Key Ring Makes a Cut Bucket More Comfortable
If you have some painting to do you could grab the bucket hook your thumb through the bail and wait for your thumb to cramp up, but there’s a better way.
Professional painters usually paint out of a cut bucket, which is a paint can with the rim removed. When they’re holding the can they typically support the can from underneath with their hand and then hook their thumb around the bail, which can get very uncomfortable. To remedy this problem, Bryan Humphrey of Wilimington, N.C., rigged up his cut bucket with a key ring. Once installed around the bail it provides a steady and comfortable way to hold the paint can.
