Product fits snugly (as expected) between the 2-1/4" dust port on my Rigid Oscillating Edge/Belt Spindle Sander and my 1-1/4" Shop Vac hose. This product fits inside the 2-1/4" port and over the 1-1/4" hose end (see pictures I've added to "customer images" section of this product. The actual dimensions of the large end are 2.25 OD x 2" ID and the small end is 1-7/16 OD x 1-1/4: ID, sorry to not be able to post more accurate dims to a 2+ decimal places, but my electronic caliper has died. Also, the product is 3-5/8" long overall, for what that's worth.

I was very nervous ordering this part since the adapters at Lowes didn't fit and I wasn't sure the right adapter existed, but this does the job and I'm very pleased.

Unlike other products that were cited as bosch-fitting, this product fits my bosch 4100 table saw port and my bosch 1181 router table fence dust exhaust port. The adapter is tapered for a snug friction fit. The other end snuggly attaches to my shop vac. Exactly what I hoped to receive - no more duct tape!

I bought probably 5 different adapters from the local big box stores trying to adapt shop vac hose to 2 1/2" DC fittings and none of them worked. I ordered one of these as a last resort and I'm glad I did- the tapered design fits snug down in a 2 1/2" DC port and doesn't come out without really pulling on it.

Worth every penny for hooking up to my random orbital sander and saving my lungs.

At first I thought I had the answer to my shop vac dilemma and ordered the 2 1/4 x 1 1/4 inch adapter. In fact I order two. Was I disappointed to see the small end was the same size as my hose---1 1/2". I spoke with a service rep for Rockler, and though she was very apologetic and understood my frustration, she couldn't help me except with free shipping back to Rockler, which was fair. The small end is marked 1 1/4" but after "miking" it, the real size is 1.44". I did take off my original adapter on the Shop Vac and "miked" the adapter and it measures 1.23"x 2.25". I know there are others on this site that have the same mismatch problem and others who don't. I'll probably split my hose and then clamp it on the new adapters or maybe tape it, rather than send it back. And the other end fits snugly inside both my DeWalt job saw and my "Steel City" planer.
PS I'm giving it two stars--- with 5 star for service and 1 star for product.
I don't know if it will come up but I did order this from Amazon but through Rockler.
Sincerely Jim Meehan

Good product. Well made
Size mentioned is actual inside dimensions. As it should be in my opinion.
Some other mfg.. give the outside diameter and cause problems were customer thinks it is too big for the inside opening.
Measure inside diameter as well as outside dia. When going to supply store ask are the measurements stated inside or outside. Some mfg. do not state this on product.

Not sure why no one else has this. Am I the only one with the older 1 1/4" shop vacs? I see all the 2 1/2" ones and I was just about to go buy one when I found this. Fits perfectly on the back of my Bosch 4100 table saw. My 1 1/4" shop vac nozzle fits snuggly into the smaller end. No more duct tape rig job. Perfect part.

Oh it is made okay I guess, it doesn't really fit my hose but then there are 346 different sizes of hose. How would you ever know this without a standard?

I guess I'll keep it because it is twice as costly to return it as it is worth.

Measure correctly my friend, there is nothing cheap about this part.

This adapter fits the Bissell Garage Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum and the Ryobi 4 in. x 36 in. Belt/Disc Sander. There are 2 plastic ridges inside the vacuum port of the sander that required sanding down slightly with my Dremel to allow the adapter to slide further into the port to permit a snug fit. It fits perfectly.

I tried a "universal" adapter and it didn't work. The diameter of the largest part was exactly the same size as the end of the Shop Vac hose, 2-1/2". This one fits perfectly. Now that I know it fits, I'm planning to order two more for my other shop tools.

I was searching high and low (mostly at my local big box hardware stores) for an adapter to fit my 1-1/4" shop-vac hose to the 2-1/4" dust collection port on my router table. This fits the bill perfectly.
