Simplify striping with this handy device

The "U-Stripe It" promises to make it easier to paint stripes on a wall or other surface.

The device consists of a pair of straightedges that can be adjusted to a specific width apart and then locked into place. The straightedges then serve as a guide for positioning painter’s tape without the need for pencil marks.

By adding low-tack tape, you can stick the tool to the wall to free your hands for applying the painter’s tape.

Levels attached to the device help you to keep it plumb for vertical stripes or level for horizontal stripes. The gadget can also be used for creating circles and other geometric shapes.

The U-Stripe It can be ordered for $27.95 at www.ustripeit.com. Shipping is free.
