its a great product... but the installation tube is about a foot too short .... end result is it works fine but what a hassle getting the sock on the hose
The hose sock works perfectly and looks good. No more messed up baseboards.
Luckily I had help to install. Instructions were very clear and once we got the hang of it - no prob.
Works well, installation directions need improvement
The only problem with this sock is getting it entirely on the application tube. It was quite difficult to compress it enough to get it all on the tube. Also I think the instructions could have been clearer specifically on what end to start on. Once on, it works as advertized reducing abrasion around wooden corners.
Easy to install. No problems.
Great product saves your hardwoods from scratching.
This product is excellent. Every time we move it is the first thing I buy!
The hose sock worked perfectly. We followed the installation instructions and it was very easy. Now our baseboards will be better protected when we pull the hose around corners. It also looks good too. I would order it again.
Ordered new 30 ft, hose with tube sock.I was Under the impression the tube sock was to be put on by MD central vacuum. My wife tried to put the sock on but it was too difficult for he and had to wait for me tto get home, So I think it would be a great jester on your part to have the sock on he hose so the buyer would not have to struggle with it.
I found that if you start the sock all the way to the end of the tub ethat you end up a fair amount of sock that will not fit on the tube.
The bottom line is that I would highly recommend the sock for any one that has to get a new hose. It moves a lot more easier around corners and furniture and 30 foot hose gets to places without having to keep going to another outlet and the on off switch is a must.
The hose sock arrived exactly as described and on time. On its own, it probably deserves 5 stars. But I found the installation process -- especially getting all of it squeezed onto the cardboard tube -- to be difficult. I'm not a particularly strong person, and that part of getting the sock on the hose was an ordeal. There may be an easier way, and I hope MD can come up with it for the sake of future customers!
Goes on easily, fits well, seems sturdy. Very satisfied.
35 ft sock is an excellent purchase which I would highly recommend. The application tube is low tech and brilliant.
I like the new sock better than my old one.
Very easy to install using the application tube. The sock is a must with the hose, else your corners around doors or a furniture foot with be damaged by the corrugations in the hose. (This really is a criticism of the hose manufacturer's design, because the hose will damage your home without the sock installed. The hose really should come with a sock integral with the hose!) I.e., if you buy the hose, you must also by the sock.
I was a challenge to install, but it really protects my furnture without being bulky.
It's perfect. No more scraping my wall corners furniture or wood flooring. It's so much easier to handle/carry the hose too for some reason. I highly recommend it. Comes with a helpful tube for sliding it on.
Somewhat difficult to put on because it is a VERY snug fit --it took two of us to do it-- but otherwise I really like it!
Very hard to put on. But like it otherwise.
I like this so much better than the quilted zip-up one that I had with my last hose. It went on easily with the included tube. The quilted one I had before was so baggy and I eventually just took it off.
