One of the velcro attachments was damaged, we worked around it, but the bumper does not fit as well as it should even if the velcro did work correctly.
Would like to return. Clumsy and attracts too much dirt, lint & dog hair. Bad purchase on my part!
(MD Notes: We have reached out to this customer with options to remedy this issue.)
This is a great idea! It protects furniture from scratches and prevents scuff marks on baseboards.
Really helps protect baseboards and furniture!
Easy installation. Hope it saves the woodwork maintanence of the past.
This is a great product to use if you value your furniture. There's nothing worse than seeing dinged up furniture legs inadvertently damaged by a vacuum. The bumper is thick and nicely protects surfaces from nicks and gouges. I should have bought one of these years ago.
what a great idea ---no more black marks on my white stair risers---thank you
Nice coverage, but the instructions are very cryptic for installation. It is not obvious that additional Velcro is to go on the bumper to tailor the fit. Since additional Velcro needs to be applied, taking the bumper off the velcro and holding of attachment for 24 hours doesn't make sense.
I had read the reviews on this product that were either very positive, or disappointing to other purchasers. I decided to purchase and try it anyway, and have been very happy with the bumper. It was easy to install, fit well, and I have had no problems with it slipping. Would recommend this product.
I am not satisfied with the fit but it will work. Overpriced for the benefit. Stick on felt or rubber would do as well. Would not reorder.
(MD NOTES: Thank you for the feedback. The VacuBumper company has put together a very high quality product, made in the USA, and uses some of the most expensive materials to keep your home scuff free for years to come.)
When I received this "central vacuum" bumper, the package was clearly marked for a "canister vacuum". Thus, I was expected to stuff it onto my "central" vacuum head and be pleased with the horrible way in which it fit and hung over the edges, and would clearly interrupt with my vacuuming. The company was good about the returning of this product (even if the representatives were aloof and cool), however, I believe it is false advertising to say their parts are for central vacuum systems, when in fact you receive an item that is clearly marked "Canister vacuum". Really disappointed, and thus hesitant to ever order another thing from this company. Buyers beware!
(MD Notes: Thank you for the feedback. Canister vacuums usually only have a low profile floor brush and these are the same brushes used for central vacuums. This bumper will fit all these standard low profile floor tools for all central, canister, shop, and upright vacuums. Yes, the bumper is "high" but the included velcro, when applied correctly lays the material down very well.)
This is a furniture saver you must have! My favorite invention!
Vacuum bumpers are must have if you have white base boards. They stay on and do not mark up the base boards. Great idea!!!
Does protect furniture, a bit bulky, but happy to have for my little helpers who seem to not mind hitting walls when vacuuming!
Takes a bit of thought to attach the bumper to the MD Stealth, but it functions beautifully once in place.
Greatest product I have ever used! Went on flawlessly and works perfectly! I wish I got it years ago!
I bought both the small and large bumpers to protect my new walnut trim and furniture legs. They were not hard to put on and stay on perfectly once you clean the vacuum head with the included alcohol pads. Now I wonder how I coped without them. Makes vacuuming much faster and easier and dirt comes off the front with a quick swipe of the suction.
Although this was placed on a new vacuum head, the tape is not sticking well. (MFG NOTES: In 2012, we upgraded to the Velcro® brand nylon hook with #19 adhesive backing, which offers superior bonding. Made in the USA.)
