This tool works best for paint brushes that have a flat vs. rounded handle and that can slide all the way into the holder. Any handle thicker than 1/4" to 5/8" does not fit properly and can slip out of position while painting.

With the right paint brush, this is a great tool.

I have been painting for twenty years and this tool is very frustrating. The wing nuts never hold while I am painting and cutting in. It is always slipping out of place. Putting the brush in and pulling the brush out is very difficult as well. I do not recommend this product.

Compared to the price at my local Lowes, Amazon had a good deal on these.

The tool is built to last. It's built with sturdy materials through out. The metal parts of the tool are mostly made out of thick gauge steel with the exception of the brush's clamp section where flexible steel is used.

The tool consists of an 'arm' with 2 'articulations'. One of the 'articulations' houses the brush's clamp section. The other 'articulation' consists of the tool's handle.

The section of the tool that secures the brush consists of an upper clamp, and a lower clamp. To insert brushes, the brush's handle needs to be sled inside the upper clamp, and then 'locked' to the tool by twisting the brush right before inserting the bottom of the brush's handle in the lower clamp.

The angle of the brush can be set by adjusting the tool's articulations by means of a couple of heavy duty wing nuts.
The joints of both 'articulations', have notches on them to fine tune the angle of the brush really well. The opposite side of the joint connecting the tool's handle has a round shaped 'lump' that needs to contact the notches on the opposite side.

I improved the contact between the 'lump' and the notches by using a metal file to 'square' the 'lump'. Shur-Line should pay attention to the quality control; before I modified the lump, the joint connecting the tool's handle would slip, and had to be constantly readjusted. I gave it 4 Stars.

The tool is very convenient, as it can be threaded to an extension pole, preventing the need of having to climb a ladder to paint corners or making cuts. This tool is a much better option compared to similar tools that are mostly made out of plastic.

I had to do cutting in over a stairway and wanted to minimize the amount of time I spent on an extension ladder on the stairs. I am a do-it-yourselfer NOT a pro. I ran into a spot where I was scared to death to set up the ladder (no escape plan if the ladder moved) and so my wife found the brush extender on amazon and said it had good reviews. Out of frustration I ordered it thinking that it was likely a waste of money (at least it wasn't pricey). I was sure that my hands weren't steady enough to cut in a high ceiling using the brush extender and a pole. I tried getting the tough spots again today using this product and was very impressed by two things: 1) that my hands were steady enough to use this product on the end of an extension pole, and 2) I didn't get any paint on the ceiling and made a very nice cut in. Seeing the very good results went against everything that I was expecting with this product. I highly recommend it to avoid needing tall ladders.

The product is simple to use. I have a Purdy cut-in brush with a somewhat flattened handle that snapped tightly into the brush extender. It is very seldom that an inexpensive product like this impresses me. My only suggestion would be to practice a little bit before trying to cut in just so that you get comfortable with the extension rod and the angles that you set on this product.

I bought this tool to paint a tall stairway that I can't really reach without a ladder. I also needed to repair the tape between my wall and ceiling and was hoping this tool would help, it did! I was able to hook my utility knife to this unit (although that wasn't a great fit) to help cut down my old tape. The tool was a good fit with the drywall knife for applying the mud. I was able to put pretty good pressure on the knife with a 5 foot pole with no slippage. The unit is adjustable for angle and rotation. This is a very handy tool, and a great investment.

While this product can be difficult to use, it is well made and gets the job done. The difficulty in use is not due to product design as it is difficult to paint along a ceiling with a brush on the end of a pole. Due to the design of our house, this was the only option that we had to paint a section of ceiling. This does not replace getting up on a ladder to paint the ceiling line, it is only for areas that are not accessible by ladder

This "broken arm" as it is called in our area is WONDERFUL! You can reach and twist, and turn the brush so easily to another direction. It is also so very easy to remove a brush and change to another of better size or width simply pull it out, and push in another, yet it doesn't twist on you while being used, I love that is secure! It is capable of adding an extension for height.

I used this to cut in on a 15 feet ceiling that i did not have a sufficiently tall ladder for.

I used a 2 1/2 " Purdy brush (flat handle) with relative ease. The reach was about 6 feet. The most difficult aspect was dipping the brush into the paint tray (from atop the ladder) and the slow swing / movement to the ceiling. It was a slow process, but once i got it on the edge..control was good and the cut in (Sand dollar to Ceiling white) was clean. I had thought about renting a taller but for the price, it seemed like a good option. Very satisfied. Don't think you could use this where you need to exert force or a large brush, there was a little of slop in the wing nut. For the job..it was fantastic.
