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.

Great filter

Bought this for my new shop vac. It worked great cleaning up after very messy remodeling dust and particles. It is easy to insert and remove to clean.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Poor new design

i purchased this new filter for my old.16 gal vac. Very disappointed in the new mounting method. As others.have said the change in design eliminating the old open-top design allows the filter to slip and fall to the bottom of the cannister allowing the motor to fill with dust allspice allowing the room to fill with dust as the filter is no longer in place.

Super filter for a super vac!

I found the right filter for my shop vac with no problem at the Sears tool department. It works so good and picks up massive amounts of dirt without spreading it in the air and throughout the room!! Love it!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Shop Vac Filter

I have had my shop vac for 7 years I this is the first time I have replaced it. I use it on a weekly basis, mostly for cleaning up my cars and the garage. It is easy to clean and lasted me longer than I would have expected.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I will use this filter in my craftsman vac. I have used these filters for a long time and never had any trouble. They are easy to clean and provide good filtration.

Great filter, perfect fit

There is nothing like a fresh new filter in your shop-vac. I always wait too long to replace these. The fit is perfect and does a good job catching the dust. Just make sure you take it out before sucking up water.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.
