I am very pleased with the 12 ft extension piece I received. I can now reach the end of my bonus room up above the garage. To make it a perfect 5 it would be nice to be able to color match it with the original hose--which might be impossible--and to sell a sleeve that fits a 12 ft extension. But I guess to I might just be to fussy!!!! I am pretty happy however I could find such a thing (the hose) to attach and work great. Thank you
Functions fine. The only problem one might have is that there is nothing to secure the connection between the hoses. They will separate if you stretch the combined hoses too far.
Love that I can reach the porches. I bought a new 35ft hose to replace my 30ft hose and also purchased this 12ft extension hose to reach the far edges of my screened porches. I LOVE IT!!!
It meets all expectations. The coupling takes getting used to.
The only improvements I would recommend is to include an extension cord to plug it into an outlet and something where the two hoses connect to prevent them from coming apart if the hose is pulled. I used it a couple times, so far, and only pulled it apart once, so if one is careful not to pull too hard on the hose it will stay together.
This hose provides greater distance to the area to be serviced. It is well worth the expense. What is does not due is extend the 110 volt electrical connection but that need is easily met with an extension cord. Thank you.
Wish it were longer. Maybe 20 feet? When we remodeled our house I lost one of the wall sockets for the vacuum. I had to use a hand held which didn't quite get up all of the dust. Needless to say, I was excited when I saw the extension. As stated earlier would like to see one about 20'. Works great and I can now reach areas that were beyond range before.
Works fine but the end that plugs into my existing wall outlet was very tight, whereas, the end into which you connect your existing hose was quite loose. Seems as though the quality control is not as good as it should be. (MD NOTES: This hose is made to fit the majority of brands and decades of products out there on the market.)
I really like it, needed the extra length. The only problem is that it is VERY hard to push into my receiver in the wall. Hopefully it will get easier as it is used more?
Love this and it works well so far.
I received an email notifying me that MD had a sale on the 12ft. extension hose, when I ordered one I was immediately notified that it would be "backordered" due to "out of stock". If you had a huge demand on the sale item and ran out that is one thing, but if you didn't have any in stock when you put this item on sale, then that is inexcusable. However, it wasn't long before you had the item in stock and shipped it immediately. The hose works great and I'm very happy with my purchase.
The coupling could be made with rubber padding for the hard plastic can might scratch floor or funiture. Overall a very nice accessory.
