In 1990 whilst painting & decorating the outside of a house using a small ‘A’ frame ladder, that the ladder gave way as I over- stretched and I found myself flat on my back on the floor. Although not seriously injured, it became immediately apparent that this potentially life changing accident could have been prevented.
As the proprietor of a reputable and successful building, painting & decorating company, personal injury would have had catastrophic consequences. A solution was needed to prevent this type of incident happening again and we needed to find a way to balance safely with one hand on the ladder whilst still being able to hold a paint kettle with the other. After searching in several merchants, DIY chains and on the internet, it soon became apparent that such a tool for painters and decorators was not available.
It was while playing with a Frisbee one sunny Summer day in the garden with our daughters that the idea of using a similar material for a paint holder and carrier started to evolve and so the Betsy Paint Mate was born.
