in House Painting for the Homeowner Do-it-Yourselfer
Not since the invention of the paint
roller in the 1940ís has there been an innovation in house painting
that makes painting easier for homeowners.
Now, there is a revolutionary new painting tool that not only
makes painting easier, it makes it safer and even fun. Paint
Porter is a new product that has reinvented painting for the
is an ergonomic hands-free paint carrier that provides a patented new
method for painting.
Porter is designed for those who wish to do their own house
painting, but are intimidated by the bulky professional tools that
comprise the majority of the products on the market. Paint
Porter consists of a rectangular bucket with a roller surface,
which is inserted into a porting platform with a hinging and pivoting
mechanism (itís gimbaled like a ships galley to keep it level).
This assembly hangs from a shoulder harness to maintain paint
only inches away, thus maximizing its ergonomic potential.
Ergonomics is the applied science of equipment design intended to
maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort.
Porter offers a unique oblong shaped paint bucket that doubles as
a roller pan, as such, itís compatible with the new lightweight
cartridge rollers on the market. With
Paint Porter, you can
paint the whole house without the need for a paint bucket or roller pan.
Painting with a roller pan and paint can is tedious and
inefficient, as well as unsafe while climbing ladders. A
hands-free paint carrier is long overdue.
Dozens of hands-free paint carriers were patented in the last
hundred years and Paint Porter is the only one designed ergonomically
with the paint carried on the shoulder; a method claim was granted by
the Patent Office for the innovation of carrying paint on at chest
level. Special attention was
paid to make the finished product women friendly, as women are the
fastest growing segment of the do-it-yourself market.
Here is what some of those using the products said about them:
Dorian - Melbourne, FL
"I saw this on the show Curb
Appeal. As soon as I noticed they were carrying the paint right on their
body I just flipped!!! I can't believe someone else didn't think of it
earlier. My biggest problem with painting is moving the paint and the
ladder separately to keep from having a disaster!! I just finished
painting my house, inside and out, and I used the Paint Porter for it
is a great idea. The paint
is always nearby and easy to reach.Ē
Denise - Tacoma,
I'm looking forward to painting my
100 yr old house using Paint Porter; it's an answer to a prayer. I was
troubled with painting fascia and deep soffits from an extension ladder
safely - one hand for paint can, one hand for roller. With the Paint
Porter I can paint from my ladder, at my usual leisurely pace, without
having to rent scaffolding and then feel rushed to get the scaffolding
would definitely recommend this product, by far itís the most
productive and convenient painting tool Iíve ever experiencedĒ
made painting a lot easier with less bending (less pain in legs and
can be part of this revolution by ordering
Paint Porter or the Handyman Combo at Amazon.com, along with the Monster

Solves a Problem Persisting for Thousands of Years
Only a handful of problems have
endured for millennia without a solution.
From the dawn of civilization the difficulty of carrying paint
safely up and down ladders has persisted, but that problem has finally
been solved. Erick Taylor,
an inventor from Oakland California, was climbing a twenty-foot ladder
with a paint bucket in one hand and a paintbrush in the other, while
holding on to the ladder with just his index fingers and thumbs.
With his heart beating from fear of falling he told himself
ďthereís got to be a better way of carrying paint up a ladder.Ē
As with many solutions to a problem,
the answer came in a moment of serendipity while encountering a second
problem that day. When he
was stretching out from the ladder to paint an eave, he was holding the
paintbrush at the very end of the handle wishing he had an extension for
the brush. When he brought
his hand back to get more paint he noticed his hand had assumed the
shape of a gun, in a flash he realized the paint had to be carried on a
shoulder harness like a gun holster. Later, when he had the time, he
built a prototype that worked beyond his expectations.
Thus, Paint Porter was conceived;
itís an ergonomic hands-free paint carrier.
While doing a patent search, Erick was surprised to find there
were around thirty other hands-free paint carriers invented over the
last hundred years. Looking
at these competing inventions he could see why no hands-free paint
carriers had ever made it to the market.
All the competing carriers were mounted on the waist like a tool
belt or in the front like a peanut vendor, neither placement allowed the
user to bend over and move about freely.
Mounting the paint carrier on the chest area with a shoulder
harness allowed for the use of gimbals, a pivoting mechanism like that
used on ships for keeping the galley level in rough seas, which provides
the flexibility for the paint container to move with the user while
staying parallel to the ground at all times.
PORTER, painting is reinvented; not since the invention of the
paint roller in the 1940ís has there been a new innovative tool that
makes painting easier for the homeowner do-it yourselfer.
provides a patented new method for painting that makes it safer, easier
and even fun, by freeing the painter to move the paint effortlessly
about the job. Itís
the definitive hands-free paint carrier; all hands-free paint carriers
in the future will take their design cue from PAINT
Erick Taylor, the inventor,
laughingly said that instead of necessity being the mother of invention,
it was her ugly stepsister fear that was the motivation for him
inventing Paint Porter. Right
now Paint Porter can only be found at his website www.ThePAINTster.com and at amazon.com.
He hopes to have it in paint stores and home improvement centers
across the U.S. in the coming year.
