As per an earlier review, I too have a 16 gallon Craftsman shop vac that utilizes a "red-stripe" filter. The vac is about 2 + years old so I was probably due for new filter. Even though the measurements of this replacement filter are slightly different than the Craftsman original filter, this replacement fit just fine, but did require that I use the original cap from the old filter instead of the one provided so it could be secured the the appropriate filter location on the vacuum. No problem - it fit just fine. I am very happy with this product and would definitely buy one again versus paying an outrageous amount to buy one from Sears.
I have a craftsman 8 gallon shop vac (~2001) that requires a 17884 replacement filter. This filter is noted as an appropriate replacement, but is not even close (incorrect diameter).
This fits "OLDER" model Ridgid Vac's ( circa 1999). I had a hard time finding one locally so I checked Amazon and happened across this filter. Perfect fit.
I have noticed most folks that give negative reviews really don't do the proper research to actually understand what they are buying and end up blaming the site or seller for their own ignorance.
