Bought new hose, needed to fit old Kenmore System, worked great!!
Great product made the system we have work with the new hose
My mom has a Kenmore central vacuum system with the proprietary 1.25" wall valves and she needed a new hose. All hoses I found were for the 1.5" wall valves. This adapter saved the day by adapting the new hose to the old valves. Mom is very happy with the new hose with the adapter tapped into the end. This metal stub tube was exactly what the doctor ordered to fix the ailing vacuum system. Thanks MD Central Vacuum!!
Had to replace very old hose. Since the newer hoses are bigger diameter, I thought I might have to replace all the wall inlets. This allows the new hoses to work with the old 1.25" inlet. Works great!
Had purchased the black garage kit but it didn't fit our outlet from late 70's so found this short tubing with 1.25" and it worked perfectly! So glad you carry this short conversion piece.
It's perfect. Just what we needed. Thanks so much.
The metal tube fit perfectly into the older Kenmore inlet valves in our home.
It did the job.
This metal stub tube perfectly meshes my older kenmore central vacuum (which works fine), with the newer Kenmore hose kit (which has a different diameter) I purchased to replace a worn out one.
I ordered what appeared to be a 1-1/4 x 1-1/2 reducer along with a new 1-1/2" inlet. The reducer was ordered so that I could use my existing 1-1/4 hose with the new inlet. The website was unclear. The order fulfillment was obviously completed without any thinking by the staff person.
The product is fine. Just doesn't fit my hose. I think I ordered the wrong size hose originally.
GREAT FIT AND QUALITY
The metal stub adapter works. However, the first half inch of the adapter should be about a quarter inch smaller in diameter for a better fit.
An easy and great working fix for those of us with older central vacs.
Did the trick....got my system up and running again.
This was exactly the transition piece I was looking for in order to connect my new central vacuum hose with my old Sears central vacuum wall suction outlet. The new hoses that are sold today have too big of a diameter to fit into the old system. This inserted into the hose and plugged into the wall without any effort. AWESOME piece to have.
Adapter doesn't fit well into smaller wall outlet. It is slightly too big and it is difficult to get it to stay in the wall outlet. (MD NOTES: We have very few issues with it working properly in a 1.25 inch diameter inlet such as Kenmore.)
