It is always somewhat tiresome when a small spare part on a Dyson cordless, stick or handheld machine that tends to snap is only available as part of a larger, usually rather more expensive assembly.
If you are the owner of a cordless, handheld or stick model DC30, DC31, DC34, DC35, DC44, DC45, DC56 or DC57 you will be already be familiar with the blue spring-loaded clip that you must press to remove the cyclone canister unit to access the filter.
It sometimes says Filter Filtre Filtro フィルタ- on it (the last one is Japanese in case you wondered).
Sometimes they snap, and replacement clips have been unavailable until just recently.
This little catch is not to be confused with the DC16 catch that that is visually rather similar (but bigger). You can buy that one (part number 910750-02 in case you are a DC16 owner looking for this item).
But if you have a handheld, cordless or stick DC30, DC31, DC34, DC35, DC44, DC45, DC56 or DC57 Dyson vacuum, you need this one.
Previously, you didn’t used to be able to obtain these, but now you can.
Here is where you can get one:
