Having a retractable hose for your central vacuum makes vacuuming even easier. Hide-A-Hose and Doc-It actually store your central vacuum hose right inside your wall, and once done vacuuming you simply retract the hose right back inside your wall. The suction of your vacuum is what's used to make the hose retract back into your wall. There are no moving parts to worry about and no hose left on the floor to put away. The Vacuflo Spot is very similar to the hide-a-hose and is excellent for smaller areas. We also offer the Vacuflo Vroom. This can be installed just about anywhere you need a quick clean up.
Other easy solutions are the WallyFlex, and HolsterVac. Although their hoses don't actually retract, they're quick, very practical, and easy to install. View the HolsterVac Video and see for yourself.
