Specifically designed to work on delicate surfaces such as fresh paint, wallpaper and decorative projects, this premium grade masking tape is perfect for when you need a lower adhesion level to help prevent surface damage. It features FrogTape’s exclusive PaintBlock Technology, a super-absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape to prevent paint bleed.
The PiViT Ladder Tool is a lightweight, easy to use ladder leveler that sets up in seconds and has no moving parts. Use it as a ladder platform for stairs, sloped earth and just about any uneven surface. It requires no bolts or clamps and can be easily moved from ladder to ladder.
