You should ship the Hose Sock ON the tube
I purchased this sock to replace a bulky padded, zippered brocade cover with tie-on ends. What a difference it makes in handling the hose! Installing the sock was straightforward using the supplied tube. I found using heavy nitrile gloves made the tube installation and the hose covering processes much easier. The tie-wraps included are much tighter and cleaner than the tied-ends. I ordered the 35 foot model based on my hose measured hose length but it turned out to be too long so I left the excess length bunched-up rather than cutting it to length and risk fraying the end. Measure your hose end-to-end, not including the connection ends!
Like this better than my older zipper sock. Goes on really easy and stays put!
Easy to install and much better than the one that zips on
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fits perfect just like the original. We were worried after 15 years there might be a change but worked great.
It's good ,does what is supposed to,applies fairly easywith two people,one to hold the hose tauht and the other to slide the sock on
