Hey.

I see this issue has been addressed on quirky before here even before you posted it. Both times with a rubber band-type mechanism. Your idea uses a design that looks like it wraps around one particular size of paint bucket size which restricts it to that one particular size. I have designed mine to try and accommodate for all types of paint bucket diameters.

I'm not saying that my design is fool-proof that is where the refinement stage of the design process comes in. It is only a concept at this stage but my idea of attaching the product to the paint bucket compared to yours is completely different even compared to the other previous design ideas posted on here.

So thanks for referring me to the other ideas posted on here but I still think mine differs from the existing proposals.

Cheers.

Hey Paul.

Thanks for the heads up. I must admit I did not see your idea before posting this as there is probably hundreds or close to a thousand ideas on here.
I am addressing the same problem as you but have a different solution to what you are proposing so in all fairness I think I have a right to post my idea on here. I have actually explained and illustrated a clear solution and possible mechanism to how I would attach my product to any size paint bucket and I do believe this is completely different to your idea and what you have illustrated.

I'm sure there is more than one person designing on here for the same problem but with different solutions, so in all fairness we shall see what quirky has to say on this.

Thanks again mate.

The existing links I have provided in the 'product comparison' show a similar principle being used with attaching a rubber band around the paint bucket to brush off excess paint in the center of the bucket. Although the rubber bands have so much elasticity that by removing them after painting the chance of flicking paint everywhere is pretty high. I'm sure there is a better way to come up with a more practical solution.

Been watching the Quirky website for a year wondering when two jump in. I’ve load up my first idea to the site a few days ago. Have more idea but I want to see how everything works. I believe this is a fantastic way to get your idea, out there. I would like to hear what you have to say, on what I submitted and your personal view on what else I can do. I would love to do the same for you someday soon. http://www.dalereynolds.com
