FOR A LIMITED TIME CHECK OUT THE 80612700 GREY MUFF THAT WAS USED BY THE SERVICE TECHS, IN THE FIELD!!
They were usually sold in commercial situations or older domestic units, especially the Tellus branded Nilfisk products which are sold in New Zealand.
It meant for extreme flexibility and easy removal of the bent tube for removing blockages or for joining together lengths of hose.
The tapered hose was meant to reduce hose blockages occurring away from the operator where they would be oblivious to it. If an item was of sufficient dimensions to enter the pipe, there was a good chance it would continue unhindered to the dust container as the hose diameter increased. Otherwise, it could be easily retrieved out of this muff arrangement.
To easily dis-assemble, compress the joint in one hand and slip a ring off with the other hand.
Once you've done it a few time, you'll get the knack!!
