The creative design of this side-opening valve has revealed a new look to those traditional vertical-opening valves. It has also provided an opportunity to accommodate installation on the baseboard, which is becoming increasingly popular among home owners. This new side-open door fits most existing CVS mounting plates and can be used for new homes or to upgrade most older inlets with an attractive modern look.
Side Open inlets provide easier access to the hose port. The full size door can open 180° to swing out of your way when plugging in your vacuum hose. The door hinge spans the full height of the valve for extra support and durability. The hinge spring is tuned to provide the perfect balance of closure resistance and easy opening. The full door design of the Side-Opening inlet conceals the door hinge rod and spring from every angle for a clean finished look. The surface of the inlet valve is molded with a ultra fine texture providing a matte finish for the solid built-in color.
Model CV2005 is a low voltage inlet, commonly referred to as a 'universal' inlet and allows hose control of your vacuum system. A hose with a pig-tail corded cuff is required in order to run a powered beater brush with universal inlets. Fits all standard low-volt and universal (pig-tail) 1.5" central vacuum hoses. Fits all Hayden, Vaculine and most other inlet mounting plates with the standard 3-7/8" two screw vertical mounting. Side-Opening inlet valves are also available in Direct Connect for both the SuperValve and ElectrValve styles, see the similar items tab.
