          Was just what I needed to mount my vacuum and still reach my entire garage. Was able to adapt original vacuum hose, without extra adapters. A bit stiff, but manageable.

            Good Hose to extend the reach of my Vacuum
            I bought this hose to extend the reach of my shop vac but none of the adapters that come with the hose fit my vacuum at first I though to return it but I remembered that I bought another kit from ridgid to use to vacuum my car and that kit came with an adapter so I decide to try and maybe I can connect the long hose to my old vacuum and that worked perfectly so now I have a 26 long hose instead a 20 and if I buy another adapter I can increase to 32 using my car vacuum hose so it worked

              Doesn't fit most 2-1/2" Rigid vacs
              What a bummer! What you get is not what is spec'ed out. Over the years I have bought 4 different 2-1/2" hoses. All fit fine on my 3 different Rigid vac's. It was time to buy another so I checked the spec's, confirmed it was a 2-1/2" hose bought it, waited 12 days to get it, opened the box and found 4 connectors in the box. All 4 were only 2-1/4". Sad to say a 2-1/4" hose does NOT fit in a 2-1/2" hole. The gap is so large I can fit 3 pencils in the gap. See pictures below. Time to do a return

                    DYI
                    I thought I might be able to adapt the 2-1/2 hose to fit my smaller size wet/dry vacuum to make the hose longer. I did kind of make it work and I think it will be fine for my needs. So far it works OK for the dry vacuum and I am hoping it will work for the wet vacuum as well. I haven't found a adapter yet that will actually work.

                    DOESN'T FIT - Plain and Simple
                    Stop posting call customer service. You market this as fitting ALL Rigid Shop vacs and it simply DOES NOT! Why do I have to make an other trip due to your incompetence? Time is money and you have wasted my time so you owe me money. Measurements are wrong, statement that it fits all Rigid Vacs are wrong. Flat out lies. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT.

                        I am using this to attach to my rigid vac...
                        I am using this to attach to my rigid vac in the garage but I don’t want to move the dust collection cart when we use it to clean our cars. I bought this item to provide that reach we were looking for. If you’re hesitating, don’t, just get it. The only thing I’ll say is the box arrived completely destroyed by some third party carrier after they held it at their warehouse for over a week and finally delivered on a holiday. I’ll ship to store from now on even though that can also be a pain.
