The Pirate Patch was born in 2009 when two best friends and entrepreneurs running a painting company discovered a much easier way to repair knockdown drywall texture. After encountering countless paint jobs needing small texture repair before the painting could begin and being completely unimpressed with the products currently on the market, they developed a quick and professional- quality solution.
In 2009, these guys sat at a local Loveland, Colorado burrito joint and sketched out the idea for the Pirate Patch. In 2010, RiRy, LLC was founded, and for the next two years, they discussed the ideas and searched for the ideal way to manufacture, design and deliver the Pirate Patch to the masses. In June 2012, The Pirate Patch Drywall Repair Tool received its first US Patent and hit the shelves at local Colorado Ace Hardware stores. The Pirate is currently in talks with some well-known companies to plan the release of the Pirate Patch nationwide, but until then, check out the following locations to get your own Pirate Patch: Store Locator.
