Good morning to all. Here is your chuckle for the day.

These people are to funny because they are clueless. A 2 inch Shopvac attachment advertised as a vintage Kirby attachment.

Sadly, we shouldn't be surprised.

Tons of mis-information is out there. How many times have you seen that? Plenty. People are always spewing facts that are: enhanced, made up, etc.We see it ALL THE TIME.

You could use the hose attachment on a Kirby. If you put in emptor fee adjustments you could have a bottom part of a fill tube make a custom bag unit for your shakeout vacuums.

I'm really not surprised at all. I have seen it many times. Just find it funny that the seller believes it would fit on a 1 1/4 inch hose. Clearly they didn't try to fit it on the end of a Kirby hose or don't know what a Shopvac is.

It is liken to selling a Hoover attachment with the locking pin on it as an attachment for a Kirby vacuum. Similar attachment, different fit.

Some people are the dim bulbs in the chandelier of life.

I'm sure that it likely came with a Kirby they bought or sold and assumed it was for the Kirby. I got an Electrolux G from a Goodwill on eBay that came with Rainbow and Eureka tools last year. I didn't know they weren't Electrolux tools until I googled "r logo vacuum attachment" and seen the Rainbow logo matched the logo on the tool.

I just bought a Hoover Powerdrive from Goodwill that came with 3 dusting brushes, only one was the original to the machine, the other was from a Dirt Devil and a Kenmore.
