Should have gotten the one with the push button to release. The Friction wand moves around and doesn't stay on straight, but does work. Live and learn. But for the price, I couldn't beat it. Been missing the wand for over 2 years now and it's definitely better than sweeping or using the hose with out an extension. I just didn't want to have to spend $80+ on a bunch of stuff I didn't need. Already have 2 hoses. Will buy other accessories from this site no doubt about it.
I use this with the 27ft stretch hose, so I'm not sure if it is a problem with the wand or the hose. The friction tends to give way after vacuuming for a while and disconnects from the hose which sends the hose flying across the room. Would be better to have a more permanent attachment between the two in my opinion.
great- just wish it were a little longer- have it fully extended and will probably never shorten, still too short for a 6'3 user
New floor tool falls off the wand, do not know if this is a problem with the wand or foor tool.
Didn't realize that there was a notch at the end - had a hard time to connect to brush - different than the one I bought previously
