Hyde introduces Painter's Assistant

Southbridge, Mass.-based Hyde Tools introduced a product designed to reduce the painter's time on preparation and painting. 

The Hyde Painter's Assistant is a multi-use painter's tool that acts sort of like an extra pair of hands. Thecarrying handle for one and two quarter containers includes a magnetic bursh holder. 

Also built in are a paint can opener, brush and roller cleaner, belt hook, putty knife/scraper and a garage tool hanger.
