We’re sure you’re sick of Hyde products for now, but we’re saving the best (read: most ridiculous) for last: the Dual-Action Flex Roller. Hyde claims that with their new roller you’ll spread paint more evenly, paint faster, and work more effectively.
Hyde attached a second spring-loaded roller to a basic paint roller to create their Dual-Action Flex Roller. It takes standard 9″ roller covers and can be used with extension poles.
We think Hyde incorrectly describes how their Dual-Action Flex Roller actually works. They say, “Simply place the top roller on your surface and roll. Spring action will force the bottom roller to follow…” Looking at the picture, this doesn’t make sense. The only way this thing works, if at all, is if the top roller is the one that’s spring-loaded. You put the pressure on the bottom roller, and the spring keeps the top roller against the wall.
If you think you can actually control this contraption and actually paint faster, you can purchase it for $18.
