Generic Flexible Crevice Tool for all Vacuum Hoses
Generic Flexible Crevice Tool is affordable and very useful tool for cleaning hard to reach places. The tool itself is 24 inches (~61 cm) long, it is flexible and bends easily up to 180° and it fits all canister vacuums and uprights with hoses accepting 1 1/4 inch (32 mm) inner diameter, friction-fit, attachments.
Note: some slim uprights without hoses also can use this tool, but before purchasing this cleaning tool, verify if your vacuum models is compatible with it.
People having vacuums with different diameter should use plastic adapters. They are available online, they are cheap and sturdy and last for a long time – in most cases until they are lost or somebody steps on them …
Tool has three distinct parts, with only the middle section being made of rubber and being flexible. Such construction allows cleaning hard to reach areas like under or alongside furniture and appliances, dryer vents, heating ducts etc. Rest of the tool is made of hard plastic.
When bending the tool, middle section holds the rectangular shape well, but if it gets clogged, it collapses – in that case, stop vacuuming and unclog the crevice tool.
Weak spots of the tool are connections between sections – these parts are under stress when the tool is really bent. In most situations, where tool is just slightly bent, mechanical stress is rather limited and tool can last. However, if the tool is often bent by pressing the front part off the, for example, floor, tool can break on connection points.
Front cleaning end measures approximately (H x W) 1 1/2 x 1/2 inches (~3.8 x 1.3 cm). If you have need to clean even narrower places, you should consider Micro Attachment Kit.
Generic Flexible Crevice Tool is excellent cleaning tool suitable for 1 1/4 inch (32 mm) diameter vacuums. Design is sound and logical, but the tool could be more robust and durable. On the other hand, tool comes with excellent price tag.
