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.

Filter is fine, the nut is junk

On several occasions, the filter nut has come off causing the filter to drop. The first few times it wasn't that big of an issue because I was outside. That is, until recently when I was vacuuming in the house and the filter fell off due to the nut and made a HUGE mess in the house. Fortunately, I retained the original nut that came with my vacuum and am now using that to keep the filter on. The nut that comes with the filter screws on to the filter and only clips onto where the original nut screws on. This is not a good design at all. If you are retrofitting this onto a vacuum where the filter was held on by a nut that screws on, keep the original nut and use that for these new filters.

We always purchase this for our Craftsman Vac

This filter lasts a long time. We also knock it out a few times when it gets dirty, so we can "recycle" it and have it last longers. Does a really good job for us.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect Fit

This item fit my 16 gal Craftsman shop vac. They changed the hold down cover and nut by integrating it to the filter.
