Locking hoses for the CT vacs.
« on: February 23, 2012, 06:29 PM »
I'm sure its been mentioned before, but I just can't get over the fact that they don't lock.

I'm not concerned about the hose popping out, I know it's secure.  I just hate how much pressure is needed to secure / remove it.  I have mild tendonitis in my rt elbow, and so this even even more important to me (and probably lots of older users)  but even when my arm was OK, I found removing the hose a minor PITA.

Bosch has an anti-static, twist-on connector, so it certainly can be done.

I have to agree. I don't have mild tendonitis like the OP, but I do on occasion plug the hose in a little too hard. Then I have to struggle with the hose when I go to unplug it after that. A locking hose sounds like a great solution to me.
