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.

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.

No problems with dust

I bought this along with our new Wet/Dry vac. We us it to clean up cured resin, fiber glass, and plastic dust around the shop. It seems to do a really good job. Especially around our drill press and band saw, this filter works great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good value for price

reasonable price for a good quality replacement for our shop vac. Somewhat generic and that helps for future replacements since our shop vac has been around for a while.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great filter

I wanted to get a second filter and rotate them to keep the filter clean. I use my Craftsman ShopVac everywhere (garage, patio, basement, laundry room, drive way). A clean filter provides greater suction and causes less strain on the motor. This is a very durable product. I highly recommend it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Filter fits just as it should!

This filter fits both of my vacuums, so I know that I can continue to get them. Availability of parts is a must, and the price was reasonable. I bought it bundled, so it was a very good deal.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

THE NEW DESIGN DOES NOT WORK ON OLDER VACUUMS!!

The new filter comes with a cheap nut that does not work on older vacuums with the screw shaft. several times I have opened the vacuum to find the filter laying in the bottom of the tub. I have had to drill a hole in the nut and shaft and secure it with a screw. Bad form Sears!!
