Full Face Basic Central Vacuum Inlet

Central Vacuum Inlet, Full Face, PVC

Product Details

Buy new vacuum covers for a fresh clean look and to stop any air leaks. We highly recommend the Full Face Inlet and it directly replaces the oval and square door basic inlets. It is more sturdy and opens all the way so there is not a stress point. 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.

Full face 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. MD part numbers may include 653HW, 653HA, 653HI.

Outer dimensions: 3-1/8" by 4-7/8".
Valves may have model HM-2000. Replaces HAYDEN IND 2000.

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. Part numbers for the Full Door Basic Inlets may or may not include 653HW, 653HA, 653HI. (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.

My full-face inlet for my Vacuflo central system arrived as scheduled and was installed by me within 5 minutes after opening the box. Fit perfectly with no issues whatsoever! From now on, MD will be my first choice for my central vac parts.

The door shown in the photo is not the style I purchased. I got the full door unit. I needed them because the hose end was rotating in the inlet hole which caused the vacuum to stay on even with the switch off. The new units have a small anti rotation protrusion which is supposed to stop rotation. Unfortunately, it is so small that it does not function that well. It should protrude further off the face and be thicker or reinforced to prevent deforming. I suggest the rib be thickened and have support ribs at right angles to the top and bottom. This would form a U shape rather then the present I. It would be a simple change to the Die and require only a small amount of material per shot. Regards. (MD Notes: We have reached out to this customer to ensure satisfaction.)

Had to replace an older inlet as the new hoses did not fit. This one is more flush with the wall than the old one. It looks nice and was super is to install. Works great.
