|For extra thick walls and floors - inlet extension should be used to connect inlet to flanged fitting.|
Refer to Figure 1. Large end of inlet extension should be cut to length to allow proper seating of inlet against floor or wall. Apply cement to smaller end of inlet extension and insert flanged fitting. Make sure extension is well seated and sealed into flanged fitting. Pull low voltage 2-conductor wire through mounting bracket and attached to terminal screws on back of inlet.
Refer to Figure 2. Insert inlet tube into top of extension. Secure inlet in place with two screws.
Cheaper hose socks found on the market use a lower quality material and are rough, easily torn and don't provide a tight fit around the hose. They generally don't stand up to the average household abuse for more than 6 months. Pay for quality the first time!
NOTE: As a courtesy, when you purchase a hose and hose sock from ThinkVacuums.com we will install it on your hose free of charge. If you order the hose sock separately the helpful video below will guide you through how easy it is to put on.
