The handle swivels to help prevent the hose from getting tangled and kinking. This hose will fit into most central vacuum outlets installed over the last 30 years. It will work with all standard 1-1/4″ diameter vacuum accessories. This hose does NOT supply the electrical connection required to operate an electric power nozzle.
