Longest Length

Answer:
Hi, you can put 11 of these together for a pretty sturdy vacuuming solution. We would do it at our homes!

Inside Ridge?

Hello, the plastic wand does not have a ridge as you describe so it will work for you. And sorry, we don't have any wands that wide.

Hello Annemarie, that would be the correct replacements.

Measurements

What is the OD and ID at the widest end? I'm looking for 1 1/2" OD and ID of 1 3/8". Is there a inside ridge on the wide end where you slide another wand into it? I am looking for a wand that does not have the inside ridge about 3" up inside that would stop another wand of different mfg. of fitting in. Thank You.

Answer:
That is the measurement. Interesting timing, right now (August 17, 2006) we have some other plastic wands that look like the ones pictured but have the wider end that you don't want. Give us a month and see if our supplier has the original style.
