How the Corner Ease Works:
Many attempts have been made to create a corner roller that really works. None have succeeded until Corner Ease was developed and introduced. Corner Ease has been proven by thousands of professionals under a wide variety of applications. Corner Ease is not a gimmick, but a proven tool developed by professional painters. When the tool is loaded correctly, Corner Ease has been successful 100% of the time.
How does Corner Ease do Corners 10 to 50 times faster than a brush, work for a wide variety of corner/crevice and flat space applications, go up to 60 linear feet with one paint load and still provide the professional finish of the highest quality roller or brush? The secret is the System of several proprietary, Patent Pending design and process elements that work together to make this the fastest and most versatile hand tool ever made.
Saves Time & Money – Corner Ease will do the job in at least one tenth the time vs. a brush. This is not a gimmick but a professional painters’ tool proven by thousands of professional painters. Corner Ease pays for itself in less than 15 minutes and saves over $100/hour in labor costs. Corner Ease will paint an 8 ft. corner reliably in 3 seconds and can go for up to 60 linear feet on one load vs. 37 loads for a brush. More
Versatility – Corner Ease is 3 tools in one – A corner/crevice tool, two 2-inch flat rollers and a brush. Corner Ease can handle jobs for fine finish interiors or exteriors. Corner Ease can do Corners, Interior Trim & Molding, Lap Siding, Apply (Joint Compound) Mud to Dry Wall Corners, Gutters & Fascia, T1-11, Conduit pipe, Panel Doors, Door Jambs, Stucco, Cinder Block, Dry Wall Corners and much more. More
Professional Quality Results – Because of the unique Corner Ease system design, surfaces painted will match a tight professional 1/4” to 3/8” stipple eliminating “picture framing” when you are rolling an entire room. The 100% Lambswool design utilizes open fibers that lay down to make a beautiful finish. Fine finish brush or roller interiors can be handled beautifully with a perfect match using stipple or brush appearance. More
Improved Safety and Ergonomics - With Corner Ease your ladder work is drastically reduced, minimizing accidents and L & I Claims. The Corner Ease is easy to use. Ergonomics are much improved when using Corner Ease vs. a brush requiring much less effort and stress on the body, arms and wrists. More
How to Load and use the Corner Ease- See video
Proper Loading of the Corner Ease Tool is Critical for a Successful Paint Job. If done properly you will have a high quality job every time – Guaranteed!
Preparing the Wool Cover Properly:
Water Based Paints – De-lint the wool cover with tape and moisten the cover with water, spinning out the excess water thoroughly.
Oil based Paints – Leave Corner Ease dry
Enamel/Epoxy – Thoroughly De-lint the wool cover with very sticky tape (duct tape). Other suggestions include washing the wool cover in a washer prior to use or use it on a latex job and thoroughly clean the cover prior to Enamel use.
Use The Corner Ease 5-Gallon Bucket Grid in a 5-Gallon Bucket -Important -The grid concentrates paint in the longer center wool fibers and minimizes excess paint on the shorter side fibers. This provides a long distance tool while avoiding fat edges and accomplished a professional tight stipple. Not using the grid will cause sloppy paint application.
Note: Do not use standard non-Corner Ease 5-gallon bucket grids. They will not work!! They force paint out of the Corner Ease. The Corner Ease Grid System is designed to force paint into the wool fibers and into the center, longer fibers.
Load The 5 Gallon Bucket with 1-2 Gallons of Paint
Put Paint behind the Top of the Grid so the Grid Sticks to the Side of the Bucket – The easiest method is to just dip the top of the grid into the paint and then place the top of the grid against the side of the bucket. Always load by rolling downward. Rolling upward will break the paint seal.
Never Dunk!!! – Use the paint grid always as noted above. If you dunk, the job will be sloppy with fat edges and disappointing results
Loading Corner Ease the 1st Time – This will take around a minute. Use small, circular strokes as you lap up paint using the grid. Roll downward contacting the grid until touching paint then come outward and upward, then down again in circular strokes until a broad saturated band of paint is accomplished around the circumference of the roller cover. This is the same process used to load a 9” roller using a standard 5-gallon bucket grid. You will note very little paint is on the shorter side fibers. As you paint, the paint will migrate to the shorter fibers for a tight, professional stipple.
Note: If the paint goes on with gaps and holidays, you have not loaded the tool completely
On your very first load with your new Corner Ease DO NOT STOP rolling until the cover no longer lays down paint – This will make you aware of the amount of paint your Corner Ease tool holds and the distance you can cover. Also check the stipple in 10ft increments so you can determine how to control your stipple
How Much Paint to Load for different jobs
60 Ft of Corners – Heavy Load.
20-30 Ft of Corners at a time – Medium Load – but make sure you load enough or it will leave holidays
T1-11 – Heavy Load. Load as much as possible so you can create a bead of paint that moves up the channel as you roll upward
Interior Molding, Recessed Door, Wood Trim – Small-Medium Load – but make sure you load enough or it will leave holidays
Stains – Small Load (Make sure you follow directions for enamel/epoxy above)
