Cutting in corners can slow you down when you’re painting — plus the paint texture where you’ve cut in with a brush never seems to match the paint texture applied with a roller. In certain lights it can even look like different shades. The CornerEase roller from Hyde lets you cut-in corners using a roller for a faster and more even paint job.
Besides corners, you can use the CornerEase to paint siding and bead board, paint around obstructions like conduit, and even apply drywall mud. A V-shaped hub is what shapes the 100% lamb’s wool cover so it can reach into corners and grooves. The handle also fits any standard extension pole.
You’ll pay between $25 and $30 shipped for a CornerEase Combo pack, which contains the roller hub, cover, and tray. Replacement covers run about $10.
