Perhaps the pleated filter is the only one required to keep dust from the motor?

Answer: 
I think you may be missing the point -- the old pleated filter is removable and a new one easily attached (when the old filter is so filthy it looks unusable, or it got wet too often, etc. )

I have a older Ridgid shop vac, probably 6-7 gal. It uses a plastic filter nut and plate to hold the filter on. Will this "Quick Lock" filter replace that style?

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting RIDGID® Customer Support.
Please be informed that the filters with separate filter plate are no longer available. The ones with the integrated rubber cover replaced the old style. If your vac uses the old filter cage with the threaded stem, the filter nut is still needed to secure the filter with the built-in cover. Furthermore, VF5000 will fit the 5 gallon and larger vacs.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 124 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Filters fine dust just as advertised. We had chipped up a tile floor which left a lot of dust from the mastic. Using this filter, there was no dust coming out of the exhaust of my Ridged shop vac. The only thing I wished I had purchased as an additional accessory, was the exhaust diffuser attachment which prevents the exhaust from having a strong stream of air that can blow dust around as you use the shop vac. I had to make sure I was holding the vacuum in a position to aim the exhaust air away from the area I was vacuuming. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Filter Traps the dirt and dust great. Work great cleaning the fireplace out catching all that fine dust and ash October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacement filter This is a replacement for the old paper filter. Having had this type of filter before, I couldn't do without. The washable feature is what I was really after. May 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product does the job We needed a replacement filter for our Ridgid 5 gallon wet/dry vac. We could choose among three grades of replacement filters. The vac when new had come with the standard grade filter. We chose the mid-grade replacement because it claimed to filter out finer dirt particles. I don't have any way of knowing of how much more effective it was or whether it was worth the added cost. I can say our basement is cleaner. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like a Champ Filters out drywall dust with no blow-by. Clean it up once! September 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Necessary for proper usage I use vacuum frequently and filter is necessary for usage. August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommend Excellent filter, easy to clean, really holds the dirt in the canister. Even dry wall dust Couldnt escape. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very easy to install Does the job and wasn't as expensive as I expected for replacement filter. August 23, 2016
