Nicely fits NuTone whole house vacuum hose; hose screws into hose end without additional
plastic lock. Metal is also sturdier than plastic hose end.
works great as a replacement
Purchased to replace the worn out stretch hose handle. Threaded collar does not fit stretch hose, but has the same internal dimensions as the stretch hose handle. I was able to swap the collars and use this with my stretch hose. My vacuum wand did not have a hole for the button, so I had to grind one (no drill bits to drill stainless). It is a tight fit, but will not wear out like the plastic stretch hose handle.
