Central Vacuum Inlet, Square Door, PVC

Product Details

Buy new vacuum covers for a fresh clean look and to stop any air leaks. It is not difficult to replace basic inlet valves. Watch our How to Replace a Inlet Video for directions - and give us a call if you need any help. We also have independent local dealers throughout the USA that can help you.

Square door inlets, or outlet covers, are installed in many homes, for many vacuum brands. They have not changed much in decades. A trim cover is available during checkout and is useful for covering the marks on the wall where the inlet sat. 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.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Outer dimensions: 3-1/8" by 4-7/8".
Valves may have model HM-1700. Replaces HAYDEN MFG 1700.

Contains low voltage connections only. The low voltage connections are two screws on the back and two slightly extruding metal contact points inside the hole. The low voltage wire (looks like speaker wire or telephone wire) connects to the screws on the back. (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.

If you need a case of these oval basic inlets enter 24 as the quantity.

Perfect replacement fit. Simple instructions. Took me literally 5 minutes to replace the broken original. Great service and excellent product.

ONE SMALL PROBLEM IN INSTALLATION THAT THE VIDEO DOESN'T MENTION. The new outlet, like the old one, has two small electrical connection pieces inside. (You can see them inside the cylindrical tube.) They are sprung, and they are inside the same hole that has the screw for connecting the low voltage electrical wires. If you inadvertently unscrew that screw all the way out, the spring that pushes the connection piece can fall out. Try not to unscrew that screw all the way before wrapping the wires around it. (MD Notes: Thank you for the tip. Please note that the screws are not meant to be completely unscrewed, but just enough to wrap the wire around them.)

Easy to change out the old inlet and install this one. It is working well so far.

First piece was damaged in transit, but a replacement was sent out immediately. I prefer metal to plastic, but this piece seems solid and should wear well.
