Hayward VacLock Safety Wall Fitting (Black)
The vac lock is a replacement part that was made by Hayward. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
This part was designed for these suction cleaners and is a threaded quick-connect adapter which is meant to connect itself to the vac port or vacuum line on your pool wall (if your pool has one, otherwise you will be using the skimmer) which then connects the sectional hose. The hose is then connected to the cleaner itself giving it the sucking power which allows the cleaner to operate and clean the entirety of the surface of your pool.
This vac lock fitting is black and has a spring action door making it easy to identify. Also, it was designed with a threaded base so that way it can be connected to the pool wall however, after time and use it may be a little harder to disconnect that's why we always recommend using Teflon Tape when installing this part to avoid this situation, making it easy for all customers to remove when the tape is used. you can find this tape at most hardware stores located across the country.
