      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.

      Bad fit in older vacuums

      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.

      Fits My Craftsman Shop Vac Perfectly

      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 would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.
