just a bit short for a 35' hose
(MD Notes: All covers are designed to expose at least one foot of hose on each end.)
The 30' cover does not completely cover the 30' hose - it is approximately 6' short
Easy to get off and on. Can wash it! Great product.
Easier to install than the elastic one but the elastic is better when its on
From the end of the zipper to the tie off should have velcro to close the opening.The same for the other end.This opening made the fine work of the sock look sloppy.
The sock cover had a manufacturing flaw. When attaching the zipper to the sock, the seamstress missed the edge of the zipper cloth along a section about 5 inches long.
(MD Notes: A replacement hose cover was shipped right away)
Works fine, easy to put on BUT -- it's too short. I understand that the short length is intentional but I can't figure out what purpose it serves. Would prefer the sleeve to cover the whole length of the hose.
The hose cover had a loose thread. It made a mess. Had to fix it. (MD NOTES: We apologized to the customer for the inconvenience, and sent them a free replacement hose sock cover).
I had an "original hose sock" and liked it a lot, so I thought the zippered hose sock would be a nice step up when I bought a second hose for the downstairs area of my house. Found that I preferred the original hose sock. The zippered hose sock is not padded all that much and seems to attract dog fur, and the zipper has let go at least once, so it had to be completely unzipped and then re-zipped. If I had it to do over again, I would just repurchase the original hose sock.
This product is disappointing....it does not really fit a 35' hose and it keeps slipping despite being tied tightly. I am most unhappy with it. (MD NOTES: The sock will slip to a comfortable place and the ends of the hose will be exposed by design since it is the middle that needs to be protected. Please have patience with the product and you'll see how wonderful it is. Nevertheless, you may return it for a full refund within 30 days by first contacting us with the request.)
Installed on Electrolux Cental Vac 35 ft. hose. Zipper made installation very easy, instead of slipping the long sock over the entire length of hose. Sock is not exact fit. These approximate measurements may be of some help to future buyers who have the Electrolux Central Vac 35 ft. hoses. Zippered Hose Sock: 33 ft. 8 in. Electrolux Hose: 34 ft. 6 in. (end-to-end). Coil section of hose between handle and wall connection: 32 ft. 6 in.
3 stars because it only went 30 ft on my 50 ft hose
Love the concept, hence the three stars, but unfortunately it didn't work for us. We have a light tan Lab mix dog whose short little hairs fly off her with each step she takes. Fortunately, our carpet is light-colored so they don't show up too much. But the material of this hose sock attracts her little needle-like hairs like crazy, even when the carpet was recently vacuumed. So after just one use, the sock was literally covered with her hairs. Since I had no intention of washing the sock after each vacuuming, I reluctantly returned it and will just have to be as careful as I can with the hose.
Nice but a little short of description (MD NOTES: The sock is not made to go to the ends. The entire middle is covered and that's what matters the most.)
One of the two socks were too long the other too short
Even though I ordered the correct length, the sock does not completely cover the hose. It does, however, cover the majority of it. Not easy to put on without help.
I bought a 35 foot cover,and it is short of fully covering my 35 foot hose of several feet. Upon tying it on the strings broke, and the velcro isn't sewn to where I can really make the cover tight at the ends. It is pretty, and since I have it starting at the plug in end, it will cover the areas that hit my woodwork, which is what I wanted it for. It went on easy. It would just look better if the 35'cover actually fully covered a 35' hose. I don't know if it will slide d/t not being 'tightly secured' at each end. I'll find out. (MD NOTES: The socks are made to be short. Leave the hose exposed on the hose handle end for easier griping as you handle the hose while vacuuming.)
The 35' sock is just a bit too short for the 35' hose. Otherwise the inside zipper feature is great.
Short does not cover all of 35' hose. Next to that OK.
Our original unit has the sock type cover, works well but difficult to remove for cleaning and re-installing with the sleeve is okay. This new type sock is very easy to put on and take off. The one problem I see with it that reduced my rating is that the stitching on the quilting is terrible and already coming unstitched. I don't expect it to last long at all. The concept is good the workmanship is terrible. David Shafman
MD NOTES: This is not normal. MD will look into this and send another if it is so.
first time i put it on - the zipper separated - hope that doesn't continue to happen or i'll be sending it back.
MD NOTES: We contacted the customer and offered a free replacement.
Does help to reduce wear & tear on furniture & corners but a little tough to keep in place & a little pricey.
Much improved over the old hose, however, it doesn't stay in place and I am always re-tying the lace and redoing the Velcro. I also had to safety pin the zipper closed or it slides down.
It slips down on the hose. The color is strange!
