Upside Down Vac Sys Adapter?
« on: May 24, 2022, 03:18 PM »
Am I losing my mind or was this Vac Sys Adapter for the MFT sent with the swing reversed? It doesn't match the diagram as far as I can tell. I could remove the locking pins and reverse the swing but I'm just kind of surprised this was sent out this way.

Just to update this thread... I did remove and replace the locking pins and reversed the swing to match the diagram. I was able to install everything correctly after this. I'm surprised this missed their quality control - anybody else have similar experiences with accessories like this?

i have 2 of them w 0 problems.

It does take some thought to think how the bracket attaches to the MFT.
