Whether you spend a lot of money on brushes and roller covers to achieve a professional finish or you buy inexpensive tools to save on cash you will LOVE this tool. It saves time, money, water, and pays for itself in just a few uses. Simply rinse your brush or roller in the cleaning solution recommended by the manufacturer of the liquid you are using, attach it the spinner, and depress the lever to spin the brush or roller until it's clean and dry. Centrifugal force pushes liquids away from the fibers of your brush or roller ensuring that no residue remains to "harden" the fibers and make them unusable; and because it drys so quickly you can immediately use your tools to continue with another project or color. Designed with high quality durable materials including steel construction with double ball bearings for smooth spinning with little effort, this tool lasts a lifetime with minimal care. Stop buying cheap brushes and rollers that don't provide a great finish or wasting money on expensive brushes that you have to throw away due to dried up paint or stain and use this roller/brush cleaner instead!
The Shur-Line professional paint brush/roller cleaner uses a high-speed spinning action to reduce clean-up time by 50 percent. Other highlights include durable steel construction and dual ball bearings to withstand daily use over the course of many years.See all Product description

The key is to first remove excess paint with a brush comb or roller scraper. Then spin the brush/roller in a bucket of water with the Shur-Line 5200, and follow with a dry-spin in an empty bucket. Repeat until brush/roller is clean and dry. The brushes will then resemble Phyllis Diller's hair-do, so wrap them in a paper towel and return to shape. Brushes and pads will be ready for reuse in about half and hour.
This product doesn't REPLACE typical cleaning, just makes it easier and more effective. I highly recommend the Shur-Line 5200.
I do however find that I often do not use it for my brush because of the amount of effort it takes to open the clamps. Larger roller covers are easy to get on and off, but anything that requires opening the clamps takes some effort. I have had the brush handle slip and my hand go flying up against the edge of the metal. Granted the edge isn't exactly sharp and nothing came of it, but still, made me nervous, came close to clamping my hand as well. Also, it seems to... fray out the edges on the brushes a little. Note that the clamps put enough pressure on your brush handle that it will most certainly leave marks. Some may not like this, so you've been warned! Works great on the rollers. Might work well for when it's cold outside and you would rather wash and spin out your roller inside with a 5 gallon bucket. It is also kind of fun to use (minus the clamps).
Can also be made compatible with mini-roller covers if you are willing to take the time to make an adapter. The mini-roller covers are cheap enough to be considered disposable, but for those interested, I made mine by taking:
(1) a 5/8" x 5/8" square wooden dowel from the local hobby store, and mating it to...
(2) a cheap compatible mini-roller frame that I hack sawed the roller assembly off, the roller assembly being the part of the roller frame that actually holds the roller cover.
Any cheap mini-roller frame that works with your covers should do it, just cut it off before the metal frame arm begins to turn downward. Also, notice that the roller assembly is held in place and will not fall off or anything as a result of cutting it off from the rest of the frame. This will leave you with a roller assembly attached to a short straight metal piece. Simply drill a hole in the square dowel that closely matches the diameter of the straight metal piece. A drill press would be ideal, but a little more effort and a steady hand may yield good results. A small amount of glue should hold the two pieces together well. Remember to try to keep the adapter as short as possible and everything as centered and such as possible. Otherwise the whole adapter will be really unbalanced causing it to not function as smoothly. Cutting and/or sanding down the edges that will be inserted into the clamps will make doing so a bit easier (but not much!).
I may eventually build a better version adapter that makes a quick connect style hookup that works for the mini-rollers as well as brushes. Then I might use the tool more. Until then I doubt I'll use it that often. By no means is this tool a necessity, but some may like it. Enjoy getting your brushes and stuff in the clamps!
Your paint brush will fit into the end and is held securely by the metal teeth. I just keep the water running in our laundry sink and rinse and spin. The paint brushes spin quickly and throw off all the liquid. Just do it a few times and your brushes are clean and dry.
You can also use this to clean the paint rollers. I usually reuse the rollers a few times. The rollers are cleaned and dried just was quickly.
I've found it works best if I have time to let the brush soak in water. I let mine sit in a "Handy Paint Pail" (with a liner for cleaning), which keeps the bristles from resting on the bottom. Much of the latex will float to the bottom.
Putting the brush in the spinner can be a bit tight, and I've pinched my skin before (not too bad). Make sure the brush is well centered, as this greatly effects the spinning action. While pumping up and down works, I've found it works much better to simply make a quick downward push, and let it complete it's spin. It's much more powerful...you'll see the bristles really separate.
Very nice tool.
