Wooster Sherlock Professional Paint Roller Frame
By: Jodi Marks
The Wooster 9” professional paint roller frame incorporates a retaining spring to hold the roller sleeve securely on the frame while allowing for easy removal by tapping the roller frame on the edge of a paint bucket.
The roller frame also has twin bearings to reduce friction and allow the sleeve to turn easily.

Jodi Marks: You know I love painting projects, especially when the right tool makes my project go so much faster and easier, and take a look at this. This is the Wooster 9-inch Sherlock roller.
And what sets this apart is, first of all, I like the fact that it has these springs right here. So that when I slide my roller into place, you see how it locks on, that prevents the roller from walking off of the handle, which it so often does when you’re in the middle of your painting project.
I like the handle, it’s got a nice grip, so it’s easy to maneuver. But I have to say, the biggest thing that I like about this, is that it makes cleanup easier. How, you ask? Well, let me show you.
Instead of having to grip the roller and slide it off, all you have to do—and of course it might be a little easier with the weight of the paint on this, but since this is dry—look. I have a bucket right here where I would want to dispose of it.
All I have to do is tap it really hard on the side of the bucket, and I’ve got a clean roller handle ready to go again.
