Which Dyson Crevice (Long Nozzle) Tool Do I Need?

Dyson have always made tool fitment awkward.

As an example, the Dyson DC15 had three tools (stair, brush and crevie) all of its own. They fitted no other models of Dyson.

The DC19 had two totally different types of tool socket fitment depending on which variant you have; and if it is a telescopic wrap or not.

That causes spares sellers a world of pain when the buyers don’t check the compatibility data and just buy a tool they *think* may fit because they have “a DC19 of some kind″ and then they want to return it as it doesn’t fit. Which often costs the seller money.

The DC18 was somewhat unique in regards to tool fitment, the DC05 motorhead tools didn’t fit standard DC05 machines and let’s even ask about DC11, DC20 or DC21 models.

But, starting with the DC16hand held models, and more specifically from the Dyson DC22 onward, Dyson started to use this type of tool socket.


But at the same time, they mostly discontinued the normal crevice tool we all know and like that looks like this:


They replaced it – in the name of “progress” – with a new “multi tool” or “combination tool” that looks like this:


The difficulty with the multi and/or combination tools is that people don’t like it.

The multi and/or combination tool is a crevice type tool with a brush tool that slides up and locks into place; two in one. But, they are somewhat expensive and not as effective as their predecessors.

Many people want a normal nozzle/crevice tool the same as those found on earlier models of Dyson such as the DC01, DC04 and DC07.

Dyson did make a similar tool for the DC16 hand held models, but they were – as usual – somewhat expensive, and it was never publicised what other models (if any) they were compatible with. Dyson have since discontinued production of all DC16 spares some time ago, so genuine DC16 spares will begin to fade away.

But, as we often see, the after-market rides over the hill with a solution. This is a normal design long crevice tool that fits most of the later models:




These are the models it fits: DC16, DC19T2, DC22, DC23, DC24, DC25, DC26, DC27, DC28, DC28c, DC29, DC30, DC31, DC32, DC33, DC33c, DC34, DC35, DC36, DC37, DC38, DC39, DC40, DC41, DC42, DC43, DC44, DC45, DC46, DC47, DC48, DC49, DC50 (Small Ball), DC51, DC52, DC53, DC54, DC55, DC56, DC58, DC59, DC63, DC65, DC66, DC75, DC76, DC77, DC78, Big Ball, V6 and Cinetic.

This nozzle tool fits all the models noted above and correctly locks onto the end of the hose properly which many cheap after-market ones don’t. It also fits the end of the wand on a DC24 which most cheaper versions don’t.

This tool is NOT suitable for models DC01-DC15, DC17, DC18, standard DC19, DC20 or DC21.

So with this crevie tool, you can now acess the side of the seats in your car and get into all the awkward little gaps one more with your newer model Dyson vacuum cleaner. Just like you could with the real Dysons of yesteryear.

No more messing about with “multi tools” or “combination tools” that are not narrow enough or quite long enough to get anywhere you want them to; and the later they just fall to bits and the brush comes off.

Want to know something really cool? This crevice tool will not cost you an arm and a leg.
