Inlet Cover Hole A Bit To Large For Hose Comes Loose At Times
(MD Notes: We learned after the fact that the customer owns a proprietary Nutone inlet, which will require a Nutone inlet replacement #653NW. We reached out to the customer offering to issue a refund for the incorrect inlet as well as the details of the correct inlet option.)
My full-face inlet for my Vacuflo central system arrived as scheduled and was installed by me within 5 minutes after opening the box. Fit perfectly with no issues whatsoever! From now on, MD will be my first choice for my central vac parts.
The door shown in the photo is not the style I purchased. I got the full door unit. I needed them because the hose end was rotating in the inlet hole which caused the vacuum to stay on even with the switch off. The new units have a small anti rotation protrusion which is supposed to stop rotation. Unfortunately, it is so small that it does not function that well. It should protrude further off the face and be thicker or reinforced to prevent deforming. I suggest the rib be thickened and have support ribs at right angles to the top and bottom. This would form a U shape rather then the present I. It would be a simple change to the Die and require only a small amount of material per shot. Regards.

I purchased this cover to replace the original one installed with our system . This one looks much better and works great.
Product met my required needs and expectations.
Had to replace an older inlet as the new hoses did not fit. This one is more flush with the wall than the old one. It looks nice and was super is to install. Works great.
Looks nice and seals off well.
I looked everywhere for the covers, you had the best look and the best price!
This is not the exact inlet door I purchased. The one I selected had a completely smooth front face (no holes, indentations, or door latches visible).

Worked well could have been made a little heaver.
Replaed old with new and so nice I don't have to stop vacuuming to put hose back into outlets.
Was exactly what we needed
This was very easy to install. I followed the directions from the video and had it done in no time!
We bought 6 of these for our 20 year old system and they fit perfectly! We had to get the inlet valve extensions also because our outlets are in baseboards - very happy with items!
Glad I took the online recommendation to buy the full door model. I have dealt with MD Vacuum in the past and have always found the products to be sound, the prices fair, and the transaction and shipping to be seamless.
The quality of the inlet valve is good BUT the finish of the hinge end is poor and so these units must be installed hinge down or the unsightly hinge will be visible. The 180 degree full faceplate opening means that the hinge spring, with the unfinished melted plastic to hold it in place is visible if the unit is installed with the hinge up. This was my only disappointment and the fact that one end is unfinished should be disclosed or the finish on both ends should be improved.
Initially, we were ordering a new hose to replace our Nutone vac hose. The customer support was outstanding, we had to return one hose as it did not work with our inlets. My husband replaced the inlets, and all is working great.
Thank you for outstanding customer service!!!
easy to change; work perfectly; huge improvement in appearance!
Was easy to install. Works very well. Fixes our problem completely.
