How To Measure Your Diameter

Very often our customers ask us, will this tool fit my vacuum cleaner, or will this attachment for a Hoover will fit my Electrolux? The good news is, its really quite easy to figure this out using a simple ruler.

You see, most vacuum cleaners come in the same diameter tubes, hoses and attachments, this means, if you know the diameter of your vacuum cleaner, you can buy any other tool with the same diameter and it will fit!

Below is an easy step by step self help article to help you determine the diameter of your vacuum cleaner. After you found it, you can easily use the site search to type in the diameter you are looking for.  


  1. Find a ruler
  2. Place the ruler on the hollow part of the front of the handle with the zero on one end.
  3. Make sure the ruler is in the center of the handle hollow (see illustration B)
  4. Measure the distance in millimeters from one end of the circle to the other end.






Please note you are measuring the opening including the ages in this case (external diameter)


There are 3 common diameters your handle can have:

32mm (most common), 35mm (common), 36mm (mainly commercial vacuum cleaners)


If you measuring the rod (metal tube) you need to do the same thing just make sure you measuring the end that plugs into the floor tool.
