Pentair Kreepy Krauly Kruiser Safety Vac-Lock Fitting (K12500)
The safety vac-lock fitting is a replacement part that was made by Pentair. The same high-quality materials were used to manufacture the original factory part. Making this a genuine OEM product.
This part was designed for the Kreepy Krauly Kruiser suction cleaner 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 hose kit. 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 your pools surface.
This safety vac-lock fitting is white 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. 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.
