Easy to install with the tube supplied. The material is a bit thinner than I expected but I believe it will be enough to protect the walls and molding when the vacuum is being used.
If I could give this no stars I would. Not a good product when you have a dog and slate floors. The first time I used it it snagged...already looks like a pair of used panty hose. The hose attracts the dog hair also which is a pain. The installation was also not great...the tube is too short. Not sure why the sock can?t be already on the tube.
(MD Notes: We have reached out to the customer to remedy the issue.)
Product was easy to put onto the hose, I was able to put it on by myself in about ten minutes. It really does help the hose slide on the floor and softens the sound of the hose on the floor. Very happy with it so far.
The installation process was very difficult for my husband.
But once the sock is on, it glides across my floors, & rolls up so easily.
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.
