Product Description

Product Description

The Harris easy reach roller features a roller sleeve on a mini extension pole which will give you extra reach for higher walls or ceilings. It has a 2 part extension system with a twist and lock mechanism for easy use, and a foam handle which offers comfort. The sleeve is a 1.5” woven acrylic which gives a finer finish and greater coverage over budget sleeves. The sleeve can be removed and replaced enabling you to keep the frame for future use. This product includes 1 x 9” roller frame and 1 x 9” sleeve to complete any inside job using water based paints. Harris has been manufacturing fine quality decorating products since 1928 and you can visit our website for decorating advice.

Yes it does the job but for 8 foot high ceilings it could do with being slightly longer unless you are tall, I am 5'7".
Another problem is that the locking mechanism is not positive & sometimes comes undone in the middle of a stroke.
However all that said I did manage to paint 2 ceilings wihout a ladder & many walls.
I have now ordered more sleeves as I hate washing them & they are never as good 2nd time round

Unfortunately I neglected to measure the roller frame as it is sprung but now find the Harris sleeves that I bought from Amazon do NOT fit
The frame needs 1.5" bore sleeves & Amazon sells 1.75" bore sleeves

This was fit for purpose, did its job and did it well. I prefer to use non-disposable rollers instead of disposable ones, and this one with its extension function and fairly decent price makes it excellent value for money for what it does.

You'll obviously need a few more bits to do a room nicely, but for starting out these rollers are an excellent choice.

Happy with my purchase, if my current ones break or need replacing for any reason, I will buy again.

Ever fancied wrestling with an item which has a sloppy paint-covered sleeve over your head? Well look no further. This great idea has a flaw and, although it would be funny not to warn people and let them discover themselves, my human side has urged me to write this review in hope of warning someone before they become frustrated or paint-covered.

Does this item reach quite far? Yes, it has two simple extending mechanisms within, and you can reach a ceiling easy whilst flat-footed.
Does it apply paint AT THE SAME TIME as extending? Well I'm glad you asked, and the answer is YES, it certainly does!
So what's the flaw? Oh let me explain:

The way of extending this roller is to twist the secondary pole (within the handle), pull it out and twist back again. Then to extend further, twist the roller-frame, pull out and twist back again. So it's safe to say the locking mechanism is a simple screw-thread that binds. The issue is when you apply pressure to paint the walls. It doesn't happen immediately but it comes loose and then decides to close or extend, depending what you're doing and where you point it. So if you're applying pressure to the fully-extended pole overhead, it can slam shut,while the momentum of the action ensures the paint on the roller sleeve coats you and your dust sheets (or furniture if you're stupid).

Just looking at the picture, it makes sense that it would come loose, the steel bar frame comes out of the pole then only to one side, this means pressure on that side can either force the screw-thread tight or loose, and it's generally the latter.

So in conclusion, it's not an awful product, but it can be a chew on to use when the threads are used a few times.

This made life soooo much easier and more pleasant to paint. Reduced the time significantly with coverage and great application. This rinses out very well and we were able to use three different colors using just one roller.

Yeh this is another quality product from Harris. Lordy, lordy hail the decorating kings. Painted the ceiling with this and it did such a great job I ended up painting the cat and my mother in law too. Can't stop painting it's so good, have even painted my feet while writing this review!!!!

The walls in my house are at least 9 foot high and even with this fully extended I couldn't reach the top. It has a very nasty habit of suddenly unlocking and reverting back to the lowest setting - that's really annoying. Apart from these little niggles it performs very well. I'm painting one long wall and the chimney breast one colour and the other walls a different one so am using two separate types of roller. Washing it after painting and getting it dry is a nightmare - it hangs on to loads of emulsion then it won't dry for the next day. Overall I would recommend it though, once it gets going it's really good and covers an area quickly. Wish I'd done wallpaper now - it must be quicker ... sigh...

I couldn't be bothered with getting my ladders out to reach ceilings when I need to repaint recently, so tried this, and it worked!

I'm 6' and found this perfect for reaching our Victorian terrace ceilings comfortably - I would otherwise be stretching awkwardly, with lower chance of getting a smooth finish!

Roller has served well, cleans up nicely, and has left a smooth finish.

Works very well and value for money. The telescopic extention pole does occasionally unlock (a bit annoying but not critical unless you are using the product day in day out) and could do with being 10cm longer at least. I am quite tall so could reach a ceiling with it but a shorter person might struggle. Equally when I used it on a floor I had to bend over which is wearing on the back. If it were a bit longer it would be excellent. However it works well as a roller and the extension arm is certainly helpful.
