Bulkhead Straight Hose Adapter

This hose adapter is specifically made for a 2-1/2″ shop vac cuff.  As a result of design, the adapter has three screw holes that screw in on the back side of the fitting.  Because it is made specifically for Cat 6 Tools’ filter separators, it is sold mainly as a replacement part.  However, for those Do-it-yourselfers, this item may well be a valuable addition to home made vacuum systems.
