This method of connecting type 1 vacuum cleaning attachments to the wand (handle) is done by inserting the attachment into the wand coupling. The outer cap (wand coupling nut) is then turned in a clockwise direction which compresses a phosphor bronze compression ring around a groove in the neck of the attachment. The ring will hold the attachment in place and still allow it to swivel. Both the wands and attachments referred to are available in either metal or plastic and are considered to be 1-1/2". Important note: The inside diameter of the wand coupling, although used on a 1-1/2" diameter tube is actually 1-9/16". The neck of the attachment is also 1-9/16" to match the wand coupling. This diameter was introduced many years ago and is not used by as many manufacturers as the 1-1/2" inside diameter wand coupling. Wands with a type 1 connection will accept type 2 attachments but there will be a gap between the attachment and the wall of the wand coupling resulting in reduced vacuum performance.
The method of connecting symbol Type 2 vacuum cleaning attachments to the wand (handle) is the same as for type Type 1. The only difference between symbol Type 1 and symbol Type 2 attachments and wands is that the outside diameter necks on the tools and the inside diameter on the wand coupling is 1-1/2". Both the wands and attachments referred to are available in metal or plastic and are considered 1-1/2" in size. Important note: Symbol Type 2 wands (handles) will not accept symbol Type 1 attachments. Symbol Type 2 tools however will fit inside a symbol Type 1 wand coupling but there will be a gap between the attachment and wand coupling resulting in a loss of vacuum performance.
