Lifetime Achievement.

Did you know there’s more than one type of vacuum belt? Some models use “lifetime belts,” which theoretically will never need to be replaced. Here’s how they work:

  • The good kind of tension

    Traditional flat belts, or “stretch” belts, can stretch out and lose tension the more they’re used, resulting in the brushroll not turning as well. That means they should be replaced once a year to maintain performance. Lifetime belts, however, will not stretch out, maintaining tension for the life of the vacuum under normal working conditions.

  • Durable,but not invicible

    Lifetime belts are designed to last as long as the vacuum does, but only if they’re used properly. If you vacuum up something harmful to the brushroll, like socks or rugs, a lifetime belt could break and need to be replaced.

  • All belts not the same

    You can’t use a lifetime belt in a vacuum designed for a flat belt, and vice versa. If you have a broken belt and you’re not sure what type of replacement to get, take a look at your owner’s manual — it’ll tell you whether you need a flat belt or a lifetime belt.
