When I found the hose I wanted I did want a hose sock to protect my furniture and my walls. The sock I had before was the slip on one and I was always having to slip it back up the hose because it would bunch up. I saw they had a hose sock that zipped on to the hose and that was the option I wanted. Great concept! It was easy to put on the hose - took me about 5 minutes. Hardest part was getting the new hose straightened out right out of the box so I could put this hose sock on. But to my disappointment, the zipper splits open somewhere in the middle of the hose sock every time I use it. I have to unzip the sock past the point of where it came apart and then rezip it back on the hose.
This last time it was over halfway down the hose. I would have thought the quality of the zipper would be better - especially for the price.

Fits well, good quality, super easy to install !!!
Great product! No more damage walls and furniture!
Exactly as described. Thick and easy to install
This zippered hose sock is amazing. It has cut down on the amount of time it takes to vacuum the house because the covered hose glides easily and the hose is not getting caught on furniture and corners like before. I truly recommend this item, it's a useful tool for a dull chore.
The zipper keeps unzipping and basically, is useless. I will need to return it

It's great, but too short. I have a 35 ft hose. I thought I ordered a 35 ft cover.
(MD Notes: The Central vacuum Hose and Hose Sock can vary in length due to the manufacturing process. Sock does not need to be the entire length of the hose. A few feet exposed on either end will not hurt anything.)
Very easy to install, helps keep the hose from catching and kinking.
Easy to install
This hose cover is fantastic. Zipper makes it very easy to install with and it looks very nice. Keeps the hose from tangling and the walls from getting scuffed. A must have for central vac users!
Went on with no issues, makes it easier to slide the hose around the house.
This is a great addition to my house vacuum. It makes it quieter and it protects the walls and furniture from the hose. I just wish I would have bought this when I had my vacuum system installed.
The zippered cover is greatly superior to the stretchy hose sock. However, at both ends of the cover there are long openings because the zipper does not extend all the way to the end of the cover. At one end, the gap is around 9 inches and the other end around 5 inches. These openings leave the hose exposed, and I wish the zipper was longer so more of the hose would be covered at the ends.
Loved the zipper for installing but be sure to stretch to install.
The hose cover was delivered on time and was all that was promised. My wife put it on the hose in minutes. We're about to order another for our upstairs hose.
Easy to fit onto existing hose
I have an Electrolux hose and powerhead and they have always scratched my baseboards and the corners of my walls so I'm always touching up paint. I wasn't sure if this would fit the hose but it did. It was fairly easy to install and I like it really well because not only does it prevent scratching, it even makes the hose slide easier around the furniture and walls. I highly recommend it.
This is a very nice product - excellent quality and attractive. We googled around quite a bit to find a shorter low voltage hose and cover for our Beam system and feel very fortunate to have found this company. We couldn't be happier and actually prefer these products to our original Beam hose and cover.
