Central Vacuum Basic Wall Inlet Valve Plates

Back to All Inlets

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 Video

All 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?

Note that the ivory colored valve is no longer available, almond is not as a dark as ivory, it is more of an off-white. These inlets can be installed opening up or opening down. If you wish to have a different style door you can choose from any of the rectangular basic low voltage inlet cover plates.

(If you are replacing inlet covers that have two female holes 3/8" apart on the face of the plate, these contain 110 volts and are available at Electric Valves. A low voltage valve will not replace an electric valve even if it has the shape.

3-in-1 Mounting Bracket PVC

3-in-1 Mounting Bracket PVC

Product Details

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.
