make painting easier, faster, neater and more enjoyable with Black & Decker’s new PaintStick EZ-Twist. Forget paint trays and rollers as well as the ladder.
The EZ-Twist lets you paint an entire room in one-third the time and you will look like a pro. The twisting action allows you to control the amount of paint released — a small twist for precision painting or a bigger twist to cover a larger area quickly.
You simply fill the PaintStick from the can and a single fill paints an entire 8-by-8-foot area without reaching, bending or climbing on a ladder. You can even paint ceilings without worrying about getting paint on you or the floor by snapping on the spatter shield.
The PaintStick comes with everything you need, except paint, including: PaintStick EZ-Twist, snap-on roller cover, spatter shield, paint can cover and fill tube.
The system retails for $30.
New tool lets you ‘Stick’ it to stain
Taking the ease of design of the PaintStick outdoors is the new StainStick. Staining a deck on your hands and knees is messy and a real pain. With the StainStick, it’s a simple one-step process.
Just fill the StainStick with stain or sealers directly from the can. A single, 18-ounce fill will cover a 6-by-6 foot area. It works with virtually all stains and sealers.
With its 4-foot extension handle and pivoting pad you can reach virtually any surface. The universal joint allows staining from different angles and the wraparound pad and locking base make it easy to stain between boards.
Another reason it is the ultimate staining tool for decks is its brushlike applicator, which brushes the stain into the decking as suggested by stain manufacturers.
The StainStick retails for $20.
