Works great. Smoothly slides around the floor and is not damaging corners. The only problem I had was that there was no way to install it. It would not fit over either end of the hose. So I cut a hole in it and slipped the end of the hose through the hose then zipped it shut. Except for that I'd say it does save on damage to the walls and trim boares
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.)
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.
Love the fact that it zippers on, I do not like the print Wish it was plain.. looks outdated, would have been nice to have a choice
Customer service was fantastic, immediately shipped different length as first was too long. Great service.
I like the way the hose moves smoother around furniture and walls.
Too many long pieces of thread needed to be cut before I was able too zip the sock. Otherwise ...it was fine.
I really like this hose sock but had to take a needle and thread to it right out of the box. Once I repaired it it is good to go. I would say use a smaller stitch with better and stronger thread. I do love the ease of the zipper and the nice material. Would I buy another one???? Absolutely!!!!
(MD Notes: We have reached out to this customer to ensure satisfaction.)
Stitching needs to be stronger.
It is a much nicer cover than I had. It just needs to be tighter at the ends.
Very good quality, not essential but helpful. Adds a little bulk but no weight. Slides nicely
Out of the box the hose cover went right on and fit as described. Unfortunately the zipper was not sewn in correctly in an area of about 12" and needed to be repaired prior to use; other than that it works great.
Light in weight is good
Easy installation good
Protects properly good
Difficult to roll up and store bad
The sock works well. I wish there was a better way to firmly anchor/attach the sock to the hose. I am able to tie the one end around the handle and it stays very well -- but on the end that plugs into the wall . . . there is not a loop to run the string or the velcro straps through and, therefore, it seems to slip a little bit, regardless of how tight I attempt to tie it around the hose itself.
