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.

Great Filter to Renew an old wet vac

My vac is 16 gallon from 1985. It keeps on running and with the new replacement filter it has the power of new!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

poor replacement for the old standard.

There isn't anything bad about the filter itself but the retainer isn't as good as the old winged screw I had. The instructions say discard your old retainer. Don't do it! I haven't been able to keep the filter in place since I did.

Less secure fit

The screw type attachment that keeps the filter secure doesn't seem to be as effective as the past style, where the top of the filter holder was separate and used a screw type device to hold it in place. A change but for the better ????
