Answers

I would tend to doubt it unless the Shark hose is also 2.5" in diameter and the free end happens to fit one of the adapters that come with the Ridgid hose. You could, even if the hoses don't match, jury-rig a connection between them if you like that type of challenge.

Will this fit Ridgid Model # WD1641 16 Gal 5.0 HP vac that came with a 1 7/8 in hose?

Asked by iGlow July 9, 2020
5
Answers

Well if your Shop-Vac came with a 1 and 7/8 inch hose this hose is 2 and 1/2 inches so there would definitely need to be an adapter. And of course you would need to use either larger accessories or have yet another adapter to use your current accessories

OKay, the picture shoes three adapters. What do they do?

Asked by txbd75 April 19, 2020

Answers

One adapter is the same as the one on the hose, the other is a female a little smaller, the third one you can cut off the end and fit it in the hose. Hope that was helpful

Yes (assuming your Craftsman shop vacuum is 2-1/4 inch). This hose works fine with my 2-1/4 inch couplers.

Answers

I'd recommend you actually bring the fitting to the store and try it out to see, especially if it is not going to be a permanent connection. It works smoothly with Ridgid vacuum but I've had to force it on other connectors, like thein baffles.

I use it to anchor the loose end of the stock hose. Make one loop then it "keeps" the hose while transporting or in storage.l

Can the adapters be removed?

Asked by JSH March 15, 2020
5
Answers

Not advisable. Once they go on it would be difficult to remove. And no, you can't cut the hose in half and slap on the additional adapters. Notice that the empty factory end for your choice of adapter has that flared section. Unfortunately I don't know a source of after market hose ends that would fit on a cut section.

Recently worked on my water damaged ceiling. Using this hose made it so convenient as I didn't have to move the wet/dry vac around at all in a tight space.

Better buy than the 13 foot. If you have an older Rigid shop vac like me, mine is a 6.25 from 2001, the connector in the vac is slightly larger than the newer 2.5 inch vac and Home depot or Rigid online don't have the older fitting. I found one on a online parts store. Shame on Home depot.

Bought this 20 foot long hose with adapters on sale as it says it fits Ridgid Vacuums and the original hose was splitting after a couple years. None of the newly supplied adapters were large enough to fit this vac, 16gal, 5hp. After some research found that Ridgid doesn't make anything but original hose to fit the inlet of 2 5/8". The original 7ft hose is just too short and too small diameter to get the same thing again. Decided to keep and adapted to fit the oversize vacuum openings by using part of the old hose coupler. Hopefully it last longer without cracking. Poor design on Ridgid part not to be the same as the rest of their vacuums or to at least offer a separate adapter.

Response from RIDGIDMay 28, 2020
Hello 900rr1, Thanks for your feedback and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. While we're not certain how the splitting happened on the original hose, note that the hoses will naturally wear out as you use the vac. We could inspect whether it's a manufacturing defect or it's normal wear and tear. In addition, it's true that our new hoses no longer have the adapter for the old vacuum models. However, you may call call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll see how we can be of help. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid
Older Vac needs another adapter, ( Not included )
Im sure that this will work great, its a plastic hose. Howerver, if you have an older style vac with a red clip that connects to the vac, this hose nor any of the included adapters will work. Even though the box says older style and newer style adapter they are all too small of a diameter to fit the older style vac. From that point out everything is the same diameter so the new hose wont fit to the old hose or to the older vac. You have to call them and have them send you one. More delays. You would think that they could send you just one more piece of plastic to make it work, but no, they dont.

Hello RussellJ, Thanks for writing a review and we're terribly sorry for the inconvenience. Yes, the new locking hoses do not have this red locking adapter for the old vacuums, but we are willing to help you. We just need the part number of the hose purchased, and model and serial number of the vac. Feel free to call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

I am happy with my locking 2.5 inch hose for my Craftsman shop vac, but I am not happy that none of the adapters in the picture on the Home Depot website were included in my box. I called the customer support line and got a number to call to get the missing adapters shipped to me, but nobody answered the phone (even when I asked the Home Deport support person to call). I left a message, but so far have not gotten a response. When I called Home Depot customer service again, the agent was sympathetic, but said the only option right now is to return the product and get another one. Since I had some rubber coupling sleeves lying about, I had already installed the hose onto my dust collection manifold. I am not really interested in returning it now. I'm hoping that someone at Home Depot reads these reviews and can get me my missing parts.

Nice to have a longer replacement hose. The only thing was, I didn’t get the older style end fitting to go into my shop vac with my replacement hose. I contacted them and they sent me the end fitting.

I purchased this to make up hoses to connect my Ridgid Vac to various equipment. Having 20 ft of hose allowed me to make several flexible connections without having to move the equipment to do so. The only drawback is there are no screw-in fittings that fit the enlarged ends of this hose which would make it easier to mate to standard 2 1/2 inch fittings on various equipment. Like any time you decide to hook a vacuum to shop tool you will have to make a trip to the hardware store or on line wood working vendor for parts.
