"Pour & Brush " Paint Delivery System:  U.S. Patent # U.S. / RE 35,933 and Canadian Patent # 2,176,545

The Pour & Brush is a revolutionary system for the delivery and application of all liquids with a paint brush.

PURPOSE OF THE POUR & BRUSH ...

The Pour & Brush represents a direct response to the multitude of problems associated with the delivery and application of all liquids with a paint brush. As a result of the current use of the original container, as the primary vehicle for applying liquids with a paint brush, the Pour & Brush is the solution to problems such as:

 

 

 

  • Simply place the disposable insert into the outer container.
  • Pour any amount of liquid (up to one quart) into the reservoir of the disposable insert.
  • Apply the liquid with a paint brush -- using the brush wiping surfaces, as a brush holder or a ladder strap -- as needed.
  • Use the dripless pouring spout of the insert to return any remaining liquid back into the original container.
  • Replace the used disposable insert with a new one. Add paint thinner or soap and water to clean the brushes.

    NO MORE ...

  • Continuously grasping a full quart-size can of paint, with the paint running down the side of the can, with clogged rims and hard-to-close covers. 
  • Looking for a safe place to rest a wet paint brush. 
  • Struggling to climb a ladder with an open full can of paint.
  • Frustration with the inability to access liquids in small neck containers with a paint brush.
  • Messy, time-consuming clean-ups of paint brushes and paint cans.


POUR & BRUSH -- ANATOMY OF A TURNKEY INVENTION:

CONSIDERATIONS:

AND ... LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE CONSUMER WILL ALSO BENEFIT FROM THE FOLLOWING 10 ADVANTAGES: 

  1. Portability:  Handle or ladder strap enables user to easily hold and carry the equivalent of a quart size can of paint.
  2. Accessibility:  The Pour & Brush provides access to liquids in containers which cannot be directly accessed with a paint brush.
  3. Versatility:  The Pour & Brush can be suspended from a ladder for above-ground use
  4. Wet paint brush storage area.
  5. Provides a method of removing and recapturing excess liquids from the paint brush.
  6. Disposable insert insures instant clean-up.
  7. Reduces fatigue and possible paint loss as lesser amounts of liquids may be poured into the reservoir of the insert. 
  8. Dripless pour spout of the insert enables the user to safely return the remaining paint back into the original container.
  9. Paint brush cleaning capabilities achieved with the use of additional disposable insert. 
  10. New condition of paint can is maintained because can is now only used for storage purposes. 

COULD THIS BE A COMPETITIVE-FREE INNOVATION?
YOU DECIDE ...

HOME IMPROVEMENT TIP:

Small quart-size paint cans can be hard to carry and easy to tip over. During your next paint job, try putting the quart paint can inside an empty gallon can that has a handle. It will be easier to carry, and you won't have to worry about wasting paint -- you can pour any spills inside the larger can back into the smaller container.
