I read in a former post that this tool is packaged in three pieces and needs to be snapped together. Does that mean that the portion of the tube that curves upward is detachable? Please say yes. I have a Rainbow vacuum and love it, but I've been raking 3" long shag, THEN vacuuming it on my hands and knees with the upholstery tool for about a year now. Needless to say, I'm desperately in need of a new back or a shag attachment. If that little curved piece of tubing is optional, then I think this would probably work. ~ Bev - San Diego
The 3-pieces refers to the main brush body, and the two rows of brush tines. The neck is not removable and comes preassembled by the manufacturer. The neck will fit any standard wand and has a 1.25 inch opening.
