Central Vacuum Basic Wall Inlet Valve Plates
Basic Inlet Valve Reference Sheet
Basic Inlet Valve
Reference Sheet
All vacuum wall inlets on this page receive a 1-1/2" diameter hose end and fit into a 1-5/8" diameter hole in a mounting bracket inside the wall. Each inlet valve can be mounted with the lid opening up or down. Mounting screws are about 3-7/8" apart on center and included with the new wall inlet. Note: if you need valve covers with two small holes for 110 volts, please go to Electric Valves. Also note that the FULL FACE style inlets below are the MOST DURABLE and replace oval and square styles.

Watch VideoAll rectangle shaped valves are interchangeable. There are two metal contact points inside the hole of each inlet valve below and two screws on the back side for the low voltage wire connection.

Replace 99% of older wall inlets (except ones activated by pressing copper or a button, or that have a 1-1/4" hose insertion hole vs a 1-1/2") with any of these rectangle valves.

Consider a Low Voltage Hose with handle on/off switch. Get the luxury of turning the vacuum on and off at the hose handle instead of running back to pull it out from the wall. All Low Voltage Hoses work with all inlets and vacuum systems. Have questions?.

We highly recommend the more durable Full Face wall plates when replacing the Oval Style. Full Face inlets open all the way without a stress point and fit exactly the same to both the wall and hoses.

Wall plate contains low voltage connections only. There are two metal contact points inside the hole of the valve. Valves with two holes on the face of the plate that are for 110 volt electricity are available under Electric Valves. If you need a case of these inlets enter 24.
Can be installed to open up or down. All rectangle outlet valves on this page are interchangeable. Outer dimensions: 3-1/8" by 4-7/8". HM-1500. Replaces HAYDEN MFG 1500. Trim cover is available. Video: How to Replace Inlet.

Side Opening, Full Face Door, White
Side Opening, Full Face Door, White
BRAND NEW 2013! Side opening basic inlet that provides EASIER ACCESS to the hose port. Replaces all inlets sold here that have two mounting screws top and bottom 3-7/8" to 4" apart. The full size door can open 180-degrees to swing out of your way, flush with the wall, when plugging in your vacuum hose. Our recommendation is to upgrade to this inlet or the full face inlet for the best durability.

This inlet has low voltage contacts only, not the additional 110 volt connection holes, but the electrical version is also available under Electric Valves. The inlet has a 1-1/2" diameter hole.

3-in-1 Mounting Bracket PVC
3-in-1 Mounting Bracket PVC
Most popular bracket for all rectangle shaped Basic Inlet Valve Covers. Install into new construction by nailing or screwing it into a stud. For existing home installation cut the plastic stud mounting side off and set it in a 2-3/8" x 4-1/4" hole cut into drywall (or wall material). Fasten inlet cover (with attached low voltage wire) to backing plate for a long lasting, firm hold. When piping, connect a fitting such as a tight 90 or coupling to the flange on the back side of the mounting bracket. For existing installation it is helpful to glue the fitting on before mounting it with the vacuum plate to the wall. If you need a case of these enter 75.
