InventHelp® Client Develops Three-In-One Painter's Tool (HLW-1102)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp® attempts to submit an invention, Open and Seal, to companies for review.

Painting can be a messy business, as splashes tend to escape the can whenever you open and close it. In order to prevent this, an inventor from Miami, Fla., created a prototype for the OPEN AND SEAL.

The tool makes it easier to open and close paint cans. The unit prevents splashes and leaks so that the area remains clean. The accessory punches holes in can's rim so that paint drains back into the can. This preserves paint by eliminating waste. The device makes it easier to sift paint, and it closes the lid without the need for a mallet. In addition, the invention saves time, effort and money.

The inventor's professional experience inspired the idea. "Before I retired, I painted planes for Boeing," he said. "I had to open and reseal paint cans all day long. Often, there were splashes that ruined my work. To get the job done without all the mess, I invented this tool."

The original design was submitted to the Hollywood office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-HLW-1102, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at
