The Wall End
All Basic Hoses have metal around the entire wall end or a complete ring of metal around the end. When the vacuum hose is inserted into the inlet, the suction automatically starts. For the added convenience of turning the suction on and off at the hose handle, we highly recommend upgrading to a low-voltage hose. The diameter of the hose end is just under 1-1/2 inches and there are adapters to fit non-standard vacuum inlet valves.
The Handle End
Basic Hoses do not have a traditional handle but rather an elongated and angled arm. They usually are friction fit and not locking. The connection end is 1-1/8 to 1-1/4 inch diameter. Again, we highly recommend upgrading to a low-voltage hose for a more comfortable grip, and better control (no kinks).
