Purchased to attach my shop vac to the 2.5 inch dust collection port on my table saw (Dewalt DW745). Unfortunately, this product does not work for that purpose. However, you can hack together an adapter that will work using this product and a spray paint cap (see photos).

Not much you can say about three pieces of plastic. They seemed to do what they were designed to do. In my case I needed to buy some additional plumbing parts to adapt the adapters to the exhaust tubes of my power tools, but I managed to make it all work which is what counts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rosif3r 2 out of 3 ain't bad
I got this set of 3 because i needed to step down my 2.25" shopvac to fit some attachments i had from a prior smaller vacuum. The picture i uploaded shows me using 2 of the stepped adapters to neck it down to the attachment. There's a third straight piece that i'm not sure what to do with, but since 2/3 of the pack did what I needed, I'm not so concerned about that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jbcd Can't step up from 1 7/8" to 2.5"
I have a ridgid shop vac with the 1 7/8“ hose diameter (one of the most common sizes). This kit will step it down to 1 1/4 inch successfully, but other than that it is worthless. It won't step up to 2.5" (the most common tool exhaust port size), both parts are male, so I can't connect it to my ridgid table saw, Dewalt miter saw, or literally any other tool in my shop. I also purchased the multi step adapter from ridgid, with the same issue. This is insane.... There's no way to go from 1 7/8" hose to 2.5" exhaust port without using duct tape.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AaBe not what I needed...
The vacuum adapter kit did not have the correct fitting for adapting a Rigid 1-7/8" shop vac hose to a Dewalt 2-1/2" tablesaw exhaust port. Was not able to discern this from the outside of the packaging due to the tight nesting of components and lack of clarity on the packaging wrapper.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hamguy One out of three usable.
Nearly $9 for a set of three adapters that likely cost Rigid 30 cents. $3 apiece would be okay if they were all useful. Obviously, these pieces are bundled only for profit, not for the customer. Only recommended because I could find no other options.
One positive, I found that 2" PVC pipe connectors will fit into my shop tools dust ports, allowing me to need only 1 of these Rigid hose connectors. One wrap of duct tape around the PVC connector makes for a good fit.

Works as described. Have used the connector to join two hoses
