new filter design does not fit well on older sears shop vacs
I just picked up a new 17816 replacement filter for my older 12 gal sears shop vac. Sears has redesigned the filter AGAIN, and the new design does not fit well on my older shop vac with a threaded stud that was used for decades on Sears shop vacs. I have several of these older models that I have bragged up until now. The instructions say that the new filter will fit the older design vacs, but the new integral mounting plate has a raised fitting with threads inside for the newer shop vacs. That fitting is so high that the filter nut included with my vac to hold the filter in place barely engages the threaded shaft on the vac by a couple of threads. I am afraid the nut is going to fall off with use, and the filter will come unseated and allow dirt and debris to get sucked thru the motor. (Maybe this is designed obsolescence by the new engineers on the team) The new 17816 filter no longer looks like the one pictured above. Sears, you need to redesign the new filter to fit old vacs better or you need to bring back the old design and give this new design a different model #, and designate it to be used only on the new unthreaded support stud design.

General Purpose Red Stripe Vac Filter

They changed this filter and I was very hesitant to try this new one. I bought two for two of my Craftsman Shop Vacs and they work great. They are very easy to clean and install.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

filter top

My main concern is how the top of this filter has to be opened to allow the filter to fit over the center post. The filters need to be changed back to the way the were and that is that both ends are opened. You use the replaceable top each time. Would I recommend this product? No, though the only one that can be used.

Problems with Old 16 Gallon Shop Vac

Purchased this filter through a small Sears store about a month ago. It is a remodel from the prior filter design, as it has an end cap with compression-type nut which replaces the old round plate and screw on nut. The theory is that as you screw the new filter cap onto the filter housing, it forces the compression portion of the new cap onto the old threaded stud on the vacuum. I was told by the store that this is the new approach, and the only filter solution for my old 16 gallon vacuum. The filter itself is a good product. The attachment mechanism in where I have problems. I have attached the new filter in the old vacuum twice only to find when emptying the vacuum that the filter has fallen off into the tank. Luckily, the motor itself has a course filter to avoid pulling debris into the motor. To be fair, the problems I experienced could be specific to my old vacuum, but I wanted to give folks a heads up.
