KiwiGrip rollers let you vary the texture of Kiwigrip non skid coating, from fine to aggressive depending on the amount of surface traction desired.
Loopy Goopy rollers are unique and proprietary to KiwiGrip, and the only type of their kind available. Choose from 4 inch and 9 inch sizes. For best results, the 4 inch size is recommended. However, the larger size works well on larger boats.

email@example.comI ordered 2 roller and did not receive the handle ,just the rollers . Do I have to order the handle.
The roller frame does not come with the roller covers, they are sold separately. They fit standard paint rollers, and though it is a 4" roller cover, you should be able to get away just fine if you can find a 3" roller frame, just verify that it holds the roller cover sufficiently.

does the handle come with the kiwigrip rollers ?
Yes the handle is included with one roller and this normally comes with the first gallon of Kiwi Grip. I have purchased extra rollers and they do not come with a handle. One Hint, Do not push down hard on the rollers when rolling our the Kiwi Grip because the roller material will break down and leave pieces in finished product.
Hi,I bought this in gallon form and ordered an extra roller cover and no the handle did not come with it then. The product has now been on the boat 2 years and has held up well.
No, it is only the roller cover. It fits on standard roller frame. Make sure you get the right length to match the roller cover.
no it doesnt a standard 4" roller fits
Is the finish flat or gloss or?
Def a flat finish. Keep in mind that the product is designed to be very textured and that the amount of texture depends on how thick it is applied. Something else to keep in mind is that because of the high degree of texture, it is hard to clean, so probably best to not use in high traffic areas. In did my cockpit sole in regular paint with nonskid. But the Kiwi is awesome on topsides forward.
I have used the gray and cream color and the finish is flat. It looks great and is easy to work with.
The final finish is flat, mainly because of the texture. I painted a couple small area with a brush and they are more of a satin or semi gloss.
The finish is flat and the roller is textured.
The finish is more flat than gloss...as you would expect a non-skid finish to look. It looks very good in contrast with the smooth shiny gelcoat or paint on the rest of the deck. You may also have it tinted any color you like at your local paint store.
Neither, it's more of a satin look . It holds up very nice . Love it , can't say enough about it .
The finish is on the flat side of semi-gloss. There is no shine but it does not look chalky either.
Easy to apply paint
This paint is easy to apply. Hardens well.
WORKED WELL FOR NON SKID COATING
Stellar Customer Service!
The product seems to apply as advertised, but I have not put it to the test yet. I wanted to comment on Jamestown's excellent customer service. My little quart arrived broken open and a sticky, gooey mess in a box. Clearly a shipping issue. I called JD to discuss and without delay, they sent me a new quart AND an extra roller cover! Thank you for attention to such a small order! Since before the web, when snail mail was the only option, I have purchased everything from silicon bronze screws to a spoke shave from JD and they are consistently stellar. Thanks again!
You'll need to buy a few .....
I spread kiwi with a throw away brush first then roll it out. I like my finished deck but the roller fell apart after 1st coat. I should have bought a few. I would still recommend it because it creates a nice surface & you can control the texture you want. It's not as aggressive as I thought, and we'll see how long it holds up. All in all so far I'd buy it again. Easy application. Hope it holds.
Need to apply KiwiGrip thickly and then roll it out. Be careful with later applications since the old paint dries quickly in the roller and then blobs onto the new surface.
