Valspar sells co-branded CANGUN1 worldwide

ASHLAND, OR – The Valspar Corporation, one of the largest paint and coatings companies in the world, has chosen to offer SafeWorld’s new CANGUN1 premium ergonomic aerosol spray can tool under Valspar’s brand name “The Easiest Spray Gun Available.”

"After more than 10 years of purchasing the original CANGUN, we're now excited to offer Valspar’s branded “The Easiest Spray Gun Available” as the Premium Spray Can Tool to our domestic and global customers,” said Jane Ryder, Valspar’s Category Manager. “The Easiest Spray Gun Available” offers our customers more features, benefits and increased satisfaction, while providing professional results at a value price."

SafeWorld’s premium ergonomic aerosol spray can tool features the world’s first ergonomic, arthritis-friendly FullGrip™ trigger, offering 22 times the surface area, compared to a standard spray can’s tip, for hours of effortless, pain-free, professional-style spraying. This trigger and the unit’s 2.5:1 leverage advantage, makes the tool, on average, eight times easier to spray with, and the only spray can tool usable while wearing work heavy gloves. Its one-of-a-kind trigger eliminates finger fatigue and numbness, wrist and forearm strain, and hand cramping, and dramatically reduces chemical contact normally associated with extended application by frequent heavy users, of, among other products: paints, coatings, cleaners, adhesives and lubricants. Compared to other products in this category, SafeWorld’s spray can tool’s one-size-fits-all FutureLock attachment ring fits all standard spray cans worldwide and requires the lowest amount of effort to attach, spray and remove.

SafeWorld’s premium ergonomic aerosol spray can tool’s handle length is approximately 20 percent longer than a competitive unit which translates into greater ease of use, and accommodates the largest range of hand sizes. Also contributing to the product’s greater ease of use is that there is twice as much open area space between the user’s hand and spray can when gripping and using this spray can tool.

“From the beginning of our 10+ year relationship, we’ve found Valspar to be a leading-edge trend-setter and we are very proud and excited that they have chosen SafeWorld’s spray can tool, branded as “The Easiest Spray Gun Available,” as their premium offering to their domestic and global customers,” said Ken Becker, Pres. of SafeWorld & Inventor of CANGUN1.
