Let's play a little game here because I'm curious to know the answers myself.
I want to know what all names did Preco put on their turbo nozzles? I have seen Preco, Singer, and Signature. I know they sold with other brands like Rainbow but I don't recall seeing other names on them. For example was the one for Rainbow labeled ?

The one that was sold as an optional part for the Lewyts only said Power Brush on it.

WOW, I love the blue one, I never seen a blue one in person, the one we had on our Black & Decker said Black & Decker on it, but it was white with a tan bottom. The first one that came with the house broke right away, the elbow was installed from the outside with a big nut around where it swiveled and I remember it broke pretty fast, the second nozzle which did not have the Black&Decker logo on it had a different elbow, one that was attached from the inside, that lasted much longer. The replacement nozzle only said PowerBrush on it.

I have several of them

One is new in the box, they are great for pet hair and surface litter, but on thicker carpet not so great.

It just shows the plain White Preco with Power Brush on it in the Copper Rainbow's manual.
