The original Erase-A-Hole™ was created in 1991 by Mr. Ronald Todd, a professional drywaller. He came up with the idea on the job. He would find himself mixing drywall compound to fix small cracks and holes. He had tried many products out on the market and none worked properly and passed the high standard of a professional drywaller.  He needed a product that would satisfy some unique requirements: 

  • Convenient, with no mixing required so he didn't need to stop working
  • Fit into his work pouch
  • Wouldn't dry out once the package was opened the first time, like light weight spackle.
  • Quick dry time once applied, unlike spackle.
  • Long shelf life
  • Paintable & sandable
  • Antimicrobial

After much thought and a few experiments Ronald came up with a unique product that fit all of these requirements. A deodarant container didnt require any tools for application and it fit conveniently in his tool belt.



First Batch

Next step was to make an entire batch of Erase-A-Hole! He got all the materials and a planned out a method to fill a bunch of little deodarant containers and recruited the best free labor anyone can ask for(the kiddos) and filled his first batch. There were a few tweeks to work through but shortly after that the production was in full force. Soon he was getting orders from mail order magazines and a few mom and pop stores!
Erase-A-Hole is still owned and operated as a family business. Our product always has been and always will be 100% American made from the raw ingredients to the packaging.  Our product is superior to any product like it on the market because it truly delivers as advertised and its patented blend of stable ingredients makes it shelf stable for two years, guaranteed.
