this was advertised as working with a b&d central vac unit. the inlet is completely incompatable as is the cover. I shall have to shop elsewhere. thanks.
The top is unsightly because that is where the spring is located. The vacuum hose does not fit snigly so when i use the vacuum i have to make sure i don't jiggle the hose and lose the connection. (MD NOTES: You can turn the inlet upside down so it looks better. The hose fit is universal which means the hose is probably worn.)
