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.

It just works! It is an item you need. It works as advertised.

It has even been improved by a built in 'cap' to hold the filter to the inside of the vacuum. Included was a nut to attach the filter cap. Nicely done.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Replacement Filter does the job

Purchased to replace a nasty, well used, filter which lasted me over 2 years of moderate use. Reasonable value.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect Fit

Unlike the generic 7 inch filter, the Red Stripe is made for my Craftsman vac and fits perfectly at a price lower than generic.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Thanks Sears!

Love my Craftsman wet/dry vac. Very easy to use and great storage space for all attachments. I've never used a wet/dry vac that performed this well. Does a great job in my work shop/ garage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
