Recently, it has come to our attention that the clips (part # 12551) that hold down the lids to our wet/dry vacuums are failing in some cases.
We have recently redesigned the lids to offer an improved opportunity to secure the clips. In the event you break the clips during installation, we will replace them at no charge. We apologize for any and all inconveniences this has caused. Please contact us via phone or through our contact page, if you have experienced this issue. For contact information, look in the Support->Contact Us menu.
Here is a link to instructions for placing the clips on our vacuum lids:
