Product Description
Old design, get the NEW design here,
compact cheaper & nicer all around, see the yellow image above.


Use your attachments from your old Dyson handstick vacuums with your new Dyson V8.
The V8 reversed the connectors for its tools/attachments, so the old pre V8 tools cannot click into the V8.

Note: This model has the same dimensions as the button/clip on the Dyson accessories, making it stick out ~1cm more than is strictly needed. So...This is not the adapter you are looking for...



This adapter takes non-powered¹ pre V8 tools and clicks into the V8 vacuum.
Both the older circa-DC35 tubular tools and newer DC59/V6 ones with the two tabs on the side fit. The tools are held by a firm friction fit.

This product sux pretty well, but there is a small gap letting a little air through the adapter. It has provision for an o-ring to be inserted to fully seal the gap. See the picture, you will need a 34mm ID 2mm CS² o-ring. It does work well without the seal, see the video below.

Check my shop for wall mount holders for V8 & pre-V8 tools, and other mounts.

¹ Powered tools fit, but obviously won't get power...
² O-rings are commonly specified by Internal Diameter (ID) & Cross Section (CS). Some online sources specify Outside Diameter & Width or Thickness. This would be 38mm OD x 2mm Thick. Bigger is bad, a smaller 37 OD/33 ID x 2mm ring will also fit. Push the o-ring into the recess & under the raised ridges with a small screwdriver etc.
I found one for $0.25 at a local shop selling bearings gaskets & hydraulic parts etc, it's not a typical plumbing size, but ask at your hardware store. You can get 10 delivered for a few dollars online, message me if you can't find one.
