This is a replacement electric suction hose assembly designed to fit Electrolux, Aerus, or Lux Canister Vacuum Cleaners. This LE Style Hose works with newer canister models, and can be identified with the V-Notch electric contacts on the end of the hose that fits into the canister. Some of the models the Lux LE Style Hose fits are; Ambassador, Ambassador Plus, Diplomat, Diplomat LX, Hi-tech 2100. This replacement attachment hose is a much better design then the original style cloth vinyl hose, as it's a much more durable material. This switch allows you to turn your electric power nozzle off with the flip of finger tip, when vacuuming hardwood floors. No need to remove the carpet attachment, and look for the brush with this new feature.

Like other reviewers have said, came in a box without padding. Also was not wrapped in plastic. Just sitting in the box. Looked fine. First thing I noticed when using it is that the handle does not swivel. My fault for not verifying this. It's kinda of annoying. Plus no on/off switch. It did work well with the power head attached and swept the carpets just fine. My non electrical aluminum wand that I use for the other attachments did not fit tight with this hose so I just crimped the end of my wand a touch and now all is good. Lastly I noticed that the pistol grip had a tiny crack where it is screwed to the hose housing. Factory must have over tightened the screw. Not a big deal I think it will be fine just another annoyance. All in all this is a good product for what it is. If your looking for OEM then buy OEM. Otherwise it will get the job done for 1/2 the price.
The unit I received does NOT have the "New and improved" switch. The molded plastic handle has the words "on" and "off" but no switch, just solid plastic.
Also, this hose fits fine, but be aware it does not contain the "swivel" that my original unit had. Not a huge problem, but there are times when it gets twisted up on itself and I have to stop, disconnect it, and untwist the hose. This is a detail I missed when comparing it to a more expensive alternative here on Amazon.
Took longer than stated to get this. Shipping box was damaged and the item wasn't packages well at all. It was just in the box not wrapped in anything to protect it. The hose was bent at pistol grip to make it fit in the box and this made it crooked. I don't know yet if this will effect the performance. I wasn't pleased with the way this company handled the shipping.
