I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get quadraflex brush strips for Hoover concept one and two? I have a concept one and two and they desperately need new brush strips. They seen better days. Thank you.

If it's the inserts similar to what the vibra groomer uses there pretty cheap. If it's a rare brush I seen one only one insert for $30.
If it's not the vibra groomer type it probably would be cheaper to buy a new one.

I actually saw that one on eBay and looks like it actually goes to convertibles and dial a matics.

U know, I took a couple of old worn brush strips that came from a convertible/dial a matic and it fits on the concept agitator bar. Should stay in place once I screw in the end caps.

Those brush strips have been NLA for at least 15 years. Hoover started selling the Elite-style brushroll that was used in the Powerdrive uprights which is also NLA. The metal roller was 48416009 and the new roller was 48414013. Your best bet would be to find a used roller on eBay. If all else fails, you can always modify a CWP Tempo brushroll like this guy did. I've done it myself and it works decently.

If it's a brush insert there at be a good solution. Its crossbranding but eureka and Hoover have both used same brush roll different name. The eureka vibra groomer 2 I'm assuming would fit. The Hoover agitator brush roll was produced for a while. Then eureka vibra groomer production started likely as expired paten.
The one just like Hoover is vibra groomer 1. They are not cheap. The vibra groomer 2 you can get for $15.
If you want the vibra groomer 1 is dead to rights Hoover agitator brush roll. If you want a good brush roll and economical vg2.
The only issue may be using Hoover brush roll end caps on eureka brush roll. I believe Hoover pentagon or hexagon is bigger than eureka's.

I am in the same boat, needing new strips for a concept that has worn them down so far they only act as beaters, if that. I have heard that the brush strips for the convertible will work, but the bristles are longer than the concept bristles and rub against the back of the brushroll housing. If only there was a way to trim them easily.

Hi again these will work for your convertibles too.
I'll try a set on my concepts as these brush strips work great for my convertibles.

@Gj9696 I forgot to mention that the brush strips in my link is longer than the original but they do fit but the ends will require trimming.
Happy to help.
