Took a few times trying to fit it in the pipe, but once in place it works fine. Still in there after 3 house cleaning events. Beats a whole new hose or end attachment.
Although I have only been using this clip for two weeks it has worked great and is an inexpensive fix to a costly problem.
Just the thing to replace the one that fell off our vacuum cleaner a few weeks ago. This little bit of metal has extended the useful life of the machine, and saved us a lot of money! What a great invention.
A great fix to a hose (vs. having to buy a new one). Very easy to install.
I used this to make my new friction fit hose work with existing button lock wand. It work just as I expected .
Great repair! Was a cinch to put in!
The button is not long enough to protrude through the vacuum pipe and to serve as a latching device. I would have returned it, but the cost was mostly "shipping and handling", so I wouldn't have received enough to make it worth my while.
(MD Notes: We worked out a deal with the customer to his satisfaction.)
Hi! The product shipped quickly and the part was a perfect fit for my Kenmore canister vacuum.
it did not work as our vac system is probably too old. Maybe 12 to 13 years old. I fixed it JB weld.
I removed the broken piece from the old button spring, and was able to install the new Button Lock C Clip with little difficulty. Unfortunately, the button does not protrude through the hole sufficiently to engage the other piece. It is fully seated, but not long enough. Perhaps a rating of 1 is a bit harsh, however, it doesn't work on my vacuum.
Works fine. A little tricky to install as the tension bar that fits inside the hose end is tight. Best advise is to position the clip just inside the hose end attachment with the button aligned with the hole that it will spring into, then slowly push the clip back little by little with a screw driver so that the clip remains straight until the button clicks into the hole. If the clip tilts it will just fall inside the hose and you will have to shake it out and start again.
I had no idea that getting the right hose for my Newtone would require three tries (and of course three shipping charges.) First, the hose was OK, but had the wrong input pipe -plastic-- and I needed the metal one to turn the motor on. Bought the right pipe, and then discovered I needed the little C clip to keep the hose attached to the wand. Got that, and installed it with a little difficulty--but it's there.
A little tricky to get into place but worth the effort. It works like a charm, it has more tension than the original. Makes an economical repair vs replacing the item.
Great little gizmo. Local vac. co. wanted to sell be an entire nozzle assembly. No way, Jose.
Button lock c clip serves the purpose and was easy to install, and seems to be of good quality. Downside is my wife said it is hard to push the button to release. Other than that, pleased with purchase and would recommend your product.
The clip is a good idea but it did not work on my vacuum handle. The pin was not long enough to stick out through the plastic and grab the hose. I think this was meant for handles with a metal pipe, not the thicker plastic pipe that I have. The seller was fantastic in handling the return. I would buy from them again.
button wasn't quite long enough to extend thru the hole of the Eureka hose assembly
