I found this really old model of an upright vacuum cleaner discarded in the trash area of my mother's condo building. It needed a new belt to work. Guess the previous owner couldn't be bothered to look around to replace it. I just did a search on the vacuum cleaner company's website and found the generic equivalent of the belt that would work. Found the product at Ace in a multipack for a very reasonable price, with a guarantee to get my money back if it didn't work. How could you go wrong? It ended up to be exactly right, so I got a pretty good vacuum cleaner out of it. Happy, happy that some companies like Ace carry some of the stuff for old products so they can continue to be used.
