Product Overview

Have a RIDGID wet/dry vacuum filter on hand whenever the job calls for it with this 4-count, 1-layer pleated paper filter value pack - buy more and save more. The 1-layer filtration system captures everyday dirt and debris such as sawdust, dirt and typical debris found in a basement, garage or vehicle. The filter can be washed and, if dried properly, reused. Changing shop vac filters often is strongly recommended to increase the vac's performance and to help extend vacuum life as it protects the motor from harmful dust and debris. The 1-layer standard filter fits all RIDGID wet/dry shop vacs 5 Gal. and larger and should only be used for dry pickup. RIDGID provides other filtration offerings, including VF5000 Fine Dust Filter (sold separately), VF6000 HEPA Media Filter (sold separately) and VF7000 Wet Filter (sold separately), depending on the job application and type of cleanup mess. Also, a range of value pack sizes (2-count, 8-count and 16-count) are available to accommodate a variety of project needs. With its patented Qwik Lock feature, the filter simply snaps on or off the shop vacuum for easy cleaning and to quickly switch filter options.
  • Washable and reusable
  • Traps typical shop, garage and jobsite debris
  • Simple installation
  • Includes 4 filters
  • Fits 5 Gal. RIDGID Vacs and 6 Gal. to 9 Gal. Husky vacs

not a factory fit for older Craftsman 16 Gal. Shop Vac
This did not fit well on my older Craftsman 16 gal. shop vac. I made it work, but it is actually a little too long.

Response from RIDGIDMay 31, 2022
Hello maxn, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned about your disappointment. It's true that this vac will not fit the Craftsman vacs. As stated on the details on this page, these filters fit 5 plus Gal. RIDGID Wet/Dry Vacs and 6 to 9 Gal. Husky vacs. Please consider contacting Craftsman support to find out the compatible filter for your vac. If you have questions or concerns, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you.

      Does not fit the VacMaster wall mounted vacuum
      I purchased the wall mount VacMaster vacuum from Home Depot online. The order system recommended I also purchase a 2-count package of replacement filters (Rigid brand). I thought that would be a good idea. It wasn't. These filters will not fit the VacMaster vacuum. The Vaacmaster filter is open on top and bottom, the Rigid ones suggested here are closed on top and so cannot fit. (see picture attached) I gave the filters high marks for the review because I suspect they work well in OTHER vacuums but not the VacMaster wall mounted one.

        Thus filter is more than adequite for shop and jobsite work. It fits tightly on the vac so there is no leakage around the filter. I use it for collecting dust from sanders and picking up dust that my larger dust collection system misses from my jointer, planer, table saw, etc.

        the 1-layer everyday dirt pleated paper filter fits perfectly on my 5 gal rigid wet dry vacuum. very easy to install, just unscrew the nut at the bottom of old filter, slide it down and install new filter, screw the nut on and done! takes mere minutes and you are ready to vacuum. there is no dust escape with this filter, it is contained in the vacuum holding tank. i have had this for about a month and love how well it works and meets all my expectations you may want in a filter.

        Though it is a different design compared to the original, it works perfectly. Original design, as shown in photo, is open on both ends and utilizes a separate plate to seal the bottom of the filter. The new design has the plate built in and works fine.
