Bad fit in older vacuums

I have several older Craftsman shop vacuums. These units have filters with separate cover plates that hold the filter in place. They unit has a threaded stud and a hold down nut that screws onto the plate and holds the filter in place. The hold down nut has a sort of flat lever handle attached on one side used to turn the nut. The new replacement filter has an integrated cover plate with a raised center ring presumably for newer vacuum designes. When I tried to screw on the threaded nut as shown in the instructions (with the lever up and away from the filter), I could not get it to catch the threads. I could only get it to catch if I flipped the nut over (with the lever side down towards the filer). This caused the integrated ring in the filter cover to distort and crush a bit. The fit was very poor. I did verify that the filter number is correct for my vacuums. The old design worked very well. If you have an older unit with the lever type of nut you should try to get a replacement filter with the original design using a separate cover plate.

Filter is always available at my SEARS store when I need it.

Wanted to use my Craftsman shop vac to clean out my fireplace and was happy that this filter was in stock for same day pick up at my local SEARS store. I buy 2-3 of these every year and it is always in stock when I need it. which is great because I don't have to delay my projects waiting for delivery.

The Filter is Fine - the Mechanism to Hold it in Place Isn't

|

I have an older wet/dry vac that uses the red stripe filter. Some years ago the manufacturer changed the screw mechanism to hold the filter in place. It's a lousy design. The filter keeps falling off the inside of the lid into the canister. I had to experiment with different solutions and now use a 7/16 nut to hold it in place. So far so good. Please bring back the old design.

Been using these for 40 years

My old Sears shop vac has been rugged and dependable, sweeping up everything I throw at it. These filters work great and I stock up on them when they go on sale. I have 7 of them ready to go.
