  • Prevents clogging in the filter for maximum suction force

The Dustopper makes tackling the messiest jobs a breeze while also keeping your wet/dry vacuum free of dust and debris.

With its low-profile design, the Dustopper makes efficient use of space, making it ideal for any job site, workshop, or wherever you may need it. It’s easy to set up and can be ready to go in under a minute, straight out of the box. No holes to drill, no screws to tighten and no sealants to apply. Simply remove Dustopper from its box, place it on a standard 5-gallon bucket, and connect it to your shop vacuum with the hose and elbow provided. Disposal is as easy as lifting the Dustopper from its bucket and carrying the collected debris away.

The description says it includes a hose, all the reviews on YouTube show it also brings an elbow. Can someone confirm?

I know it doesn't come with 90 deg elbow due to the photo on HD website today 1/6/2019. My question why most people got it on last year 2018 have the elbow and it show on the box, does it come with 2 versions?

Will it still work if I line the Homer Bucket with a disposable plastic trash bag?
Asked by: Liner
The bag would need to be very secure. But even then, it may affect the cyclone action of the unit...I just periodically dump out the pale to a smaller garbage bag. Really very little mess.

Which port is the inlet, which is the outlet? It doesn’t specify online or on the packaging.

Asked by: TileGiy
The ports on the unit are labeled. The top is the suction from the vac and the side is the pickup.

Dustopper High Efficiency Dust Separator, 12 in. Dia with 2.5 in. Hose, 36 in. Long, Multi is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 684.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reusable easy to use effective plastic dust capturing device! Fit perfect on Home Depot mat... Great reusable easy to use effective plastic dust capturing device! Fit perfect on Home Depot matching orange bucket. Quick easy set up and within minutes was capturing debris. Prolonging shop vacs main filter life will quickly justify expense of cyclone and save time cleaning vac drum. Attaching cyclone to shop vac used as central home vac has prolonged emptying vac drum and filter life greatly and kept another filter out of the trash. Because of lighter debris, mostly dust, adding second five gallon bucket below first creating a deeper space captures even more dust making the cyclone even more effective. Hose, elbow and cyclone device fit together well and was easy set up. Cyclone is more flexible than expected but is strong enough to perform well. Vac suction draws cyclone down whenever intake is restricted by normal vacuuming. After over two months use Cyclone has performed as expected. Satisfied and recommend for effective pre-filtering and prolonging filter life of often used shop vac.

I have a high quality one that has both a disposable cloth bag and a HEPA filter. Because of the cost of the bags, I don't want to fill them with big debree. This separator not only catches the big chunks, but catches most of the dust as well. If anything, it does too good of a job for my application, as it catches dust I would rather go into the dust collector, so I have to be careful when emptying it. I have also used it with my shop vac, as it was intended to be used. I don't have to clean the filter nearly as often. I am going to have to make a cart to hold both the shop vac, and the 5 gallon bucket to make it more convenient. I will no longer have to sorry about the bucket tipping over if I pull to hard on the host. For now, I use a brick in the bottom of the bucket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1/2 the Dust went into Vac! I spent yesterday building my shop dust collection system for shaping polyurethane foam surfboards with an electric planer. I used a 6.5 hp Rigid Wet/Dry Vac for my vacuum. I connected two 5 gallon buckets together by cutting out the bottoms of each and screwing one on top and one below a piece of plywood mounted as a shelve with the middle jigsawed out (making a 10 gallon drum). I inserted a screw lid into the bottom bucket for ease of emptying the contents into a trash can. Long story short: The Duststopper setup only catches about 1/2 the dust, with all the rest going into my shop vac. I watched reviews on youtube and saw that this is a common occurrence. These same videos showed Oneida’s Dust Deputy working perfectly! Spend the extra $15 and buy Dust Deputy and make your own bucket system instead of buying their steel drum

I have it hooked up to an old craftsman vac and an ace hardware bucket, after three months of almost daily use of vacuuming up very fine dust from my scrollsaw there is only a trace of dust in the vacuum. I then purchased a second Dustopper and hooked it to a new rigid vac that I had purchased quite some time ago. I had to buy an adapter to get it hooked up to the vac. Put it on a Homer bucket and tried it out. I had more dust in the vacuum than in the bucket. I called Tom at the number that came in the box. Very nice guy and very helpful. He had me get rid of the elbow and make sure the Dustopper was tight on the bucket and check all the connections, now it works great. I would definitely buy another if I needed one. I hate cleaning the vacuum all the time.

Trying to keep my sawdust out of our home has always been a problem for a weekend woodworker, without a dust collection system. Saw some neat builds of other products and wanted to create my own from their basic design. I liked the example submitted to WOOD issue 259 as a starting point. Tough part was the ABS/PVC fittings to match up to the Ridgid shop vac, found the 2" rubber elbow with hose clamps (plumbing department) attached fit pretty well without the hose clamp. Great suction of the shaving from the holes cut into the plywood shelf design. Didn't know about the #dustopper pictures in Instagram, check them out before you build. Product performs as listed and much better than I expected and MADE IN THE USA. Keep up the good work Dustopper and thanks to HomeDepot for bring this product to the market and believing there are other less expensive ways to help control your shop dust.

For under $40, this is a great low profile option to keep your shop vac nice and clean when picking up "DRY" debris. Keeping the filter clean and free of dust, no more clogging up the motor and reducing suction and getting a face full of dust trying to shake/blow off the filter w/ your air compressor. Since you get the Dustopper AND a 3 Ft hose (and connecting elbow), it's a great bargain and much better than using a stock 7-ft hose to connect the dustopper to the shop vac. This dust separator works great for smaller "DRY" stuff. If you try using it to suck up water or wet debris, it doesn't do as well. I would said, it is 90% effective. I sucked up about 8-9 gallons of water, dirt and composition roofing grit, and there was maybe about a gallon that made it into the vac when all said and done. Still easier to dump the 5-gal bucket vs a 16-gal shop vac, and the smooth walls of the bucket make it easier for cleanup afterwards. FYI, the HD homer bucket is not strong enough to handle a 6.5HP motor from the shop vac. Once you get suction, the sides of the bucket just collapse. Its just a matter of time before the sides develop a crack and fail. Consider a stronger alternative to the homer bucket if you have a high suction or high HP unit.

I needed some sort of dust collection system, after seeing videos and reviews I bought a dustopper, Rigid Vac, and of course a Homer bucket to complete the system. I've had it for about a month now. It really works great. Just a couple little things I experienced is, one it doesn't really snap on to tight to the bucket, I would have thought it needed to be tighter for a better seal, the second thing is the noise, it does make a whistle/whirling type noise but I always have ear protection on anyways so it doesn't bother me at all. Maybe some type of rubber o ring around the top of the bucket? I don't know maybe try a few things. It does work exactly how it says it does, maybe better! I love it!
