Magnetic Brush clip

This simple paintbrush holder incorporates two magnets into a bent plastic clip. Clip the holder to the side of the can and it’ll hold any brush with a ferrous ferrule in a vertical or angled position. As a bonus, a metal tab for opening paint cans is built into the lower grip.

Professional painters and finishers will probably cringe seeing the above picture of a paintbrush dripping back into the can, but who says you have to use this handy little magnetic brush clip on the original paint can? Clip it to the side of your roller tray or favorite paint pail instead.

The origins of this product are unclear, but Lee Valley is certainly importing this clip from somewhere. I found pictures of a yellow version with a single magnet sporting “Brush Lugg” on the grip, on some site for a company in Poland.

You’ll find this magnetic paintbrush holder for $3.50 over on Lee Valley’s web page.

    My thoughts exactly Blair…one more thing to clean. Half my recent projects’ painting meant more time cleaning than painting.

    If you can’t put the brush across the top of the open can, you’re doing something wrong. And for the hassle of another thing to clean, if I thought the brush needed to sit somewhere and not dry out, I’d put it inside a plastic sandwich bag before leaving it in the paint. It just gets too much paint too far up to the handle, which then dries out b/c you never use that area.

    The photo reminds me though, this would be a nice thing to have when staining though. That’s always a mess and the brush dries out slower than latex.

    These do not work as well as another clip that is similar, it is called the original brush klip, thwere number is (480-231-9896) and it holds the brush secure and you are able to keep the bissles in the paint if need durring down time. I am a proffessional painter and I didn’t like the way the magnet would let the brush get knocked off when moving the bucket around.
