DIY Grip Applicator (Vacuum)
« on: February 23, 2016, 02:57:06 PM »

Vacuum Grip Applicator DIY Guide

Step one:

Go to your hardware store and puchase:
 - 1x 250mm long 50mm diameter pvc tubing


- 1x multiplier 50mm


- 1x decrease diameter from 50mm to 32mm (or whatever size your vacuumcleaners pipe is.


- 1x roll of insulation tape if you dont have it

Step two:
 
- Measure the length needed for your grip setup (harrow, SH or LH would be different)
- The pipe has to go on both ends of the multiplier, so you need to cut it, i used a hacksaw. Measure how much you need.
- The decreaser goes on the other opening (the 45 degree pipe)

Step three:
- Put it all together, tape any connection, sand down the edges and try it out!.











Oh- and by the way - it works on octopus Grips as well!

This is my most favourite think I have seen on here in ages.
right down to the fact I was irritated by the bar code sticker still being on the pipe!!!

Where did you buy your piping from, was it from one of the larger DIY stores?

I fancy giving this a go :)

Any plumbers merchants (Graham's, PTS etc.) or DIY store like Screwfix/B&Q/Wickes will stock it pal
