When you need an extra pair of hands on the job to hold your paintbrush or paint can, simply call in your Painter’s Assistant. Fortunately for you, this one doesn't charge by the hour! Attach the grip to a paint can, ladder, or tool belt to turn it into a multifunctional tool that travels with you, high and low. It also serves as a paint can hook, paint bucket carrying handle, and brush and roller cleaner, and its built-in magnetic strip can hold your paintbrush when you take five. Available from HYDE at The Home Depot; $4.97.
