    If you hang it on the side, isn’t the paint going to dry on the brush?

    It is just like for taking a break, resting your hand or such, but not for hours, you are right.

    Saw "paint brush mod", rolled eyes. But I had not seen this exact implementation; clever. I wonder if there's a Functional fixedness or similar such barrier that prevents us from inserting a screw into a tool. Also, something something magnets.

    Similar concept, patented this past summer. Essentially a fancy version of tsbrownie's trick (plus the paintbrush handle in the patent is threaded to accept an extension pole; I need to think about that one). Click for full patent.
