The craftsman #12816, "red stripe" filter is a good quality filter that Sears has carried for many years. I like the fact that it is interchangeable on most of their larger vacuums. A good product at a decent price.

I have several older Craftsman shop vacuums. These units have filters with separate cover plates that hold the filter in place. They unit has a threaded stud and a hold down nut that screws onto the plate and holds the filter in place. The hold down nut has a sort of flat lever handle attached on one side used to turn the nut. The new replacement filter has an integrated cover plate with a raised center ring presumably for newer vacuum designes. When I tried to screw on the threaded nut as shown in the instructions (with the lever up and away from the filter), I could not get it to catch the threads. I could only get it to catch if I flipped the nut over (with the lever side down towards the filer). This caused the integrated ring in the filter cover to distort and crush a bit. The fit was very poor. I did verify that the filter number is correct for my vacuums. The old design worked very well. If you have an older unit with the lever type of nut you should try to get a replacement filter with the original design using a separate cover plate.

When I bought my Craftsman shop vac I didn't realize that the filter was proprietary to Sears. It works great in my Craftsman shop vac.
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.
